Phaedra Parks of Real Housewives of Atlanta fame, visited Ellen’s show yesterday to discuss her impending divorce from her husband Apollo Nida.

Check out what she had to say!

Phaedra denied any knowledge of her husband’s illegal activites in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that aired Wednesday.

“I work. I just got my fifth college degree,” Parks said. “And so I am pretty much an overachiever. I have two very small children. I just stopped breast feeding three months ago. I didn’t have any idea that any of this was going on until he called me and said, ‘Hey, I’ve been arrested and I’m having this problem, but it’s not true.’”
The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star — who is an attorney herself — added that she went out of her way to get the best lawyers and investigators to help Nida, 35.

He ultimately pleaded guilty to numerous federal fraud charges in May. In addition to serving eight years in prison, Nida was ordered to pay $1.9 million in restitution.

Parks confirmed she has retained a lawyer with the intent to end her five-year marriage. Parks’ interview with DeGeneres comes one day after she was ordered by a judge to open up about anything she knows about Nida’s illegal activity. The entertainment lawyer will sit down for a second deposition in her defamation lawsuit against author Angela Stanton, who claims Parks knows more about Nida’s activities than she admits.
