During this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida sat down with his two sons Ayden and Dylan to talk about his looming prison sentence. Nida is currently serving an 8-year jail sentence in a Kentucky penitentiary for bank fraud and identity theft.
Ayden tells Apollo that he feels “bad” about his father going away because he wants Apollo “to come back right now.” Ayden, who is four, tells his dad that he will “come to visit” and that he will “stay there forever” with him.
“I’ve been trying to adjust to the reality that I might not be able to see my children,” Nida says. “And it’s a difficult pill to swallow. It’s almost like I feel helpless. It’s almost like I’m in prison, but I’m not in prison.”
Nina tells his son, “I want you to know that I love you and I will always be here for you okay? I’ll be here for you and Dylan.”
“To Ayden and Dylan, I’m sorry this happened,” Apollo says in his interview. “I’m sorry that I’ve put myself in a position to be taken away from you, but it’s not forever. I’ll be home soon and hopefully you can come see me.”
