Apollo Nida feels that Phaedra Parks has abandoned him since his conviction

By  |  453 Comments

phaedra-apollo-new-babyThe pending divorce and unfortunate breakdown of the marriage of Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks is one of the most talked about relationship outcomes in America right now. With Apollo on his way to prison for fraud, Phaedra is giving the impression that she knew nothing about what he was doing, with The Real Housewife slowly but surely distancing herself from the situation so as to protect her assets and her children.

In a recent string of media appearances, Apollo talks about his future in prison and the state of his relationship with Phaedra. He says that Phaedra “didn’t even come to the f**king sentencing,” and seems to feel that she’s abandoned him when he needed her the most.

In this episode of Financial Lovemaking, Dr. Boyce Watkins and Ebony Magazine Entertainment Director S. Tia Brown discuss the future of this awkward marriage and whether or not there are things that Phaedra could have done to avoid these outcomes with Apollo.

Financial Lovemaking is the award-winning book and podcast about love, life and money. Originally conceived by Finance PhD Dr. Boyce Watkins, the book has helped thousands of people understand how money and love mix together to create a life that you may or may not want, depending on whether or not you make the right choices.

Phaedra met Apollo back in 1995, so the two have a long history together.  Apollo had been sent to prison twice in theft and fraud-related cases, so there is an argument to state that perhaps Phaedra should have seen the warning signs.  Not only does this financial fraud case bring serious emotional setbacks for the couple, there are very real legal implications for Phaedra, as well as the possibility that her own finances could be jeopardized to recover for Apollo’s criminal activity.

The conversation is below:

    She probably warned him to get his act together or she would be done with him. He did it again. She’s out. He got his second chance with a real woman. He blew it. She has every to be done with him.

    Summer, some people believe what they see on TV. This will teach someone else about consequences. There were some whom felt she would wait for him; AGAIN.

    Dr. Watkins point about who you spend your life with is your greatest investmnent is powerful. Perhaps if we vetted each other more thoroughly our divorce rate would not be so high.

    She PLAYED him. She got what she really wanted. Beautiful children with no strings. She KNEW who he was and the likely outcome. Sad for him but she was three steps ahead all the time. Now she will move on and enjoy her life. He was used.

    Why is Phaedra all of a sudden a victim? You women kill me with this victim mentality. I see players, pimps, dope dealers, gang bangers coming a mile away. Why can’t you all. We all make choices. Now she has to deal with her choice.

    Who cares? As Terrence Howard told Taye Diggs on Best Man Holiday “It’s just your turn now”. I don’t think he can find a handful of people to be sympathetic on his behalf.

    Wake-up ladies… This whole ordeal is about “Strategy”… Phrases is under the counseling of her attorney-is…. Her and Apollo must play this scene out til the end, if not for anything else their children.
    Many would say the Whiteman gets away with BS like this everyday, but its time for black folks to open their eyes and start understanding that we all are the true chosen-generation by our God, so just because the whiteman do evil doesn’t mean our creator is going to excuse us or give us a pass to be “CORRUPT” like the evil white-devils. Gods chosen people have “LAWS” that all fall under “GOD’S Ten Commandments” created and set forth according to the blackmans creation to keep us balanced in nature for the work of God’s “Purpose and Plans for man.

    We “GOD’S Chosen People” are the (WHEAT) that lives amongst the (TARE) for the purpose of saving the souls of man kind. So blackman stop twisting up God’s business…

    To Dr Boyce…

    God told me to tell you: How “Dare” you think you can fix and clean-up the black communities as if you are more powerful then HE. I am a jealous God, thou shall not have any other God before me.

    Heed ! Heed ! Heed ! to the message! I am just the messenger that’s all…

    You go brother!!! Tell it like it really is. Phedra aka: (Mrs Crook In The Neck) ain’t nobody’s d@mn victim.

    Do not be “Joined to a Harlow” (man or woman), for you become (ONE-SPIRIT intertwined) with them / the right-hand always knows what the left-hand is doing rather they adhere to it or not. Phedra didn’t spend all those years in college to step-out playing the roll of a strong blackwomen clueless dummy!!!! It’s just time for her to roll like a smart dummy…wink!

    I’m sorry Apollo…but the judge broke y’all up! LOL I can’t really feel sorry for a man who ruined all of his relationships over money! He had a stable life with wife and kids included and he threw it all away. He has no one to blame but himself!!!

    Apollo was not played. Sorry, but other than what some consider good looks, I always questioned why Phaedra was with him to begin with. Apollo brought nothing (imho) to the table.

    And, while I agree that Phaedra is in no way a victim, would Apollo be “ride or die” if Phaedra was the one going back to prison for committing the same types of crimes that put them in prison the first time? I doubt it.

    Divorce papers should be waiting at whichever prison Apollo will ultimately be transported to. Vows or no vows, Apollo cannot expect this degree of loyalty from the woman that he so blatantly disrespected on national TV even after she told him how his behavior made *her* feel. And now, he expects her to stand by him through yet another prison stint? Go on, Apollo and do your time. Allow Phaedra and your sons to go on and have a good life without you.

    She benefited financially from the scams that Apollo was doing, so why turn her back on him when the shit hits the fan? At the very least she could have supported him during the sentencing and put in her divorce after he was jailed. I mean he still is the father of her kids. Just like you cant turn a hoe into.a housewife, you can expect a convicted felon to live on the straight and narrow.

    Phaedra “loved” her husband. Now she has to support her boys with the dad in prison. He deserves prison. She should move on.

    She probably figured out that he was a down low brotha….why else will he continue to keep going to prison?

    There were a lot of mistakes made 1) when Apollo paroled he should have done him and him only 2) Apollo didn’t have a plan of his own which is very important when you parole from prison 3) Apollo would have benefited from counseling targeting his behavior. I can speak on the behavior of a Forger because I was one I did Federal time twice in the 80’s and the 90’s stemming from “white collar crime” the crime didn’t stop until – asked for counseling targeting my behavior. Once my Psychologist and I got to the “root” I was able to identify my triggers. I now have my own legal business, I graduated class of 2014 @ San Francisco State University and will be going into the Masters Program @ SFSU (Equity and Social Justice in Education. In order for the formerly incarcerated to succeed “a plan is imperative”. Phaedra made it to easy for him. You don’t have to be on the DL to go to prison I’ve done time and never participated in a same sex relationship

    A person past should not prevent them from a positive present and future. Phaedra’s ability to forgive and show compassion to Apollo; providing him with a fresh start is something this society needs to embrace. Apollo blew it. He choose not to change his criminal ways. He couldn’t handle success.

    Man, you ppl are tripping. No way in he’ll she didn’t know what he was doing! 2 million + isn’t chump change & he said he did it to make them “appear” wealthy. Lets guess where that pressure came from? She used his Ass & that’s the bottom line. Maybe he’s taking the sentence to protect her and just like a “Business”, she’s trying to protect her assets now that she no doubt benefited from his activity. Open your eyes & see thru the smokescreen! She’s definitely NOT a Damn victim!

    Phaedra Parks is not a stupid woman—-she surely was not fooled by Apollo —her own agenda came first and we can only guess what that was–with a competitive nature like hers—–she probably went for broke, while he was most likely rolling with her punches and working his own agenda—they both got stuck in the game!…..Peace!!!!

    Please everyone remember when Phaedra came up with going into the funeral business, she wanted Apollo to head up a certain section of the business. He declined stating that it wasn’t for him. He could have reinvented his life in an almost certain, lucrative way. He angrily declined… He thought it was best to stay in the business of asset recovery. Apollo made his own bed… Saying stupid things on TV about the amounts he drops in Strip Clubs. Flirting and openly disrespecting his wife… Now she has to raise and educate those boys by herself. A damn shame! Apollo is a freekin train wreck!

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody that genuinely knows what
    they’re discussing on the internet. You certainly understand how
    to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people have to check this out and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you certainly possess the gift.

    Naturally Moi. I was moved enough to post a thought 😉 I actually do have some questions for you if you don’t mind.
    Is it simply me or does it look like some of the comments come
    across like they are left by brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting at additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you
    have to post. Would you list all of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page
    or linkedin profile?

    If you have been following this you know that I posted, when this first hit the air that Pheadra had hired Jim Webb, a one time associate of both Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and President Nelson Mandela. I told you then that he would get her off completely and distance her from Apollo. If I had a legal problem and could afford his fees I would not hesitate to hire him. If you think Willie Gray of Florida is a baad brother in the Courts, you should witness Jim Webb’s skills. We here in South Africa know what he is capable of.
