Phaedra Parks: “The Nonstop Bickering Can Be Exhausting”

In a recent interview with Bravo, Phaedra Parks dishes on this week's episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Phaedra Parks dishes on her Flint benefit and the ladies' disagreements. Check it out!

Bravotv.com: How did you come up with the idea to do your camp for the children of Flint?

Phaedra Parks: Since learning about the Flint water crisis, I have visited the city numerous times to advocate for them regarding the water issue. During one of my visits to Flint I had the opportunity to visit several schools and interact with the students. After speaking and marching with numerous parents and listening to their concerns for their children’s health and welfare, I wanted to do something special for the children affected the most by the water crisis. After speaking about my desires, YMCA Camp Copneconic and I began a collaborative effort to make my dream a reality, Camp Impact.

Bravotv.com: Were you at all nervous about working with Kenya on the camp event?

PP: Given our history, there was some initial trepidation. However, since Michigan is Kenya’s home state, I knew she would want to help Flint children. I was focused more on making a beneficial impact on the community and less on the history of our relationship.

Bravotv.com: What was going through your mind during Kenya and Sheree's argument?

PP: In the words of the late Rodney King, “Can't we all just get along?” I know disagreements are inevitable, but the nonstop bickering can be exhausting. I am just glad they agreed to coexist for the benefit of the Flint children.
