The Real Housewives of Atlanta star “has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage,” her rep, Steve Honig, exclusively confirms to E! News in a statement
The same day that Nida entered prison, Honig issued a statement on Phaedra’s behalf to E! News. Parks “is now putting all of her energy into ensuring the well-being of her two children and making decisions that are in their best interests,” he said. “This situation has put a tremendous strain on Phaedra and her family and she is working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone’s lives.”
Prior to the start of Apollo’s sentence, a source told E! News that he had “been out partying every single night” adding that Nida has “made things very uncomfortable” for the Bravo star.
“When he does speak to Phaedra, it’s always about money,” the source said. “He owes a huge debt in restitution and he wants to know if she’s going to help him with it. ‘Are you going to give me money?’ is always his question. He still wants her financial support.”
Season 7 of ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ touches down on November 9th 2014.
