Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida have been divorced since 2017. But the two reunited Sunday on the Married to Medicine season 10 reunion, to explain the current nature of their relationship.

Parks, an attorney, reality star, and holistic healer, said she invited Apollo on the show (for ratings?) because her fellow castmates had been asking questions.

“The girls have wondered what our relationship was like. When you ask about him, I will make him appear,” Phaedra said.

She added that Toya Bush-Harris had told jokes about Apollo not being present at some events with his children.

Toya responded to Phaedra’s criticism.

“I didn’t joke, I didn’t laugh. But my issue was really if I asked a question, like when we were at the spa, you immediately took offense,” Toya said calmly. “I’m not coming for you, I really was just trying to get to know you.”

After that was settled, Apollo chimed in and said his relationship with Phaedra is currently “impeccable.”

“It started out topsy turvy, when I first came home. I was upset, she was upset,” he explained.

Apollo is now remarried and said his new wife has no problem with him being friendly with Phaedra and appearing on the show.

“She’s fine with it, she’s cool,” he said. “I’m kind of trying to blend, it takes time.”

When pressed, Phaedra admitted she has no relationship with Apollo’s new wife and said she doesn’t want one.

Host Andy Cohen then asked Apollo how long he was “in the joint.”

“Like five and a half years,” he responded.

Apollo was introduced to Bravo viewers on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

He was convicted of identity theft,  conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud, and was released from federal prison in 2019.

Apollo told Andy he did time at the same prison as former Real Housewives of New Jersey personality Joe Giudice, who pleaded guilty to conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud charges, along with his reality star ex-wife, Teresa Giudice. Joe was sentenced to 41 months and later deported. Teresa received a 15-month sentence.

“I saw him, but then I got taken to the SHU (Special Housing Unit)… then I was taken from the side that he was at,” Apollo said about Joe.

Apollo declined to say why he spent nearly 100 days in solitary confinement. But he did say the first time he saw Joe behind bars, they had a good laugh.
