I cannot help laughing at this whole situation. I can’t tell if this is a legit relationship or just a wild publicity stunt, but this woman actually posted a photo of her “ring” on Instagram to make their engagement social media official. God, I would love to see what Phaedra texted her bestie Porsha Williams about this whole mess. I’m sure she had some choice words for both of these people.
Last month after Phaedra announced that she had finalized her divorce from Apollo, there were rumors flying, alleging that she had never even filed for divorce, let alone “settled” it. And now TMZ reports that Apollo has filed papers to officially end the marriage.
To put it mildly, Phaedra Parks and Porsha Williams got off to a rocky start when they first met, but now these two are the epitome of #BestFriendGoals on Real Housewives of Atlanta. They even refer to themselves as “frick and frack.” With that said, the best friendship does not mean that they automatically agree with each other’s decisions. Case in point: Phaedra is not exactly on board with Porsha’s proposed plan of becoming a single mother.
I figured that since Phaedra is now a single mother herself- since Apollo Nida is locked up in prison- that she would have more empathy for Porsha’s desire to be a mother. But then again, she obviously knows how difficult it is, so I can see why she would want to look out for her bestie. Nevertheless, Porsha does seem genuinely interested in becoming a mother- with an emphasis on that happening sooner rather than later.
I’m still a little bit confused about how the friendship between Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks went south, but I’m just gonna blame Apollo Nida. That’s an easy thing to do – no one would ever go against someone hating on Apollo.
While Apollo has been ensconced in Fort Dix Federal Correctional Facility to serve an eight-year fraud sentence, he managed to entice another woman to marry him. Sources close to production say we’ll get to hear all about it on Real Housewives Of Atlanta later on this season.
Now that Phaedra Parks is finally divorced from the currently incarcerated Apollo Nida, the fans want to know if she’s dating anyone special. Everyone who watches Real Housewives of Atlanta knows that these two were not exactly in a good place before Apollo went to prison and the fact that he will be locked up for years is definitely going to help matters, so we all saw this one coming. As far as I can tell, Phaedra doesn’t have a boyfriend, but she has revealed what she’s looking for in a new man.
Phaedra has been very adamant about waiting until she’s officially (legally) single before dating again which is admirable. Not only that, but her life is so public since she’s a reality star so I don’t blame her to taking her time before she is ready to bring someone new into the picture. Plus, Phaedra has two young sons who I’m sure play a very important factor in her dating decisions.
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star filed for divorce in 2014 when Apollo began serving an eight-year prison sentence for about three zillion counts of fraud. Since then, Phaedra has been focusing on her children and trying to disentangle herself from her marriage.
Now that she’s finally a single lady again, Phaedra is not entertaining the idea of reconciling with Apollo once he’s released, even if he IS a changed man!
The leaves may be falling, but Shady Sunday is coming back again this Fall, with new seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Married To Medicine debuting Sunday, November 6! Bravo announced the premiere date this week, along with confirmation on who’s coming back – and what they will be sharing with us in the months to come.
Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 will see a return of the same cast we know and love, with one notable upgrade: Sheree Whitfield is back as a full time housewife, ya’ll! Who gon’ check her BOO? Two snaps in a circle for that. Snap, and a snap. It’s Sheree’s first time holding a peach since season 4. Though hinted at heavily during the off season, NeNe Leakes is not currently on the Housewife roster (nor is Kim Zolciak) but we all know she will likely poke her head in front of the camera for a scene or two.
