Reality star Phaedra Parks's career and net worth must be getting a boost on The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, a Peacock spinoff of Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise. In the show’s second season, which debuted in June, Parks joins other Housewives favorites at Real Housewives of New York alum Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires home. Parks also appeared in an episode of The Real Housewives of Dubai in July, meeting up with cast member Caroline Brooks, a friend of hers, in the United Arab Emirates.
But fans are clamoring for Parks to return to the reality show that made her a star: Bravo’s long-running The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The former attorney exited RHOA in 2017, when she was reportedly fired for spreading a particularly nasty rumor about costars Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, as TMZ reported at the time. It seems, however, that viewers have forgiven and forgotten.
Fans are demanding Phaedra Parks’s return to ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’
It seems like Parks’s appearances on Ultimate Girls Trip and The Real Housewives of Dubai reminded fans how much they enjoyed this “Queen of Shade.” On July 6, one fan tweeted, “I missed Phaedra on my TV screen @BravoTV, bring her back.”
“Phaedra needs to bring her ass back to housewives,” another fan tweeted on July 7. “She cracks me the f—k up.” And that same day, a third fan wrote, “@Bravo, please bring Phaedra back on RHOA.” Another fan tweeted a theory that day: “I feel like Bravo having Phaedra on Girls Trip and Dubai is the networks’ way of figuring out if they should really bring her back...”
Not everyone is so enamored, though. On July 8, one naysayer tweeted, “Y’all can put Phaedra in every city of Housewives. Whilst her quirky remarks and shade are entertaining, I will never forget that lame, reckless s—t she did to Kandi.”
With her law and TV careers, Parks has a reported net worth of $6 million
Even now, five years after leaving RHOA, Parks has a net worth of $6 million, reports Celebrity Net Worth. And in case you forgot about her other professional pursuits, check out how she introduced herself on The Real Housewives of Dubai: “I’m an entertainment attorney and I’m also a fledgling mortician.” According to her website, Parks is managing partner of the Atlanta law firm The Parks Group and focuses on entertainment, intellectual property rights, and civil and criminal litigation.
