The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks Reveals Why She Still Isn’t Divorced From Apollo Nida in Premiere Sneak Peek

Out with the old, and in with the new! The Real Housewives of Atlanta's ninth season premieres on Sunday, November 6, and viewers can expect to get caught up on Phaedra Parks' messy divorce drama, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek.

The Bravo series' preview clip shows Porsha Williams dropping by her costar's sprawling Atlanta estate and noticing her “divorcée glow.” Parks, 43, filed for divorce in 2014 from husband Apollo Nida, who is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence on fraud charges.

"I filed for divorce last year, and it has been a long, drawn-out process because Apollo has not wanted to get the divorce," Parks tells the camera in the clip.

Williams praises the Secrets of the Southern Belle author as "voluptuous" and asks if she's finally ready to start dating again.

"I'm waiting for word on my divorce being final," Parks replies. "I'm just hoping that we can get this resolved."

Williams, 35 — who divorced Kordell Stewart in 2013 — offers to find her friend a new man: "I'm gonna make some phone calls, and we're going to start doing some dating."

However, Parks tells the camera that she's unsure about the best way to get back into the saddle. "When I decide to get back into the dating game, I don't know about this online dating stuff," she says. "They say the people on Christian Mingle are crazy — they murderers! I don't want to be on there!"

Watch the clip above. The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8 p.m. ET.
