Phaedra Parks appeared on Watch What Happens Live, after the Sunday night episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, to answer some questions about the state of her marriage to Apollo Nida, who is now residing in a federal prison in Kentucky.
This season has been a pivotal one for Parks, as America watches Apollo’s last couple of months of freedom, along with the demise of her marriage, right along with her. Cohen asked Phaedra how it has felt watching it all back, as the season continues.
“Anytime you are dealing with something very personal in the media and on TV it’s very difficult,” Parks tells Cohen. “It’s quite uncomfortable.”
When Parks was questioned about how she reacted to Apollo’s behavior towards her during the just aired nightclub scene, she explained that his threatening tone was not unusual.
“Obviously we’ve seen Apollo become aggressive on the show, He has been on an emotional roller coaster. He’s been up and down and it’s been quite difficult to deal with his personality… whichever one shows up.”
Cohen went on to press Parks about the current state of her marriage, and questioned just how much communication there is between she and Apollo.
“We are amicably resolving this marriage. Resolving to dissolve. She added, “Oh yeah, I talk to him at least five, six times a week if not more,”
It sounds like this couple’s relationship is better when Apollo is in the clink….maybe the slammer communication brings back some memories of the good old days, early in their criminal romance? Phaedra also shared that her young boys are in contact with their father.
“Obviously we have a one-year old, so he really doesn’t comprehend,” Phaedra says. “Ayden definitely knows that he [Apollo] is in Kentucky and Apollo told him where he was so he definitely is very aware. Very tough for a four-year old.”
Prince and Mr. President have been dealt a raw deal with these parents, and certainly seem to have an uphill climb ahead. Many believe that there is much to be revealed about Miss Southern Belle,Phaedra Parks. Stay tuned!
