Three years after her estranged husband's suicide, Taylor Armstrong is remarried and ready to return as a guest star on Real Housewives – though the tragedy still lingers over her and her daughter.

"I don't know if you ever move on from suicide," Armstrong, 43, tells PEOPLE while attending the Marjaree Mason Center's 31st Annual Top Ten Professional Women and Top Business Awards Luncheon as a keynote speaker. "It's something that I'll always have questions about, but for my daughter's sake, I can't dwell on the past. I have to look to the future, and I do bring up her father. We work with a child psychologist ... It's not as though we just pretended someone disappeared in her life."

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks's impending divorce is far from the happy ending she was hoping for.

"Phaedra is really disappointed with how all of this has turned out," a source close to Parks tells PEOPLE.

Her estranged husband, Apollo Nida, is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence on multiple fraud charges.

Despite Nida's previous run-ins with the law, including a stint in prison prior to their 2009 wedding, the source says, "I don't think [Phaedra] had any idea that [illegal activity] was going on."

Moving forward, "this divorce is going to be the best thing for her," says the source. "Apollo was always really jealous of her success and the fact that she was the breadwinner."

Teresa Giudice Didn't Understand Anything About Finances, Says Former Attorney

While Teresa Giudice may have pleaded guilty to bank and wire fraud charges in connection to a long-running financial conspiracy with husband Joe Giudice, her former attorney Jim Kridel – who represented the couple back in 2010 in their original bankruptcy case – says it's possible she may have committed the crimes unknowingly.

"I did not believe that Teresa was all that knowledgeable about any of the finances of her family until ultimately she became the breadwinner," Kridel tells PEOPLE.

"Everyone seems to blame her that she knew or should have known. I don't find that to be true in real life, though," he says. "People come in and sign tax returns quite often, and the spouse who is not in charge of the finances has no information. They just do what the accountant tells them."
