In an interview set to air on Wednesday, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks opens up to Ellen DeGeneres about her troubled marriage to reality star and now jailbird, Apollo Nida.
During her chat with the talkshow host, the 41-year-old was candid about Nida’s legal troubles and admitted that she had no idea what was going on. Apollo began his eight year sentence last month in a Kentucky prison after being convicted of fraud.
“I work. I just got my fifth college degree. I am pretty much an over achiever. I have two very small children, I just stopped breast feeding three months ago,” she said during her first television appearance since Nida’s sentencing. “I didn’t have any idea that any of this was going on until he called me and said ‘hey, I’ve been arrested, I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.'”
She continued, “I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators and to do everything I could because I’m an attorney myself and I wanted him to have the best so that we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”
Ellen then questioned Parks about marrying a man who was on parole when they first met. “He had been to prison but he was a changed person,” Phaedra explained. “The person I married I thought he was changed.”
She added, “My heart aches for my two sons because they are the heart and soul of who I am and that’s the best thing we ever did together. We have great kids and I never wanted to do anything to diminish his character in public. But we’ve had some times where he’s done things that weren’t so cool, weren’t so nice.”
Phaedra confirmed to Ellen that she is indeed preparing to divorce Nida. “I have made that decision [to divorce him.]”
In the trailer for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, it’s suggested the Phaedra cheated on Apollo with a man named Chocolate. And of course, the mother of two denied the allegations when DeGeneres asked her about it.
“I think it’s totally absurd to think that I cheated … Everybody knows I do love a snicker bar every once in a while, but it’s definitely not a man from Africa that I ever had an affair with. I think sometimes when people are hurting they do things to hurt other people and there’s been a lot of lashing out from Apollo. I think he’s in an angry place.”

It was a media frenzy outside of the Bloom Firm offices on Wednesday morning all thanks to Kevin Hart’s mistress, Montia Sabbag, who decided to speak out about the latest extortion scandal.
An emotional Montia stood alongside famous lawyer, Lisa Bloom, to talk about the night she was caught on camera being intimate with the married comedian. “I was involved with Kevin a month ago,” she said during her opening statement.
The aspiring actress then went on to emphatically state that she is not the culprit behind the now viral video making it’s way around the web. “I’m not an extortionist,” she said.
The alleged victim also shut down media reports that she is an exotic dancer. “I am not a stripper,” Montia proclaimed. “I’m a recording artists and an actress and I have to broken any laws. I had nothing to do with these recordings.”
Sabbag concluded her on camera statement by apologizing for “any involvement I had in this.”
As for how the two met — HipHollywood got down to the burning question when we sat down one-on-one with Bloom. “They met on the way to Vegas,” she explained. “It was a brief relationship, it was only a few days. It happened spontaneously. She didn’t know she was going to be meeting him.”
As for what’s next, Bloom plans on going to law enforcement so that the case can be investigated thoroughly.
She also tells us their goal is not to get money from Kevin. “This is not about money. We are not suing Kevin Hart. We are to not making any claims against Kevin Hart … he’s not the bad guy here,” she said. “The bad guy here is the criminal who put a camera in that hotel room and secretly recorded intimate moments.”
