In shocking news of the day, Apolla Nida is engaged and will appear on the new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta with his fiancée. According to TMZ, Nida will appear from prison with his mystery boo, who, get this, he’s been with for nearly two years.
Sources close to production say Apollo started dating the woman before he started his prison sentence in 2014, and they got engaged a couple months ago.
Says the site:
The woman lives in NJ, not far from the federal prison where he’s serving his sentence, and she visits twice a week. She and Apollo have both shot scenes for the upcoming ‘RHOA’ season — he’s on by phone — and we’re told producers want to keep her identity under wraps until the episode airs.
The news is pretty shocking since Nida’s ex-wife, Phaedra Parks, didn’t file for divorce until 2015, and Nida didn’t even want to sign the papers. So, what does Phaedra think about all of this?
Apparently, cameras caught her reaction to the news. The new fiancée and Parks did not shoot any scenes together, however.
Parks recently announced on the show that her divorce to Nida was final, and she was ready to start dating again. The couple, ironically, got engaged back in 2009 while Nida was serving another prison sentence.
The couple was married for five years, and have two sons.
