Phaedra Parks, best known for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and husband Apollo Nida are calling it quits.

Phaedra's rep Steve Honig told People that the reality star "has retained an attorney with the intent of amicably ending her marriage."

Apollo is serving an eight-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to bank fraud and identity theft.

In July, Apollo was already seeing the writing on the wall, as he predicted the split during an interview with radio station Atlanta B100.

"I mean, my wife didn't even f---ing show up for my sentencing," he said, "so I'm still kind of salty about that."

The couple have two children together: four-year-old Ayden and one-year-old Dylan.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe are also facing a trying period in their marriage after their sentencing. Teresa was sentenced to 15 months in prison for charges including bank fraud, mail and wire fraud and bankruptcy fraud, while her husband Joe was ordered to serve 41 months in jail and must pay $414,000 in restitution. Their sentences will be staggered so that they can look after their children, Gia, Milania, Gabriella and Audriana.
