Reality Tea

In a weird "twist", for lack of a better word, Phaedra Parks posted a new Bravo blog this week, despite the news of Apollo Nida's criminal charges.  I say weird because lately the only Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member writing a weekly blog after the show has been Kenya Moore (here and there a few of the others do, but not often). 

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.

Have you heard? There's a new show called Farrah's Therapy on VH1. It's a cross between Teen Mom Horror Story and Couples (Table For One) Therapy. The star of the show universe, Farrah Abraham, pretends to cry, makes ugly faces, and blames all of her problems on the strangers living in her house, as well as her parents, while a doctor by the name of Jenn Berman enables her. 

Seriously, if VH1 wanted to cash in on the tragedy that is Farrah, why not just create a new show around her? Porn Stars Therapy or Celebrity Liars Rehab?

But I digress. It's day five in the Couples Therapy house. Sada Bettencourt and Whitney Mixter watch Backdoor Teen Mom and come to realize it's not a homemade sex tape. Not even close! It's a fully produced porn film. Whitney says she's not judging the Teen Mom star for having sex on camera, as she's been there, done that – but she has zero patience for Farrah's "sex tape" lies.

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).

Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - January 23, 2014

Kim Kardashian is back from Paris, y'all.  The reality starlet got off a plane and basically headed right over to Jimmy Kimmel Live to attempt to save the sinking ship that is Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Kim yapped with Jimmy about her wedding to Kanye West, her show, Khloe Kardashian's attempts to get pregnant and much more.  We'll get to that in a minute.  First we need to chat about Kim's outfit.  Kim is currently obsessed with showing off her post-baby midriff in two piece ensembles.  She looked beautiful in this pink Dior, but it probably would've been much more classy if she had left it in tact!  Yes, Kim chopped what was once a gorgeous dress into this two piece mess.  Her style team cut the dress in half and made into what you see here. 

Don't get me wrong, she looks really good in pink and the outfit is far from one of her worst.  In fact, I'd probably say it's one of her better looks.  But why can't this woman ever leave designer threads alone and just wear them as they were intended?

With the errrrmmm… success of Kyle By AleneToo, Kyle Richards is creating kaftans for the masses. 

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently announced that she'll be debuting her first clothing line on HSN. The Bravo Home Shopping Network kontinues. 

On February 25, Kyle's first line, an eight-piece collection called "Kyle by Kyle Richards", will launch. Describing it as "relaxed glamour" aka mumus, Kyle says that it will channel the "chic, California cool vibe" that echos her own closet. <insert hysterical laughter here>

Kyle is especially excited to debut her classic one-sleeved jumpsuit! "The fabric literally feels like pajamas," Kyle gushes to Entertainment Weekly. "I always wear it at home when I’m entertaining because I don’t want to be in a tight, uncomfortable dress. I can also wear it on a red carpet. In fact, I just wore it in blue on The Arsenio Hall Show. I also love the jacket with embellished sleeves. I get so many compliments on it. I have friends already asking me for that one."

Kandi Burruss' mother does not like her fiance Todd Tucker! Proving that she is indeed a "bad bitch" Kandi is turning Mama Joyce's criticisms into expanding her empire!

First the Real Housewives of Atlanta star wrote, co-directed, and produced a play (possibly heading to broadway soon!) called A Mother's Love about dealing with mamas who do not support their daughter's choices and now Kandi wrote a new song called "Let Them Love". 

Kandi's song is now available on iTunes and it's really good! 

In other Kandi business, interestingly she shares a stylist with former friend, whom she is now suing, Kim Zolciak! Kandi has recently been posting photos of Shun Melson (who also regularly appears on Don't Be Tardy) styling her for various events – including a recent appearance on Bethenny and for promoting her new song. Hmmm… Hmmmmm… what do we make of this?
