Attorney Phaedra Parks
of the Real Housewives of Atlanta
and her handsome hubby Apollo Nida were picture perfect when they were spotted out and about a few days ago.
The couple attended Captain Planet Foundation’s annual benefit gala alongside 700 of the most environmentally conscious elite of Atlanta which included Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.
The event was held at the Georgia Aquarium last Friday evening, and apparently rumors are swirling after an announcer “slipped up” and revealed some news about Phaedra.

Brandy and Derek J posed for a photo rocking similar attire last weekend.
Bran who was spotted arriving in Atlanta all boo’d up just a few days ago, posed with Atlanta’s own Derek Jae (who has been dubbed the “ambassador of Black Gay Pride since he was EVERYWHERE) and they both were head to toe in “ALL GOLD EVERYTHING”!
Brandy was in town last weekend (along with several other celebrities) to perform at Club Traxx and according to my boo DramaDupree:
She might not have anything new out or playing on the radio stations at the moment (but several things are in the works) and that doesn’t mean the kids at Atlanta Black Gay Pride weren’t happy to see the singer when she took the to stage for Club Traxx.
Nivea even came through to show support.
[Sidebar: I hope Nivea either stayed sober or had a designated driver…]
