RHOA star Apollo Nida has been in prison for two months and is speaking out about his life behind bars, how he betrayed his family and what the future holds for his marriage.
“I’m not the best husbandâ€¦ I know I let a lot of people down,” he tells In Touch. “But I can say that Phaedra is the best wife and mom and that my children are in good hands with her.”
“I’m hopeful that we can stick things out,” Apollo says. Phaedra, however, may have a different idea: her rep tells the magazine that “the divorce is proceeding as planned.”
Nida explains that he is focused on rehabilitating himself at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky, where he is serving his 8-year sentence.
“There are all walks of life here,” he says. “I keep to myself.” But he hopes the time will do him some good. “When I get out, it’s pedal to the metal. I want to be a motivational speaker and stay on the right side of the law.”
Apollo also shares that he has hopes of repairing his relationship with his sons Ayden and Dylan.
“There’s a plan to get them up here [to visit me],” he says. “At this point, I don’t care about anything else except getting my life back on track. I know for a fact that when I get home, I will pick up the pieces.”
