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.

Phaedra will be doing an exclusive interview with Ellen DeGeneres on October 14 to air October 15, her rep said, noting that she will be “very candid.”

There will certainly be plenty of questions to answer during that sit-down.

On September 10, Nida was supposed to check into the FMC Lexington, Kentucky, prison but instead went over to Parks’ home and had it out with her.

He was briefly MIA after their epic fight, which Bravo cameras captured.

Nida showed up to prison the next day, leaving Parks shaken up but strong-willed and “eager to set the record straight” in a “no-holds-barred conversation.”

More details to follow as they become available on this newly-official split
