Phaedra Parks, your family has just been dealt a crushing blow. Your husband, Apollo Nida, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for identity theft and bank fraud, and you should NOT wait out his sentence — you need to live your own life and think about your two young children!
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks suffered the unimaginable this week — her husband, Apollo Nida, was sentenced to eight years in prison following a conviction for identity theft and bank fraud. Furthermore, her two young children will be growing up without a father! That’s so sad, and Phaedra, you should not put your life on hold while Apollo is in prison!
Phaedra Parks: Divorce Apollo Nida While He’s In Prison, Or At Least Keep Your Options Open
Phaedra has two young children to worry about — Dylan is just over a year old, and Ayden hasn’t even started school yet. Sources have reported to HollywoodLife.com that Phaedra is devastated that her two children will grow up without a father, and we don’t blame her!
For that reason, Phaedra simply cannot put her life on hold for eight years while Apollo rests on his laurels in prison for his criminal activity!
We’re not saying that she needs to divorce him right away, however — she certainly has enough to worry about before filing papers, and we’re sure that she still loves him deeply! This is truly a heartbreaking situation for her. We’re just saying that Phaedra needs to keep her options open while Apollo is in prison.
Phaedra Parks Needs To Think About Herself And Her Two Young Children During This Heartbreaking Situation
If Phaedra meets somebody — maybe a father figure for her two young children — then great, she should be allowed to do that without guilt. If she doesn’t meet somebody then that’s fine, too. However, she needs to be open to the possibility and Apollo should respect that what he did was wrong and that he deserves the consequences that go along with it — including possibly losing his loving wife.
It’s true that marriages are generally supposed to survive through better and for worse, but this is kind of a lot for any wife to take. The fact that her children are so young is what will make this especially difficult for her.
If, by some miracle, Phaedra doesn’t meet anybody during the eight years that Apollo is in prison, then by all means, maybe they’ll find that they’ll be able to reconnect. Apollo is still the father of her children, however, so, either way, they will definitely need to seek couples counseling once Apollo is released so that the two can navigate raising Ayden and Dylan as a team.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you agree that Phaedra shouldn’t wait for Apollo? Do you think that she should divorce him right away? Or should she remain celibate, her children without a father, until he is released? Let us know what you think!
