Kim Zolciak and Phaedra Parks didn’t overlap much on Real Housewives of Atlanta (Phae-Phae joined the show in Season 3 and Kimmie left at the start of Season 5) and even when all the ladies did film together they rarely interacted, but we were still curious to know if Kim reached out to her former co-star once she learned that Phaedra’s husband, Apollo Nida, was sentenced to eight years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft.


When Kim was on Watch What Happens Live last week for a one-on-one with Andy Cohen, one viewer was curious to know if the mom of six had reached out to Phaedra, who has two young children of her own, and Kimmie’s answer may surprise you!  

“No,” Kim said. “I don’t know Phaedra like that so I feel like it’s kind of inappropriate.”

While this may seem a bit cold, we kind of agree with Kim here, or at the very least understand where she’s coming from. She wasn’t close with Phaedra on RHoA, so it might seem a bit weird and forced if she suddenly called her up to say she was sorry to hear Apollo was headed to the clink. Sure, everyone appreciates good wishes, but Phaedra could interpret Kim reaching out as disingenuous.     

Still, as a mom herself, Kim noted that she has empathy for Phaedra’s sons, Ayden, 4, and Dylan 1. “I do feel bad for her two little boys,” the wigged one clarified.  

Are you surprised that Kim hasn’t reached out to Phaedra in the wake of Apollo’s sentencing, or does her reasoning make sense? Sound off below!
