LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Did Phaedra Parks date Chuck Smith at Clarke Central High School in Athens, Georgia? NeNe Leakes asks on RHOA this month if Phaedra Parks dated NFL football player Chuck Smith when she, NeNe and Chuck attended Clarke Central High School. Chuck says “no”. And Phaedra tells viewers that NeNe’s other statements about her were false.
Who are Chuck Smith and Mynique Smith? NeNe Leakes is bringing some old blood into the RHOA cast this week. NeNe questions if Chuck has dated Kandi Burruss and Phaedra before. NeNe tells viewers “they said in the past that he dated Phaedra.” She adds “Phaedra graduated in ‘89. Me chuck and Phaedra all used to go to the same high school.”
The school is Clarke Central High School in Athens, Georgia. NeNe asks Chuck “did you use to date Phaedra?” Chuck replies “nah, that was a rumor.” But NeNe says “she had a rep in Athens.” Yet since that telecast has aired, Parks has denied the same and NeNe has apologized.
Leakes tell news “I never said I knew Phaedra in school. I mean why would I say that? She’s 21 years old and I’m 121 years old, right? I’m sure that’s what she would want the world to think. Hit your rewind button! I didn’t say I knew Phaedra was ‘The — Doctor,’ I said it was a rumor! We have all heard rumors about somebody we didn’t go to school with. It wasn’t said with malicious intent, but it was said. I’m definitely a jokester, but the one thing I don’t practice is lying.”
Nene further tells news “This is the show we signed up for! Don’t get new now! I can’t count the number of times Phaedra has lied about my character. It works like this: don’t ever think you can dish on me and I can’t do the same to you.”
She adds “Let’s welcome Chuck and Mynique to the show! As you can already tell, Chuck knows a few of these ladies in more ways than one! I’m not privy to the relationships he’s had with the other ladies, but I have heard all the rumors, so stick around, I think he does a pretty good job of letting us know. I asked all the ladies to join me on a girls’ trip to Savannah, Georgia. Girls’ trips are always good to do. If they don’t do anything else, they will make you glad to arrive and happy you departed.”
