Reality star Phaedra Parks has clearly used her time on Real Housewives of Atlanta to create more business opportunities, but her current venture has landed her right in the middle of a new feud with RHOA newbie Kenya Moore. Both of the ladies had a nasty falling out after Phaedra decided not to use her distribution company to release her Phine Body/Donkey Booty DVD, and Kenya then decided to get even and release her own workout DVD entitled Booty Bootcamp. In the end, Kenya would win the battle in sales, but Phaedra says she’s not letting Kenya get in the way of her hustle. Since the workout DVD is out of the way, Phaedra has already moved on to her new venture which is a new line of stun guns.

Through it all, Phaedra’s husband Apollo is a target of plenty of criticism, and many have called him out and labeled him as a gold digger since it does appear that Phaedra is the breadwinner in the marriage. Kenya Moore even called Apollo out on the reunion show and suggested he’s so miserable in his marriage to Phaedra that he’s been sending her steamy text messages. Apollo denied the claims, and Phaedra clapped back and accused Kenya of making sexual advances via text messages to him when she thought Phaedra had no idea she was sending him texts.

The other day, one of Kenya’s fans decided to tweet Apollo and put him in his place for some of the comments he made to Kenya at the reunion show. After she suggested he was nothing but a gold digger and married Phaedra because he couldn’t afford to pay her the legal fees he owed for representing him during his legal troubles, he quickly responded that he simply upgraded by marrying Phaedra:

    Although Apollo did clap back, Kenya’s fan is right – Apollo couldn’t afford an attorney before Phaedra.

    Kenya needs to stop the madness. Phaedra won and Kenya came off as a nutcase on the show.

    This back and forth on twitter ain’t necessary.

    Kenya’s “fans” take what they see on TV way too seriously. Why tweet him that?

    It’s funny how he didn’t deny anything. LOL. That guy is lame. All he has going for him are his looks and THAT’S IT. I just ordered Angela Stanton’s book the other day and can’t wait to read all the juicy tea! I believe Kenya btw, I think he was complaining about his wife to her!
