The Real Housewives of Atlanta is not losing cast member Phaedra Parks. She is already filming episodes for the new season, according to multiple reports.

Rumors of Phaedra Parks leaving have run rampant in recent weeks, but she is not doing so, nor is she taking any leave of absence from the Bravo show.

Not only that, but her convicted felon husband - the Phaedra rumors began after a judge had Apollo Nida sentenced to prison - will be back on camera, too.

Well, at least until he ... you know.

Various sources have claimed Phaedra and Apollo are over - he insinuated as much recently - but whatever their status, they've been filming together.

Filming more than usual, no less.

In fact, the producers are reportedly trying to shoot as much of the two as possible before he begins serving his eight-year prison sentence for fraud.

There's a scheduling conflict for you.

It's been a difficult few weeks for Phaedra Parks. 

First her husband, Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight months in prison. Then Nida's pre-slammer press tour revealed that it's over between Apollo and Phaedra, as the Bravo star didn't even bother to attend her man's sentencing,

Now it looks as though Phaedra is trying to avoid having this difficult time in her life broadcast for millions of viewers. Sources say Parks will take a "leave of absence" from the The Real Housewives of Atlanta, starting immediately.

A production insider claims Phaedra has bowed out of the upcoming seventh season in order to focus on her family in the months following Apollo's imprisonment.

Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks are still together despite his prison sentence, at least for now, though reports say the duo may consider an open marriage.

There's no disputing the fact that The Real Housewives of Atlanta pair is going through tough times, with Apollo Nida sentenced to eight years in prison.

Believing that Apollo has not always been faithful to her in the past makes it even harder for Phaedra to stay loyal, on top of his bank fraud conviction.

That's why, allegedly, she's considering an open marriage while he's locked up.

Not sure how she'd explain that to her two little kids, Ayden and Dylan, but it's easy to see how she reached her breaking point when it comes to Apollo.

Apollo Nida was charged with fraud and identity theft back in January, and today, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was sentenced to eight years in federal prison.

Nida was operating a scam that involved setting up fake companies in order to create databases that allowed him to find individuals whose private information he would use to embezzle funds.

He opened fake accounts under real names and funneled cash from auto loans and U.S. Treasury checks into those accounts.

He was also accused of opening a fake auto dealership and applying for car loans using stolen identities.

Nida pled guilty in May, and for a time it looked as though he might be able to cop a plea deal and avoid jail time. 

Those hopes were dashed at his sentencing hearing held earlier today.

Money talks. Ditto ratings. With plenty of each to go around, all six stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are set to return for the upcoming Season 7 on Bravo!

Despite the ladies' differences, and rumors that at least one cast member would be out, every cast member has signed on to return for next winter's insanity.

In addition to Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore, fan faves Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, and even NeNe Leakes have re-upped as well.

The incredibly explosive reunion had insiders calling it "highly doubtful" that both Kenya and Porsha would be back, while NeNe openly mused about leaving.

"For me, It's like a blessing and a curse," said the always-expressive reality star. "It has definitely opened up so many doors and opportunities for me.

"I have been able to do some of everything just from being on this platform," she explained. "But at the same time, it can be very negative and very draining.

Anybody who wants a master class in throwing shade needs to look no further than The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Those ladies can show you how it's done.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show (all FOUR HOURS of it) has gone down as one of the most-watched and talked about in the history of the franchise thanks to the insults and zingers being hurled in every direction. No woman was safe from the wrath of her co-stars. 

The Kenya Moore-Porsha Williams fight that definitely attracted our attention, as did the insults about Apollo Nida's legal woes, Kenya Moore's trifling ways, and Cynthia Bailey's medical problems. Not even Mamma Joyce was safe!

We've compiled a list of the nine best quotes and insults from The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion show to immortalize the drama. Take a look now and then sound off with your favorites in the comments below.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta concluded its epic reunion Sunday, and not one moment too soon. Three installments seemed like overkill, even for this show.

With Porsha Williams having already beaten her down, Kenya Moore was left to spar (verbally) with NeNe Leakes in what felt like an hour-long argument.

They argued over Marlo, the sometimes-recurring star who NeNe allegedly called and said that if she filmed with Kenya, she wouldn't film with her. Ooooh.

Kenya, of course, tried to make this a gigantic issue, not unlike her behavior at NeNe's "benefit," to which she reportedly didn't even give any money.

NeNe challenges Kenya to pick a charity of her choice and for both to write $20,000 checks on the spot. Kenya, clearly uncomfortable, plays along.

NeNe calls her Miss Funk Box, which may be even better than the "Slut From the '90s" diss before The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion fight.

Leakes also mixed it up with Kandi Burruss, whose Mama Joyce is untouchable in her mind, even if Leakes merely points out stuff she actually did.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion special was back last night for part two of three ... and there were no fights this time. Just a great deal of tension.

In the immediate aftermath of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion fight, which we've had a week to process but took place just minutes ago here?

Porsha Williams was done. Left the building. Andy Cohen said Bravo does not condone violence. Kenya Moore defended herself and showed no regrets.

Cynthia Bailey didn’t feel Porsha was “under attack,” as Cohen put it, while NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks said that Kenya provoked her with her props.

Kenya insisted she was just having fun with her bullhorn, scepter and sex toys. Umm, no. “It is a violation to point anything in my face,” NeNe retorted.

Moore doesn’t think props were what caused Porsha's beatdown, rather her nemesis' issues. Kenya, meanwhile, proclaimed an anti-violence message.

All we know is that Kordell Stewart is very happy that she's going by Williams when she's beasting on "s--ts from the '90s." In other plot lines Sunday night:

In the wake of Sunday's explosive reunion, The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Phaedra Parks is standing by her man, Apollo Nida, and her co-star, Porsha Williams.

Parks sounded off on the notorious Porsha Williams-Kenya Moore fight that broke out on set and left little doubt that to a degree, she's a Porsha apologist.

Apollo and Phaedra

"Truth be told, Porsha and I had talked about a lot before the reunion because we were in a very fragile state,” she said on Watch What Happens Live.

“I had warned her," Parks adds of Williams and what might occur.

"This year I wasn’t pregnant ... last year, Kenya had obviously threatened to snatch me up and I guess beat me [while I was] eight and a half months pregnant.”

“But she’s not violent now! Oh, no! Don’t say that, now," Phaedra said sarcastically, referring to Kenya Moore's statement urging an end to the violence.

"I stressed to [Porsha] the importance of just being calm and making sure you maintain the proper decorum. But Kenya has a way of provoking people."

Sunday, The Real Housewives of Atlanta finally showed us what happened when Porsha Williams passed the point of being able to tolerate Kenya Moore.

As widely reported, the final straw was Kenya needling Porsha about ex-husband Kordell Stewart ... then using her megaphone to calling her a “dumb ho.”

You can watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online to see the blow-by-blow, but here's a brief rundown of the events, which came and went rather quickly:

Porsha Williams stood up, saying she was going to f--k Kenya up.

Kenya Moore stood up, too, with prop megaphone in her hand.

Porsha grabbed Kenya's hair and dragged her to the ground.

Someone appeared to yell "drag her, Porsha!" We think.

The cameras cut away before Andy Cohen separated them, so it's unclear just how bad Porsha Williams beat down Kenya Moore in that few seconds.

What's fairly clear is that Kenya stood up, clearly unharmed, and said she was going to get Porsha Williams fired. “You’re gone!” she said, walking away.
