On Real Housewives of Atlanta this week, Phaedra Parks joined her friends and co-stars for Demetria McKinney‘s video release party. Phaedra said she needed a girls night out away from her prison bound huzzzband, Apollo Nida, and all that’s going on at home. Big. Mistake. Because where there’s a RHOA camera, there’s Apollo boohooing about how everyone has wronged him. Ugh. How soon until this con artist is off my TV?!?
Phaedra shared her thoughts on the party with Bravo in her blog.
When asked her first impressions of Demetria and Claudia Jordan, Phaedra said, “When I attended Demetria’s event, my focus was an evening of escape from my current reality. I didn’t attend with the idea of engaging in any captivating conversations. I had very limited interaction with Demetria and Claudia, so my frist impression was merely that both women were attempting to embark on new career and relationship frontiers.”
Andy surmised that it must be hard for Phaedra to watch this season of RHOA considering all she has gone through – and is still going through – with Apollo. “Definitely. Any time you are dealing with something very personal in the media and on TV it’s very difficult,” said Phaedra. “It’s quite uncomfortable.”
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of Atlanta was a modern day fairytale! Maidens dueled over the elusive Roger Bobb, prince of production-ville, NeNe Leakes was cursed by an evil gay and and was doomed to an episode of bad wigs, and Phaedra Parks turned to stone. Ahhh… love!
Before any of this happens we’re confronted with Mama Joyce. First thing, right out of the gate, like bad news before coffee in the morning that’s too early. Kandi Burruss‘ family is having a BBQ, she arrives with Todd, and she’s not speaking to Joyce because her boyfriend destroyed the house Kandi gave her, which Kandi, for some reason, didn’t know until after she bought MJ a new house. Things that make you go hmm…
There’s been a lot of conflicting reports about the status of Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida‘s marriage. Phaedra has not been to visit Apollo since he was incarcerated, but apparently the two are talking and she plans to arrange a visit soon!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star was recently spotted out and about, still wearing her wedding ring despite purportedly filing for divorce (no papers have been filed yet), Phaedra kept it casual when asked about a Christmas visit to the penitentiary, “I would love to,” she said neutrally.
Phaedra said the same thing when asked about bringing her sons to see Apollo.
NeNe shared that the defrauding former Real Housewives Of New Jersey star brought her 4 daughters to a performance of the show and they had a great time. “My girl came to Cinderella last nite with her daughters to support me! I love seeing her. She looks so good & she’s a super strong woman,” NeNe gushed on Instagram.
Apparently in the months since Teresa was sentenced she’s become good friends with the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star, who has been a staunch supporter of Teresa for years. <side eye>
Apollo Nida is a man scorned – which is amusing considering he did the scorning – and promises he will fight Phaedra Parks for money when she files for divorce!
Issuing what sounds like a threat or at the very least a warning, Apollo swears he will not allow Phaedra to leave him with nothing when their marriage legally ends. “I will not walk away empty-handed, considering all I’ve put into the marriage over the five years,” Apollo seethes.
All Apollo put in to the marriage? Let’s recap: the lies, the cheating, the breaking the law, the destroyingtheir family, embarrassing his wife and children, the lies about Kenya, and the fact that Phaedra could also be on the hook for his millions in restitution if they stay married? Oh yeah, he really put a lot into this marriage!
Kandi Burruss is not about the drama – don’t start none .. won’t be done – so she thought it necessary to bring the ladies of Real Housewives of Atlanta together to iron out their differences. Because these type of Real Housewives gatherings rarely have drama. LOL! Nice try, Kandi, but I’ve got your number.
There was nothing but drama – save for a few stale crackers – and not much was accomplished between Phaedra Parks and Kenya Moore.
Phaedra addressed the dinner cracker chat in her blog. “I was fine sitting down with all of the ladies,” she said. “While it is not something I would have initiated, I respect anything that is done in the interest of peace and harmony, which is why I attended.” Yeah, um, not to mention <eye roll> that contract with Bravo.
This weekend we received some information from a very credible source about the status of Phaedra Parks‘ marriage to Apollo Nida. Phaedra told our source that she has absolutely no plans to visit Apollo while he is incarcerated at FMC Lexington Prison in Kentucky.
