We’ve heard through the grapevine that things haven’t been so solid in the Parks/Nida household — even before Apollo’s recent arrest for bank fraud and identity theft.
In fact, our sources say that was ultimately the last straw. Radar Online points out the two haven’t actually been photographed since November of 2013.
Apollo’s trial has been delayed to March 25 — which is right around the corner. You would think that with Phaedra being a lawyer, that she’d be sticking around to help her husband prepare for his trial. That’s not the case.
Instead, she’s been on a book tour for her advice guide Secrets of a Southern Belle – even though it was released more than three months ago.
Nida was arrested on January 24. Soon after, she announced a book signing at Atlanta City Hall for one week later on January 31 (that had to be pushed back after the Georgia ice storm). On February 7, she signed in Atlanta, before heading off on a tour that took her to New Orleans (February 14); Harvey, Louisiana (February 15); Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi (February 16); Alexandria, Louisiana (February 17); Shreveport (February 18, 19); Ridgeland, Mississippi (February 20); Jackson, Alabama (February 21); and Birmingham, Alabama (February 22). She’ll head north to North Carolina on February 26.
If that wasn’t red flag enough, Apollo spent his Valentine’s Day in South Carolina partying with other women — NOT with his wife who was in New Orleans.
Because of the terms of Apollo’s bail, he’s required to clear any out-of-state trips with the court and travel with a court-appointed supervisor. It says a lot that instead of clearing a trip to New Orleans to be with his wife on the most romantic day of the year, he went to South Carolina to party it up.
We’re holding out hope that Phaedra and Apollo both participate in The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion — but we have a strong feeling neither of them will want to answer to the rest of the ladies — or Andy.
