Phaedra Parks' Divorce From Apollo Nida Is Finalized
Phaedra Parks‘ divorce from jailed husband Apollo Nida is finalized.

The 43-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirms the news to PEOPLE, saying the ending of their almost seven-year marriage would be documented on the hit Bravo show’s upcoming ninth season.

The couple, who split in 2014, began divorce proceedings last season. Nida is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft in May 2014.  He was also incarcerated from 2003 to 2009 for car theft charges.

Parks tells PEOPLE that after Nida left, she had to regroup, refocus and work on herself and children — Ayden, 6, and Dylan, 3. And while she’s not ready to start dating just yet, she knows her kids will be a part of it when she does.

“If I date someone, they have to date all three of us,” she shares. “We’ll be a foursome — me and my two kids and him. It has to be a whole family affair.”

“And at this time, that’s not really my top priority. My priority is making sure they’re okay,” she adds. “I think dating is in the bright near future, but it’s got to be someone who’s definitely a really good guy. I can’t have any crazy at this point in my life.”

So what exactly is Parks looking for in a guy? It’s no surprise that the attorney, funeral director and philanthropist has a long list.

“A good sense of humor, confident, God-fearing, generous, hopefully wealthy, attractive — all of those things,” she says.
