Is Phaedra Parks trying to wheedle her way back onto the cast of The Real Housewives of Atlanta?
A new report is shooting down rumors claiming that Phaedra wants back in, after she was booted for creating and spreading the vicious drugging/rape lie about Kandi Burruss and husband, Todd Tucker. A source dished to the outlet that Phaedra remains off the cast, and has not filmed any scenes — yet.
“Phaedra has been talking to some of the women of RHOA again but has not filmed any scenes so far,” reports US Weekly. “They are still filming so anything could happen and there is room for a cameo but she has not returned and obviously still isn’t part of the cast.”

In June, AllAboutTheTea.com exclusively reported that Porsha had cracked and agreed to film with the ostracized Bravoleb. Porsha’s cooperation would supposedly aid in a smooth transition, as Phaedra exited the RHOA stage.
“Porsha has agreed to have a sit-down with Phaedra,” the insider explained.
“Porsha is the only one agreeing to film scenes with Phaedra,” the source told AllAboutTheTea.com. “Bravo wants to tie up loose ends, before Phaedra exits the show. They don’t want her departure to look abrupt and awkward.”
The Season 10 trailer reveals Kim Zolciak stepping into Phaedra’s spot on Team Porsha—the reality star asking Kim is she was her “new Frack.” Phaedra and Porsha called themselves Frick and Frack, during Season 9.
The Atlanta attorney starred on the Bravo show for seven seasons, before sealing her own fate in what Andy Cohen called “a megawatt lie.”
“The question that we look at now with Phaedra is, when the reunion ended, none of the other women wanted to have anything to do with her. So that’s what you have to look at,” Cohen told E! in May. “How do you shoot a show about a group of friends when no one is speaking to one of the friends?”

Cast member, Sheree Whitfield, weighed in at the time, citing trust issues as one reason Phaedra’s return would be difficult.
“I don’t know, it’s so hard right now. It’s hard to establish trust with someone like that because, for me, it seemed that she showed no remorse for what she did and for her actions,” Whitfield said. “I think it will be hard for any of the women to forgive.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 premiers on Sunday, November 5 at 8:00 p.m. ET. on Bravo.
