The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘s Apollo Nida was sentenced earlier this week to 8 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to identity theft and bank fraud and according to good friend and fellow cast member Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Apollo’s wife Phaedra is keeping it together.
In an interview with HollywoodLife.com, Kandi says that her best friend is staying positive.
“Phaedra’s doing great,” says Kandi.
“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. 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.”
At this point the only thing she really can do is keep working — especially since she’ll be the only one providing for her and Apollo’s two children for the foreseeable future.
The question is — do you think she’ll stand by her man’s side while he does his time?
