Phaedra Parks house

Former reality TV star Phaedra Parks just listed her Atlanta mansion for $10,000 a month rent. Parks purchased the beautiful north Atlanta mansion for $1.9 million late last year.

The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star has fallen on hard time since she was forced to leave the popular show after running afoul of the show’s producers and co-stars.

Parks purchased the 9,000 sq ft, 6-bedroom, 9 bath mansion, located at 4505 Garmon Rd, in October 2016.

Then the celebrity lawyer lost her reality TV job, and insiders whispered that she still hadn’t moved into the mansion in the Mt. Paran neighborhood.

Parks, whose divorce from jailbird Apollo Nida is finalized, remained in their marital residence while she “renovated” the mega mansion.

But insiders whispered that the monthly maintenance costs for the mega mansion was too much for Phaedra and she was overwhelmed.

It makes sense for the single mom to put the house on the rental market until she lands another well paying reality TV show gig.

    Nice home but but that girl Kandi need to teach these ladies how to live well and be resourceful. Kandi knows how to manage her money well

  • kekeb

    This looks like an old rich white man’s house.. Anyway, leaving reality TV may be a blessing in disguise for her. They filmed her marriage, divorce and what Im assuming were all the worse parts of her adult life. Now they’ve fired you over a lie YOU said the producers told you? This departure needs a severance package.

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    I’m no fan of Kandi, but I’ll give her props for being wise enough to live below her means and keep her resources fluid.

    (And anyway, 9 bathrooms might be necessary for the old woman in a shoe, but most folks can live comfortably with fewer)?

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Ditto!

    Maybe that homosexual blogger that Sandra trashed downstairs, would like to rent Fay-fay’s house. ?

    Lol funky d is that you ?

  • Lene

    When you dig a hole for someone, you end up falling inside yourself. This what happen when you fight dirty.

  • kekeb

    I see my last comment magically disappeared. I agree with u. I suggest Kandi teach a class on financial management and charge people to attend. She’ll make money and help people at the same time. @SANDRAROSE share my idea w/Kandi. I want 10% of the earnings for my idea

    I couldn’t have said it better!

    Pha pha is still living good ,she is getting a home built not far from her current home.

  • Coy little wink

    Wow…who is she trying to impress or keep up with? Her other house was beautiful.. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/93b24eff09ced543aed010ece63cf68937dfef72c4aca60230cf800bb1205080.jpg

    Nice house

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    So was going after Kandi worth it? If only she had fessed up at some point during filming. At the reunion, she still wouldn’t just admit she lied and dragged other people into it. I’m telling you, folks be in your face laughing with you, but be jealous than a MF.

    If Kandi never lifts a finger again to do any work, she will forever collect a royalty check for one song or another. When she’s passed on, it goes to her heir (chil’ren). Phaedra, the real lawyer, can’t compete with that. Lawyer to the stars and she only repped Bobby Brown. He went on record to say whenever she represented him, he went to jail. LOL.

    SN edit: Singer Kenny Rogers had a manse on Garmon road a few years. Y’all that man has an eye for renovating and decorating. The home was listed for about $10M. I don’t remember what that final number was though.

    “I’m telling you, folks be in your face laughing with you, but be jealous than a MF.”

    This!!!
    I’m in the process of extracting a jealous “friend” from my life right now. She’s shown me who she really was plenty of times before…but this last time? I did like Maya Angelou (RIP) suggested & and I believed her.
    Should have believed her the 1st time she showed me.

  • mzwhang90210

    Beautiful home!
    I think what alot of folks with “new money” –like rappers, reality folks, etc. don’t realize is that it’s not just about buying these mansions. There is also upkeep involved.
    From utilities, to housekeepers, gardeners, pool men and cooks.
    Folks just figure in the cost of purchase/move in. Not of monthly upkeep. Which can easily equal or exceed the monthly mortgage.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    That’s unfortunate. I think you, like many of us, let it get to a second or 3rd time cuz we be in denial like, nah, not my friend? They wouldn’t do that. I don’t put anything past anyone these days.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    It’s actually not impressive aesthetic wise. But if you’re impressed by zip codes, it’s the perfect buy (or rental). I saw nothing wrong with the home she and Apollo bought together with those illicit funds he stole. It’s also located in Buckhead and seemed to be the perfect size for a mom with two kids.

  • mzwhang90210

    The deco is kinda “historic” isn’t it?
    LOL.

    I’m sorry I be in and out but u know I love u!!! I’ve been sooo busy at work I can’t even get on during the day. Don’t take it to heart!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I don’t like Kandi momma!! She was out of line. I saw the episode where Phaedra told Kandi about her mom and Kandi was basically like “I can’t do nothing bout her”. That was BS

  • mzwhang90210

    No, not at all. I just mentioned it bc I figured you didn’t see it. I’m like that too. LOL..no worries.

  • IamAllnatural

    Yes, she definitely knows how to get more bang for your buck.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Yup! #preach

  • AG

    Y’all take any bait. The movie industry is booming in ATL. With a lot of films being made down there, so there are opportunities to rent out housing to stars, production teams, etc. Not to mention the opportunities for renting it out as a venue for parties, weddings, etc. I don’t watch that show, so I don’t keep up with the hate on her, but she made a smart purchase.

  • V Dubb

    I was just going to say this looked like an old white persons house…….lololololol all museum like..

  • stanhope

    Ever jealous and aspirational, the wannabe Fakedra overextended herself. In contrast, Kandi, who not only has deep cash but cashFLOW bought her homes out of foreclosure. Even Kim and dummy Kenya did that. What does a single mom with 2 kids need with that amount of space? Nig== rich ain’t rich. she ought to be in jail.

  • http://realitytea.com/ Lady Chatterley’s Lover

    Is that you Phadera?

  • JustB

    She does have a career that could land her legal and long paper under the table… She will be alright

  • RICHIE_RICH

    Thank you. People are so quick to make their assumptions base off of rumors. We don’t know what this woman has. The last I recalled she was getting a home built in buckhead!!

  • Hmmm~?

    Have you forgotten Chateu Sheree?

  • Coy little wink

    The key to real estate is location…..a 900 sq ft house in orange county CA can cost 500k but in Detroit can cost 20k ?

  • BeUtFullSoul

    awww Phae Phae 🙁

  • Justlooknout

    This is what wise folks do. Yassss.

  • NeverSurprised

    It’s not the maintenance she can’t afford, it’s the mortgage. Unlike Kandi and Kenya, who paid all cash for their homes, Phaedra has a huge mortgage on that new house. She put 25% down and has a mortgage of $1.4 mil PLUS a remaining mortgage on the first house. All of that debt, and insufficient income to cover it.

    Apollo is doing time for crimes that they BOTH committed (according to Angela Stanton), but now Parks is suffering in other ways. The postman always rings twice, which means, you may THINK you have gotten away with something, but the universe will always force you to pay for your actions, in one way or another.

  • ThottyPippen

    You’re a devil dam fool, if you’re RENTING for $10,000 a month. Especially if you’re going to be living in the house for a long time. That’s just foolish.

  • Joi Williams

    Very Well said.

  • Coco

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    bye Phaedra.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Some of y’all real hard on pheadrea. What she do to y’all?

  • Please Stop The Madness

    Why the fukk her house look like that on the inside? Like a damn bed and breakfast. WTF

  • JV

    I think they fired her because the producers — or just Andy, or whomever — wanted to demonstrate that actions (sometimes) have consequences. If cast members can just do whatever with impunity, then there’s no point in watching. But fatal reality TV sins, like making up rape rumors or having no storyline, are met with the guillotine.

    She’ll be back in some capacity, because she will be humiliated and it will be a mess and it’ll make for “good reality TV.”

  • GuestSTAR

    1.9 milli is a lot for Atlanta, must be in a super affluent, super exclusive location. Plop that same house in Palo Alto, Los Gatos, San Jose (Silicon Valley) or even Oakland and it would be selling for 5 or 6 million easily and would be snapped up quickly by a tech executive, professor……. It’s a buyer’s market, a housing shortage, folks that can, are paying over the asking price and sellers are getting what they are asking for.

    Great comment!

  • ThottyPippen

    People are hard on her just like they’re hard on Kenya, NeNe (at one time) etc.

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    She was living beyond her means when she got it…..stay humble….

  • http://ivyleaguelove.tumblr.com/ Applebootay

    Yup!

  • NeverSurprised

    Indeed it is. Watch what you put out there, because all of it, the good and the bad, will eventually find its way back to you.

  • L. Thompson

    It clearly says, she NEVER moved in. So clearly those are not her furnishings.

  • Michelle Hicks

    Every time you look up Phadrea is somewhere speaking on some panel for something and I am sure she is getting paid big. That lady never stops she is always on some type of platform and they get paid for that stuff. Even loosing the RHOA she wouldn’t be this hard up for money this soon..Don’t count her out…Phadrea has been around a long time, she knows how to make that paper.

  • NeverSurprised

    ???

  • Quitedeliteful

    It’s a beautiful home. Phaedra may be a lot of things but she doesn’t seem stupid with money. She’ll be alright…

  • Lene

    Time will tell but so far she hitting bumps on the way.

  • Nessa

    Did they really fire her or is this speculation?

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • Robert Green

    Well, you can’t have her in the same vicinity has moma joyce, and there was so much editing in the reunion series, that I believe there was more to it. Phaedra, didn’t look shocked when Porsha outed her.

  • Robert Green

    that’s not her style

  • Peter Piper ATL

    Well if she plans on waiting until she ” lands another well paying reality TV show gig”, then honey, I think she needs to think about a long-term Extended Stay suite as opposed to maintaining a fancy residence. Nobody wants to see that chile on TV anymore.

    I feel sorry for those poor, funny looking kids of hers. They have a mommy who is irresponsible and sociopathic, and a stunt queen daddy who is waiting until they turn 18 so that he can steal their identities and bust some checks in their names too!

  • SDot

    that;s bad karma.. DONT DO IT

  • wiseone

    I agree. Before dungeon gate came out it was super messy.

  • wiseone

    Kandi and her mama were coming for Phaedra before dungeon gate

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    In my mind I was thinking where I’m currently residing which is phoenix. The housing market is great here you can get a 3000 square foot home for about 250,000. Or maybe Georgia where it’s green!

  • AG

    Nope. Just a home owner.

  • Allihave2say

    She can rent it to R Kelly

  • Allihave2say

    I just wrote this!!!!

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    We petty, Lol!???

  • Allihave2say

    I likes it!

  • Crazy tee

    You see why NeNe is back…stop living beyond your means..:.a half a million dollar house won’t work?…If your net worth is 5 million you shouldn’t live in a 2 million dollar home…your asking for a disaster

  • sara danca

    obviously it wasn’t smart to purchase something she can not afford to pay for. Her pockets are not that deep to purchase a home to rent out which were not her intent.
    Her first home is also on the market for 1.5 mil. She is not the only one in Atl who is faking their wealth, oh so living above their means to outdo the “Jones”….black peeps should get some land and just live somewhere. Kudos to Kandi who does have money and live within her means not in Buckhead, but in “old black money” Cascade.

  • sara danca

    Rent the house and say it’s hers……lol. Pay mortgage on someone else’s house. lol.
