Phaedra Parks Reveals Why She Hasn’t Defended Porsha Williams About Kandi Burruss Rumors

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks has taken a lot of heat from viewers this season for not defending Porsha Williams regarding rumors about Kandi Burruss’ sexuality, especially when she is partly responsible for spreading them.

But when Porsha appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Sunday night, she told one caller that she can handle Kandi herself. “I mean, I can hold my own. There were some moments in the season, I was like, ‘Frack, come on!'” she explained. “But Phaedra’s her own person. I’m my own person. And most of the time when I’m in confrontation, they’ve said something directly about me, so I’m always gonna speak up for myself.”

Fellow WWHL guest, Charlamagne Tha God, saw things differently. “You know the friend that’ll fight for you and a friend that won’t,” The Breakfast Club host said. “She’s just one that probably won’t.”

Phaedra happened to be in the audience to defend herself. “The thing is, if I say something, I’m not going to be out of my element. I’m an attorney. I have jobs, so I’m going to not be getting crazy or ratchet because I have to go back to the City Hall, and I have to do real work,” she explained. “So I’m not going to be portraying myself any kind of way getting slime balled with the rest of these people. I’m not doing that. I’ve got five degrees for a reason.”
