Admitting she was ready for Nida to go, Parks confessed that she wasn’t prepared to handle the emotions that came with his departure. She hoped Burruss would have understood that, rather than making their split “light.”RELATED: How Did Phaedra Parks And Kandi Burruss Go From Friends To Foes?
That implication set Burruss off.
“I’m making it light because you made it light to me,” she clapped back. “You was already talking to other people before your husband even went to jail. When we would talk, you’d be like you was already ready to marry somebody else by the new year. So it really was a stress off your back at the time. That’s the way you was puttin’ it to me.”
Her words were shocking — even though this wasn’t the first time Parks had been accused of having an extra-marital relationship. Before Nida went to jail to begin serving his eight-year sentence for bank fraud and identity theft, he claimed he had found text messages between Parks and a man only know as “Mr. Chocolate.”
Though they’re divorced now, Nida and Parks were still legally married at the time of the “Mr. Chocolate” texts and had not filed any divorce paperwork.
Parks denied the cheating allegations at the time, but kept mum while Burruss — who said she knew “Mr. Chocolate” — brought their rumored romance up.
“I understood you can’t just let everybody know how you really feel because people look down upon woman who don’t stand by their man the whole time, so I just let it go,” Burruss said. “But don’t make me the scapegoat. That’s how I felt all these years — you was doing your pity party, but when you were with me there was no pity party.”
