We’re still waiting for the “official” sentencing information, but early reports indicate that Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight years in prison for identity theft, conspiracy, and fraud.   He reportedly won’t have to surrender until a later date.  We’ll keep updating as the news finally trickles out of the courtroom this afternoon.  His mom was present for the sentencing, but Phaedra Parks was not.

Apollo’s sentence is for  96 months (8 years) – he was initially facing 30 years.

Apollo got a much shorter prison term because he cooperated (aka ratted out others) with the Feds.

Lisa Rinna joins RHOBH

Season 5 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is getting really crowded.

Lisa Vanderpump, Yolanda Foster, and Kyle Richards are confirmed cast members, Kim Richards and Brandi Glanville have been seen filming and are assumed to be returning, and Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, and Shiva Safaiare rumored participants.

That’s 7 1/2 already – I mean, Kim? Seriously? Let’s just give her a half.

Now rumor has it that Lisa Rinna has joined the cast as well. Reportedly, ABC has approached Lisa about The View, but she couldn’t resist Bravo‘s charm. Or something. Around this time last year Lisa stated that she wouldn’t ever join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Today is not a good day for Apollo Nida!

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is scheduled to receive his sentence after pleading guilty to several counts of financial fraud – and apparently that’s not the only bad news! A property Apollo purchased in Atlanta sold in a foreclosure auction.

If you’re going Huh? – you’re not alone! It seems like Apollo owned a mystery property – once which we did not live in with Phaedra Parks and their two sons.

OK! Magazine's

Kathy Wakile is experiencing one of the serious side effects of reality TV – everyone feels they have license to comment on your life! 

I have to feel some sympathy for the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey because they seem to get the negative comments more than any other Housewives bunch. Apparently Kathy has had enough and announced on Facebook she is taking a break.

shannon and vicki dance on the bar in mexico

Last night in on Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki took everything she learned from watching Oprah and Couples Therapy and put it to good use on Shannon Beador's imploding marriage and Tamra Barney's bad friend ways. The result… dare I say, was successful-ish. Vicki Gunvalson, Love Tank Whisperer? You know what they say: those who can't do, teach! 

After Shannon holds up dinner for hours and hours with a crying whining meltdown on the beach (I hope she didn't get sand in her eyes), over her marital discord, she and David agree to try and get along on the trip if David would agree to switch to organic tequila. Of course, in secret, David called the authorities and started the process for a 5150 psychiatric hold for Shannon. Then he chugged his tequila – and suddenly all Brooks Ayers' words of Hallmark wisdom (seriously how many Lifetime Movies does this guy watch?!) made sense. Brooks toasted to forgetting the past because we know he wants errrryone to forget his and they all headed to Andeles, Vicki's Mecca.

Last night on Ladies of London new allegiances were formed while old ones frayed. Showergate continued. And Noelle Reno was somehow in the middle of all of it. Just the way she likes it.

And we’re back in Mapperton. It’s the morning after the Bambi dinner. Caroline Stanbury, Juliet Angus, and Marissa Hermer convene in Noelle’s room at the Lodge. Juliet reports that Caprice Bourret has already checked out. The other three are surprised. Caroline thinks it’s due to her and her new friendships with the American women. She can’t help it if they think she’s fab, Caprice. Juliet starts bagging on Caprice (and Brits in general), but Marissa doesn’t want to take sides. She thinks Caprice left early because of her pregnancy. Juliet claims she was the nicest person ever when she was pregnant. Marissa wishes she would have known her back then. Boom. Awkward silence.

erica p scrappy fight lhh atl

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta was at the top of its game last night. From Benzino acknowledging that he’s a bit neck deprived to a fight that we didn’t get to see, peppered with some of the best one-liners we’ve heard in a while. It was awesome.

The episode starts with Kalennaand Ashley tearing it up at the strip club. Of course it does. Kalenna has been shirking her recording duties, but Ashley’s getting super possessive about Kalenna focusing on anything other than her. Ashley has even stolen Kalenna’s phone so her husband can’t contact her. When Ashley finally allows Kalenna to call Tony, she’s over their fun times. Kalenna needs to get back in the studio. Also focusing on her career is Tammy Rivera who is hosting a fashion presentation to celebrate the launch of her new clothing line. Both Rasheeda Frost and KarlieRedd are in attendance, and WakaFlocka Flame couldn’t be more proud of his fiancee. I so wish he got more air time! While we aren’t treated to many of her pieces, what I see I really like. Tammy even agrees to elope with Waka instead of having a big wedding.

porsha stewart williams the view red

Well Porsha Stewart has certainly figured out what this reality star business is all about…her brand! The once timid-acting Real Housewives of Atlanta star has learned to stir it up with reunion brawls, a drama-fueled public divorce, a music single (what housewife hasn't tried to sing?), and any product that will let her put her name and face on it. I'd say she's arrived for sure!

Porsha's latest endeavor is a far cry from the demure persona she portrayed on her freshman season. Y'all remember that Porsha, right? Taking a page out of her nemesis Kenya Moore's playbook, Porsha has decided to turn up the sex appeal with a new lingerie line. Bless her heart.
