Andy Cohen Finally Speaks On Phaedra Parks' Messy Exit From 'RHoA' [VIDEO]
Andy Cohen, executive producer of The Real Housewives franchise, let the public know what the real deal is with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks. The aftermath of the explosive reunion made it abundantly clear that there was no way that Phaedra would be returning for another season. However, people were left guessing exactly which reason would be grounds for termination.

During the NBC Universal Upfronts, Andy told E! News that Phaedra’s dismissal came down to the basic fact that no one wanted to work with her. It’s impossible to film an ensemble cast when the majority of the other women refuse to have anything to do with her. Though, people thought the reason would be the rumors, lies, and accusation of illegal activities.

Even before the reunion aired there were always rumors that she might not be coming back. The most notable sign came from the fact that she removed RHoA from all of her online profiles. 

Next, rumors that she and Porsha Williams had a falling out began to circulate. At the time the rumor said that Porsha had allegedly slept with Apollo Nida, Phaedra's ex-husband. 
Unfortunately, no one could have guessed that Phaedra had set Porsha up with the rumor that Kandi and her husband Todd allegedly wanted to drug and sexually assault her.

When confronted about the truth Phaedra did admit that she said it. However, she first said that it was told to her. Then she claimed that producers of the show were the ones who told her. Andy though says it’s not true and that it would never happen. 

“I don’t believe it and also I know Phaedra and I know everyone in the group. You can’t tell them ‘Go say this on camera…’ It’ just doesn’t work. You ever met a housewife? They do their own thing”

Now the Phaedra is out the door, NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak are reportedly walking back in from the other side for the show's tenth season.
