Phaedra Parks Shocks Andy Cohen with This Bolo Revelation: "Are You Kidding Me?!"

Now we know why The Real Housewives of Atlanta performer looks so familiar.

By Laura Rosenfeld

Long before Bolo became a household name, there was another performer who left a lasting impression on the Atlanta Housewives. Phaedra Parks memorably surprised Kandi Burruss with a ReDICKulous present for her birthday in Season 4 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Given Phaedra's skill at finding performers, Andy Cohen naturally wanted to know what she thought of Bolo wowing the ladies during Cynthia Bailey's dungeon-themed bachelorette party in Season 13 when the RHOA alum appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on May 6. "I brought Bolo to the Housewives as well," Phaedra revealed during the WWHL After Show (clip above).

That very fun fact shocked Andy. "Are you kidding me?" he exclaimed as his jaw dropped.

"I'm not kidding you," Phaedra said in response. "I brought Bolo to the Housewives for the Tags event when I made Kandi a cake. Remember, I made her my old-fashioned pound cake. Yeah, so I brought him as well [laughs]."

Andy said that was "amazing" and that the WWHL team needed "to dig that up" so we could all be reminded of the footage.

Well, WWHL did just that, later sharing the throwback RHOA moment on Twitter. The clip actually appears to show a different moment than the one Phaedra was referencing, when Bolo, along with three other shirtless men, arrived at Kandi's Tags Boutique to give her, Phaedra, and Shereé Whitfield massages while feeding them strawberries.

Kandi and Phaedra would later experience a major falling out, culminating at the dramatic RHOA Season 9 reunion. Kandi has expressed her doubts about the two ever reconciling in the past, but Phaedra was more optimistic during her most recent appearance on WWHL. "You know what? We're both two very strong, powerful Black women. And as a mom — we're both moms — I teach my kids that they can resolve anything, and so I would never say never," Phaedra said. "Resolution is always possible in every scenario."
