On a frightening The Real Housewives of Atlanta Sunday, an angry Apollo Nida showed up at Phaedra Parks’s home instead of reporting to the big house to begin serving an eight-year prison sentence for fraud.

“Apollo threatened to do all kinds of horrific things, and I was scared for our safety,” said Parks, who was having all of the locks on her house re-keyed when Nida showed up and angrily began flying through the house. “I’ve got to make sure I’m safe.”

“Why would you lock me out of my own house,” Nida yelled after pulling into the driveway, where the garage door code was being changed. “Who would do some lowdown sh– like this?”

“You’re supposed to be reporting to prison today,” replied a calm Parks. “A mind is a terrible thing to waste … and his is clearly gone.”

“Are you gonna call the police on me?” asked Nida. “Don’t play me right now.”

Instead of calling the police, Parks called Nida’s friend, Bun, who came over to try to calm him.

“It’s like he’s got a death wish,” Parks said of her estranged husband, who finally took off in his car, before returning yet again.

“Stop playing with me!” he yelled.

“I’m not sure what he’s capable of at this moment,” said a still calm Parks, “because he has nothing to lose.”

Nida then stormed through the house once more before rushing into the garage with a power drill he kept turning on and off.

“Go away from me with this!” yelled Parks.

“Listen to me for one second,” Nida whispered into her ear threateningly, the drill in his hand. “Do not call the police.”

“I might not be here when you get back,” Parks said to Nida when he finally walked away.

“You always leave me,” he said.

“I’m praying for you,” she replied.

“You should. You took everything from me. You got all these people brainwashed.”

Nida was referring to his earlier conversation with Cynthia Bailey’s husband, Peter Thomas, in which he told him he had discovered texts on Parks’s phone that showed she was having an affair with an African man named “Chocolate.”

“I was going through Phaedra’s phone … I was suspicious and she’s having an affair with some guy,” Nida told Thomas. “Telling the dude ‘I love you’ and ‘You’re my happy ever after.’ ”

Continued Nida, who had printed out all the alleged texts, including one that showed a photo of a smiling Parks and another from Parks that read ‘This time next week I’m off the plantation’: “They’re doing a countdown to when I’m going away the proof is in the pudding this is her picture.”
