The pair’s relationship was so strained that Parks chose not to attend Nida’s sentencing in July. In the clip from the Season 7 premiere episode, Parks says she wanted to protect the couple’s children from the paparazzi and craziness of that day.

“It’s the morning of Apollo’s sentencing, and I’ve decided not to be at our house because of the paparazzi and people trying to snap pictures of my children,” Parks said. “As a mother, the biggest concern for me is to protect my children during this whole tumultuous time.”

But Nida expressed his frustration with his wife’s lack of support, saying that his mistake shouldn’t have led her to abandon him.

“I understand what I’ve done is illegal. It’s wrong. But it’s fixable. The charges the I plead to were wire fraud, bank fraud and mail fraud. I got caught because a co-conspirator got into a bind and decided to bring me in,” Apollo said in a confessional shortly before his sentencing.

Chatting with her mother, Parks said that she did speak to Nida on the day of his sentencing. And he was upset with her for taking their children to a hotel. But she admitted that she wasn’t concerned because she felt their presence at the sentencing wouldn’t make any difference.

She added that her husband’s actions were the “ultimate betrayal” and she was fooled into believing he was a “changed man.”

In the trailer for the new season, Nida accused his wife of cheating on him with a man named Chocolate. Her RHOA castmate Cynthia Bailey hinted in an Instagram post that Parks may have actually stepped out of her marriage. But Parks has since denied those claims on The Ellen DeGeneres show and through a statement released by her rep.
