Speculations about RHOA star Phaedra Parks possibly divorcing her husband Apollo Nida started brewing following Nida’s sentencing to eight years in prison for money laundering and check fraud.
According to HollywoodLife the The Real Housewives of Atlanta regular and mother-of-two is not sympathetic to the fact that her husband will be spending almost a decade behind bars.
“She’s disgusted. She’s angry. But because of Ayden and Dylan [her kids], she’s keeping face and being the nice dutiful wife,” according to a source. “This entire ordeal is extremely hard on her not because Apollo’s going to jail, she thinks he’s getting what he deserves, it’s most difficult because her boys have lost their father. That, to her, is the biggest loss of it all.”

The source continued to say that Parks, who also authored the book The Secrets of the Southern Belle, will likely file for a divorce while Nida is detained.
“That part has yet to be determined,” the source said. “She will though. She’s not planning on sticking by Apollo for eight years. She’s a great woman and will love you to death, but she’s fed up with Apollo and this time she’s making sure he will never disappoint her or their children.”
For the present, Parks plans to focus on parenting and helping her children live normal lives, according to her rep: “Phaedra is now putting all of her energy into ensuring the well-being of her two children and making decisions that are in their best interests. This situation has put a tremendous strain on Phaedra and her family, and she is working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone’s lives.”

Nida was ordered by the court to turn himself in on Wednesday. As of the noon deadline however, Nida was still making a scene in Parks’ house, according to a report from TMZ. He was apparently confronting her for not putting money in his prison account as well as for not taking their children to see him when he was in prison the first time.
