Sherien Almufti is ready to walk down the aisle – but her fiancé Apollo Nida is still behind bars! On this week's Say Yes to the Dress, Almufti tries on wedding gowns despite the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star's incarceration for fraud.
"This will be my first time ever trying on a wedding dress," Almufti said. "I can't wait! I am marrying Apollo. I am marrying my best friend! I love him so much."
She continued that he is on RHOA and in federal prison. "His release date is in 2020," she said. "I'm a patient person, but now that I'm dress shopping, I'll make the time go faster. I wish he was here today honestly."
She explained how they met "years and years ago" through mutual friends. "We didn't officially become a couple until he got arrested," she said. "I stood by his side when nobody else did. That's what drew us closer. Now we're here. In the next two years, it's going to happen. Once he gets out, right after that it's happening. We're so ready!"
She explained how Nida wants her to buy a mermaid-style wedding dress. She explained how she has a budget of $10,000.
Almufti tried on a Cinderella-style wedding dress and a mermaid-style wedding dress before finding "the one." Her opinionated "fashionista" daughter and three friends approved of a Rivini gown that featured sheer, crystals and a tulle train.
"I cannot wait for him to get out of that prison," she said. "It's going to be the moment I've always wanted!"
They have been engaged since 2016. Nida was previously married to Phaedra Parks from 2009 to 2017. He is currently serving an 8-year sentence for fraud and will be released from Fort Dix Correctional Facility on August 29, 2020.
