Just when you thought things couldn’t get any uglier between Phaedra Parks and husband Apollo Nida, the relationship went from bad to worse on Sunday’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

“Phaedra is very calculated,” said Nida, who is currently serving eight years in prison for bank fraud. “I despise everything about her, but I still love her.”

Nida secretly met with an attorney to discuss divorcing Parks – before she could divorce him while he was in jail.

“I don’t have anything,” Nida told the laywer. “The government’s taken everything.”

“The boys are the victims of Apollo’s actions,” Parks said, while playing with her two sons in her pool. “If taking them to a prison is going to traumatize them, I’m not going to do it.”

Speaking of traumatic, the conciliatory lunch between Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey nearly turned into a cage match.

“I was just about to leave,” an infuriated Bailey told Williams when she arrived an hour late to the lunch Williams had arranged.

“Glad you could stay,” said a Cleopatra-styled Williams.

“To be determined,” said Bailey. “Usually, you apologize when you’re late it’s rude.”

“You say you’re super busy. Doin’ what?” asked Williams, who was angry at Bailey for not inviting her to a recent event as well as for speaking out against an anti-gay sermon Williams gave and for “flip-flopping” in the media following Williams’s brawl with Kenya Moore during last season’s reunion.

“Word on the street is you’re over there flip-flopping with an old married man for cars and bags,” retorted a sassy Bailey. “Flip-flop on that.”

Continued Bailey: “If you don’t want me to come for you, don’t come for me. Situation solved.”

And a new housewife was introduced to the cast – former Price Is Right and Deal or No Deal model Claudia Jordan, who looks to add even more heat to Hotlanta.

“I’m an alpha female. I hope to conquer Atlanta,” said the former Miss USA contestant and BFF of Moore, who moved south from L.A. to co-host the Rickey Smiley Morning Show. “I just hope they’re ready.”

“Claudia and I have always been a dynamic duo,” said Moore, who took Jordan furniture shopping, where the former Celebrity Apprentice contestant and “Barker Beauty” reenacted on a showroom bed how she once lost a crown during sex.

“I love her crazy ass,” Jordan said of Moore. “I’m an alpha female.”

The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs Sunday (8 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
