Phaedra and Apollo Nida’s interactions during the Real Housewives of Atlanta’s nightclub episode was difficult to watch tonight. According to US Magazine, RHOA viewers tuned in eagerly awaiting the scene where Apollo enters the night club and approaches Phaedra.
When Nida walked in, Phaedra looked as if she had seen a ghost. She was also very surprised and shocked that he showed up at the club to talk to her, instead of coming to speak with her in the privacy of their own home.
“The middle of a crowded nightclub is not the place to start communication,” Phaedra told Apollo.
During the low-key conversation between Phaedra and Apollo, Phaedra also revealed that her husband has not been staying at home, and he hadn’t been coming by the house. And most fans will admit that Apollo’s entire demeanor came off as both loving and overly aggressive in tonight’s episode. During the after hours session with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Cohen agreed that Apollo’s behavior was threatening in the way he dealt with Phaedra. With poor Phaedra, on the other hand, it was obvious that she did not want to cause a scene, and she didn’t want to discuss such a delicate matter with all eyes watching.
Apollo Nida told his wife that he was not coming home because he doesn’t feel that Phaedra pays him any attention. The tension between them during that nightclub scene was as thick as ice, so thick that it seemed that one could literally cut through it with a knife. It is also a very sad ending for Real Housewives of Atlanta fans who have followed this handsome couple since they made their first debut on the show. The sexual energy between them was always visible, and to see that energy reduced to the icy interaction between them tonight was almost unbearable.
According to People, Apollo stated the following to Phaedra.
“You don’t miss me? I asked if you loved me earlier? You don’t comment on that. I love you. Even if you don’t love me. You’re still my wife. Let me hold you.”
In the end, Apollo did tell her that he still loved her, and that she was still his wife. Phaedra appeared crushed as she listened to his words. She looked as if she was caught between wanting to fall into his arms, while at the same time knowing that she needed to be strong, keep her composure, and realize that they have reached the end of the road.
