Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPorsha Stewart is all over the place isn't she? She seems to be embracing her inner reality star, giving interviews to both OK Magazine and Star recently. Didn't read it in the check-out aisle of the grocery store? No worries! Porsha is happy to recap them for you!
Porshaposted an Instagram video montage which highlights her Q and A with both tabloids as well as her life as a newly single gal. Honey, it's Star. Let's chat when you're on the cover of People!
Phaedra Parks and Dwight are hosting their annual 'What the hell is going on but Phaedra certainly never does anything half-assed' celebration. This year it's a naming ceremony for Mr. President.
Dwight really needs to update both his Benz and his facelift – and he also needs to return that blazer to Dorothy Zbornak. Phaedra envisions an "Inaugural Ball" theme for her future leader of the free world. Let's give it up for the first president whose dad is in the slammer. Too soon?
They prance through the grounds discussing their plans for secret service, swing dancers, and miniature tuxedos. And possibly a waterfall-side mother-of-the-president skinny dip twerk. Thankfully that was nixed. These two have such good ideas: are they going to plan a pre-prison inauguration for Apollo before he heads into the Big House?
Cynthia Bailey and La La Anthony were the guests on tonight's Watch What Happens Live. As you can guess, most of the questions were for Cynthia, not only because of Apollo Nida's arrest bombshell, but also because of tonight's epically crazy episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Despite all the attention on RHOA, La La did get a chance to plug her new book, "The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness", which is releasing on Tuesday. I love La La and felt a little bad for her that most of her camera time was spent playing a game filled with questions about the Kardashians, since La La is good friends with Kim. I think La La's plenty interesting on her own, Andy. To her credit, she was a good sport about it.
Andy jumps right in to chat about the shocking arrest of Apollo and asks Cynthia if she has spoken to Phaedra and/or Apollo, "Not a whole lot. I mean, I read about it as well. I don't like to call people when I hear bad news. I like to call people when I hear good news. I think Peter did speak to Apollo earlier today and he said they were taking care of things. Hopefully everything will work out. "
"I felt that I was misrepresented because I’m not that type of person. I just want people to know that my main thing is that I love my daughter and I know my daughter loves me more than anything. There’s nothing I won’t do for her."
"They were making it seem like I was more worried about her taking care of me, which is not true because I take care of myself. My daughter will give me anything I want but I’m not the kind of mother that sits back and keeps my hand out and I never have been."
With the shocking arrest of Apollo Nida for embezzlement, bank fraud, conspiracy, and identity theft, we're gasping for breath! Many are wondering if Phaedra Parks is involved, how much she knew, will the couple stay married, or will Phaedra be charged next? And of course there are as many rumors surrounding Phaedra and Apollo's situation as there are charges.
We expect more and more information, rumors, and gossip to emerge daily surrounding the Real Housewives of Atlanta stars. I'm personally very hopeful (and inclined to believe) Phaedra's hands are clean. I simply cannot imagine her jeopardizing Prince Ayden and Mr. President's future by participating in anything this illegal. I also consider her way too smart to get messed up in something so risky. However, that's just my opinion.
Below is a rundown of the the rumors surrounding Apollo's behavior and the couple's marital status! Please remember, Reality Tea is not confirming or denying the rumors – we are simply reporting on what we've heard.
Phaedra took to her blog to talk about her New Year's resolutions and wishes for a "spectacular" 2014. On January 23rd she wrote, "Happy New Year! Last year was awesome and I know 2014 will be even more spectacular. As always, my life has been moving at meteorite speed. Between my family, work, and social commitments, the little free time I have is devoted to some much needed sleep. Every New Year, many of us reflect and resolve to do better and more than the prior year. In 2014, I aspire to be a better mother, wife, friend, and servant to my community."
As we told you last night, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida was arrested on charges of bank fraud, identity theft and more. The criminal complaint is a doozy and we have decided to share a large portion of it here with you because it's a good read and worth your time. Grab your morning coffee and a couple dozen doughnuts and prepare to settle in for a tale that reads like an episode of your favorite crime series.
The criminal complaint was filed on January 21st and Apollo's arrest warrant was issued the same day. Here's the complaint's intro, "From on or about September 1, 2010 in Fulton County, in the Northern District of Georgia, and elsewhere, defendant did, knowingly and willfully execute and attempt to execute a scheme to defraud federally insured financial institutions by depositing stolen and fraudulently obtained checks and fraudulently obtained auto loan proceeds into bank accounts opened in the stolen identities of real persons, and conspire with others to do so, and knowingly convert to his use and the use of others stolen and fraudulently obtained United States Treasury Checks, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section(s) 641, 1028A, 1344 and 1349."
Here are the charges against Apollo: "there is probable cause to believe that NIDA has committed violations of Title 18, United States Code, Section 641 (embezzlement, theft and conversion of public money); Title 18, United States Code, Section 1028A (aggravated identity theft); Title 18, United States Code, Section 1344 (bank fraud); and Title 18, United States Code, and Section 1349 (conspiracy)."
It seems that two things sealed the deal for Apollo's arrest: his "right hand b****, Gayla St. Julien, and damning evidence (more than a thousand pieces of it) found on his seized laptop.
Oh lawd. Sexting co-stars is the last thing Apollo Nida is worried about this week! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was reportedly charged with bank fraud and identity theft and has surrendered to the U.S. Marshals.
According to Sandra Rose, "Nida appeared in front of US District Judge Brill yesterday and he was granted a pretrial bond. This is significant because he is currently on state parole in Georgia, and due to the seriousness of his crime the charges usually trigger a state parole violation unless he is cooperating with the government. "
The story is developing and the court documents site is down, naturally. So, we'll keep you posted as anything new pops up.
Mary suspected something was shady about Apollo's secret little backpack…. Kenya Moore just popped a batch of Jiffy Pop and is refreshing the internet every three seconds as we speak.
Before we head off to bed for a few hours, we found a few other snippets online, but haven't had time to really look into it more. And will hold off until we get a chance to see the court documents (hopefully tomorrow).
