AceShowbiz - Will Phaedra Parks and ex-husband Apollo Nida rejoin "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"? A new report suggests that the producers of the Bravo reality TV series are in negotiations to bring the former cast members back for the next season.
According to MTO News, production sources reveal that they want Apollo to rejoin and film the new season as soon as he's released from prison. He is reportedly expected to be released this summer, which means he will be free a year early from federal prison.
It is also said that "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and Apollo have closed the deal already with him signing on to join the next season. The insider claims, "It's a done deal."
Now that Apollo is onboard, the producers want his estranged wife as well. However, they allegedly face difficulties in trying to get her sign on the deal. Phaedra has moved on, according to multiple sources close to the TV personality. Additionaly, the 45-year-old is said to be having "little interest in coming back to the 'Atlanta Housewives'."
Following Apollo's imprisonment for bank fraud, Phaedra appears to be in relationship with Tone Kapone, a DJ for WGCI Chicago. She hinted in an Instagram post that she's ready to spend 2019 with a new chapter alongside her new beau, captioning a photo of her and Tone with, "2019 we are ready (heart emoji)."
Further fueling rumors of them dating was her pal and former co-star NeNe Leakes. NeNe left a supportive message on the post. The reality TV star commented a group of heart-eyed smiley faces.
If the rumors are true, it will be Phaedra's relationship after her past marriage to Apollo. Phaedra announced her plans to divorce him, whom she married in 2009, in October 2014 shortly after he began his 8-year prison sentence for fraud and identity theft. The former couple shares two sons together, Ayden, 8, and Dylan, 5.
