Phaedra Parks, the high powered attorney on "The Real Housewives" of Atlanta, is explaining why she did not help her cast mate and friend Porsha Stewart with her divorce.
Stewart learned on Twitter that her estranged former NFL playing husband Kordell Stewart was divorcing her last March. However, Stewart is publicly opening up about her feelings concerning her estranged spouse in a teaser for the new season of the show. Porsha, the granddaughter of civil-rights leader Hosea Williams, was shocked by the news and publicly admitted it.
"It was just terrible... to hear him say, 'She wasn't home at a certain time so I locked her out?' That was really, really hard to listen to listen to…," Porsha told her mother and sister on the show between tears. "Seeing Kordell at the deposition, was like an out-of-body experience…"
Parks appeared on The Rickey Smiley radio show recently where she revealed why she did not take Stewart on as a client in her time of need.
"I really don't like divorces. I've never really liked divorces," Parks said on the radio show. "After I worked with [Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston] through their divorce, I said I would never do another one. I really don't care to divorce people."
The Atlanta based attorney recently spoke about her views on marriage after fans began to witness tensions in her marriage with Apollo Nida after season six of her show.
After the new season of her reality television series began earlier this month, fans began to see the playful couple that is Parks and Nida begin to bicker on screen. While tensions rose when Parks' fellow cast mate and former beauty queen Kenya Moore began to text message her husband, the former has insisted that she has a strong foundation with the father of her two sons.
Still, Parks readily admits that marriage is not easy.
"Marriage is tough," she told S2S magazine recently. "The more time you can spend with your spouse-definitely quality time-it sorta makes it a lot better and hopefully it creates more intimacy in the relationship."
