Phaedra Parks will reportedly return to Bravo for a seventh season of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" -- but is she doing it to cover her husband's butt?

In a new Life & Style report, it was alleged that Parks had signed back onto the series in an effort to repay her husband Apollo's fraud victims. However, a second report claims that is far from the case.

"It’s more likely that Parks and Nida will divorce, with a source close to the situation telling us they’d be 'shocked' if Parks gave Nida the millions he needs to pay back victims of his fraud," Gossip Cop reported on Aug. 1.

Earlier this month, Nida was sentenced to eight years behind bars after pleading guilty to charges of identity theft and bank fraud. Prior to his sentencing, Nida was facing 30 years behind bars, but after cooperating with federal investigators, he was able to come to an agreement for a lesser sentence.

In the last few weeks, there have been conflicting reports regarding Parks' return to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." At first, sources claimed the star would be leaving the show and focusing on her family, including her two kids, during the difficult time. It was then alleged that Parks would return -- and that her husband would be at her side.

However, according to Media Take Out, Parks is not planning on continuing her relationship with Nida, despite having two kids with him, and recently filed for divorce after kicking him out of the home they once shared.

According to the Gossip Cop, a source had told Life & Style, "She’s going to help Apollo pay that money back."
