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.

It's officially over for Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida. The reality star says she has retained counsel and will be amicably ending the couple's marriage.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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."

After briefly going AWOL, Apollo Nida has finally checked into the Kentucky prison that will serve as his home for the next eight years.

Apollo left for prison yesterday morning, but decided to make a detour along the way and stop by the home of his estranged wife Phaedra Parks.

Nida verbally attacked Parks, forced himself into her home and made off with some of her property, all while cameras were rolling, witnesses say.

Given his unusual behavior, many assumed The Real Housewives of Atlanta star would go on the run. Late last night, however, Nida posted the following video message online:

"Well, everyone, I have finally arrived at the penitentiary," Nida says in the 16-second clip. "I'm about to go asunder. Thank you for the support and prayer. Stay tuned and you'll hear from me shortly."

Earlier today, we reported that Apollo Nida had reported to prison after spending his last months as a free man avoiding his wife and children.

Now it seems that Nida is a wanted man after failing to turn himself in.

Yes, Apollo apparently had a last-minute change of heart.

About both prison and his family. TMZ reports that the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star decided to pay one final visit to his estranged wife Phaedra Parks.

As you might've guessed, it didn't go well.

Apollo reportedly demanded that Phaedra put money into his prison account and bring their children for visits while he's locked up. She refused and that's when he really lost it:
