Phaedra Parks’ ex-husband Apollo Nida is celebrating his first birthday on the outside world in five years and his life has certainly changed since 2014.

Nida had been behind bars on charges of conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud. But he was released from the Fort Dix Correctional Facility in July ahead of his scheduled date of Oct. 19. Now the 41-year-old is soaking up his big day with fiancée Sherien Almufti.

By the time the post made its way into the world of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans, however, the reception was not nearly as warm.

“Who the hell cares, get awayy from us with dis. 🥱🥱

“If his azz would have behaved, they probably would have been on this season. #heauxwell”

“Divorce was the best thing that happened to Ms phae.. she is out here living her best life .. they look like they belong together and I don’t mean that in a good way”

“Thoughts is who cares she ain’t PHADREA and don’t have phadrea money or can’t throw shade like her 🤣🤣🤣

Parks has remained quiet as her ex-husband’s birthday goes on. She’s been focusing on her own love life as of late. She’s been dating former “The Haves and the Have Nots” actor Medina Islam since the summer.

“He’s very smart, very intelligent. He’s kind, we are both socially active. He’s really sober and smart. He’s a great father. So I’m excited about it,” she gushed of her beau, whom she met on the elite dating app Raya, to The Daily Mail.
