Former 'RHOA' Star Phaedra Parks Teases 'Dramatic' Season 2 of 'Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip', Reveals The Show Will 'Break The Fourth Wall'
Phaedra Parks is an open book and she is spilling all of the piping hot tea — specifically on the upcoming second season of Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip during an exclusive interview with OK!.
While discussing her acting turn as Bernice Whitfield in ALLBLK'S streaming service's new anthology series Covenant on Wednesday, November 10 — the attorney and former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star dished on her experience working with all the ladies from the hit Bravo franchise.
"Everybody brought something so different," Parks revealed about the cast. "To have us all together was definitely, very dramatic, it was a lot of crying, a lot of screaming, a lot of, you know, very like 'my god, someone might get hurt' moments."
When asked what housewife she has love and admiration for (besides Dorinda Medley who she returned the love for) — the mother-of-two's answer was a bit surprising. "I was so drawn to Brandi Glanville. I just think she is the most hilarious, you know, misunderstood woman in the world," Parks dished to OK!.
"But I mean, you know, we just had some moments," the mortician explained about the former RHOBH star, who she said people tend to have preconceived notions about. "You know, like the scorpion I am, if it's fire, I want to touch it and make sure it's hot."
Parks also did not shy away from dropping some memorable tidbits about her fellow housewives. "Jill Zarin, she's hilarious. And she is just like moving like one hundred miles per hour. She is so sweet, " the 48-year-old said lovingly.

"Tamra [Judge] she's so sultry and Vicki [Gunvalson], has a hard shell but ooey gooey on the inside," Parks told OK!. "Everybody brought something so different."
The actress revealed that although fans are used to the regular structure of Housewives, this show will be much different. "We talked about really serious issues and people get to voice their opinions about other people and things that went on on the show, because on this show, you can break the fourth wall," Parks detailed.
"So you get to really hear about real stuff. You know, there's no regard for, 'Hey, we are being reality stars,' we were talking about, you know, real stuff that has happened to all of our shows," the legal mind explained. "I think sometimes people get confused and people want to know the backstory. You will definitely get it."
When asked how she is navigating her latest venture — acting — Parks explained that "I think it's a natural for me." The reality star continued, "It was a natural evolution, of course, being a lawyer. You're used to living a reputation and being a great lawyer and a great mortician is all about details."
"But it was a challenge to me because who would have thought, I mean, I never envisioned it, but when the opportunity presented itself, I said, I want to do this and I want to do it the right way I got in school," she revealed.
