Apollo Nida parties with Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas but not Phaedra Parks

Apollo Nida, the husband of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks, apparently doesn't see a problem with going out and partying with friends a bit, instead of spending as much time as he can with his wife and children, before he has to turn himself in to serve a lengthy prison sentence. As reported by Wetpaint Entertainment on Monday, July 21, Apollo was spotted partying with Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas last week. Missing from the fun was Phaedra Parks.

Apollo went to Peter's Bar One lounge last Thursday night. He was there with Cynthia and Peter to celebrate Cynthia's Ebony Magazine feature. Apollo had already went to Bar One just a few days prior to hang out with Peter and Kandi Burruss' husband Todd Tucker, as evidenced by an Instagram photo posted to the lounge's Instagram account. Two people replied to the photo to criticize Apollo for going out instead of spending quality time with his family before his prison sentence of eight years starts.

Considering how hostile things seem between Apollo and Phaedra right now though, it's no wonder that she chose to stay away from her husband while he went out to have a good time. While Phaedra has stayed silent over Apollo's sentence and the current state of their marriage, Apollo hasn't been afraid to criticize his wife. In fact, while as a guest on Atlanta's B-100 radio station recently, Apollo slammed Phaedra for not going to his sentencing hearing, which took place a few weeks ago.

Towards the end of the interview, one of the radio hosts asked Apollo if his marriage to Phaedra will survive his prison sentence. Apollo said that he doubts that it will and pointed out that his wife didn't even show up to his sentencing. He said that he's "still salty about that." If Apollo didn't get Phaedra's support earlier, he probably won't get any now with comments like that!

The big question now is how Phaedra Parks will address Apollo Nida's absence on the next season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," if she actually returns. Will she show her vulnerable side to viewers or will she pretend as if everything's fine?
