Playing 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Star Phaedra Parks Allegedly Targeted by Man Claiming to Have Bomb

A man claiming to have a bomb was arrested on Thursday, and his target was allegedly Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks.

A suspect, Terrence Cook, was detained after entering a Georgia office building and saying he "was tired of being treated wrongly and that he had a bomb," the Atlanta Police Department tells ET. According to police, Cook was carrying a FedEx envelope and a book and was purportedly looking for Parks, who works as a lawyer.

"The suspect was attempting to go to the second floor, which is The Parks Group law firm, but was unable to get to that floor," Atlanta PD told ET in a statement, confirming S.W.A.T. units and Airport K-9 also responded to the scene. "Police officers detained the suspect on the fifth floor. Homeland Security responded to the scene and advised they would be charging the suspect."

Police say no bomb was ever found. Cook has been charged with making terroristic threats and creating a false public alarm.

It's unclear whether Parks was even in Atlanta at the time, as she has been sharing social media posts from the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, as recently as Wednesday.

In other Real Housewives news, Orange County star Tamra Judge recently opened up about the show's "epic" fight and told ET's Brice Sander that she's "surprised somebody wasn't arrested." Check it out in the video below.
