Get ready for another dramatic vacation by Bravo!

It appears the cast of Real Housewives of Atlanta is coming together to celebrate Phaedra Parks' birthday in a faraway destination.

In a variety of Instagram posts and tweets, fans of the popular series have learned Cynthia Bailey, Kenya Moore, Claudia Jordan and Kandi Burruss are vacationing in an unknown location near the Phillippinesin honor of Parks' special day. Even Porsha Williams and Demetria McKinney who were announced as "Friends of the Housewives" made the trip.

"#AllAboard! Lol! Cheers to Laughs and growth! #100 #RHOA season 7," McKinney wrote on Instagram as the group posed for a fierce picture.

The vacation comes at a much-needed time for Parks who recently decided to end her marriage to Apollo Nida


In September, her husband checked himself into prison to begin an eight-year sentence that was issued in July following his guilty plea to bank fraud back in May. They share two kids together.

Fans also may be wondering where the one and only NeNe Leakes is in the photos. Turns out she skipped the trip in order to focus on her Broadway work in Cinderella.

"Memorizing my Cinderella script is a work in progress," she tweeted this week. "But a BIG thanks 2 my study partners @Tequillakiki & @ahmed_lucan 4 helpin me"

E! News also can confirm Leakes had to miss the trip partly because of her recurring health problem involving blood clots that form around her lungs.


The new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta is right around the corner.

In a trailer released first to E! News, fans may have noticed many relationships are still damaged after an explosive season.

Leakes and Bailey remain at odds while Parks is faced with wild allegations from Moore. Burruss and her husband are also disagreeing over Mama Joyce

Watch all the drama unfold when Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres Sunday, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. on Bravo.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family)
