If anyone understands how hard it is to go through a divorce with the eyes of the world on you, it's Phaedra Parks. The Real Housewives of Atlanta attorney went through her own very public split from Apollo Nida when they ended their marriage in 2014. So she has some words of wisdom for Cynthia Bailey as she currently goes through a divorce from her husband, Peter Thomas.RELATED: ‘Real Housewives’ Producer to Pay $411,000 in Restitution for Unpaid Overtime
"Well Cynthia and I spoke and I feel bad for anyone going through a divorce because it's very difficult in particular when you are on a television show and everyone is giving their opinions," Phaedra told The Daily Dish. "So you have to do what's best for you because at the end of the day nothing is more important than your peace of mind and your joy — and when you lose that, you have lost yourself."
Cynthia confirmed her divorce from Peter earlier this summer after six years of marriage. And now Phaedra thinks now the former model should put herself first. "So I would tell anybody: Do what's best for you because you only have one life," she said. "And the good book only says he promises 70 years and so, you know hey, count it down."
