As always with Real Housewives Of Atlanta, the details are eternally confusing. Last year Phaedra’s dissolution of marriage was signed off by a judge, but despite the fact that he’s in prison and engaged to another woman, Apollo contested the divorce by saying he never saw nor signed papers, and that his name was intentionally spelled incorrectly. It’s listed as “Apollo Nita” on the legal documents.
Well the new judge agreed with Apollo!

The judge was reportedly “troubled” by the misspelled name, but more so confused as to why Apollo believed he would be eligible to attend future divorce hearings from prison – apparently that’s not an option. TMZ says Apollo claims he was not notified of a final hearing or formally served letting him know he was officially divorced. Phaedra has denied this.

In response to the fact that she’s still legally yoked to Apollo, Phaedra’s rep, Steve Honig, issued the following statement: “With regard to the judge reversing Phaedra Parks’ divorce judgement at the request of Apollo Nida, attributed to me: ‘It’s very confusing why a man who is engaged and enjoys frequent visits with his fiancée would work so aggressively to avoid ending his marriage. Regardless, Phaedra is reviewing her options with her attorney to determine the most efficient path toward ending this marriage so she can move forward and focus on raising strong, healthy and happy children.'”
I guess if at first you don’t succeed, file, file again!
