EXCLUSIVE: Phaedra Parks Defends Her Comments About Kandi Burruss' Sexuality at 'RHOA' Reunion -- Watch!

It’s judgment day for Phaedra Parks on The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, part three.
ET has your first look at the explosive installment, which finds host Andy Cohen asking Phaedra point-blank about her responsibility in starting the rumor that Kandi Burruss is a lesbian.
“The question at the dinner was, did someone call Kandi a lesbian?” Phaedra says. “In order for her to be a lesbian, that would mean she is only sleeping with women, correct? I never said she was a lesbian.”
“You said she was sleeping with a woman,” Andy shoots back.
“That doesn’t mean you’re a lesbian!” Phaedra responds.
So, Phaedra’s defense seems to be semantics. While she never used the word “lesbian,” Phaedra did imply that Kandi and Shamea Morton were more than friends by using a sexuality suggestive hand gesture while talking with co-stars Sheree Whitfield and Porsha Williams.
The moment, which Kandi previously told that ET Phaedra didn’t realize was recorded, kicked off the main drama of season nine.
“Did you not think, hmm, could this be what I said about Kandi and Shamea?” Andy asks.
“No, I didn’t,” Phaedra answers. “Because, when the conversation was had about Kandi and Shamea, and I said that, I wasn’t even going at Kandi at all. I was upset about what Shamea had said. Kandi just happened to be collateral damage.”
“So, you just threw Kandi under the bus?” Shamea asks. “And Todd?”
“I didn’t say they had slept together for years,” Phaedra adds. “I said they were…” before making that same sexually suggestive gesture with her fingers once more.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo. Get Kandi’s take on all the drama in the video below.
