But Parks unfortunately isn’t singing the same tune. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the RHOA star confirmed she is filing for divorce from Nida. And her rep told on Wednesday that her hubby’s reconciliation talk is nonsense.

Steve Honig, Parks rep, said “there have been absolutely no discussions about reconciling,” and their divorce “is proceeding as planned.”

Speaking on the couple’s split to Ellen DeGeneres, Parks said she was most concerned about the effect it would have on her and Nida’s sons Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 18 months.

“It is extremely hard. My heart aches for my two sons because they are the heart and soul of who I am. That’s the best thing we ever did together,” Parks said. “We have these great kids. I never wanted to do anything to diminish his character in public. But we’ve had some times where he’s done things that weren’t so cool… weren’t so nice.”
