Like many Real Housewives of Atlanta fans, Andy Cohen was left shocked after the revelation that Phaedra Parks started a rumor accusing Kandi Burress of attempting to drug and take advantage of Porsha Williams.
The allegations became a major part of their storylines towards the end of season 9 and during part four of the reunion, Porsha Williams finally admitted that it was Phaedra Parks who started the rumor that Kandi Burruss wanted to drug her. The big reveal even left host Andy Cohen “surprised.”
Andy elaborated on that reveal during a special edition of Reddit’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) series which took place during Sunday’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen after show.
He was asked by a fan to name the moment he knew that Phaedra hadn’t been honest about the events surrounding the Kandi rumors. “I mean when Porsha said, basically when she said she had when she copped to it,” he said. “I was really stunned.”
He went on to note, “I was always took Phaedra totally for face value. I always did” when WWHL guest Kim Zolciak-Biermann asked him if he always thought the Atlanta attorney was “legit.”
Kim also commented about the reunion on Sunday’s WWHL, with the Don’t Be Tardy mom calling her “sneaky,” adding that while the other RHOA ladies were very emotional during the season-end sit-down Phaedra seemed more stoic about the events. “She’s just, like, not there, I felt like,” Kim said.
It has been reported that Parks will not be returning for RHOA season 10 after seven seasons on the reality show, but Bravo had no comment.
