You can’t keep a good peach down, especially if that peach is the spicy lawyer The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans know as Phaedra Parks.

As Kenya Moore calls her, shady Phaedra has glimpsed back in the Bravo TV spotlight by showcasing her deliciousness on the recent season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club.

Given the reason she was axed from RHOA, Parks certainly has her haters, but in the world of reality TV who doesn’t?  But what her appearance on RHUGT proved, is that Parks belongs on a show.  So, after five seasons away from the show that famed her name, is it time for all to be forgiven and Phaedra to ripen her peach once again?

Well, the queen of shade threw the ultimate shade at her former show and cast-mates.

"“No, I don’t want to pick up a peach,” Parks told ET in an exclusive interview.  “If I wanted a peach, I would have a peach pie, but that’s not…not, as I’ve made it very clear, that’s not what I want to do.  No.  I will be yachting.  Let them continue to sail away on the Titanic, OK?”"


Phaedra Parks hasn’t burned all her Real Housewives of Atlanta bridges

While there may be no repairing her friendship with ex-castmate Kandi Burruss who was the victim of Phaedra’s alleged deceit, Andy Cohen has seemed to embrace Parks and it seems other caste mates of The Real Housewives of Atlanta have moved past the drama.  Not only did Parks mention having a recent conversation with Moore, but she has also been spotted with another RHOA alum, NeNe Leaks.

So, why not mend fences and get her side of the story out there so the reality TV world can move forward?  Parks said she did mention it on RHUGT, but it wasn’t shown which is no big deal since she has no interest in reliving the past.

"“Well, actually we had spoke about it earlier and so they chose not to air it,” Parks said.  “However, that was – and just to be very honest – that was, what now five and a half, six years ago?  And there’s two sides to that story.  You only heard one and obviously they chose not to play the other side.  And so it is what it is, but I’m living in the present.  And I think people realize…the people know, know, and most of the people knew and they still know.”"

There is most likely three sides to that story, but in Bravo TV world, perhaps its best to keep that third side perspective in the eyes of the viewers.

As far as more reality TV goes, if not The Real Housewives of Atlanta, where else can Phaedra Parks bring her funny, yet shadiness to?

Well, if The Real Housewives of Dubai takes off, Parks would be more than accepting of an opportunity to join the cast.  She has already made an appearance and could certainly spice things up.

"“Now that, is a possibility.  That is a strong possibility,” Parks said of joining RHODubai.  “You’ve got to run with people who are obviously running with the same purpose and destination.”"

Was that more shade Phaedra?

Anyway, outside of landing her own reality show, RHODubai could work as Phaedra’s new home or perhaps a RHOA spinoff in a cast that could feature NeNe, Portia Williams, Eva Marcille and Kim Zolciak-Biermann.  Might be something to think about Mr. Cohen and Bravo TV.
