This upcoming season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta is going to be pretty darn interesting.
Phaedra Parks, one of the show’s longtime cast members, stopped by Ellen to discuss her marriage to Apollo Nida and his recent legal troubles. This move comes as a surprise, especially since Phaedra has kept mum about her husband’s incarceration. After pleading guilty to fraud and sentenced to eight years in prison, Apolla began serving his sentence three months ago.
According to Phaedra, she knew nothing about Apollo’s activities.
“I mean, I work. I just got my fifth college degree. And so I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’ So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do anything I could, because I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him to have the best. So we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”
I’m not completely sold on Phaedra’s story, there have been a number of reports that she was actually involved in some capacity. She also addressed rumors that she was having an affair with an African man who goes by the name Chocolate.
