One person who apparently loved watching Kandi Burruss lash out at Phaedra Parks and expose her secrets on The Real Housewives of Atlanta is Sherien Almufti, the fiancee of Phaedra’s ex, Apollo Nida. On Monday night, Sherien posted a collage of two photos of herself watching the reality TV show.
One photo shows Sherien looking shocked. The other shows her smiling. “Oh WOW!! So your s**t does stink after all!!!!!” Sherien wrote for her caption. “#TeamApolloandSherien” and “FreeAp,” she included as her hashtags.
While Sherien didn’t specifically name Phaedra in her Instagram post, most people who left comments on Sherien’s post took it to be a direct dig at Phaedra. After all, Kandi and Phaedra’s tense argument was the highlight moment of Sunday night’s episode. Also, during the argument, Kandi accused Phaedra of portraying herself to be something that she’s not and only caring about her public image. Kandi hurled some accusations that painted Phaedra in a less innocent and saintly light. There is also the fact that Sherien is now in a relationship with Phaedra’s ex and has presumably heard a lot about Phaedra from Apollo, and perhaps has even met her.
Some people lashed out at Sherien for her post. One person told Sherien that she’s just Apollo’s rebound.
“bunz_hunz_@queensherien: Girl bye your his rebound so…..????????☕️”
Others commented that Sherien is just thirsty for attention and wants to be relevant.
“created_withpurpose: @unregistered.shade chile… why she coming for Phaedra tho? Too thirsty for attention????”
“0xchristina.dasilva: You wanna be relevant so bad”
One person even told Sherien to conduct herself like a grown woman and to stop her obsession with Phaedra.
“llauralovely: You’re a grown a** woman. Conduct yourself as one. Your obsession is getting pathetic now.
Others, however, encouraged Sherien. One person called Phaedra a “fraud h**” and told Sherien to get Apollo to spill the tea on her and expose her secrets.
“khirssy: Lol yasssss hunty Go in on that Fraud h**. Get your many to spill the tea on that h**.”
Another person told Sherien to go after “shady phae phae.”
“sslago: @queensherien get shady phae phae together girl!! Honestly, I’m rooting for you!!”
On the latest The Real Housewives of Atlanta episode, Kandi Burruss and Phaedra Parks got into a tense argument during a dinner date that Phaedra arranged to talk about the negative comments that Kandi’s mom, Mama Joyce, said about her. Phaedra, who used to be very good friends with Kandi, questioned why Kandi was behaving so hostile and angry towards her. Phaedra said that Kandi’s life was going well, and if anyone should be upset, it should be her, considering what she went through and continues to go through with the currently incarcerated Apollo Nida and the fact that she’s now a single mom to two young boys.
Kandi accused Phaedra of just portraying herself as a victim, pointing out that she can financially provide for her children and that Apollo was a big stress in her life, so now she’s actually better off with him gone. Kandi went on to say that Phaedra was actually very eager for the day that Apollo reported to prison to come, and she excitedly looked forward to dating other people. According to Kandi, Phaedra was already talking to other people even before Apollo reported to prison and even predicted that she’d be married again soon.
“We both know, you was counting down the days until he went away anyways…I’m making it light cause you made it light to me…You was already talking to other people before your husband even went to jail. When we would talk, you be like, you was already planning to marry somebody else by the new year. So really, it was a stress off your back at the time. That was the way you were putting it to me.”
Kandi further accused Phaedra of publicly portraying herself as someone to be pitied when she certainly wasn’t like that in real life.
“You was doing your pity party but with me there was no pity party.”
In her confessional interview, Kandi went so far as accusing Phaedra, who repeatedly said on the show and in interviews that she was waiting until her divorce was finalized before dating others, of having had sexual relations with another man during her marriage to Apollo.
“Now I know my name is Kandi but it ain’t chocolate okay and you know you had chocolate melted in your mouth and not in your hands honey!”
Apollo Nida and Sherien Almufti went public with their relationship and engagement in early November. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Sherien said in a recent interview that she and Apollo were friends first and that it was she who drove him to prison in September 2014 to begin his 8-year sentence for fraud. According to Shrien, the friendship turned romantic only after Apollo began his prison sentence.
Phaedra is definitely well aware of Sherien. During her recent appearance on Andy Cohen’s talk show, Watch What Happens Live, Andy showed Apollo and Sherien’s engagement photos and asked Phaedra for her thoughts. Phaedra smiled, gave a thumbs-up gesture, and answered with a very short answer.
“I wish him all the best.”
Viewers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta will apparently see Sherien Almufti make an appearance later on in the season. As the Inquisitr reported, Kandi Burruss confirmed in a recent interview that Sherien showed up to a cast event held at her new restaurant, Old Lady Gang. Kandi admitted that it was awkward to have Sherien around. A short clip of Sherien filming with Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker, and Cynthia Bailey’s ex, Peter Thomas, both of whom remain friends with Apollo, has circulated around social media.

Her name is #SherienAlmufti (@queensherien) and she's a real estate broker from Philadelphia. This is about to be a MESS! #RHOA
