Apollo Nida has finally spoken out about the state of his marriage to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks. In an interview with Sister 2 Sister magazine, as excerpted by The Young, Black, and Fabulous on Monday, April 28, Apollo opened up about where things stand with Phaedra, whether he thinks their marriage will last and what she think of his pending bank fraud and identity theft case.

Speaking about his marriage, Apollo admitted that he and Phaedra have lost sight of the bigger picture, which is that they did take an oath before God and that they have two children and a fitness brand together. Tellingly, he spoke about Phaedra and their marriage as if it was all in the past. "Whatever has come of this reality fiasco, we have had two beautiful children, and at the end of the day, I only wish her the best," he said. Yet Apollo didn't say that he and Phaedra are getting divorced.

Rather, Apollo admitted that he isn't sure if the marriage will last but hopes that it does. He refuted some people's claims that he does not love Phaedra. “I can’t say if it’s going to last. But I hope that it does…I definitely love her. I’ve grown to love her more," he said. Apollo also spoke out about his bank fraud and identity theft charges, noting that while he's not really nervous about it, he's sure Phaedra's nervous "because at the end of the day, [he's] putting [his] career in jeopardy.”

During her appearance on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live," Phaedra said that she's standing by her man - at least for now. She said that she believes in family and that she will support Apollo "until this [his court case] is resolved," she said. Her comment lead some to believe that the two may very well divorce once he is sentenced. One thing that Phaedra Parks has made clear is that she won't be representing Apollo Nida in court. She gave a quick "hell no" in response to representing her husband in court.
