Apollo Nida is pretty open when it comes to his marriage to Phaedra Parks. While Phaedra, one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," prefers to keep their marital problems under wraps, Apollo is more willing to air out their issues with viewers. As reported by Wetpaint Entertainment on Tuesday, June 10, Apollo has even admitted that the way he entered into the marriage was a mistake.
In the latest episode of Kandi's wedding spin-off show, in which he gives advice to Todd Tucker regarding his prenup. Viewers saw Apollo urge Todd to be fully involved in the prenuptial agreement process and to not make the same mistake he did with with Phaedra.
In an interview with the website Straight From the A, Apollo explained where he was coming from when he gave Todd that advice. He said that he believes that Kandi and Todd, since they both have their own businesses, should have entered into the marriage as equals, despite their unequal earning power. He wanted Todd to put his foot down and not do what he did.
Apollo admitted that he "went into [his] relationship not really voicing an opinion." Instead of being involved, he just let Phaedra do everything, since he believed that she had his best interests in mind as his soon-to-be wife and attorney.
While some may take Apollo's frank admission has indication that he feels used by Phaedra, he clarified that he's "not saying that someone was taking advantage of [him]," only that it was mistake for him to not be proactive and hands on with the prenuptial agreement. However, he then said that if people do what he did, or more accurately didn't do, they're "going to be blindsided." Perhaps Apollo's been "blindsided" by a few things already?
Since Phaedra Parks is one of Kandi Burruss' best friends, even serving as a bridesmaid at her April wedding to Todd, it's likely that she gave advice to Kandi about the prenup as well. Whether she would have urged Kandi to treat Todd as an equal despite her massive wealth is anyone's guess.
Their co-star NeNe Leakes confirmed in late May that all of the cast members from season six have been asked to return for season seven of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." It's not clear whether Apollo Nida, who pleaded guilty to charges of mail, wire, and bank fraud in early May, will be seen on the new season, since his sentencing date is set for Tuesday, July 8.
