LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – The Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida divorce tonight heats up on RHOA. Apollo Nida wants a divorce and he claims that Phaedra Parks is allegedly cheating on him with a guy named Mr. Chocolate (which she denies). But tonight Phaedra tells her side of the story. Parks has made clear to viewers previously that “Mr. Chocolate” does not exist, and such allegations are false and baseless.
However, LALATE can report that one picture will dominate either a storyline later in the RHOA season or during the reunion. It does not concern Mr. Chocolate. But it does question what was going between Phaedra and Apollo at the time. It is the above July 2014 yacht picture. Tonight’s RHOA 7 episode 2 features Phaedra claiming that she is taking her kids to a dentist appointment and does not want Apollo’s “foolishness” to impact their visit. But LALATE can report that Phaedra was often more apart from Apollo at the time than she will show viewers tonight.
Tonight, Phaedra says she is staying afar from Apollo for the sake of her kids. But is Phaedra’s “reality” TV statement correct? “This is Ayden’s first dentist appointment. And I can’t let Apollo’s issues and foolishness to prevent them from having a pleasant visit to the doctor.”
Apollo is furious. He tells viewers “I need to tell Ayden what is going on. I’m not sure how is going to take it. I’m not sure.” But Phaedra states “my goal is to be parent. and as a parent my job is to protect my boys.” But Apollo is hurting. “This are the precious moments and I’m going to be away. That is why I hurt the most.”
Parks says “Apollo has basically broke up our family”. But at the time of tonight’s filming, Phaedra was also at that time vacationing without Apollo. The above picture turned heads when it hit social media in July 2014. Viewers at the time thought that Apollo and Phaedra were still together.
Parks appeared on a yacht for Fantasia Barrino’s birthday in July 2014 having the time of her life, while Apollo was trying to figure out how to save his family and prepare for his departure to prison. Kandi Burruss tweeted at the time “Uh oh! @todd167 is mad at me because this has turned into a girls trip”.
