Do You Believe Them: Phaedra Parks & Her Mother Try HARD To Convince Viewers Apollo Nida Wants To Burn The House Down!

Posted on Feb 1 2015 - 11:53am by BeachSpin

Apollo Phaedra  her mom

Phaedra Parks has seemingly been selling the viewers of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” a sketchy bill of goods this season. The show has been following she and her husband, Apollo Nida, during his last weeks of freedom, before surrendering to an eight year prison sentence. During an episode set to air next week, Parks kicks her victim act into high gear, expecting the viewers swallow a load southern drawled nonsense, when she accuses Apollo of threatening to burn down their house. Her mother, playing in a supporting role,  dramatically labels Apollo as being a threat to the whole family. Apollo has supposedly been “punching through walls,” “definitely unraveling”, “acting erratic and crazy”, “making’ all kinds of threats”, and “psychotic almost.” Lots of head shakes, mmm hmmms, tearless eye dabbing, and  overacted, sorrowful expressions of concern pepper a scene that I classify as COMPLETE BS.

 

I suppose there is always the possibility that Apollo is two different people, one on camera and one off. However, given his obviously simple brain power, I doubt it. There has been one previously aired scene, where he appeared genuinely worked up in frustration with Phaedra, but that has been the extent of any on-camera intensity with this supposed raging, psycho arsonist. On the contrary, I believe that Apollo has appeared as a cool, collected repeat offender, who has been trying to prepare himself to face the latest round of incarcerated music.

In my opinion, PHAEDRA has been the one who has come across on camera as presumably shady, fake, and lying. Her whole persona has shifted from a career superwoman, passionately pursuing a new calling as a mortician, to a single focused nurturer, whose every waking moment revolves around her two soon to be fatherless boys. There has been NO mention of her hard chased passion for putting on snazzy funerals, and very little career jabber in general, when boastful professional accomplishments have defined Parks in the past. Now she is just a humble mommy, nobly battling the dilemma of how to handle explaining to her two young’uns that their daddy is in the clink. Her new single parenthood really shouldn’t come as a big shock, considering her first son was conceived on an air mattress while his dear old dad was still wearing an ankle bracelet from a previous whoopsie with the law.

Phaedra carefully comments in the clip that she is unjustly being treated as a scape-goat, because “there is no one else left, besides himself, for him to blame.” There is simply no on-camera proof of this attitude, in fact, there has been just the opposite. Apollo has remarked several times that he alone is responsible for his predicament. His comments have reflected that over and over.

“I basically controlled shell corporations and I got caught because a co-conspirator got into a bind and decided to bring me in.”
“I understand what I have done is illegal and wrong, but it is fixable,”
“I have accepted responsibility for what I have done and the judge is going to give me time.”
“My addiction to the fast life and fast money could potentially cause me not to be there for my kids.”

Phaedra also complains of “wild man” Apollo unfairly accusing her of having an affair. Reality history reveals that Apollo was not the only one. Cast mate, Kenya Moore, spoke to Hollywood Life a little over a  year ago, asserting that an affair with an alleged ‘Mr. Chocolate’ was indeed going on, well before Apollo left for prison.

“I can tell you this,” Kenya teases. “Mr. Chocolate does exist! And I think that is definitely one of the best kept secrets of this season.  From all indications of what we’ve seen, he definitely exists and he’s definitely involved with Phaedra. Or was at the time.”

Maybe this explains the vamped up, surgically enhanced version of a  southern belle poser that has graced our screens all season. Perhaps Apollo himself was wondering what the heck happened to his career minded, go getter of a wife, and where on earth  this ponytail flipping, eyelash batting, Barbie wannabe came from.

Apollo is a career criminal, currently paying the price in the slammer. However, a potential arsonist, family slaughtering psycho? I don’t think so. In fact, I believe that Apollo has honestly portrayed himself on the show this season. Phaedra, not so much…the real Phaedra Parks has yet to be fully revealed…so stay tuned.

    I wil take Phaedra’s word over Apollo’s anytime and anywhere – 24/7.
    And when someone calls in Kenya to verify a truth – all that happens is
    non-stop belly aching laughter. I mean ……..really? Kenya!!!!!
    LOL

    Did Apollo threaten to burn down the house? Sure he could have said it
    given he was about to face the reality of just how much he was about to lose
    due to his crimes. Apollo was given an opportunity few former inmates
    ever get – a NEW life with a loving family, nice house, friends and a future.
    HE BLEW IT ALL!!!!

    How many times have we read about individuals becoming wacko
    and dangerous to their families, friends or co-workers
    because of their personal failures?
    Thankfully Apollo never took things that far and give Phaedra a break
    while she is raising their two sons.

    • Birdie

      Nowhere does it say that Kenya verified truth…it says that Kenya verified a rumor and it shows that Apollo wasn’t pulling it out of thin air like Phaedra implied.

      • MidwestMiddie

        Perhaps I should have said, “Anyone willing to take Kenya’s word
        on most anything is courting belly aching laughter.”

        According to Kenya’s “Hollywood Life’ interview, she claims Phaedra did
        have an affair with “Mr. Chocolate” but she never talked to Apollo about it.

        “I never had a conversation with Apollo about Phaedra’s alleged affair so I
        can’t speak to what Apollo does know, I CAN ONLY SPEAK TO WHAT I HAVE
        SEEN……..”
        “Kenya insists that he, “Mr. Chocolate” has been involved with Ms. Parks.”

        • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

          The Porn Lawyer (TPL) should get a DNA test for paternity on her second child with a stupid nickname, to put that matter to rest.

          • MidwestMiddie

            You and others don’t believe Apollo is Dylan’s father?
            LOL – why?
            IMO – nonsense.
            I do agree with you about Dylan’s nickname.
            “Mr. President” is awful and no child should be burdened with it.
            I, also, thought the same thing about Ayden’s
            nickname, “Prince Ayden.” Ugh!!!!!!!

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Yeah those nick names are just so ridiculous.
            In looking at pics of those boys they really do look very different of each other. Now in my family there are definite similarities between the six of us. So you can tell that we are related with and to the same Mom and Dad. That’s what I’m basing my questioning of paternity on.
            But as I see it, everybody’s opinion is valid, regardless of whether I agree with it or not.
            So there you go.
            It’s all good…we agree on some stuff and don’t on others…no biggee.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Genetics – it is not at all uncommon for siblings with
            the same parents to not resemble each other.
            I have a sister many, many years younger who looks like my identical twin and a brother who looks nothing like any of us kids/parents. ……..much to our surprise he does resemble an uncle from several generations ago …. no living relative ever met or knew this man. Love Family Albums!!
            Also, consider how facial features change in children as their grow.
            I think Dylan and Ayden look like brothers.

            Aren’t infants/toddlers/ children off-limits, especiallywhen they have
            done nothing to become fodder for blogs?
            Gia Giudice has exposed herself to the public through her videos,
            professional photo shoots and media interviews so she
            should expect praise and/or criticism. That’s show biz ……..

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      Men, most times, are very simple creatures when it comes to the women they love (if they aren’t psycho). They want to be fed, they want sex and often with their chosen one and they would like a sense of humor, the remote and not be bugged when they go to sleep after sex. Honesty would be very nice, but if the other stuff is in place they will put up with some of the BS lies. But not usually infidelity by their woman.
      Now it’s looking like The Porn Lawyer cashed out on all of the above. AND she’s leveraged her kids in the process too. She bait and switched him and keeps capitalizing on her manipulations.
      He isn’t a real smart man, that’s obvious. AND he also seems to have the scruples of a Bonobo Monkey… but she banked on that as a means to paint herself as so pristine.
      Now she’s spewing loads of crap and she doesn’t expect it to piss him off?!?~~~~~ REALLY! P.O.’d men are known to bluster. Do you really want to paste him to the wall for being that P.O.’d when she spitefully engineered it?

  • Birdie

    Apollo may have mouthed off about burning the house down to collect insurance money…but I don’t believe for a second that his intention was to ever follow through or be any sort of threat. Phaedra is manipulative and full of it, and thinks that the Bravo viewers are as stupid as her criminal husband.

  • Excellent analysis, Beach! I agree with all you stated 100%. Phaedra is a crook, that’s been proven. All the lies she told in her Angela Stanton deposition will be the nail in her coffin. Her time is coming.

  • Kyle McKeown

    “cool and collected”? What color is the sky in your world? Apollo has lost his temper numerous times on the show, talked to Phaedra like she’s nothing less than dog poop on his shoe and went out of his way to LIE about Kenya coming on to him just to tick Phaedra off. He is a mean-spirited, lazy convicted criminal.

    • Marsbars09

      Apollo certainly has his faults but Fake is using it to her advantage. Fake is just as lowlife and conniving as Apollo.

    • Yolie

      You need to read the Angela Stanton book and Phaedra’s recent deposition. She’s the mastermind behind Apollo’s crimes.

    • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

      And Phaedra IS dog Poop…no shoe necessary.
      And dear (noh noh noh) Apollo/DuhPollo is in prison…probably at the engineering of his beloved (uh…nawt) wife.
      Such a lovely couple.

  • Marsbars09

    Beach, thanks for calling Fake for what she really is-fake!
    I laughed at the part where Fake said Apollo was punching holes in walls.
    I do not believe Fake is any sort of victim. She’s playing this single mother, hubby going to prison sympathy card to the hilt!
    And you know Fake’s mama entering the kitchen asking what’s going on is totally scripted. I was like girl pahleeze!

    • BeachSpin

      It was my pleasure Mars, I totally enjoyed it lol. Puh-leeeze is right…her mother never calls her out, just nods and agrees. That whole scene was such contrived nonsense.

  • ChristianMotherofAte

    Paging Angela Stanton! Please report to the RHOA Reunion!

    • Birdie

      YES!! She needs to be heard loud and clear!

    • Yolie

      Amen! You took the words out of my mouth. I wish Bravo would have focused on Angela Stanton this season. Pheadra worked hard to give them an alternate storyline.

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        Angela made very sound, plausible and substantiated arguments.
        The Porn Lawyer (TPL) just tried to dance and prance away from answering the depositions that were ordered by the court by delaying for far too long and with flimsy excuses.
        PP aka TPL is a mouthy and egomaniacal jerk. I sure hope that the fed’s catch up with her sometime in the future and toss her rear tumbling right into prison.

    • MidwestMiddie

      And say what?
      The Feds have heard Angela’s blather and discounted it.

      • Hi MidwestMiddle. Is there proof of that because that’s not what I’m hearing. Just sayin’.

        • MidwestMiddie

          Hey!!!! : )
          What have you heard?
          I’m assuming Angela Stanton was interviewed by the Feds at some point. Also, I assume Phaedra was investigated and the Feds didn’t find any criminal activity.
          Phaedra has or had a lawsuit against the publisher of Angela’s book.
          Some, Angela included, have hounded Phaedra for not suing Angela……..LOL!!
          What could Angela possibly pay if and when Phaedra’s case is heard and won? Not much ……….
          The publisher has the deep pockets!!
          Angela, also, complains that Phaedra is ruining her royalty checks from coming in…….. EyeRoll!!
          Most authors are not wealthy. As a newbie author Angela may have
          received anywhere from a $1,000 to a $10,000 advance. What that means is she would need to earn that much in royalties from her book sales before earning any more money. If her book doesn’t sell well, the publisher may be able to demand she return the advance to them.

          I think Angela’s 15 minutes of Infamy isn’t great and will be
          totally forgotten in, 10-9-8-7-6-5………………

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            Hi MidWest,
            Have you read any of Angela’s books?

          • MidwestMiddie

            I’ve read several excerpts but not an entire book.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            If you choose to, the book that speaks of some of her dealings with Phaedra is a very quick read. But I should warn you, that you may not want to put it down.
            Her other book is also a good read and it is about her interviews with many of the female inmates that she shared time with.
            They both are very plausible, and if you search information that she presented in the books, the information she shared plays out as right on target.

          • Hi dear 🙂

            Phaedra was caught in numerous lies throughout the Angela Stanton deposition. This site covered it. Read the following links:

            http://allaboutthetea.com/2014/10/13/update-phaedra-parks-ordered-to-give-a-new-deposition-in-lawsuit-against-angela-stanton/

            http://allaboutthetea.com/2014/08/11/exclusive-phaedra-parks-deposition-part-1/

          • MidwestMiddie

            Well ……. a good lawyer would have counseled Phaedra
            to respectfully not answer any question if Apollo is
            part of the question. From what I’ve read she did the prudent thing
            during the 5 hour deposition.

          • Phaedra was caught in numerous lies during that 5 hour deposition. Also, why would Phaedra not answer questions involving Apollo when she’s the one that brought the lawsuit against Angela and by answering the questions she could potentially prove her case?

          • MidwestMiddie

            IMO – a better question is where is Angela ‘s proof against Phaedra?
            The woman talks but that is all she does. I’d ignore her too.
            Angela probably wanted to appear on the RHOA and Bravo
            wants nothing to do with her. More than likely she thought if
            Bravo is willing to be a pal of the Giudice Felons, why not me?

            Guess Bravo still has a little class left ………….though not much.
            lol

          • Oh you really haven’t kept up with this case. Angela has presented tons of proof. Angela’s lawyer also deposed many witnesses that corroborated her version. It’s all in the deposition.

          • MidwestMiddie

            Sooooo Angela has introduced credible witnesses and so
            much proof against Phaedra that the Feds will be walking
            up to Phaedra’s front door any day now……….right?

            We’re going to have to disagree and leave it at that.
            : )

          • You are co-mingling different issues. I am referring to the lawsuit Phaedra brought against Angela Stanton where Angela exposes Phaedra’s criminal past. That’s a CIVIL case. Now if the feds plan to investigate and bring a case against Phaedra that’s an entirely different scenario. Angela did say the secret service contacted her regarding Phaedra. Will they move on a case?…that’s remains to be seen. Personally, I’ve always felt Phaedra was a government informant for the feds *Allegedly*

          • MidwestMiddie

            I’m not co-mingling anything.
            IF Angela was a credible person with credible witnesses
            and actual proof against Phaedra, the Feds would have taken
            notice.
            Angela has zip-nada-zero-zilch ………….

            And, imo, just because Angela said the Secret Service visited
            her well – LOL – why would the Secret Service have done
            such a thing? Their job is to protect the President of
            the United States of America. and foreign dignitaries.
            While the Agency does occasionally investigate some financial crimes, I doubt Apollo’s crimes reached the necessary level to
            have involved them.

            I’ve enjoyed reading your comments and opinions
            BUT we are “football fields” apart from each other.
            Let’s leave it at that ……….. time to get back
            to the Celebration!!!
            CHEERS PATRIOTS!!!

          • Ummmm….yeah Oo K.

          • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

            I hear that.

  • Marsbars09

    O/T: Prayers to Bobbi Kristina Brown. I’m sure you all know that she is currently in a coma due to passing out in a tub full of water. It’s reported that her situation is bleak.
    I think Bobbi has been in deep grief since the passing of her mother. It appears she’s been doing any and everything to numb the pain. I also find it interesting that this crisis happened a couple of weeks after the premiere of the Lifetime movie about her mother’s life.

  • cait

    She was with him before he went to prison, last time ! Hmmm ! She got with him again, when he came out, sequestered his sperm and controlled the hell out of him ! And now he’s off to jail again ! Hmmm !
    This BS is to make folk think Apollo was controlling HER ! She got him to take TOTAL blame in court, then started planning to get rid of him !
    Faekera, who’s LIPS are as big as her ASS, was clearly talking out of one of them !

    • Marsbars09

      Great one Cait!

    • Hi Cait. Thank you for stating intelligent points and thinking outside the box.

  • cait

    Just watching Ser.3 when Faekra is pregnant. They meet with marriage mentors. The guy asks ” What is your language of love ?” Apollo says it’s spending quality time together, and she almost snorted ! He said that he’d been away a long time and appreciated time together, and she almost snorted ! Her answer was “I like gifts !” He replied that he’d seen a great pair of shoes costing $3,900 but then thought that the money would be better spent on the new baby. The mentor said “You could give her a rose” and she almost snorted, telling him “If you want to buy me a bag or shoes, just call my assistants and they’ll tell you what to get !” She was already pushing him away ‘cos her “bun” was already cooking in her trash-can ! Poor little boys !

  • cait

    Just watching Nose-Nose having her boobs de-Africanised and wonder ? Was the divorce faked, or was it the re-marriage that was faked ? Just wondering !

            We can all disagree without falling out, MM, so I’m sorry ! I can’t stand Faekra , whom I think has collaborated in sending her man to the Penitentiary for the second time ! We all know that Apollo hasn’t got the ounce to buy a MickeyMac Happy Meal on his own, let alone mastermind an elaborate scam !

    This was good!!

  • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

    I don’t put any kind of credence in what Phaedra says about anything or anyone, period.
    I don’t like her about as much as I don’t like Nene.

    Now based on that opinion, I actually would like to posit that indeed Phaedra the fraud engineered a lot of the mess that Apollo is in prison for at this time. And that’s based on that tart chasing down Apollo like nobody’s business when he had just been released from his previous prison stint. And she did it to the point of (this “self indulgent Attorney/Lawyer having such a high and mighty ego” about herself) laying it all out to Apollo when he was sleeping on an air-mattress as a bed, as often as possible. Now that was just so “southern belle” of her to devolve herself low enough to get herself impregnated because she wanted his “chile” so badly.

    That wasn’t a bad idea…it was a plan with a future illicit expectation for that ex-con.

    She’s as low as an ants knee any and every day of the week! And lucky for her, she’s getting support from her other cronies, Nene and Porsha (who are such Einsteins of rare notability).

      THANK YOU! You have me laughing so hard my stomach and ribs hurt!

      • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

        And I thank YOU for replying.
        I am continually amazed at what seems like numbers of nimrods that Bravo recruits to be on these mind-numbing shows. Then, there are the other multitudes of unfortunate people who obviously have no capability to string more than ten words together that actually sound like they went to school beyond, what, the 10th grade.
        And for those of us who favored getting a higher education, get pasted to the inner curves of their skulls in order to fill up some of the swissing of their brain matter. I guess we should continue to offer opposing points of view to “them” in order to stimulate the development of THINKING patterns, for their overall benefit of creative writing opportunities.

        I’m just another bozo on this bus…but it just gets so old ever so often.

        Oh w-hell….

        • GetReal2014

          You are spot on. I can’t even imagine the universe that these dolts inhabit. There is no way in h*ll that I can ever see myself batting for the trio of bullies, whores, criminals, and head doctors. it just doesn’t make sense.

  • beckywebb

    Phaedra acting scared, or cowering, around Apollo is laughable. She wants to, I don’t know why she’s doing this, he’s already being put away. Looks like her mom is a liar too, and that’s horrible for the kids. Where are the receipts, phaedra/whoremaster.

  • TGIP>>Now That’s Mister Darcy

    You know…I didn’t want to add Kandi in as the fourth with the triumvirate of mouthy tongue waggers but she’s right in there isn’t she. So I suppose it’s actually a quartet of ragging ratbags.
    But I suppose the WigMoose Herself doesn’t stink up even the big girls toidy locker. That’s ‘cuz she’s the head stain on the sidewalk…or so Herself thinks! But she better watch out BECUZ her schvonce is startin’ to shrink…or maybe she should just give one back to Greg.

    • equinox2009

      I personally think Kandi is a pussy, she straddles the fence and plays both sides! I am disappointed watching her just sit there and laugh when The Moose was talking crap about Claudia, Cynthia and Kenya after they left the table. Also her marriage issues over her mother are ridiculous, her mother will step all over Kandi as she has and treats Todd like crap, only a matter of time before he leaves because of her. Joyce treated his mother so badly, wouldn’t be surprise if she caused his mother’s stroke!

  • Rochelle Barozzi

    I agree. Their acting is not good enough to even invoke sympathy. They act like they are not even upset or scared. Just slowly speaking their memorized lines. Sloooooowwwwwwwllllyyyyyy. LOL

  • nn

    Sorry, I don’t buy it. Despite his criminal past, he is not violent and he just doesn’t strike me as the sort who will do that nonsense.

  • Kathie Stephenson

    I don’t believe the b.s. about Apollo either. She sounds as if she expects us to believe he’s psychotic. He certainly seems calm. She should know that Jesus fixes things for all who ask, but doesn’t like lying. Take heed to yourself Phaedra, you aren’t fooling anyone. Certainly not Jesus.

    • GetReal2014

      Not at all. Phaedra is the psychopath and she needs to keep Jesus out of her filthy mouth.

  • Erika D.

    Well, after this week’s episode, do you believe them now? This is why so many women and children end up dead at the hand of narcissistic men whose lives are unravelling, because of people like you, and some of the commenters here, who look to blame the victims. It’s really sad.

  • GetReal2014

    It’s amazing how people can’t see through the BS that Phaedra’s always selling. She’s as dirty as they come. Apollo is what he portrays, but Phaedra? That bish just spins lie after lie, all the time. Whenever she talks a lie fall outs. She can’t help it. That’s her nature.
