Apollo Nida is doubtful his marriage to Phaedra Parks will last through his incarceration, he told an Atlanta radio station.

Nida, who was convicted of check fraud and money laundering, will spend eight years in jail and believes Parks will not be waiting for him when he returns home.  While he says his biggest regret is watching his son deal with the repercussions of his decisions, he is still “salty” Parks never showed up to his sentencing.

Asked bluntly if he thinks his personal life will sustain the next eight years, he was quick to say, “I doubt it,” before explaining “My wife didn’t even show up for my f***ing sentencing so I’m still salty about that.”  He admits his family life has been “hell on wheels” since the legal troubles began, but he’s working to become a better man for his kids.  “I am remorseful.  I love my kids… and I’m most sad and disappointed I let my little man down.”

Nida will serve eight years in jail after being convicted of check fraud and money laundering.  He laundered more than $2.3 million through phony bank accounts, though he managed a reduced sentencing for outing his accomplices.
