Are Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks friends now?

Kenya and Phaedra’s feud continued until Phaedra’s RHOA exit. In 2017, Bravo fired the attorney for allegedly repeating a rumor that Kandi Burruss tried to drug and sexually assault Porsha Williams.

Since then, she hasn’t been asked back to RHOA but is back in the Bravoverse, starring on Married to Medicine and Peacock's The Traitors. Although Phaedra is no longer on RHOA, she shared that she’s remained in contact with some of her co-stars, including Kenya.

However, the Southern Belle shared in 2021 that they didn't have much of a friendship.

"We speak on social media," Phaedra shared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live in May 2021, "But I haven't seen her."

The meetup came after Megan called for several RHOA stars' help after Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens postponed her show, per The JasmineBrand. Dickens recommended against holding the show due to safety and sanitary concerns stemming from a water main break that took days to resolve.

Many RHOA fans were elated to see Kenya and Phaedra in the same room, with many fans calling for her to come back to RHOA as a guest, if only for us to hear her, Kenya, and Sheree's debrief. While that likely won't happen, it's safe to say Kenya and Phaedra are finally back on good terms.

Fans will recall that Kenya had expressed her desire to have children as a single woman. The “sperm bank” read heard worldwide became one of RHOA’s most memorable moments.

In July 2022, the scene resurfaced during social media’s “If I Text You” meme challenge. Phaedra, who left RHOA in 2017, said she still gets approached about the line years after the reunion.

“In that moment, I was so frustrated because our relationship, Kenya and I, it had been so tumultuous, and I was just to a boiling point,” she recalled to Page Six in August 2022. “And so when people called me once they saw it and they were like, ‘Oh my God,’ I had no idea what they were talking about.”

Phaedra also admitted that she didn’t remember what she said to Kenya until the show aired.

“I am the type of person, once I say what I want to say, I’m done with it,” she added. “I don’t harp on anything. I’m done with it. So I didn’t even think it was really that big of a deal,” she explains. “But everyone was like, ‘Oh my God!’ And I was like, ‘Was it that big of a deal?’”

Kenya confirmed Phaedra’s remarks and described their relationship as “pretty cordial.” Kenya, who married Marc Daly in 2017, also revealed that she regrets her actions against her co-star’s husband.

“I think I could have just distanced myself from Apollo altogether, not been so chummy-chummy, especially when it bothered his wife," Kenya admits in a WWHL clip from January 2021.
