Phaedra’s got her groove back. The former ‘RHOA’ star revealed that she is happy and dating again in a recent interview with Daily Mail TV.

The mother of two was previously linked to radio host Tone Kapone, but it appears she’s moved on to a better situation for her heart and future.

The 45-year-old is now dating Medina Islam, an actor on Tyler Perry’s “The Have And The Have Nots.” He is ten years her junior.

The mom of two gushed about her new boo saying, ‘I didn’t date for four years and so I put my foot into the man pond I guess about nine months to a year ago. I dated a guy and that didn’t quite work out and so I found another guy that’s more suitable for me and I’m quite excited and happy about him. He’s very smart, very intelligent. He’s kind, we are both socially active. He’s really sober and smart. He’s a great father. So I’m excited about it.’

While the new couple became public in recent photos, the Internet leaked that Phaedra’s boo used to date RHOA alum Claudia Jordan. Ironically, Claudia also used to date Phaedra’s ex, Tone Kapone.

Back when Phaedra and Kapone were dating, Claudia spilled tea on Kapone telling TheJasmineBrand audience:

‘Mannnnn but just days before nye he was telling my girl SHE’s his ‘wife’ and he loves her! Tired of biting my tongue. Matter of fact we all spoke on a 3 way and he was all in. Someone tell mr. Kapone they don’t pay the men on RHOA! Only for the reunion run Phaedra! He for everybody!’

Yikes. Hopefully the story with Medina won’t be nearly as messy.

Phaedra deserves some calm love after her ex husband and father of her kids, Apollo Nida, was locked up for bank fraud and identity theft.
