Reality Tea


Mama Joyce needs to eat her words. With news that Apollo Nida was arrested and all of Peter Thomas' shenanigans, it seems like Todd Tucker is a catch! 

In an interview with Essence, Kandi Burruss' mama discusses how she has been portrayed this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta, the truth about Chuck Smith, and her current relationship with Todd!

On how she was edited this season: 

"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. 



This week ended with the news of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida's arrest.  His charges include bank fraud, identity theft, conspiracy, and more.  In an interesting twist, Phaedra Parks took to her Bravo blog to talk about her "awesome" 2013 and hope for a "spectacular" 2014. Um, OK. I will never understand these people!  More photos, recaps, and reality TV news:

OK! Magazine Pre-GRAMMY Party - Arrivals

Last night Real Housewives of the past and present sashayed and twirled down the red carpet at OK! Magazine's pre-grammy party in L.A. 

Joanna Krupa stole the spotlight in this sheer and black gown that reminded of us the revealing dress that Paris Hilton wore the night before to Diddy's own pre-grammy party.  (see below).  Almost all of the ladies of Bravo (and a few VH1 stragglers) wore black, except for Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kenya Moore, who opted for a purple number.  Last night was also Kenya's birthday and we'd be willing to bet her evening included a little birthday toast over the news of Apollo Nida's criminal charges

Also in attendance: former Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Joyce Giraud (whose husbands may be hanging out too often, as they're starting to dress alike), and Couples Therapy star Farrah Abraham.  Also on the carpet: NeNe Leakes and Laura Govan, as well as some of the cast of Vanderpump Rules: Scheana Marie, Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute and others. 

Updated to add new pis of Slade Smiley, Lilly Ghalichi, Jax Taylor and more!



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.
