Phaedra Parks Pulls A Fast One On ‘Married to Medicine’ Fans, She’s Still Lying!
In a startling revelation, it appears that Phaedra Parks has once again hoodwinked Bravo fans, continuing a pattern of deception and untruths, after her exit from The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Phaedra Parks will make her debut on the tenth season of Married to Medicine next week and fans will finally meet her mystery boyfriend, Dr. O. However, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum teased a current romance with a different doctor, ahead of the Season 10 premiere.
“You’ll have to watch to see what happens,” Phaedra said on Page Six’s Reali-Tea podcast. “But yeah, there might be another doctor that’s looming in the picture as well. Love is in the air, honey!”
Phaedra remains fond of her ex despite her decision to split from the pediatric cardiologist.
“Dr. O is definitely one of the most brilliant men that I’ve ever met and dated in my life. I haven’t been known for dating the smartest men, but he’s definitely super smart,” she gushed.
The reality star added of her overseas ex—“He’s a cardiologist, he’s a sweetie pie.”
Phaedra guarded the details of her ex-romance when she officially joined the Bravo cast, as her rollercoaster marriage to ex-husband, Apollo Nida, was often highlighted during her time on RHOA. Phaedra and Apollo share two sons, Ayden, 13, and 10-year-old Dylan.
In May 2014, Apollo pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud and was sentenced to eight years in prison. Apollo was released from prison in July 2019, and spent time in a Philadelphia halfway house before his official release from federal custody, on November 26, 2022.
“TV has not been the best on relationships,” the entertainment lawyer noted.
Phaedra shared that dating within the medical community has been just what the doctor ordered.
“Because my type has definitely not worked for me in the past, I had to make some adjustments,” she explained.
She continued—“What I do like about doctors is they’re smart and if you’re having a heart attack — I seem to love cardiologists — they can obviously revive you and they know CPR.”
The M2M newbie noted—“And you don’t have to worry about getting sick and dying at home because if you’re right next to a doctor, they’ve been trained to save you.”
The attorney labeled a lawyer-doctor partnership as “career goals.”
“Doctors are definitely smart. The conversations are different and the goals are definitely different,” Phaedra said. “Who doesn’t like ‘The Cosbys’? Like, that was the ultimate doctor-lawyer relationship.”
The mom of two shares a friendship with most of the Season 10 “Married to Medicine” cast, including Quad Webb and Dr. Heavenly Kimes.
The Season 10 cast includes Phaedra, Kimes, 52, Webb, 44, Dr. Jackie Walters, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Toya Bush-Harris, Lateasha Lunceford, and cast “friend,” Dr. Alicia Egolum.
The Bravo star also made a cameo on the “Real Housewives of Dubai,” appeared on “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club,” and is set to appear on Season 2 of Peacock’s “The Traitors.”
“It’s a blessing to be able to reinvent yourself and to evolve, so I’m grateful to be here at this moment,” she said. “It’s a great place to be in.”
Married to Medicine returns on Sunday, November 5 at 9 pm ET on Bravo.
