*Phaedra Parks and her boyfriend Medina Islam are being accused of faking their relationship for this season of Wetv’s “Marriage Boot Camp.”
Parks previously admitted that she and Islam haven’t had sex yet, and they also reportedly live in different states.
During the taping of the show, the mother of two also revealed she and Medina hadn’t had “a lot of dates” prior to coming joining the cast, but wanted to use the show as a means to test “where he wants to go”.
As noted by thejasminebrand, after an exercise on the show where couples had to imitate each other, one of their co-stars urged Phaedra and Medina to kiss.

This caused some of the other couples to also question the validity of their romance.
Medina is not “horny”. Medina is a grown ass man in a supposed relationship with a grown ass woman and would just like to have intimacy like most grown ass people. If Phaedra doesn’t want to, she should move along. #marriagebootcamp pic.twitter.com/4xDVTrSVtn

Phaedra previously explained her decision to hold out on adding sex to the equation with Medina.
“Well, it’s a decision I made. Medina was definitely totally against it, but for myself, I needed to know him in an intimate way outside of a physically intimate way because prior to Medina I dated a guy in Chicago. And that was a long distance relationship and it was very passionate, but when we became physical, it hindered us getting to know each other intimately on any other level.”
