LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Are Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta after this season? While Phaedra and Bravo have yet to comment about her future with the show, the real indicator might in fact be her BravoTV.com presence. Parks has gone virtually silent on BravoTv.com for months. Phaedra on BravoTv.com has not commented about the RHOA season all but once, back in November of last year, LALATE can report. The last time another housewife did that, Adrienne Maloof, she exited her show and Bravo.
In 2013, in the final months of Adrienne Maloof’s last season on RHOBH, reports claimed that Adrienne was possibly leaving the show. While her firing was not yet confirmed at the time, Adrienne began to stop posting blogs to BravoTv.com.
A year ago this month, Maloof had reduced her BravoTv.com blog posts from pages to mere sentences. She also stopped writing about the show, a presumed contract requirement for Bravo Housewives.
In March 2013 LALATE reported the silence by Maloof on BravoTv.com. “Adrienne Maloof all season long was seemingly nearly absent from her BravoTv.com blog requirements. Her mere sentences posts, compared to previous multiple page narratives, seemed indicative of her sentiments at the time.”
Now a year later, the same thing is happening on BravoTv.com, this time for Phaedra Parks. Not since November 4, 2013 has Phaedra written about RHOA on BravoTv.com.
On November 21, she wrote for BravoTv, but not about RHOA, rather about her book. On January 23, Phaedra only comments to Bravo were her book tour dates. And her most recent post on February 20 was yet again not about RHOA either.
In writing their blogs, housewives are given advance copies of the episode hours before so that they can write a blog, submit it to Bravo, and have it live on BravoTv.com shortly after the episode airs. This season, Phaedra writes to BravoTv.com a different scenario. “Unfortunately, I did not get to watch Sunday’s episode but have been told that it was full of drama and chaos, which is becoming the norm for us.” She even adds “And since I have not seen this week’s episode, I will refrain from commenting on it.” But LALATE can report that Phaedra has not been commenting about RHOA on BravoTv.com the entire season, with the exception of that November 4 post. Will that change after tonight’s episode, and is Phaedra returning or leaving the show? That remains to be seen.
