Shereé Whitfield met up with her ‘old friend’ Apollo Nida to seek relationship advice and catch up.
Apollo took the opportunity to give some insight into his relationship with his ex-wife before and after he went to jail.
According to People on Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, the She by Shereé fashion designer, 52, said she lost contact with Apollo after he went away for bank fraud and identity theft n 2014.
“Apollo and I have always been good friends, but we lost contact when he went to prison,”
“Since he’s been home we’ve communicated on and off, but I wanted to meet up with him in person because I needed some advice about [ex-boyfriend] Tyrone (Gilliams).”
“It was good while it was good, then we just kind of cut it off,” Whitfield told Nida of her past relationship with Gilliams. “Fast forward maybe six years, while he was in prison we talked about anything and everything and that’s what we were lacking when he was out.”
NIda revealed that he actually crossed paths with Gilliams while both of them were serving time in prison.
“I ran into Tyrone while I was in the system,” he said. “He told me you guys were dating and I’m like, ‘Okay, whatever.’ He’s like, ‘That’s my girl.'”
“I’ll admit, I fell in love with the guy,” said Whitfield. “I thought I was going to be with him for the rest of my life.”
“So what happened?” Nida asked.
“So he gets out, I was in New York with the girls, I drove to Philly, and I was sitting and waiting on him in a restaurant. And he just never showed up, and never called, never texted,” she responded. “Just ghosted me.”
“Apollo, when I tell you I was so f—ing devastated … It was humiliating,” she continued. “So I reached out to him a couple of months after he stood me up. He answered the phone, picked up first ring like nothing happened. We talked for a second, but we didn’t really talk long. Since then, he’s been calling me and texting me.”
“That’s going to mess up everything that you’re doing,” Nida said. “That’s a lot of making up to do.”
“A lot of negative energy,” added Whitfield.
Apollo also dished on his relationship with Phaedra, claiming his ex-wife left him to die and basically rotten. Claiming she did not show up to any of his Court or Jail events and she kept his children away from him.

Before the episode aired Phaedra gave her take on the whole Apollo Sheree link-up, and this is what she said during an interview with the Daily Dish:
“I don’t know. I have no idea,” Phaedra said with a laugh in a phone interview with The Daily Dish when asked if she had any intel on their work together. “I have no idea about that part. He loves fashion. Being in the [fashion] industry, I don’t know about that. I tend to mind the business that pays me, and since he’s not one of the businesses that pays me, what he does when he’s not around me and my kids is none of my business.”
I know that’s right!
