Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star Phaedra Parks is currently filming scenes for the show, ending this weekend’s speculation that she would leave the show in the upcoming season and only return once her personal life calmed down.
RumorFix.com and others reported this weekend, Phaedra would take a haitus for season seven and then return for season eight once the media fanfare about Apollo Nida going to prison and the state of her marriage had died down.
Moreover, she reportedly intended to use the time off to focus on her two minor sons while their father was in jail… leaving her a single mother with an estranged, imprisoned husband.
Her alleged reason for “leaving”, a reported scene taking place between Apollo and Kenya filmed recently in which he “confessed” to sexting in hopes of bedding his co-star. Kenya refused to confirm or deny when asked about the scene.
However, now a source tells TMZ.com the rumours were false.
Both Phaedra AND Apollo have been filming for the show for almost a month, in order to get as much footage as possible before he begins his eight-year prison term.
Their storyline will be his upcoming sentence and how it’s affecting his family and his marriage. Phaedra is filming fewer scenes than originally expected, but she’s not leaving the show.
