Hot on the heels of Phaedra Parks announcing that she’s divorcing herself from providing Apollo Nida with spousal immunity, a judge is ordering Phaedra to discuss her husband’s crimes in an upcoming deposition!
Phaedra has been embroiled in a lawsuit against a woman named Angela Stanton who self-published a book titled Lies Of A Real Housewife which alleged that Phaedra was the ring-leader in the original car racket scheme that got Apollo (and Angela) sent to federal prison. This is the first time Apollo went to prison, mind you.
A portion of Angela’s book was published in Vibe Magazine, despite the magazine issuing a disclaimer that there were no facts to back it up. Phaedra sued Vibe, Angela’s publishing company, and Angela, settling out of court with Vibe and dropping the suit against the publishing company – but Phaedra’s suit against Angela rages on.
Now the Real Housewives Of Atlanta is required to give additional deposition because according to Angela’s attorneys Phaedra doesn’t want to reveal what she may or may not have known about Apollo’s illegal activities!
Phaedra Parks has shied away from all press while her husband Apollo Nida‘s legal situation exploded, culminating with his going to prison last month. But Phaedra is finally breaking her silence in an exclusive sit-down with talkshow host Ellen DeGeneres!
Phaedra’s rep shared with us that the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star will be discussing all things Apollo and be “very candid” about her life, what happened in her marriage, and her plans for the future in an upcoming episode to air on October 15th.
A source reveals that Phaedra is not planning to wait ‘Ride or Die’ style (or appear on new reality show Prison Wives) for Apollo and that she is representing herself in filing for divorce! “Phaedra’s starting the divorce process all on her own,”a source close to the reality star reveals. “She has drawn up papers herself.”
Of course we all know that Phaedra Parks‘ marriage to Apollo Nida has unraveled in the wake of his legal problems. While we all assumed it was his going to prison that caused the distress, Kandi reveals that there were many, many other things we don’t know! And guess who’s right smack dab in the middle of it: Kenya Moore!
Stating that she and Phaedra are “cool” Kandi defends her friend and has her back. And she reveals that the nonsense between Kenya and Apollo is definitely not resolved, but Kandi won’t give too many details!
Well today, Apollo confirms that he is officially a prisoner! Interestingly Apollo was even able to post a video of himself from inside the prison. My, my… this place is pretty lax! Maybe he could even continue filming for Real Housewives Of Atlanta from behind bars.
There is a crazy story on TMZ this afternoon that says that The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sApollo Nidawent AWOL and didn’t turn himself in this afternoon as planned. The story goes on to say that he forced himself into Phaedra Parks’ home and got into a spat with her over money and her refusal to bring the boys to visit him in prison. The story is reportedly false.
Police were called to Phaedra’s home this afternoon but were there for just a few minutes since it was just her faulty alarm system, not an altercation with Apollo. He has reported to prison as planned and has started his eight year sentence without incident, according to Tamara Tattles’ sources who witnessed him pulling into the gates at the prison in Lexington.
