Phaedra isn’t letting Apollo’s legal drama get her down! The ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star is going through a tough time after her husband was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for a $2.3 million-money laundering scheme, but Kandi Burruss tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that her BFF is staying strong and putting on a brave face!
Phaedra Parks is nothing if not a positive, powerful woman, and despite the fact that her husband, Apollo Nida, will be going away for a long time, Kandi Burruss assures us that her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star is going to be just fine. “Phaedra’s doing great,” Kandi tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
No one knows Phaedra better than her best friend Kandi, who is not at all worried about her fellow Real Housewife — especially since Phaedra has the perfect outlet for her feelings.
“She’s basically working. That’s how I deal with things too; when I have a lot going on, I just put more into work,” Kandi tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I know that she’s promoting her book and doing the book tour and stuff like that and she’s not really trying to focus as much on what’s happening.”
It sounds like Phaedra is coping with her husband’s legal troubles pretty well, but it’s good to know that she has Kandi to turn to if she ever needs a shoulder to cry on.
Apollo Nida: ‘RHOA’ Husband Sentenced To 8 Years In Prison
Phaedra’s husband, Apollo, was sentenced to jail for eight years on July 8 after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft in May. Apollo is hopeful that his wife will stand by him during his jail time.
“I think Phaedra, in a perfect world, should be supportive as a wife should be … But if she chooses to derail from the plan, then that’s what she chooses to do,” he told Atlanta radio station V-103 in May. “Whatever’s been thrown at me, I deal with it. I would like to say I would want her to stay around and do what a wife should do. But tomorrow’s not promised.”
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Phaedra stand by Apollo? Let us know!
