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!
When asked what’s going on in her love life, Kenya “confesses” that Matt is 16 years younger than her. She says he’s “6’7″, chocolate, and full of muscles.” Adding, “He’s about 16 years younger than me. So there is quite an age difference, but he’s wonderful. He’s kind, he’s sweet, he’s intelligent. And he loves me.”
Phaedra shared that Mr. President, who is now 3 years old, had some issues last Halloween and decided that this year he wanted a totally unique costume so nobody else can copy it! “Last year Mr. President, my baby, had a Halloween meltdown so this year he said he’s going as a plant. He said ‘no one will have my costume if I’m just a plant’.”
On helping out with the renovation of her Atlanta home: “I found this shell of a house. Dilapidated, it was about to fall over, but the bones were good and it was a modern home, which is less than 1% in Atlanta, so I bought it right away. I began this extensive renovation. I mean, I had no plumbing, no lighting, nothing in there. So I basically built it from the ground up. I even did things with my own hands, like my fireplaces. There’s a lot of love that went into the home and a lot of work.”
Will we see the demise of her marriage to Peter play out on this season of RHOA? “Yes, you will see it play out. Peter and I have always been very transparent in our relationship and it’s worked for us and against us at the same time. But, just being on the show, I think it’s important for us to keep it real, like you guys do [laughs]. So, yes you will see it play out and um, it’s kind of hard because we got married on the show. We’re the only couple that actually got married on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and to have to go to through, you know, a divorce on the show, it’s not easy, but I think the only thing more tragic than divorce is being in something that’s not working anymore.”
The countdown is on! Just 13 more days until the season 9 premiere of The Real Housewives of Atlanta! Today Porsha Williams was a guest co-host on talk show The Real and dished on the drama of the upcoming season. She also shared a little of what we can expect from her this time around.
She dished with the ladies that we’ll be seeing a new grown-up version of Porsha in the new episodes! “This season on Housewives, you will really get to know me. I’m kind of evolving and I think this season I’m more comfortable in my skin than ever before. I’m taking counseling, which is something I am a big fan of.”
You would think after being such close friends with Peter Thomas, they’d know what happens when you don’t pay your bills. But before doors are even open on the Real Housewives Of Atlanta couple’s restaurant they’ve been hit with a $22,000 lien from both a carpenter and an air conditioner contractor.
