Phaedra Parks: “I Will Always Love Apollo”

Phaedra Parks Access Hollywood Live

Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Phaedra Parks stopped by Access Hollywood Live yesterday to bat her eyelashes, smirk, and dodge hard questions like only she could do.

Billy Bush and Kit Hoover asked Phaedra about the Mr. Chocolate rumor, the current status of her marriage to Apollo Nida, and that one time when Porsha Williams attacked Kenya Moore at RHOA reunion camp. Spoiler Alert: she is Team Porsha. HAHAHA. Of course she is. 

Phaedra claimed the only chocolate she knows comes in the form of a candy bar, adding, “Yum, Yum, Yum.” Though she definitely did not hold back where Kenya is concerned.


On the RHOA trailer, Kenya insinuated that Phaedra cheated on Apollo with a guy named Mr. Chocolate. “It was hurtful,” she said. “It was very upsetting to me because when she made that accusation, my husband hadn’t even been in prison for 36 hours. It came at a time where I was very emotional.”

Phaedra continued, “It’s very hard to be in the public eye, under such public scrutiny, have the type of trauma that I’m having in my personal life, and have it aired for everyone make their own crazy suggestions. It was very troubling. For one moment, I broke my Southern belle code and whipped my purse around. If you’re already at your breaking point because you really have so much on your plate and someone throws out such a ridiculous accusation, such as me cheating…”

“I believe in the sanctity of marriage. I have been a very faithful wife. I think I’ve been an excellent wife. I have two small children, and I’m raising my sons to respect women. It’s ridiculous to think I would ever do anything inappropriate, and there has never been any documentation of any such thing.”

When asked about trouble within her marriage, Phaedra said, “Although I live my life in public, I don’t obviously live everything in the public. This is not due to just him being incarcerated, it’s a culmination of things. We are better and more healthier individuals apart.”

Phaedra refused to answer whether she will, in fact, file for divorce. Nor did she answer if Apollo “wronged” her. Um, let me count the ways… right?! But she said she won’t badmouth him because she wants her boys, in the future, to look back and think she handled the situation with class and dignity.

“Marriage is between two people, and those two people would be Apollo and I. I really don’t care to discuss all the specifics. I’ve made that decision. There’s no benefit in mudslinging because we have two very young children. I would never diminish my husband at any point whether we are married, divorced, estranged, or whatever. He will always be family. I will always love him. And we will always have two wonderful children together.”

When asked about Porsha and Kenya‘s fight, Phaedra said, “I love Porsha. Porsha and I are very very close friends. Porsha had been bullied and had really been provoked. Everyone has the point where they can break and make decisions that they’re not proud of. At the end of the day, I believe she was provoked and there was a lot of bullying going on. I regret that it transpired like that but <sultry stage whisper> I do understand.”

I’m not a Phaedra fan. I think she’s shady. Nothing about her seems genuine to me. I feel sorry for her two boys, Ayden and Dylan, but that’s where my sympathy ends.
