Phaedra Parks to Take “Leave of Absence” From Real Housewives of Atlanta — Report

Fix it, Jesus!

According to RumorFix and Straight From the A, Phaedra Parks will take a "leave of absence" from the currently filming Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, effective immediately.

Why? Well, you probably know why. Her husband Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight years in prison — and was recently confronted on camera about the Kenya Moore texts — and sources (via RumorFix) claim Phaedra wants to stop airing her personal problems on Bravo. She has reportedly decided to take a break so she can "focus more on her family following Apollo’s imprisonment."

The site added that Phaedra plans to return for Season 8, but insiders said producers may not even allow her to come back. So — if true — this could potentially be a permanent split. (She'd still be seen a little bit on Season 7, from the footage already taped.)

Phaedra hasn't made any statements on RHOA, just tweeting most recently about upcoming book signings for Secrets of the Southern Belle, and other events.

We don’t want to lose our shade queen Phaedra, so we’ll hold out hope that maybe there was a miscommunication and she’s not really planning to leave. Until there’s official confirmation from Phaedra or Bravo, it’s still just a rumor. But if she really is bowing out for now (or forever), we can’t really blame her. We’ll mostly blame Apollo — and maybe Wendy Williams a teensy bit.

Would you be sorry to see Phaedra leave RHOA, or not miss her too much?
