Phaedra Parks has discussed her divorce with Apollo Nida. The star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta says cheating allegations with chocolate are just absurd. Making her first appearance on television, Wednesday since Nida gave his guilty plea in a federal court in May. Well, what Parks has done, she expressed her feelings to television host, Ellen DeGeneres, she talked about her betrayal feelings and that she cheated with someone, who is known by the name Chocolate.
“Did you have anything in the back of your mind that he was doing anything?” the comedienne, 56, asked her guest, 40, on her eponymous talk show. “This was for fraud right? Did you have any idea?”
“I really didn’t,” the Bravo realit ystar insisted. “I mean, I work. I just got my fifth college degree. And so I’m pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast-feeding three months ago. So, I didn’t have any idea this was going on until he called me and he said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’ So I went out of my way to get him the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do anything I could, because I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him to have the best. So we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that.”
DeGeneres noted that Parks met Nida when he was on parole. “So, there was a flag right? Or no?”
“Well, um…,” Parks stammered as the audience laughed nervously. “Well, to be honest, he had been to prison and he was a changed person,” she offered. “So the person I married, I thought he was changed.”
