Now, Phaedra was smart enough to put a strong pre-nup in place, so she’s not losing all her money like some initially suspected. However, Phaedra actually refers to the con as an emotional entity, going into detail about how Apollo betrayed her and lied to her the entire time.
The episode showed Phaedra getting advice from a top divorce lawyer about how to proceed with divorcing Apollo Nida, but the big question that the lawyer asked Phaedra Parks was why she even married Apollo, knowing that he’d been in prison once already…
Phaedra replied, “I married him because I thought he was a changed man; I married him because I knew that he loved me. I believed that he wanted to be someone different… I chose to believe him and maybe he was conning me the whole time.”
The lawyer also elaborated on the divorce agreement, confirming that Phaedra and Apollo won’t have a financial disagreement because of the prenup. However, custody of the couple’s children would remain an issue, especially since the lawyer specifically notes that they need to have contact with their father. And yes, this is the father that has been to prison once already and is stuck in prison again, and is more or less a reality TV star/con man. And his kids should keep in touch with him… why exactly? See, is this lawyer talking reality TV speak, or is he genuinely giving advice?
At the end of the day, it’s up to Phaedra Parks on how she wants to proceed. I imagine she’ll drag this whole saga out as long as possible though, considering that she is on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and the show thrives off this type of conflict.
