Is Apollo Nida planning waaaay ahead for his wedding to Sherien Almufti, or is dude pretending he’s getting out of prison sometime soon? Because Sherien recently revealed that she’ll be making an appearance on this season’s Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta. Let’s just hope she has a very good storage bag for that wedding gown…
Of course, just when Phaedra is emotionally done with all things Apollo, she’s forced to confront him again in court with a re-divorce. “[The divorce] was finalized last year in July so of course that obviously made me assume I had regained my independence and a new start,” she admits. “So to be placed back into a position where I have to do it all over again … it’s disheartening, but it’s a process and I can’t obviously change it.”
So wait – Phaedra Parks isn’t divorced after all?! Not according to an Atlanta judge who decided to reverse her divorce from Apollo Nida based on technicalities.
As always with Real Housewives Of Atlanta, the details are eternally confusing. Last year Phaedra’sdissolution 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.
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!
James told People (because, of course) he visitedJoe on Friday, adding, “He is doing as well as can be expected. I would say that he is adjusting very well. I know that he misses Teresa and their four daughters immensely, but Joe will get through this, just like Teresa did.”
Cynthia Bailey was greeted by several surprise appearances on the season finale of Real Housewives Of Atlanta. She was busted not once, but two times! First by the FEDs who showed up on her doorstep inquiring about Apollo Nida‘s belongings, and then by her teenage daughter Noelle, who busted in on her giving Peter Thomas the happy ending special — IN THE KITCHEN (why the kitchen?!)
“I was surprised and mortified when Noelle and Leon walked in on me giving Peter a massage,” admits Cynthia. “I’m sure they were as well!” Ya think!?
Everyone has returned safely and soundly from Jamaica. Well, safely if you don’t count gushing emotional wounds! But, at the very least, everyone is trying to move on from the traumatic trip by focusing on the positives in their lives. For Kim Fields that means doing what she does best: Keeping it professional.
After being re-inspired (HA!) by directing Cynthia Bailey‘s ‘mercial, Kim has a Skype meeting with Art, her longtime agent, to discuss the future of her directorial career. Art wants examples of Kim’s recent projects to use as a reel for other clients – including a new TV show. Please Lord do not tell me Kim is considering the CB Eyewear ‘mercial a legit indicator of her abilities!?
TMZ is accepting collect calls from Federal Inmate Apollo Nida. Apollo answered questions about the status of his marriage (or rather, his divorce) from Phaedra Parks, staying in touch with his children, and relocating prisons. Apparently the new prison has better “ambiance”. Oh my…
Recently Apollo agreed with his Real Housewives Of Atlanta star wife that prison is no place for The Prince and Mr. President to visit. Now he’s changed his opinion.“For my own mental sanity, I tried to kind of recognize where she [Phaedra] was coming from, but I never agreed on the fact that I did not want to see my children.”
