*Phaedra Parks got booted from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” after spreading a vicious rumor that co-star Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and have sex with Porsha Williams. 

Since then, bad blood continues to stew between the two women, with Burruss saying, “I just won’t be a part of that” if BRAVO bosses decide to bring Parks back to the show. 

Rumor has it that if Phaedra’s ex husband Apollo Nida appears on the show following his prison stint- Parks is likely to appear here and there as well, considering they have two young sons to co-parent. 

In the meantime, she’s speaking out about Burruss being against her rejoining the cast.

“I find it amusing, because if she is that concerned about me three years later, I must have really impacted her life,” she told the The Daily Mail. “So I’m glad I touched her like that.”

On rumors that’s she’s coming back to RHOA….“I know there’s lots of rumors swirling around about me returning to the housewives, but I haven’t had any discussions about returning,” she said. “I never say never to any opportunities, but I had a good run and you know, I’m very happy right now.”

Since leaving the show, Parks said she’s been focused on her career.

“My life is very busy, I’m fully booked, everybody knows I’m a mortician and summer is the slow season,” she said. “I’m partnered with one of the largest funeral homes in Atlanta so I do a lot of bodies there. I also go to New Orleans and do some bodies there, you know, whoever calls me, I’m a genius at it. I love it. It’s my ministry. And so if you call me, I will come because that’s my specialty. I love making people look life-like and giving people the proper sendoff.”

She is also teased that a return to TV is on the horizon. 

“I have a new television project on the horizon. I can’t mention it yet, but I’m coming back to the small screen,” she said. “It’s a very popular show and you get to see me in a totally different light.”

As far as her time on RHOA…“It is what it is. Reality shows are not real,” she said. “They’re for entertainment at everyone else’s expense, except the people that make it, so you can’t regret anything.”

Adding, “You just have to accept what it is and keep it moving. I was just a character that they’re manipulating for their own benefit.”
