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."
