In shocker news according to TMZ, Apollo Nida is engaged! This news comes just as the same week of he and ex-wife Phaedra Parks having their divorce officially finalized. The kicker however is that Nida and his new fiancee, Sherien Almufti have been together back in 2014 right before going to prison and after separating from Phaedra.
The two apparently gotten engaged a couple months ago and she lives in NJ, and she visits twice a week as he is carrying out his sentencing in a NJ prison.
She and Apollo have both shot scenes for the upcoming ‘RHOA’ season (his by phone). The producers wanted to keep her identity under wraps until the episode airs, but she had already been revealed by multiple sources, including Nida himself having a picture dated back in 2014.
Almufti did not shoot scenes with Parks, but Phaedra’s reaction to the relationship was captured.
His team confirmed the news via instagram, writing: “You see that smile? That’s how she makes me feel all over!#MyQueen #NidaFitness #TheNidaTeam”
Almufti has already started filming with the RHOA cast and has been seen at the Old Lady Gang restaurant with Peter Thomas, which blatantly shows that Kandi Burruss’ and Phaedra Park’s friendship is entirely over.
Confirmed. Video of @apollonida03's fiancé Sherien Almufti with @peterthomasrhoa and @todd167 . We're told Peter was all hype when he found out who she was and was all over her acting stupid. The Bravo production team also gave her this $3500.00 jacket you see and the Chanel bag to borrow while she filmed. They also gave her a white Benz truck and Rolex to film in. Kandi Burruss wasn't too friendly with Sherien and it said she treated her mean 💅☕ Video credit @therealhousewivesofatlanta Part 11/11
We will have to wait and see how the episode airs and what happens from then!
