Phaedra Parks is staying strong, while her estranged husband Apollo Nida is serving his eight-year jail sentence. The mother of two spoke exclusively to HollywoodLife.com, telling us that her main priority is being a ‘successful mom.’
Challenges make you stronger. That’s the motto Phaedra Parks is living by, while Apollo Nida is in prison and she’s raising her two young boys. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star gave us an update on how Apollo is doing, and assured us that she’s keeping her head up high — you’ll be shocked by what she revealed is her most recent accomplishment!
Phaedra Parks: ‘Challenges Make You Stronger’
Apollo just slammed Phaedra from behind bars with his first interview from jail, but meanwhile, Phaedra is taking the high road, choosing not to bash her soon-to-be ex-husband.
“He is fine!” Phaedra told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY at the Dec. 11 Disney On Ice event in Los Angeles when we asked how Apollo is doing with his legal troubles (to say the least).
As for Phaedra, how she’s doing?
“Everything is good!” she tells us. “I have wonderful parents, a wonderful team that is very supportive. It takes a village to be a successful mom. I have a great staff with great people that are very supportive.”
The reality star added, “You know, challenges make people who they are, makes you stronger! I have never really focused on certain challenges because at the end of the day, challenges lead to more success.”
Phaedra Parks: What Is She Celebrating These Days?
Phaedra’s outlook on life is pretty clear — keep your head up high, even during tough times — but has she been able to enjoy any major accomplishments, while dealing with her divorce and Apollo? (Not to mention, the drama with the housewives.)
The Georgia peach told us that she recently graduated from mortuary school! (Betcha weren’t expecting that.) She celebrated “with my friends and family, we had dinner and cake.”
