Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks is a undoubtedly a Southern belle — and she will tell you so! — but it’s easy to forget that she’s also a modern career gal. The lawyer-undertaker is a little more forward-thinking than some of her more traditional peers. For one, she married Apollo Nida, an ex-con who is far from the uppity gentleman one might expect. Oh, and he’s a younger man!

That’s right, our PhaePhae is a cougar, and boy does she own it. Not only did she tie her hunky (though legally troubled) man down, she also created some impossibly adorable babies with the guy. It must be noted, however, that Ms. Parks is far from over-the-hill — just a bit older than her hubby.

So during last night’s April 20 “Reunion, Part 1” ep of RHoA, Wetpaint Entertainment partnered with Viggle LIVE! to quiz users and see if they knew how much older Phaedra is than her baby daddy. Looks like you’ve all been keeping track, as the majority (46 percent) knew that the Housewife is five years senior to her man. Not far behind, 34 percent guessed it was a seven year age gap, while 20 percent went for the whopping nine year difference.

So yes, Phaedra is a cougar — though just barely! She was born in 1973, while Apollo entered the world in 1978. Still, these two have been together for a while now, so it’s pretty impressive that a woman in her 30s nabbed a guy in his 20s. Get it, girl! Now hopefully she can impose some of that hard-earned wisdom onto
her struggling hubby...

Tune in for part two of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion on Sunday, April 27, at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
