ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Did Apollo Nida send text messages to Kenya Moore? Phaedra Parks defends husband Apollo Nida during tonight’s RHOA reunion 2013. But viewers in previews of tonight’s episode are left to guess if text message were sent by Apollo to Kenya.
Earlier in the season, viewers were displeased when RHOA pushed an egregiously fake storyline about a Phaedra Parks, Apollo divorce looming. The couple were very much in love and never considering divorcing. But producers took a fake storyline from a blog in 2012 and made it the entire subject of the reality show episode. Viewers were left guessing are Phaedra Parks and Apollo getting a divorce?
“Phaedra and Apollo are getting a divorce”, husband Peter Thomas told Cynthia Bailey in previews at the time. “Peter doesn’t show the name of the blog. And despite what Peter reveals, the blog report was nothing but false rumors shot down shortly after they were published.
In July 2012, one blog published a false “exclusive” claiming that Parks went to “her” church Light and Salvation Outreach Ministries Church on a “Sunday” and was ringless. A subsequent news report by Sister 2 Sister confirmed that Parks doesn’t go to that church, and that the church didn’t have even have services that Sunday.
Just this week, another blog posted more untrue statements about Apollo. The same blog last made news for falsely claiming that Nene Leakes “Bentley” was reposed. As LALATE quickly told viewers, Leakes has never owned a Bentley.
RHOA this season has been pushing a Kenya-Apollo theme repeatedly. After that failed, the attempt was on fake marital trouble. Apollo later told viewers “Since we got married, both of us were two different characters, individuals. I think we have left a sense of who we really are deep down inside. I think it makes yourself a bit better.”
Parks is unhappy with the use of the term “bitter”, looking at Apollo displeased. He jabs back. “Stop putting me on the defense. I think I have lost a sense of who I am… I need that person back.” So were text messages sent by Apollo to Kenya, and if so what did they say? The reunion airs tonight on Bravo.
