Phaedra: I Was Hoping Apollo Wouldn't Create a Scene
Phaedra Parks shares her thoughts on Apollo's surprise appearance at the party.
Bravotv.com: Did you find the advice from Kandi’s cousin Melvin helpful?
Phaedra Parks: A personal perspective based on experience is always insightful. I appreciate him sharing his thoughts and experience with me so openly.
Bravotv.com: What were your first impressions of Demetria and Claudia?
PP: When I attended Demetria's event, my focus was an evening of escape from my current reality. I didn't attend with the idea of engaging in any captivating conversations. I had very limited interaction with Demetria and Claudia, so my first impression was merely that both women were attempting to embark on new career and relationship frontiers.
Bravotv.com: How difficult was it for you when Apollo surprised you at the party?
PP: It was not difficult at all, but quite uncomfortable. Not only uncomfortable for me, but I would think uncomfortable for everyone else as well. I cannot think of a more inappropriate time or place to have a private conversation about our marriage than in the middle of a nightclub during the premiere of a music video. At that particular place in time, the tension in our relationship was at an all-time high. And even though Apollo had not been around much, the stress was ever present as was evident. I was just really hoping he would not create a scene. My goal was to not fan any of his ego flames, nor have a private conversation in a public place. Everybody knows it would be better to let your slip show a little bit in order to avoid the possibility of having to show your entire ass.
