It’s time for Phaedra Parks to pay the piper on part three of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.
As the conversation turns to issues surrounding #LesbianGate — friendships are rattled like never before in part three. Host Andy Cohen has Phaedra in the hot seat as he finally confronts her for starting the rumor that Kandi Burruss takes laps in the lady pond.
“The question at the dinner was, did someone call Kandi a lesbian?” Phaedra says. “In order for her to be a lesbian, that would mean she is only sleeping with women, correct? I never said she was a lesbian.”
“You said she was sleeping with a woman,” Andy shoots back.
“That doesn’t mean you’re a lesbian!” Phaedra responds.
Phaedra being an attorney and all — gives a technical excuse — while she never used the word “lesbian,” Phaedra did imply that Kandi and Shamea Morton were lovers by using a sexuality suggestive hand gesture while talking with co-stars, Sheree Whitfield and Porsha Williams.

But Andy is no fool and continues to hammer Parks, “Did you not think, hmm, could this be what I said about Kandi and Shamea?”
“No, I didn’t,” Phaedra answers. “Because, when the conversation was had about Kandi and Shamea, and I said that, I wasn’t even going at Kandi at all. I was upset about what Shamea had said. Kandi just happened to be collateral damage.”
Shamea Morton sits down with the ladies to confront her BFF Porsha — raising questions about Porsha‘s budding friendship with Phaedra.
“So, you just threw Kandi under the bus?” Shamea asks. “And Todd?”
“I didn’t say they had slept together for years,” Phaedra adds. “I said they were…” before making that same sexually suggestive gesture with her fingers once more.
