Phaedra Parks: What's Next for the Fired Real Housewife?

by at . Comments

Earlier this month, Phaedra Parks was fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta for doing something bad.

But now the embattled reality star is intent on doing some things that are good.

Phaedra Parks Laughs It Up

First, a flashback:

On the fourth installment of this season's Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, the truth finally came out about an unconfirmed, disturbing rumor that had dominated the series throughout the previous several weeks.

Did Kandi Burruss and her husband actually plan to drug Porsha Williams?!?

With the intention of taking her home and raping her?!?

Absolutely, positively not, according to Burruss, who had no idea how such wild chatter ever made its way around the Internet.

Until we found out on the aforementioned reunion:

Parks got it started. She's the one who spread it. All because some unnamed person "brought" it to her, Phaedra said in her (weak) defense.

Parks made this stunning emotion in oddly serious fashion.

She didn't seem remotely ashamed of her actions, which may have contributed to why Bravo let her go the day after the reunion special aired.

Yes, The Real Housewives of Atlanta is centered on over-the-top fights and feuds and an endless array of scandalous situations.

But the network had to draw the line at one cast member claiming that another planned to DRUG AND RAPE a co-star.

Phaedra hasn't really addressed her firing, but she did write "New day, new week! Have a magnificent #Monday! #letsgo" on her Instagram account shortly afterward, including that message along with a poster that read:

"Don't let yesterday take up too much of today."

So, in other words, Parks was ready to move on from the drama.

And now we know how she plans on doing so.

First, Parks will appear on an episode of USA Network's upcoming new program Big Star Little Star.

Hosted by Cat Deeley, the game show will test celebrities and their kids to see how much they know about each other, pitting three famous families against one another each week.

Parks will be a contestant along with her seven-year old son, Ayden.

However, Phaedra has said she will donate any winnings to charity.

From there, the Bravo alum will focus on her own nonprofit for children.

“Phaedra is currently working on her Phaedra Foundation,” an insider tells Radar Online, adding that she also has a rather big personal project on tap:

"She’s starting the renovation process for the $1.9 million dollar mansion she bought last October."

Will her future plans include any sort of reconciliation with Porsha? We doubt it.

Phaedra Parks is Angry

“[Parks] was like my best friend," Williams has said of Phaedra. [She was] someone I talked to on the phone every single day.

"And for me to feel like she had betrayed me like that, and the fact that I was sitting right there and watched her continue to lie on me about it...

"That’s the part I can’t get past and I don’t know if I ever will. Right now, I just can’t talk to her.”

We don't blame Porsha, do you?

If anyone ever made up stories about how a friend was scheming to drug us and take advantage of us sexually, we'd be royally pissed.

We'd probably never talk to that individual ever again.
