Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida has finally come out clean about his alleged affair with "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Kenya Moore.
The two grabbed headlines in 2012 when it was revealed that they have been sexting each other. Although both of them denied any wrongdoing at the time, Nida last week revealed the truth about the texting scandal, and everything was caught on tape.
Nida, who is sentenced to eight years in prison for laundering $2.3 million, told Moore last week that he texted her with the intention of sleeping with her, and the entire scene was filmed at Peter Bailey's Bar One restaurant, reported Media Take Out.
Interestingly, has always denied that there was anything more to her relationship than platonic friendship. But Parks has always stood by her belief that the two had an intimate relationship when they were both in Los Angeles.
Nida admitted to lying to save face with his wife, and he even apologized to Moore saying that he wanted to make amends before going to jail. The duo even exchanged a hug and a kiss after Nida's confession, reported Media Take Out.
The Media Takeout report added that Parks found out about the Moore-Nida meeting, and she is furious with her husband for lying about his intention behind texting Moore. The reality show star has also decided to take a "leave of absence" from the show due to embarrassment, the report said.
The Nida-Parks marriage is as good as over now that he is gearing up to serve his eight years sentence. Nida has even spoken about it on multiple occasions.
During an interview with Be100 Radio, when the host asked if his marriage to Parks would sustain the eight year separation, Nida answered that he is doubtful, as his wife didn't even attend his sentencing.
"I doubt it. I mean my wife didn't even show up for my f**kin' sentencing so you know I'm still kind of- I'm still salty about that," he said, according to Mstarz.
Similarly, in May he told Atlanta radio station V-103 that he does not expect Parks to wait up for him.
"I think Phaedra, in a perfect world, should be supportive as a wife should be... But if she chooses to derail from the plan, then that's what she chooses to do," he said.
"Whatever's been thrown at me, I deal with it. I would like to say I would want her to stay around and do what a wife should do. But tomorrow's not promised."
