Fans of NeNe Leakes took to social media after the most recent airing of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" in support of Phaedra Parks returning to the show. Many of Leakes fans are still in full support of the star of the show but feel she has lost the fire that made her fan favorite in earlier seasons.

Courtney_G tweeted, “ATL is MISSING funny when Nene is not on her game and with porsha sad... everyone this season is taking life & the show too seriously... Need a lil phaedra and her funny kids back!”

Another fan, TheFinisherAri, tweeted to Parks and one of the show's executive producer Andy Cohen, “I And I especially love @PhaedraParks like she needs to come back@Kandi can get over it or leave, please come back @Andy make her come back please we need nene, phaedra and porsha.”

Other fans on Twitter feel that NeNe, the original star of the show, is losing her luster and feel the rest of the cast is dragging the show down from its heydey.

TheLeopardMan tweeted, "“I hope NeNe's alleged departure isn't permanent. She should come back the following season refreshed and more relaxed. Also, this would be a great time to bring back Sheree and Phaedra, make Yovanna, Tanya and Marlo permanent and get rid of Kenya, Kandi, Cynthia and Eva. #RHOA”

Parks Still Sparks

Parks was a part of the main cast from season three to nine. She was known for her blistering retorts and one-liners, her over-the-top celebrations, pageantry and even a pregnancy photo shoot with her then-husband Apollo with the two eating from opposite ends of the same dill pickle. She had infamous beefs with Kenya Moore, starting with their competing workout video production in season five. Parks once referred to Moore as, “A beauty queen on bath salts,” and that, “Her booty was more lumpy than a bad batch of gravy.”

Phaedra's Other Ventures

As many fans of the show already know, Parks has many business ventures outside her stint on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is an attorney with her own firm called The Parks Group. She attended mortuary school and has served as funeral director at a limited number of private funerals. In the past two two years Parks started a line feminine products as part of a partnership. She launched a line of hygiene products called My Healthy Peach, which included natural towelettes for women.

Parks has dating an actor/businessman named Medina Islam. The couple met through a dating app and Parks has shared photos through Instagram. Parks is ten years older than Islam and the two currently live on across the country from one another. The long-distance love affair is part of the reason the couple will be appearing on another reality show: Marriage Boot Camp later this year.

Parks is also a single mother to sons, Ayden and Dylan. She is divorced from their father, Apollo Nida, who was recently released early on an eight-year prison term for fraud and identity theft.
