I wish I could have kept my d— in my pants," he told the magazine, later saying, "I wasn't a man. That wasn't the man thing to do at all… She didn't deserve that."

A judge has tossed out the divorce judgement that ended "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks' marriage to Apollo Nida, reports TMZ. Phaedra filed for divorce back in 2014 a month after Apollo started an eight-year prison sentence for his role in a fraudulent auto-loan scheme. In November 2016, she claimed that it had been finalized. Apparently, the divorce was granted by default last July because Apollo had failed to respond to Phaedra's filing. But in December 2016, he contested it on the grounds that he'd never been served or given a chance to respond. He filed his own divorce petition on Dec. 1. A judge has now sided with Apollo, noting that he was troubled by the fact that Phaedra intentionally misspelled Apollo's last name as "Nita" in her original paperwork and that it had been suggested that Apollo would attend future divorce hearings from prison, which was never a possibility, TMZ explained in a March 24, 2017, report. The couple are parents to young sons Dylan and Ayden.

As reported by Us Weekly, the British actress recalled being in her trailer on the Los Angeles set of the 1998 movie "Primary Colors" — in which she played a character modeled on Hillary Clinton (how crazy is that?!) — when the phone rang. It was the day after her divorce from Kenneth Branagh had been finalized. "Hi, it's Donald Trump here," said the voice on the other line. Emma explained that it was "like a moose had just entered my trailer" since that phone had never rung before. Donald offered her a place to stay, "some accommodation in one of my Trump Towers. They're really comfortable," she remembers him saying. He also told her "Well, you know, I think we would get on very well. Maybe we could have dinner some time." She said she "didn't know what to do with myself" and did not accept. "I just said, 'Okay, well, I'll get back to you. Thank you so much for ringing."

Just last week Jenny Slate opened up about her failed nine-month relationship with Chris Evans. And now he's doing the same — in a refreshing change from the way celebrities are typically so tight-lipped after their relationships end. "She's the best," Chris said of Jenny to People.com. "I've never ever ever met someone in my life who has a mastery of the English language the way she does. She'll give you one sentence and there's no fat to it. You're like, 'You just chose such an unbelievable collection of words that beautifully articulate what you say.'" Chris admits he's usually quiet about his personal life, but because his relationship with Jenny was special he wanted to share about it. "If the things you're doing and the things you're surrounding yourself with are quality people and they are beautiful experiences, there's no shame in sharing," Chris further explained. Pretty refreshingly honest, right?
