Phaedra Creonta Parks is an American television personality, attorney, businesswoman, author, actress, and mortician.

She is best known for appearing on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta from 2010 until 2017. Prior to this, she was an established attorney, fronting her own legal firm, The Parks Group. In 2022, she starred on the second season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip on Peacock, and in 2023, joined the cast for the current tenth season of Married to Medicine.


Parks first appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2010. She was already an established attorney, with her own legal practice, The Parks Group. Throughout her career, she had represented multiple public figures such as Bobby Brown. In 2006, she was awarded 'Attorney of the Year' and has served on Georgia's Law School Alumni Council, the Grammy Recording Board, UGA Law School Board, and G-Capp. She has served as a legal analyst on shows like Fox News and NBC regarding the Michael Jackson trial. Parks has also acted as a television producer for BET's The Tiny and Toya Show.

Her appearance on The Real Housewives of Atlanta helped her become nominated as one of Atlanta's top 100 Black women of influence, as her season 3 debut kick-started high publicity and positive attention for Parks. Her seven season stint on the show saw Parks involved in multiple main storylines including the dissolution of her marriage to Apollo Nida and pregnancies resulting in sons Ayden and Dylan. In a 2011 episode of RHOA, Parks announced her plan to become a mortician. In 2017, Parks was ultimately fired ahead of the show's tenth season following a damaging rumour she circulated about fellow RHOA cast member Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker concerning Porsha Williams and Shamea Morton. Following her departure from RHOA, Bravo tentatively announced a new unscripted series focussed on Parks alone titled, Rich People's Problems. The show was never released.

In 2013, Parks released her first book, Secrets of the Southern Belle: How to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun and Never Have an Off Moment. In 2020, Parks and then-boyfriend, Medina Islam, appeared on the season two premiere of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition She made her acting debut in Covenant, an eight-episode anthology series on Allblk, in October 2021. She played Bernice Whitfield, the family matriarch. In 2021, it was announced that Parks would be appearing on the second season of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip (subtitled Ex-Wives Club), the franchise's 'mash-up' series produced by Peacock featuring multiple well-known former housewives from the franchise.

In 2022, alongside Parks' RHUGT main cast appearance, she additionally starred in a recurring guest role in The Real Housewives of Dubai's first season, as a friend of housewife Caroline Brooks.  Shereé Whitfield stated that Parks filmed for Season 14 of RHOA at her fashion show, however scenes featuring Parks were never aired. Rumours regarding Parks' return to RHOA in a full-time capacity have begun to swirl following executive producer Andy Cohen stating he would love to have her back, following her 2017 firing. Reportedly, her appearances on RHUGT, RHOA and RHODXB are to test whether her Bravo comeback appeals to audiences. Kandi Burruss has stated she would leave RHOA if Parks returns.  In January 2023, it was announced that Parks would return for the fifth season (and second Ex-Wives Club season) of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, taking place in Marrakesh, Morocco and set to premiere in 2024. Parks had signed onto the tenth season of Married to Medicine, replacing Dr. Contessa Metcalfe and Anila Sajja.

In September 2023, it was announced that Parks would be a contestant on Peacock's second season of The Traitors. The season was released in January 2024. Parks is one of the three Traitors.
