Fans of the Bravo hit show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, might be seeing a little less of Phaedra Parks next season.
The self proclaimed “Southern Belle” has gone through a lot within the past few weeks, with her husband Apolla Nida being sentenced to eight years in prison. The sentence comes after he pleaded guilty to identity theft and bank fraud back in May.
A source close to E! News says that Phaedra is taking a few weeks off from filming Season 7 of the show, to focus on her family. The source also confirmed that within the past few months, the couple’s marriage has been on the rocks.
He has not been showing her the same respect, he’s been filming a lot. He’s been out and about and trying to be seen as much as possible before he goes to jail. Right now, he’s not exactly sure when that will be so he’s living it up while he can.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta began filming it’s seventh season earlier this summer with Phaedra, Kandi, NeNe, Kenya, Porsha and Cynthia all returning. Last season the show saw record ratings, making it one of the highest rated shows in Bravo’s history.
Season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is set to premiere in November!
