The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Phaedra Parks has remained relatively quiet this fall, despite the turmoil in her marriage and within the show's cast.

That's about to change.

The attorney and reality star will give Ellen the scoop next week in an interview touching on some of the big changes going on in her life, and the show.

Apollo and Phaedra Pic

Phaedra's husband Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight YEARS in prison in July, triggering a raging torrent of gossip items about the couple and their future.

Specifically, people want to know if (and when) Parks wants a divorce, and what really happened during their epic fight before Apollo checked into prison.

We'll just have to wait.

“I can confirm Phaedra will be doing an exclusive interview with Ellen DeGeneres on October 14 that will air on October 15,” her rep told Dish Nation.

NeNe Leakes muses every off-season about walking away from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, yet always ends up back on board when the show returns.

Now we know why. NeNe's salary for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 has been revealed, and her haul will be a record-breaker for the network.

Just how big a haul are we talking about here? Read on ...

NeNe Leakes Is Honest
"I'm not gonna stab you in the back. I'm gonna stab you in the chest."

NeNe got a massive pay raise and will be earning a stunning $1.5 million for the upcoming season, making her the highest paid Bravo reality star.

Leakes was able to “broker the huge pay increase because she is the most popular housewife of any of the Bravo franchises,” a source confirmed.

“Without NeNe, RHOA wouldn’t be the ratings blockbuster that it continues to be. “NeNe made it known she would need a significant raise to [return]."

Bravo execs, in the end, "had no choice but to agree to it.”

"While some of the other shows including RHONJ and RHONY have endured ratings slumps, Atlanta has never had to endure that,” the source said.

Bravo may have just blindsided Porsha Williams by reducing her to "friend" status on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, but that's only how she sees it.

From the network's point of view, executives and producers had long been fed up with her behavior before finally growing tired enough of it to demote her.

Porsha Porsha Porsha

As it turns out, Porsha's demotion became public knowledge after The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 trailer's release this week for a reason.

She was going to be a series regular, but got knocked down a peg after filming had begun, after producers once again got fed up with her antics.

Even her monumental fight with Kenya Moore wasn't enough to get Porsha fired, but her actions once the new season began filming were her undoing.

Bravo tried to get Williams and Moore to talk things out, but Porsha nearly fought Kenya again ... and went after new cast member Claudia Jordan.

Porsha Williams was apparently as surprised as we were by her demotion to a recurring role on Bravo's The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7.

With the release of the new season's first trailer, and a not-so-cryptic message from the star on Instagram, we assumed Porsha is done with the show.

Not so fast, she says, assuring fans (which evidently she has) that it's not her final farewell to the hit series, or life ... just a new chapter or something.

Porsha Williams Crying

"It's not goodbye, you will see me on the show throughout the season sharing and bonding with the other women," she said in a statement Wednesday.

"I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life."

It was not until yesterday's release of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 trailer that we learned of the somewhat surprising casting move.

While NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey will be series regulars, Williams will only be a "friend of the Housewives."

With The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 trailer hitting the web just moments ago, we're hearing even more casting shakeup rumors than usual.

Which is saying something, because it's always something with the RHOA.

Yesterday, we learned that NeNe Leakes might be quitting the show, for real this time, from a cryptic tweet the veteran Housewife posted.

Now, Real Housewives of Atlanta fans on Twitter were abuzz again, as Porsha Williams seemed to announce her departure from the popular Bravo series:

Porsha tweeted the photo above with a caption reading, "No more peach for me, but I still love checking in with my girls #Blessed #SomethingMajor #TeamPorsha"

The "peach" obviously refers to the fruit that the women all hold in the show's opening credits. But what about that "something major?"

You’re not afraid of a little pussy, are you?

Oh, yes, that line is uttered at the outset of the first trailer for The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7, which Bravo just released and which introduces some new faces to the franchise.

Fearsome fivesome NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burruss are all returning on a full-time basis to the series.

Meanwhile, Porsha Williams (whose Season 6 reunion show brawl with Moore will live in series infamy) has been downgraded to recurring player.

Claudia Jordan (a model and former Celebrity Apprentice contestant) is now on board as a cast member, while actress/singer Demetria McKinney will also pop up frequently.

Look for Cynthia and NeNe to try and rebuild their friendship after having a falling out this fall; and also for Phaedra to struggle with raising her two sons after husband Apollo Nida was sent to prison.

Based on the above footage, it looks like Parks may be dating a new man.

And that Nida is anything but happy about it, to put it mildly.

Also: the words "whore" and "slut" are said a lot. Enjoy!

We've heard rumors about NeNe Leakes quitting The Real Housewives of Atlanta in the past, but for some reason, the quotable fan favorite has stubbornly stayed put.

Has she finally had enough of the show that made her a star, however?

NeNe: Who, Me?
We just can't get enough of NeNe's wonderful wacky faces.

It's somewhat baffling, because few - if any - Housewives have found the sort of popularity and success beyond Bravo that NeNe has enjoyed. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online or even read about it, you know the show is more stuffed with insane drama lately than ever before.

So much so, it's hard to imagine that NeNe still has room for it in her life.

And that may be why after seven seasons on the hit series, NeNe might finally be ready to hang up her heels, or so the current rumor goes ...

A new report indicates that Phaedra Parks will divorce her incarcerated husband Apollo Nipa, and plans to serve him with divorce papers in prison.

  • Phaedra Reacts
  • Apollo Nida Shirtless

Days after he started his lengthy prison sentence for bank and wire fraud at FMC Lexington prison in Kentucky, Apollo can now look forward to a rude awakening.

Well, he's probably already had that. It's prison, after all. But Phaedra's divorce filing is about to hit him where it hurts, and there's nothing he can do about it.

“Phaedra’s starting the divorce process all on her own,” a Parks source, says, noting that the Atlanta lawyer has "already drawn up papers herself.”

That's not to say that Apollo plans on going down quietly, despite his felonious ways. He's reportedly planned a preemptive prison strike of his own.

“He wants to write a tell-all book while he’s in there,” a Nida insider dishes.

Hopefully, he takes some writing and reading lasses prior to that, as Apollo Nida's prison video message shows us that he doesn't know what "asunder" means.

At the moment, Apollo Nida is in prison, but apparently before he left for his 8-year vacation at Club Fed, Phaedra Parks' troubled husband filmed some scenes for The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 7.

And based on Kenya Moore's latest online Q&A session with fans, Apollo vindicated her during one of their final scenes together and even apologized on camera!

In case you don't remember, last year, Nida claimed Moore was sexting him and looking for a hook-up while they were both in LA.

Kenya admitted that she and Nida had exchanged text messages, but denies they were sexual in nature.

Apollo stuck to his guns, but apparently had a crisis of conscience before he was shipped off to prison, and he confessed in front of Bravo cameras that he made the whole thing up.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks reportedly wants to divorce Apollo Nida ASAP after the shenanigans he pulled before going to prison.

Attorney Parks will be filing for divorce from her convict husband and has already had the legal documents prepared, a new, not surprising report says.

Apollo Nida reported to prison sometime late Wednesday night or Thursday morning, but not before briefly going AWOL ... and going NUTS on Parks.

En route to the Kentucky penitentiary that will be his home for some time, Nida stopped by his old house and went off on Phaedra in an epic argument.

What exactly was said? We don't know, but Bravo cameras were rolling, so it'll play out next season when we watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

In any case, Parks has had enough. An insider says of the embattled couple:

“Phaedra has been patiently waiting for Apollo to begin serving his prison sentence, and will have him served with divorce papers at the correctional facility."
