It is a sad situation for the family, but if she love her husband she will wait on him, as long as he treated her as a respectable wife, why not she was with him during the good & bad, I am sorry for the boys to be without him, but I know their mom can hold it down, she know that education is important & her parents set that stage for her & children.

Apollo has not treated her as a respectable wife, he has dogged and trash that “marriage” repeatedly on national tv. Phaedra is not respectable in my eyes either.

Theirs was never a holy (Godly) union.

I think she stick by her husband side because the day of their marriage they also said, the words live each through better or worse which means no matter how bad things may get you need to stick by his side and he need to stick by yours.We all make mistake in life but, at sometime in life we’ll realize its time to grow up and realize I have kids who need their father. Your kids wouldn’t want too see you all separated.

What’s sad is that Phaedra, a mature and allegedly intelligent woman chose to marry a convict fresh out of the penitentiary. No her children didn’t choose this but children don’t make their own choices they have parents to make choices for them. Too bad Phaedra made such a poor choice in the father of her children. I have no sympathy for Phaedra she knew exactly who and what Apollo was and she chose to marry him and have his children in spite of it so she too needs to accept the consequences of her choices!

Dear Phaedra, keeping you and family in prayers. Be strong! Ignore hateful and harsh judgments! Only you know what the truth is. Love is blind, and many others have made similar mistakes in the name of love. I commend you for your faith in redemption. Too bad you believed in your husband more than he believed in himself. Nonetheless, great good always follows great evil, and I am confident your painful journey and experience will be of service to others.

Phaedra KNEW exactly who Apollo was. She should have made a wiser choice in picking him to father her kids instead of being stuck on his LOOKS

I believe that Phaedra will be just fine along with the children. Not sure if the marriage will survive though. Things already on shaken ground. I could probably understand a person being forgiven for one prison stint, I hopes of rehabilitation, but not two..TIME TO MOVE 9N

Phaedra has her own legal problems that she is dealing with. Apollo and Phaedra show little concern for their children engaging in shady, criminal activity.

The kids will still have time to grow up with a dad in their life. Although they will be without their dad up until ages 9 and 11, which is a very sad situation, hopefully he will remain involved, both inside and outside prison, and will be a part of their lives for their very formative preteen and teenage years which will also important for the boys as well.

Just because guys like Apollo contribute sperm, that don’t make them a dad or someone young boys need to have a relationship with. Apollo and Phaedra should very little concern for their well being when he was at the strip club spending stole money like water.

Phaedra should let her mom raise those kids and she should seek intense therapy herself. Phae makes very poor choices.

@Lisa11, why should Phaedra’s mother have to take responsibility for children that aren’t hers?
Phaedra is a successful well educated woman. She should have no problem being a single mom for eight years or more. If she chooses to be.
Just because her man is a criminal and is now in jail. AGAIN!
She has to put on her big girls panties and raise those boys to be productive members of society.
Many parents make poor choices and have bounced back from them.
Her kids are very young and more then likely won’t remember any of this mess.
By the time Apollo gets out of jail. Nobody will even remember his name.
If he doesn’t learn his lesson after this. I say she would be stupid to stay with him.
Once those boys get older, they will have to deal with kids their age coming at them about their dad.
No matter what our parents are we love them unconditionally.
Just because someone makes a few poor choices doesn’t mean they give up and pawn their kids off on someone else.That just make no sense.

@don’t put your hands on me.
Phaedra’s mom already basically raise those children. How do you think they are taken care of with Apollo chasing strippers and Phaedra chasing Apollo. Apollo said that Phae’s mom come every Tuesday and stay until Friday with the kids anyway. She is practically raising them now.

I disagree that Phae is intelligent. She tells lies that are easy to prove wrong, she married a felon and seemingly did nothing to get him the mental rehab he needed. She turned a blind eye to Apollo’s dirty dealings….this is not a sign of intelligence. Phae may be book smart but is lacking in common sense. Or she was just so desparate to have babies, that she took whatever she could get. Either way she and Apollo has many issues that could hurt the boys so they would be better off with their grandmom. Phae has a depostition soon and may be in a world of trouble herself.

He will be out in 4yrs with good behavior, so what’s to sweat. No one seems to think of this. Phaedra will divorce him, seeing that you just can’t change a person’s stripes. (Couldn’t help it)

Phaedra said they knew that Apollo would get some time for months, yet in interviews Apollo is acting like he’s gonna get off light. Phaedra and Apollo get on tv and before cameras and lie like a rug, yet people feel sorry for them. I pray for them that they would let Jesus lead them, I feel sorry for the boys.

Actually…..with The US system the way it is….. He will probably only do 4 years of an 8 year sentence -early release for what is called ‘good behavior’ ………I actually don’t even think he will do that. He could be out in less than 2 with an ‘overcrowding ‘ exemption. He plead guilty to a non-violent crime…… AND please note….. His ‘plea’ never included any mention of a ‘payback’ schedule ….so he walks with ALL the money and doesn’t have to pay back a dime.
So he stole / defrauded people for $2.3 million and may just have to do 24 months…….actually that’s a great rate of return………..looks like crime DOES pay……sigh.

Apollo has to do 5 years 2 months mandatory, six months of those will be spent in halfway house. Federal felons have to serve at least 85% of their sentence.

The question is will Phaedra divorce him or will she take him back when he gets released?

Good question. I don’t think so though. But like Wendy Williams said, she can’t really distance himself from Apollo now or at any point in the future, as he is the father of her two boys.

He goes back on July 17th for the restitution part of the case…he will be required to pay back the money. So..crime does not pay… Unless…you’re Andrew Fastow-frauded 1 billion, sentenced 6yrs, or Nick Leeson-frauded 1.4 billion,sentenced 6 1/2yrs, or Jérôme Kerviel-frauded 4.9 billion, sentenced none-barred from trading, or John Rusnak frauded-691 million, sentenced 7 1/2 & 1million pay back.
If you ask me, Apollo got the shaft. Lesson here is, if you do decide to delve into crimes of fraud, go big money, it would appear you get less time. Or become a white man.
Stupid, stupid, stupid Apollo.

How did Apollo get the shaft? He actually got off with much less time because he snitched. Yes, I agree that race is a determining factor but so is money. Justice is basically for sale. The richer you are the more likely you are gonna be able to buy your way out of jail time.

But Apollo was not shafted, he shafted other people out of 2.3 million. Phaedra was on the board of some of those fake companies that he used to steal money, I don’t know how she has not been formally questioned yet

Not true in the Federal system. For that small amount of time in a Fed. pen., he will probably do the full 8 years. He probably got a downward departure, in federal cases they do it when you “snitch.” States and below levels are the ones that cut sentences down, way down, for good behavior.

Yes, he will be able to bond. Ayden will probably be 10 or 11, and Dylan 9 years old when he gets out. Fathers have bonded with their children who have been in jail for much longer than 8 years. It’s just a shame that these children will learn their father is a thief when he had everything going for him, he wasn’t satisfied.

Why would those kids want to bond with him? Yes, it’s ok to forgive but they don’t have to have an habitual criminal in their lives just because he produced sperm. Phaedra chose her felon, but his boys did not. Taking those boys to the prison every week can do a lot of harm to them.

Phaedra need to check in to therapy herself, and figure out how she can be so hateful and judgmental of others but cover for, help set up false companies for the felon she married. The Lord will take care of those boys and keep them safe.

Phaedra chose her felon and the boys felon father because that’s what every parent does, make choices for their children. I’m sorry that the boys are stuck with a mother who makes such immature and poor choices for their lives.

I am beginning to think Sharee Whitfiled was the wiser to ask for the return of her $5000 retainer from Phaedra and find another lawyer for her back child support case against ex Bob Whitfield. When that show aired I thought Sharee was a bomb loser but now so much has come out in the wash, Phaedra and Apollo scamming and scheming and committing bank fraud and collecting 2.3 million and I understand Sharee and her actions a lot better.

Phaedra had to know what Apollo was up to. She was on the board of some of those fake companies. I feel bad for the boys but apparently the parents didn’t while Apollo was committing the crimes, Phaedra was looking over it and acting like he was such a “clean man”. Phaedra has lied on numerous occasions about an array of issues, it would not surprise me if she is lying now about her involvement or lack thereof.

Remember Andy ask Phaedra what sort of business Apollo was in and she tried to answer but said she wasn’t sure? I felt she was being evasive and didn’t want to talk.

The children dad should be the one to feel sort most, it is a pity that Apollo as a father never think of the repercussions of his action, before he did the crime, I think the children are better off without him as a father because being a father is not just being there but being a good role model for the children. And am sorry go say Apollo is a selfish self absorbed human being that only think of himself, no body else

I though she was moving way to fast to have a second child so soon after her first “C” section with Ayden. Maybe she was doing it to keep her ratings up on the show.
