Yesterday, Apollo Nida begged Phaedra Parks to take him back in his first interview since beginning an eight-year prison sentence.

Nida went so far as to suggest he and Parks had worked things out and he expected to reconcile with his estranged wife after his release.

Phaedra has yet to respond to Apollo's claims publicly, but friends say she reacted to the interview pretty much as you would expect:

"Apollo is in jail and Phaedra has moved on," a source tells Radar Online. "She is focused on being the best possible mother to their two young sons, Ayden and Dylan."

So it sounds like the Phaedra-Apollo divorce will take place as scheduled. Not exactly surprising news, considering Nida nearly assaulted Parks just before he turned himself in to prison officials.

After being convicted of fraud and identity theft back in May, Apollo Nida is serving an eight-year prison sentence at a Georgia correctional facility.

In his first prison interview since (reluctantly) turning himself in in September, Nida reports that he's adjusting well to prison life, and is hoping that his ex-wife Phaedra Parks will wait for him on the outside.

Nida and Parks split shortly before he was found guilty, and sources say the divorce is proceeding rapidly (we imagine there's not much squabbling over kids and property when one half of the couple is behind bars).

The breakup seemed to be mutual, and there were accusations of infidelity from both parties.

Now, however, Apollo wants to give his marriage a second try, but we imagine his pleas will fall on deaf ears:

Sunday on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 2, Kandi decided to buy her mom a new house, while Apollo dropped another bombshell on the cast.

And then there's Kenya. There's always drama with Kenya ... and Apollo.

When The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 2 picked up after last week's ratings record-setting premiere, the fireworks were still in full effect.

Apollo actually tried to make amends with Kenya Moore, admitting that he had lied about her wanting to have sex with him in L.A. during last season.

"I apologize to you. It was a lie," Nida said of the allegation he made.

Was it too little, too late for Kenya? As she noted, and you know if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, this claim infuriated other cast members.

Under fire for her various feuds with co-stars, The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member NeNe Leakes says she is 100 percent on Team Phaedra Parks.

  • NeNe Leakes on Serenity
  • Phaedra Parks on Education

You don't have to watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online to know that Parks has been put through the wringer by estranged, imprisoned husband Apollo Nida.

Nida entered prison in September to begin his eight-year sentence on bank fraud and identity theft charges. Phaedra Parks will divorce him, she recently confirmed.

While she's clashed with just about everybody on the show, NeNe Blogged this week that "it’s always sad to see a family end no matter who’s right or wrong.”

She says she was "a rock for Phaedra during this time and never judged her.”

Perhaps throwing shade at others who can't exactly say the same, NeNe pointed out that she hopes the incident will serve as “an eye opener” for Phaedra.

They're back and crazier than ever! Bravo's top-rated Real Housewives have returned, with reinforcements, for a seventh season of drama in the ATL.

If this premiere is any indication, it's gonna get dirty in the south with all the mud slinging going on. Just ask Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida or ... any of them really.

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 1, we got a behind the scenes look at the much talked about hours before Nida's prison sentencing.

Spoiler alert: It was not pretty.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, or read any celebrity news lately, you know Nida is behind bars for fraud. What is it with these Bravo stars?

He and Teresa Giudice should just stick to flipping tables and stuff. That's gotta pay the bills, right? What's the deal with wannabe white collar criminals?

Anyway, "Life is extremely difficult right now" for his estranged with Parks, who took her two sons, Ayden and Dylan, to a hotel instead of the courtroom.

"Apollo's actions are the ultimate betrayal," she said of Nida, whose checkered past was a red flag long before this. "I thought he was a changed man."

Nida sees it differently.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns Sunday, and in this sneak peek from the Season 7 opener, we get a glimpse of one of the show's biggest breakups.

Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida have been the topic of great speculation ever since he was convicted and sentenced to prison on various fraud charges.

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 1, we get a little behind the scenes perspective on how - and when - their union collapsed ...

Phaedra Parks is divorcing Apollo Nida, and has officially hired a divorce attorney to make this happen as he serves his eight-year stint in prison.

Before she took that legal step, the couple parted ways on the morning of his sentencing, which he was not happy about, but she felt she had no choice in.

“It’s the morning of Apollo’s sentencing, and I’ve decided not to be at our house because of the people trying to snap pictures of my children,” Phaedra says.

For his part, Apollo feels betrayed and abandoned by his wife, which no doubt led to the epic fight before he turned himself in to prison at a later date.

“I’m not a murderer. I’m not a child molester. I wasn’t the guy on the corner selling cocaine,” Apollo says to the cameras, just hours before his sentencing.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills doesn't return to Bravo until November, but Brandi Glanville is already exercising her trash-talking muscle.

Appearing on The Steve Harvey Show today, Brandi opened up about everything from her feelings toward her fellow Housewives (Hates 'em!), to her thoughts on Botox. (Loves it!)

Steve rattled off some names from Bravo's most popular franchise and asked for the first thing that pops into Brandi's mind. As you might guess, the results were hilarious:

Kyle Richards? "Two-faced!" Ramona Singer? "Bat sh-t crazy!" Teresa Giudice? "Sad, I feel bad for that whole situation." Well, Teresa headed going to prison for 15 months, so that's a fair reaction.

Brandi actually had some nice things to say about Teresa Giudice and Phaedra Parks, but her highest praise was for Botox:

Phaedra Parks sat down with Ellen this week and broke her silence on Apollo Nida, saying that she did all she could for her soon to be former husband.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star discussed Nida's prison sentence and the impending divorce that she just went public with after months of speculation.

"I work, I just got my fifth college degree ... I'm pretty much an overachiever," she said. "I have two small children. I just stopped breastfeeding three months ago."

"So, I didn't have any idea that any of this was going on until he called me and he said 'I've been arrested and I'm having this problem, but it's not true.'"

She famously skipped his July sentencing hearing, which was a key sign that a Phaedra Parks-Apollo Nida divorce was pretty much a foregone conclusion.

Parks insists she stood by her husband at the start of the ordeal, however, working with him to fight the case when he first informed her of the trouble he was in.

"I went out of my way to get the best attorneys, the best investigators, and to do everything I could," Parks explained to Ellen. "I'm an attorney myself."

Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is disappointed that the fairy tale ending she thought she found with husband Apollo Nida became a nightmare.

She's certain she made the right decision to divorce Nida, however.

"Phaedra is really disappointed with how all of this has turned out," a source says of the couple, noting that Parks takes no joy in doing this, and it wasn't an easy call.

Her estranged husband is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence for fraud. Apollo checked into prison last month after a blowout fight with Phaedra.

Cameras caught the reality TV couple's last hurrah after the wannabe white collar criminal briefly went AWOL and stopped by the house they used to share.

Whether you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online or on TV, this is going to be a crazy season, but Parks doesn't relish that either. She's shell-shocked.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member "has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage," her rep, Steve Honig, confirms.

As rumored earlier this week, Parks was gearing up to break her silence on Nida, who recently entered prison to begin serving an eight-year sentence.

Like Teresa Giudice but even guiltier, he is off to the big house for fraud, but not before allegedly RAGING at Parks the day before he checked into lockup.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you're going to see some major fireworks this coming season, which begins next month on Bravo.

Nida, who was in jail for six years between 2003-09 for car theft charges, got out and quickly married Parks, with whom he has sons Dylan and Ayden.

Not surprisingly, the consensus has been that Phaedra would divorce Apollo while he's behind bars. Not the model husband you wait around for, honestly.
