Depending on the day, we get a different report about whether or not Phaedra Parks will be back for Season 7 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Some say she’s taking a break from the show to focus on her family before hubby Apollo Nida heads to jail, while others swear time off isn’t in her future at all.

Phaedra has yet to comment on the rumors herself, but we got the next best thing when her co-star NeNe Leakes opened up to Madame Noire. When asked if Phaedra would be returning for Season 7, NeNe initially said an announcement like that needs to come from Bravo, but soon after gave us a pretty big hint. “Y’all don’t put your money on her not being back, how about that?” NeNe said.


As for what she thinks about Apollo’s current legal situation, NeNe made it clear she’s very empathetic. “You know things happen when you break the law. I like Apollo and I really do hate that this happened. I think Apollo is smart,” the RHoA star said.

Like most people, NeNe also mentioned Apollo and Phaedra’s two children, Ayden, 4, and Dylan 1. “And they have two little young boys…eight years is a long time. That’s a long time to give your life away. I can’t give these people seven days. I hate that it happened, I really do. And I also hate that it’s public. They’re already going through something, he’s got to be going through something, and she’s going through something and now the public is all in it.”

We already know Apollo doesn’t think his marriage to Phaedra will last while he’s away, but maybe she’ll be able to hold everything together while he’s behind bars. Whether or not it’ll all play out on cameras, we’ll just have to wait and see!

Do you believe that Phaedra will be back for RHoA Season 7? Weigh in below!
