Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Phaedra Parks, is set to divorce her husband Apollo Nida. He has been in prison for the last few months for federal fraud charges and will continue to be in prison until his eight year sentence is carried out. Parks told Ellen Degeneres in an interview that even though Nida was out on parole when she met him she thought he was a changed man and that is why she married him. She had no idea that any of this was going on in the background until one day she received a phone call from Nida stating that he had been arrested.
Parks is a lawyer herself so when she heard this she scoured for the best attorneys and best investigators that she could find as Nida stated that the charges were false. Eventually he was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for his crimes. Parks is now left to raise Dylan and Ayden, their two very young boys, by herself. She says that it is extremely difficult and her heart breaks for her boys because now they have to grow up without a father around. She told Ellen that she makes sure that she does not speak poorly of the boys’ father out in public so that she doesn’t diminish his character. One day the boys will be old enough to understand what has happened and she doesn’t want them to think badly of their father.
Some may question how Parks didn’t even know any of this was happening right around her but she has been very busy. She just finished up college and received her fifth degree. She also has been busy raising the boys as both are toddlers. Unfortunately, she says, when someone is that busy small details and events slip through the cracks and go unnoticed.
Not only has Parks been dealing with having to raise her son’s alone and keeping her life together, but now she is dealing with rumors of an affair as well. Someone started a rumor that she had been cheating on Nida with a man named Chocolate from Africa. She dismissed these allegations and stated that she didn’t even know a man named Chocolate.
