Yesterday Apollo Nida entered a guilty plea for his participation in a money fraud ring. Given that he already has a felony record and plead guilty, it's assured that Apollo will serve time. He was not sentenced yesterday.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star accepted full responsibility for his role in the illegal behaviors, and cited the pressure to 'Keep up with the Leakes' for his decision to return to a life of crime!
Apollo arrived in a cream colored suit (thankfully he didn't wear his RHOA reunion getup!), and accepted full responsibility for his actions. “It’s my fault at the end of the day,” he told Judge Charles Pannell in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.
Last night on theReal Housewives of New York things got rowdy in The Berkshires. Or should I say Ramona Singer went bonkers in The Berkshires. Oh, The Berkshires – who goes there? They're just so gauche! They're so ugh – has anyone even heard of them? What are they, like a truck stop? Do they even have pinot? I mean, we know they don't have air conditioner! Who vacations without a beach? The good people all go to The Hamptons. Just ask Ramona – she's the expert on all things classy and high society. All the best society girls appear on trashy reality shows and behave like, well, trash!
Really, if LuAnn de Lesseps is any kinda friend, she'll stop taking Ramona to aerial yoga and start making her endure regular reading lessons from Class With The Countess! So Ramona happened, in The Berkshires, with the wine glass.
Before all that Sonja Morgan, takes her sexy j downtown for some business lessons from Kristen Taekman's husband Josh. Right off the bat we know this isn't going to go well because Kristen lives in a rental. A rental she can afford, but a rental nonetheless, which makes her a peasant in the eyes of Miss The Toaster Oven That Never Could!
Last week things got heated during a spa-trip when Ramona flung champagne at Kristen because she dared to get into Pinot's business. The business she was talking about in front of everyone. If you're laughing at the hypocrisy of Pinot protesting about meddling, you're not alone. But don't worry – Kristen got her back when she splashed Ramona with some holy water hot tub juices.
Tonight Ramona will retaliate again when she flings an entire glass of wine in Kristen's face requiring medical intervention! Well Ramona is apologizing in advance for her behavior during the episode.
Last night on Real Housewives of Orange County we met newbie Lizzie Rovsek, who definitely proved she's no trophy wife! Other newbie Danielle Gregorio hosted an Ugly Sweater Christmas party, which college kids have been doing since the dawn of Greek civilization. Instead of cranberry Jello shots, Danielle is serving cranberry champagne punch with very expensive 'champs', something that really chaps Heather Dubrow's notion of propriety. She's going to have to send Danielle an instructional guide to Champs, complete with illustrations.
Tamra Barney is pretty bent out of shape about having to participate in an ugly sweater affair – this coming from the woman who hosted an 80's themed Bunko party. "I'm not really into ugly," Tamra complains. I guess Tamra only supports ugly when it comes to her own ugly personality!
Lizzie makes quite a first impression with the ladies as she attends Danielle's Ugly Sweater Christmas party.
And Lizzie wants to make an impression with the viewers as well. The Sun Kitten swimwear designer and former Miss Kentucky shared 13 facts about herself with Bravo's The Dish! Including that she's not your average beauty queen – she's actually very smart – and she's a marathon runner.
Despite her cancer scare Lisa Nicole Cloud is going through with the WEN (Women's Empowerment Network) conference because she needs a distraction. Of course her first mistake was including her co-workers in the guest list. She describes the conference as a "who's-who" event, so naturally she left Mariah off the guest list. Lisa Nicole shares that the event raises 5-figures annually for charities benefiting women and children. And after this year all of those good deeds will be eclipsed by ill-behaving Bravo famewhores! Reality TV – gotta love it!
Toya Bush-Harris and Eugene put a deposit down on a house. Ever the planner, Toya is already decorating the house they do not own yet! Toya says her new high is shopping for furniture. Let's be real – Toya's high has always been spending Eugene's money!
Is it true? Has the day really come? Can I finally stop talking about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion? I mean, how many hours of this three-ring circus have we been subjected to? What was last night hour 475? I chugged a 5 Hour Energy drink vodka soda and settled in for two hours of she-said/she-said-you're dumb-annnnd now here comes the husbands! Oh and the husbands, they sure showed up. Or at least Apollo Nida did. He was gunning for Kenya Moore's title as Queen of the Krazies!
Of all the things that happened last night it was the deafening silence of Kenya in the wake of Phaedra Parks' atomic bomb of verbal destruction. At some point, Kenya, realizing she had not a friend in the eaves, gave up. She just resorted to the silent game, but it was because she was trying not to cry.
Kenya can match any of these broads with her outlandishness, wild accusations, and sheer commitment to getting the job done. NeNe Leakes is easy – she's all loud buffoonery and nebulous threats. Kandi Burruss is just gonna say her bit – loudly – and then get teary eyed, but nobody hates Kandi enough to truly come for her. Cynthia Bailey perpetually wears an expression that says, 'Please don't kick me – I'm already down!" there's no satisfaction in gunning for her. And Porsha Stewart, well, she just gets louder and wilder and self-destructs on a comical level. But Phaedra… Phaedra does not shake.
Tonight is the final episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. And after being in the forefront of the bitchy drama all season, the husbands will take the stage to give their opinions on the mayhem!
Apollo Nida will also discuss the criminal allegations against him and, once again, face off against Kenya Moore regarding 'sext-gate'. And NeNe Leakes will get a chance to make amends with Peter Thomas – or will she? Likely not! Bloop! Plonk! Bloop!
NeNe will also get in an argument with Kandi Burruss over some of NeNe's comments about Mama Joyce.
