After RHOA's departure, Phaedra Parks' self-help book will address depression ...

Phaedra Parks experienced a bout of depressive anxiety after her departure from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and she wants to assist others who are going through similar difficulties.

In a new book that is part memoir and part meditation, Reality Star Carly Rae tells Page Six she intends to tell about her mental health journey and the affirmations she used throughout her recovery.

It was a very dark time when I left Housewives, according to the author. I went through depression and a lot of emotions because Housewives can cause you PTSD. I think anyone who has been on it for more than four to five years will suffer from some PTSD.

Parks, 48, left RHOA in 2017 after seven seasons on the Bravo reality show. Her departure, deeply regretted by her many followers, came during the closing of her friendship with Kandi Burruss, her longtime friend.

Page Six speaks with the single mother of two who shares sons Ayden, 12, and Dyan, 9 with her ex-husband Apollo Nida that she is grateful to have recovered from the agony with self-reflection and the support of her loved ones.

I wanted to write a book for women who can read it, because it really gave me a piece of my testimony of just being an overcomer, according to the author.

Parks is doing well today. She recently made her reality TV return on The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: Ex-Wives Club, a Peacock spinoff that included Tamra Judge, Taylor Armstrong, Jill Zarin, and other well-known Housewives from different franchises.

Honey, God gave me a double for my difficulties, according to Parks of her comeback. I look younger, I feel younger, and I have nothing.

Through her belief in a higher power, the multi-hyphenate who has maintained multiple careers as an attorney, mortician, producer, and actress was able to overcome previous disgrace, shame, and even suicidal fantasies.

When people go through difficult situations, they do not have a prayer life, or they do not understand the value of meditation, the ability of thinking positive, the ability of claiming and proclaiming success, and the healing power over their lives, she adds.

I discuss personal stories from my life. At the end, I offer a meditation that helped me through those moments. I want to be the bridge, I want to be the encouragement for anyone who doesn't have someone to talk to.

The Bravolebrity hopes to dispel prejudices about mental health failure.

I just want people to know that even through my book, there is nothing wrong with stating, I need help, or, Im feeling this way, according to the author. You should be able to be transparent to others who love you and get help.

Parks' two boys have been a constant source of joy.

My children are my greatest strengths, because in order to continue my legacy, I am instilling all of the lessons I have learned into them as parents, she says.

In a TikTok post accompanied by Caroline Jones So Many Skies, a tender love song featuring Matthew Ramsey that has gone viral this summer, Parks paid tribute to Ayden and Dylan.

With COVID, inflation, and violence, there is no better time to express love and just be appreciative. I want my children to know how much I love them and how much I appreciate them, further gushing, and how grateful I am to be their mother.

In 2013, Parks' final book, Secrets of the Southern Belle, was released in stores. How to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment

According to us, the writer is currently working on her next literary project. A release date and title have yet to be announced.
