“God sometimes takes us into troubled waters not to drown us but to cleanse us. #TBT #Maui #sunset 🌦” Parks captioned the throwback pic from her Hawaiian vacation that she posted on Sept. 5.

The caption may have been relatively simple, but the star’s sun-kissed look in the colorful and printed one-piece that showed off her legs led fans to share tons of compliments.

“Throw me a lifejacket I’m drowning from all this beauty😉⛵🛥️”

“You Look Amazing 🙌🏽🙌🏽”

“Can we just get the skincare regimen 😫😫😫 you’re flawless 💜💜💜”

“You’re so pretty Pooh 😍😍😍😍😍 #glowing #authenticbeauty”

“NATURALLY brown chocolate SKIN👍!!SHOW IT OFF SIS😍..”

“You know u bad. Gurl just made my night. Love u”

The Atlanta-based attorney frequently gets tons of love on her Instagram account for various reasons.

When the ex-reality star posed in a mesh swimsuit cover-up dress, fans sang her praises.

“Yaaaasssss ma’am!!! Okay @phaedraparks!!! You cute cute 👑💖💖💋”

“Don’t hurt anybody 🔥💥🔥”

“Ms. Parks is looking absolutely stunning as usual. Ms. Parks, you just look so wholesome, so extremely sexy but classy! Desirable! A true Southern Belle! 😍😍😍🔥🔥🔥”

She’s also gotten applauded for her parenting of young sons Dylan and Ayden, whom she has been raising solo as their father, Apollo Nida, was imprisoned. After five years, Nida has since been released.

“I don’t admire many but I admire you. You are a wonderful person hardworking and loyal. Your mom skills are phenomenal!” a fan said of Parks.

“They are so handsome @phaedraparks. Good job on raising two wonderful young men! Your parenting skills does not go unnoticed by your fans. Be blessed and continue pushing forward!”

In the two years since Parks got the boot from “RHOA,” her supporters have remained as interested as ever in her life. Recently, a fan tweeted a poll asking “RHOA” viewers to decide who had the best comebacks and shade. As Parks’ name cropped up, fans soon began tagging the long-running show’s producer Andy Cohen in hopes that he would welcome her back to the show.

Parks herself has previously not ruled out returning to the series but has simultaneously maintained she’s moved past the gig.

“I never say never to any opportunities, but I had a good run and you know, I’m very happy right now,” she told the Daily Mail earlier this summer.
