While waiting to turn himself in, Nida tried to keep his marriage to Parks intact, but she wanted out. She claimed she was blindsided by his crimes. Per Nida, Parks didn’t support him by showing up for his sentencing hearing. He alleges she bailed on him when things became too tough to protect her image and reputation.

In the process, Nida accuses Parks of having an affair with a man she called “Mr. Chocolate.” She denied such, with cast members Kandi Burruss and Claudia Jordan alleging she was cheating.

The ‘RHOA’ has no interest on returning to the show

Fans of RHOA are still yearning to see the southern belle back on the show, maybe even to showcase her dating excursions. But Parks says she won’t do such. “I’ve made it very clear, that’s not what I want to do,” she recently told Entertainment Tonight “No. I will be yachting. Let them continue to sail away on the Titanic, okay? I don’t want to pick up a peach. If I wanted a peach, I would have a peach pie.”
