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 month Apollo Nida's attorney filed a "waiver of indictment", which basically says he's waiving his right to a trial and it's usually filed when a plea deal has been hammered out. From what we know, the waiver is filed shortly before an official plea is entered before the judge. And that seems to be what is going on here. The waiver documents were filed on April 24th and today it's reported that Apollo plead guilty to some of those initial charges. It looks like it's safe to say he's worked out an agreement but we don't know any further details until they're filed and available online – hopefully tonight or tomorrow.
So what did NeNe have to say about this season? Well, let's just say she is definitely being truthful, by calling it 'entertaining' but 'sad and negative at times.' Although NeNe did not mention any housewives by name, I am here to help read between the lines.
Porsha Williams is waking up to the harsh reality of social media bashing after a weekend performance of her debut single, Flatline. You know how it goes, once you become a housewife, you then need to find your inner diva and release a single, right? Porsha is just following in the footsteps of Melissa Gorga, Kim Zolciak, Kenya Moore and LuAnn DeLesseps.
Now, I heard Porsha sing in Kandi's play, as well as on the reunion. She sounded pretty good. But apparently she was a little off this weekend. And the fans in attendance took to social media to let her have it!
Let us all take a moment and let us mourn the friendship of our favorite ladies from Atlanta — Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes…
Is it just me or did it seem like these to were friends at the end of the season? There was that whole NeNe calling Cynthia's husband, Peter Thomas, a B—t, but didn't NeNe's husband take everyone to dinner and they made up after that?
Maybe I missed something? But I was shocked that during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion — I think it was brought up in all three parts — that NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey are no longer friends. So what happened?
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.
Even though your DVR claimed there was a two hour season finale of Real Housewives of Atlantatonight, it was really just an hour and thirty minutes long, topped off with an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Sneaky way to again claim RHOA's ratings as WWHL ratings, too? Anywhoo… Andy sits down one-on-one with Porsha Williams to chat about the reunion brawl with Kenya Moore and her abuse claims regarding Kordell Stewart and she calls Kenya out for lying about being the first black Miss USA winner.
Porsha says she's been in contact with Phaedra, Kandi and NeNe since everything went down, but she hasn't heard from Cynthia.
Andy wants to know what her cast mates had to say to her. "Phaedra was just really upset. These girls know me now at this point. I've been their friend for two years straight, so for them to see me act completely out of character and let Kenya win like that. That was the main thing, I was sorry that it had to reach that point, I was sorry that that was my reaction, but more than that I was sorry that I gave her the power to make me go and do something like that."
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.
