The rumor-mill has been on full force lately as whispers have been heard across the internet that former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks has been secretly dating Criminal Minds actor Shemar Moore.
But Moore was quick to dispel those rumors in a recent interview with E! News’ Daily Pop, stating unequivocally that he is in fact, single.
“This thing, it’s crazy to me, I just woke up, like last week and everybody’s like, ‘Phaedra, Phaedra, Phaedra,'” he said. “And look, I met Phaedra doing a nighttime talk show with Andy Cohen and Andy Cohen does this thing late at night and he likes to get you to drink. And so you’re loose and you have fun on his show.”
“So I walked in and I saw Phaedra and I know who Phaedra- I’ve heard of Phaedra and she was looking like…and so she looked at me and I kinda had this sense of like, ‘Oh, she thinks I’m the guy from The Young and the Restless‘ or ‘She thinks I’m a certain Shemar.’ And I said, ‘Well, I’m gonna introduce you to a different kind of Shemar,'” he said. “So I just decided to have a good time and she was such a good sport and we played and we flirted and we got our little kissy face on. And then that went viral and that’s the first and the last time that I’ve ever seen or met Phaedra.”
So there you have it. Ladies, he’s still on the market! Peep the interview at the 2:38 mark.
