RHOA Alum Joins Marriage Boot Camp

People broke the news that Phaedra is part of the cast of the popular WEtv show Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. Joining the lawyer will be her boyfriend of two years, rapper/actor Medina Islam. 



As fans know, Phaedra was let go from RHOA between Seasons 9 and 10 after starting rumors about Kandi Burress and Todd Tucker. Rumors of her return have reached a fever pitch after yet another lackluster season of RHOA for Cynthia.

Love & Hip Hop New York’s Tahiry Jose joins the show with Vado ( of “Look Me in My Eyes” fame.) Rounding out the cast is Kurupt and Toni Calvert. 

Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition will be led by Dr. Ish Major and Divorce Court Judge Lynn Toler.
