Apollo Nida is not happy that his wife, Phaedra Parks, didn't attend his sentencing earlier this month.

As Nida appeared in court to face charges of fraud, the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star was on vacation with her girlfriends, including co-star Kandi Burrus, to celebrate the birthday of Fantasia Barrino. Meanwhile, Nida received an eight-year sentence for his allegedly illegal business dealings.

“My wife didn’t even f**king show up for my sentencing,” Nida exclaimed during a radio appearance on Atlanta's B100, according to a July 18 report by Hip Hollywood. “I’m still kind of salty about that.”

According to a July 9 report by Radar Online, Parks had been MIA for the majority of the legal proceedings against her husband, the father of her two children, and prior to his trial, had spent months away from him (95 days to be exact) -- at least away from him publicly.

At this point, a divorce hasn't been made official, but Nida doesn't appear to have much hope. In fact, he's already looking forward, wondering what the split could potentially do to his and Parks' two children.

“I’ve just really been upset at just how I was raised and that I could possibly be taking my son through the same thing. But by the grace of God, he’s still young and we have many years ahead of us,” Apollo revealed.

As for what he thought Parks should have done when it came to his trial, Nida believed she should have been by his side -- for better or worse.

“I think Phaedra, in a perfect world, should be supportive as a wife should be…But if she chooses to derail from the plan, then that’s what she chooses to do,” Nida explained. “I would like to say I would want her to stay around and do what a wife should do. But tomorrow’s not promised.”
