Last week, Phaedra Parks turned heads when she posted a questionable photo with Shemar Moore. To most fans, it seemed as if the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star was insinuating that somethin’ was goin’ on between her and Shemar but now the truth has been revealed – well sort of. According to BET, there are a few contradictory claims about Phaedra’s post and now there’s another news outlet blasting her for making an attempt to catch the attention of the Bravo producers. By now, most people know that Phaedra was booted from the Real Housewives of Atlanta earlier this year and things have been a bit quiet for the high-powered attorney, but was her Instagram post a publicity stunt? See for yourself.
Last week, Phaedra’s photo with Shemar was captioned, “The look on bae face when you tell him tonight is your night.” For Shemar, it was actually the season premiere of his show SWAT, but to fans, Phaedra’s statement was loaded and it quickly raised speculation. Most fans had one question: is she really dating Shemar Moore?
After a little digging, it was confirmed that Phaedra and Shemar actually took the photo when they were featured on Watch What Happens last December. Although it was obvious they had lots of chemistry, it was never confirmed whether or not they took things any further. Now, Radar Online has released another report about the situation and the publication alleges that Phaedra shared the post of out desperation for attention but there’s more to it.
The Real Deal:
According to Radar Online, Phaedra is being accused of fabricating a relationship with Shemar just as Kenya’s been accused of marrying for publicity. The publication also confirmed what many people have been thinking. Phaedra is not dating Shemar Moore. However, they do “speak occasionally.” “Phaedra spoke to the producers several times but they declined her attempt to earning a guest or cameo role this season,” an insider told Radar. “She’s not dating Shemar Moore but they speak occasionally and are friendly.” The site also added, “Radar exclusively reported that Parks’ pleas with producers began in September because she was ‘desperate for cash.’” She was given a pink slip in May after she was caught lying about Kandi Burruss attempting to rape and drug Porsha Williams.”
So there you have it. Phaedra and Shemar aren’t an item and the post was probably just a way to congratulate him for SWAT.
