Phaedra Parks Confirms Decision To Divorce Apollo Nida + Denies Cheating

Published

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.”

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy

Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
