Phaedra Parks is known as the “queen” of throwing shade and she did not disappoint this weekend at BravoCon 2023.

The attorney and new Married to Medicine cast member hit the red carpet in Las Vegas for the 3-day event, where fans and Bravolebrities gather for live panels, exhibits, and photo ops.

Joined by fellow Married2Med castmate, Dr. Alicia Egolum, Parks talked to  Access Hollywood about the differences between her past and present reality shows.

“It’s been a great experience,” she said about Married to Medicine. “These are obviously doctors, so they’re very smart, very intelligent.”

After seemingly knocking the intelligence of the RHOA cast, she described the ladies on Married2Med as “authentic.”

“They’re full of drama,” Parks said about her new castmates. “But it’s a different kind of drama. Housewives’ drama can be dangerous. This isn’t dangerous drama, it’s very intellectual drama. It’s relationship drama. Lots of friendships gone awry, so it’s really authentic and I like it.”

Parks was a peach holder on RHOA and appeared on the series from 2010 until 2017, when TMZ and other outlets reported she was ousted for spreading rumors.

She now joins season 10 of Bravo’s Married to Medicine alongside returning cast members Dr. Jackie Walters, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Toya Bush Harris, and Quad Webb.

Lateasha Lunceford, new wife of Dr. Gregory Lunceford, joins the series this season. Also new to the show is Dr. Alicia Egolum, a dentist and friend of Dr. Heavenly Kimes.

So what’s Parks’ connection to medicine? She launched a wellness center and describes herself as a “holistic healer.”

The new season of Married to Medicine premieres tonight at 9:15 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo, and will resume its regular timeslot at 9 p.m. ET/PT the following week. Each episode streams the next day on Peacock.
