Phaedra Parks Splits from Apollo Nida

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star "has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage," her rep Steve Honig tells PEOPLE.
The news shouldn't come as a surprise to Nida, who told radio station Atlanta B100 in July that he doubted his marriage would survive his stint in jail.
"I mean, my wife didn't even f------g show up for my sentencing," he said, "so I'm still kind of salty about that."
Nida is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft in May.
The pair have two children together: Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 1.
