Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is disappointed that the fairy tale ending she thought she found with husband Apollo Nida became a nightmare.
She’s certain she made the right decision to divorce Nida, however.
“Phaedra is really disappointed with how all of this has turned out,” a source says of the couple, noting that Parks takes no joy in doing this, and it wasn’t an easy call.
Her estranged husband is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence for fraud. Apollo checked into prison last month after a blowout fight with Phaedra.
Cameras caught the reality TV couple’s last hurrah after the wannabe white collar criminal briefly went AWOL and stopped by the house they used to share.
Whether you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online or on TV, this is going to be a crazy season, but Parks doesn’t relish that either. She’s shell-shocked.
Despite Nida’s previous run-ins with the law, including a stint in prison prior to their wedding, “[Phaedra] had no idea any of that [illegal activity] was going on.”
Just the same, “this divorce is going to be the best thing for her … Apollo was always really jealous of her success and the fact that she was the breadwinner.”
Apollo admitted as much after getting busted in a federal investigation this year, but the really sad part is that his ego, greed matched his level of stupidity.
His two young sons Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 1, now have to be without their father. No matter how great a job Phaedra does, that’s not a small factor in their lives.
“She knows she will be better off without him,” the Phaedra insider dishes, calling the attorney “a strong woman and a great mom and really adores her boys.”
We can only hope she can handle this. For an early glimpse of the new season, check out The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 trailer right here.
