Phaedra Parks persistently claims that she and NeNe Leakes knew each other in high school and in a recent episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” she seemed to gloat a bit about it, considering it proof that the two knew each other since the co-stars took a road trip home to Athens, Georgia together.

NeNe Leakes maintains that she didn’t know Phaedra in high school and that they were not friends. “What is Phaedera’s problem?” NeNe asked. “Please show me where in this episode I acknowledge that I knew her back in my Athens days. I’m still waiting. You haven’t found it yet? It doesn’t exist!”

The subject has been a topic of debate since Phaedra joined the cast of the popular reality show with Leakes. NeNe recalls knowing of Phaedra but recalls that Phaedra was years behind her in school. “Did I know Phaedra when I was in high school, NO! I say clearly on this episode that I am the class of ’85. Chuck says he’s the class of ’88 and that innocent Phaedra is the class of ’89,” explains NeNe. “Think about high school! What senior hangs out with an 8th grader?”

Both women seem to be adamant about holding on to their own perspectives on the matter, but NeNe says, “I do not practice lying, and in this case there’s no need for it. What would I get out of saying I didn’t know her if I did know her?”

NeNe seems baffled as to why Phaedra keeps insisting on bringing the subject up of them knowing each other in high school, but she hopes Phaedra can be satisfied with their co-star status they now share.

“I’m not sure why it means so much to Phaedra for to say I knew her, but if it helps you to move on, Phaedra, I can truly say I know you now. I still haven’t met your mother or father and I have never been to your home ever, but I know exactly who you are,” NeNe concludes.
