Sad News for Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida

Phaedra and Apollo both lose grandmotherNow that I think about it, Phaedra has been fairly quiet on twitter lately. She has tweeted about her new donkey booty DVD a few times but she hasn’t exactly been chatty. She hasn’t been doing her Bravo blogs. I suppose we should have wondered what was up. Tonight she took to twitter to tell us some very sad news about her absence. Click through for her message…

From Phaedra’s Bravo Blog:
“Many of you have been wondering where I’ve been and why I have not blogged lately. Well unfortunately, both Apollo and I recently lost our maternal grandmothers. In early November my grandmother became ill and I chose to direct all of my energy and focused on caring for her and supporting my mother. Unfortunately, on November 25 my dear grandmother passed away.  I immediately sprang into funeral mode preparing for her memorial service and burial. I wanted to make sure her home going service was reminiscent of her spirit: elegant, joyous, and unforgettable! As we were returning home from my grandmother’s obsequies, we learned that Apollo’s grandmother passed away. So, we have been very busy caring for our families and managing the tender moments of loss and grief.”

“I want to thank and acknowledge my Bravo and True Entertainment family, especially Kandi, NeNe, Cynthia and her lovely mother and daughter Noelle for their kind deeds and comforting words during our time of bereavement. I also want to thank all my fans and friends who supported me during this time.”

Tamaratattles sends deepest condolences.

    That is sad…

  2. Very sad news indeed. 5 years ago I lost my mother unexpectedly and one month later my husband’s father passed after a long illness. It was a horrible time for both families. I send my deepest sympathy to Phaedra, Apollo and their families.

  3. Thanks for sharing Tamara. Heartbreaking for any family during the holidays.

    I have great empathy for you and your family. May God bless you and your family.

  5. I just like, that for all the drama of the show that when required any and all rivalries are put aside for support & love between the Housewives. Mighty impressive. My thoughts are with Miss Phaedra.

  6. Aww Julius… I hate to bust your Christmas time bubble of joy and peace on earth. But the rivalries remain. This season it’s veterans V. Newbies….Phaedra has a major falling out with Porsha. Everyone shuns Kenya… it’s all still there some teams have just added new players.

      Sad for her & Apollo’s losses.
      When will we see the fallout with Porsha?
      I like Phaedra. So far, Porsha seems harmless – flighty. Can’t stand Kenya.
