Last week, a close friend of local attorney Phaedra Parks reached out to me via phone to ask, "Why are they saying Phaedra and Apollo broke up?"

She was referring to the blog chatter and Twitter rumors that reality TV personality Phaedra Parks's husband, Apollo Nida, moved out of Phaedra's house.

Phaedra's friend wondered why the blogs were writing these things about Phaedra and Appollo breaking up when they are still together.

One blogger in particular, Michelle, of Straight From the A blog, wrote a post suggesting that Apollo is tweeting random groupies from an apartment somewhere in Buckhead. But Apollo doesn't have a job, so how can he afford to pay the rent on an apartment?

And isn't Phaedra Michelle's attorney? Wouldn't she know if Phaedra was changing the locks, or pouring gasoline on Apollo's things on the front lawn?

The answer is simple: season 5 of Real Housewives of Atlanta is currently filming -- and the show's producers have run out of story lines.

So it's likely that Phaedra and Apollo are pulling a NeNe and Greg -- pretending to be split up when they're actually not.

This is the tiresome method of scripted urban reality shows: they blur the lines between reality and fiction and hope their viewers are too gullible to know the difference.

    I didn't hear about the supposed split anway :shrug: I wouldn't have been surprised though... They don't match to me.

    :rofl: That pic is worth a thousand words.

  • lady_cn

    Eh, do we really care? :coffee:

    I'm just glad you didn't post the pickle picture.

    This rumor fueled a nasty exchange between Muthaknows and Michelle. Mutha was dragging her up and down the TL. Twitter was going crazy with the "Tweefs" this weekends. Not to mention the IMO PR stunt going on between Kendra Davis and Kim Zolciak. I thought Kendra had lost her mind with all the crazy tweets towards Kim.

    I agree with Auntie! Bravo is doing THE MOST to promote Season 5 of RHOA!

  • Ms. Everything

    I had no clue that they were supposed to be broken up :shrugs:

  • YSoSrs

    Ah...the shade... :lol:

    I’m just glad you didn’t post the pickle picture.

    That's because Sandra loves us.

  • GAGIRL87

    After a long and EVENTFUL weekend I have nothing on this topic I'm just tryna keep it in the road over here :coffee:

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Twitter was created to promote chitty albums and tv shows.

  • Daisy

    While I loved both RHOA and BBQ wives MIA they have both have run their courses and they need to do one more season and move on.

    LOL at Apollo doesn't have a job :lol: so messy Auntie

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Don't you owe us a morning glory....

  • Daisy

    @Man that would be a great trending topic on twitter....#twitterwascreated

  • Jdore

    I've got nothing to say on this post...

    :waves: Morning everyone!

  • lovezoe

    @Man- Not until we gets us a Morning Wood.

    I hear that whole Nicki Minaj fiasco was rigged and she never had any intention of doing Summer Jam

  • Man, I just don’t care™

    Naw. Its about time for some lady appreciating in here. Azz and tits plastered on the screen type appreciation.

    Hopefully some lovely young amateur lady submits her pics to Sandra. Oh yeah, let her be "smart" or whatever bullchit she trying to call herself too.

  • Gigi26

    :waves: Morning Everyone :yawn: Still tired from the wknd

    Anywhoo, ummm Phaedra ain't going no damn where. And this story is VERY hard to believe.

    @Zoe: Someone said they knew from yest that she wasn't going to be there. I really doubt anyone cared enough to notice because Summer Jam has been whack for a really long time. No one cared to see her theatrics. When Lauryn and Nas came out I was hype and when Jeezy brought 2 chainz out that was cool. But the rest of it? Yeah, basura.

  • BoogieNites

    :yawn: .. and uh @ her underarm/ boobie fat urea. *irked* how does that happen? does that mean her dress it tootight ?!?

  • Gigi26

    And I saw Justin Combs on that stage with Ricky Rozay's tits and friends acting like he was all tough.

    :offtopic: Maybe its just me but why in all the EFFS when a dude performs, he got a gang full of niggs in back of him?! That shyt is hella :homo: to me. Like MMG had like 50 niggs on the stage just standing there and rapping along. Male groupiedom is an epidemic :no:

  • buddapecan

    Auntie: actually Michelle was the one who disputed the rumor of them breaking up. Michelle was the one "proving" that there was a chick creating fake Twitta accounts and lying on Apollo. Nevertheless...I won't be watching. :coffee: <<H2O

  • Daisy

    All the summer jams streams kept freezing :mad: I only wanted to see Nas :hump:

  • gypsyeyes

  • pointhimout

  • KDub

    But Apollo doesn’t have a job, so how can he afford to pay the rent on an apartment?
    He is a nanny that MIGHT not live in-house anymore.

  • StillB3lieve

    Morning :waves: at all

    I stopped watching this show 2 seasons ago. I've had enough of that show and a lot of shows that are on Tv in general.

  •!/Birdshu Bird

    I hadn't heard they broke up. Anywho, Appolo does have a job. He's a reality show supporting cast member. That is a paying gig.
