Apollo Nida’s fiancé Sherian Almufti speaks out about their relationship.
Right before making her debut appearance on last nights episode of “RHOA”, Apollo’s new fiancé Sherian Almufti (34), felt the need to set some things straight. In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Almufti talks about what changed the dynamic of she and Apollo’s relationship, how he proposed and how their relationship didn’t become romantic until after his split from Phaedra. Get into the deetz below…
On when their relationship changed:
I think the night we took him away [to prison] I felt something completely different. Like, we’ve experienced something, you know. He cried on my shoulder. We held [each other] for a while. I just let him know — I told him as a friend — ‘I’m gonna be there for you.’ See, he was there for me, as well. … So I, in return as a friend first, before anything else, I told him I was gonna be there for him. Because I watched how a lot of people kind of just turned their backs on him.
Almufti makes it clear that their relationship did not start off romantic and says that she had “tremendous respect for his marriage.”
I was married before and my husband cheated on me. And at the same time, I was actually dating someone. So I wasn’t like — it wasn’t that way. It was just more — it started out as a business situation.
On how Apollo Proposed:
He just held my hand and he asked and I didn’t think he was serious and I was like, ‘What? This is not how I obviously imagined you asking me to marry you, but OK’. But, yeah, it was unexpected. But he did promise me a different proposal — a different setting.
Awwww how romantic!! (Giggles). Anywho, home girl still has some time to walk down the aisle since her soon to hubby is currently serving out his 8yrs in prison.
