It seems like things are still tense between Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks and her estranged husband Apollo Nida. In case you forgot, Miz Parks’ husband is currently serving an eight year sentence in prison for money laundering and bank fraud. Yikes!
And it seems this time in jail has been tough on the reality TV star as it’s certainly affected his relationship with his kiddos. Though, it probably doesn’t help that the Bravolebrity doesn’t want to bring her children to see their poppa in prison.
In a recent interview, Apollo shared:
“I tried to, kind of, recognized where she was coming from — but I never agreed on the fact that I didn’t want to see my children. I never agreed to that…I still want to see them, regardless of where I’m at.
But the fact is I am in a different facility, I’m at a camp now. There has been discussion about her allowing me to see the children and her bringing the children to see me.”
Well that’s good to hear! The controversial celeb also noted that his new facility didn’t give off a prison vibe which should make his estranged wife and her legal team happy. Phew!
Apollo also revealed that, though he understands his family’s busy schedule, he wishes he could call home more than once or twice a month. Aww!
However, the question that everyone wanted to know is whether or not the RHOA couple’s marriage will survive while Apollo’s on the inside. On the twosome’s divorce rumors, the convict explained:
“Umm, I really don’t know. We’re still married on paper. We haven’t had an opportunity to sit down and talk. I don’t know really what’s going on, there’s been a lot of speculation… [Phaedra] has spoken to my legal team about divorce. It’s up in the air. I need closure in my life right now. I have a lot of ill feelings. I’m very frustrated and angry. So, I don’t want to say the wrong thing prematurely — but at the end of the day, I think it’s time for her and I to sit down and just figure out if we’re going to move forward.”
Whoa! Talk about a truth bomb.
We knew that Phaedra wanted the divorce, but hearing it from Apollo made it all very real!
Here’s hoping the former flames can settle their issues peacefully for the sake of their children. Fingers crossed!
