Despite months of divorce rumors, "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks says she is sticking with her husband Apollo Nida as he faces bank fraud and identity theft charges. 

Speaking with Bravo executive Andy Cohen during Sunday's episode of “Watch What Happens: Live,” Parks said she would remain by her husband’s side. “I will support him until this is resolved,” Parks said. She added that her marriage to her husband wasn’t in any trouble and the divorce rumors were false. “No, I have not filed for divorce. I am still very married,” said Parks.

Parks went on to tell Cohen that the scandal has been tough on their family, but they are working through it, reports Radar. “We are a family. He’s the father of my two beautiful kids, and at the end of the day, I am a Southern belle and I believe in family,” she said.

The lawyer also stressed that she is not involved in Nida’s case and will not represent him in court. “Obviously I have nothing to do with his current issues. He is going to appear [on the next reunion show] and have his own conversation with the lovely Andy Cohen and he will tell you all about his issues and problems and I will sit back quietly and listen.”

The “WWHL” interview followed the dramatic “RHOA” reunion show that included the much-discussed altercation between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams. Parks said she did try to prepare Williams ahead of the March 27 reunion show taping, warning her to try to remain level-headed no matter what was said to her. But according to Parks, Moore may have gone too far.

“But Kenya has a way of provoking people. She’s like a big bully. She talks a lot of talk and cannot walk the walk,” said Parks. 

Nida is reportedly working out a possible plea deal with federal prosecutors regarding his charges of bank fraud and identity theft. A judge has given his lawyers until Friday to finalize a deal. If this deadline isn't met, he may face time in prison.
