Phaedra Parks can’t catch break on Real Housewives of Atlanta. She is always going through multiple issues at once, and she was once again front and center during the last episode with the news of a bomb threat at her office and a trip to prison to discuss her divorce with Apollo Nida. Damn, that’s a lot to deal with. She also went to the Democratic National Convention. This episode really did revolve around Phaedra, and she broke it all down in a new Q&A with Bravo.
After sharing that she was officially free, Apollo called the whole divorce story into question by filing a fresh set of divorce papers last week. But according to new reports, it’s just a waste everyone’s time since a judge already signed off on the whole thing.
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.
