RHoA Season 7 Finale: Apollo Nida Calls Peter Thomas From Prison (VIDEO)
Earlier on this season of Real Housewives of Atlanta we watched as Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, reluctantly reported to prison to begin his eight-year sentence for bank fraud and identity theft after paying Phaedra a surprise visit at the home they once shared. We haven’t seen or heard from Apollo since he turned himself in, but that all changes in next week’s RHoA Season 7 finale when the father of two makes a reappearance of sorts.
In a sneak peek of the finale episode below Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas get a surprising call from an imprisoned Apollo. Apollo reveals that while he’s “holding up” he still hasn’t seen his children, Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 1.
“Apollo’s calling Peter from prison,” Cynthia explains to the Bravo cameras. “Although I feel bad for him because he’s been locked up for six weeks, last time Apollo’s name came up I ended up being in a big chocolate mess.” Cynthia is of course referring to the wine tasting during which she dropped the bomb that Apollo told Peter that Phaedra was cheating on him with a fella named Mr. Chocolate.
Later on in the phone call, Apollo tells Peter that his brother has visited several times but Phaedra has refused to let the boys see their dad with him. “You gotta keep strong, because when you come home they’re going to need their daddy,” Peter advises.
Meanwhile, the clip also shows Phaedra making cookies with her sons as she explains that letting the boys visit Apollo isn’t as easy as it sounds. “I am not sure when we will visit Apollo because Kentucky is not a hop, skip, and jump away from Atlanta, she tells the Bravo cameras. “These facilities have rules for children. I had to call the warden to see when an infant would even be welcomed into a prison. It’s not like I can just go.”
Do you think Phaedra should make more of an effort to let Apollo see his children? Check out the complete sneak peek clip below and weigh in!
