Real Housewives of Atlanta’sKandi Burruss is hopping mad at co-starPhaedra Parks and did not mince words when she responded via Instagram and Twitter to some incendiary comments made by the attorney against her husband Todd Tucker. The Tuckers, who maintained a close relationship with Phaedra and her now incarcerated husband Apollo Nida have gravitated away from their once tight bond and all over a dispute surrounding the almighty dollar.
Apparently Todd, who is a television production manager, felt he was owed the remaining balance of $8,000 for a pregnancy video he worked on for Phaedra before Apollo’s imprisonment. Todd claims Phaedra never paid him in full and Phaedra insisted that he not only never completed the project but felt she did not owe him any more monies. Well the pair finally got together on last night’s RHOA episode to iron out any misunderstandings. Well after discussing the project and budget, Todd agreed to complete his part and Phaedra agreed, she would in turn, hand over a check to him but implied as an aside, that this will happen whenever she got around to it.
Apollo will serve an 8 year sentence for various financial frauds and also owes about $1.9 million dollars in restitution. His wife Phaedra Parks was not at his sentencing and the couple is reportedly on the brink of divorce, although neither has filed.In fact Apollo himself admitted that he does not think his marriage will be in tact following his prison sentence. “I doubt [that my marriage will survive this]. My wife didn’t even fu**ing show up for my sentencing. I’m still kind of salty about that,” he confessed in an interview last month.
As Apollo Nida's sentencing date draws near – as in TOMORROW! – he is not holding back.
Apparently the soon-to-be-former Real Housewives of Atlanta star has the opposite strategy of Teresa Giudice, who has been keeping a low (and mum) profile to prepare for her sentencing. Apollo, on the other hand, has been giving countless interviews discussing his situation and focusing on drama.
But perhaps since Apollo is facing up to 30 years in prison he just has nothing to lose. “I’m cool, just trying to keep everything in stride. I’m just waiting to get an update from my attorney."
Things haven't been going in Apollo Nida's favor as of late, that's for sure, but could a potential conviction put a kink in wife Phaedra Parks' lifestyle? It's bad enough she may lose her husband to the clink, but what if his alleged actions also put her assets in jeopardy?
We all know the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has a good (and super sassy) head on her shoulders, and as a lawyer she knows how to keep her business from co-mingling with that of her husband's. That knowledge could serve her well in the event he has to serve time. Plus, she's got that mortuary science degree working for her, right?
Since husband Apollo Nida's arrest on fraud charges, the RHOA star has stayed relatively under the radar. However, now she's making her way back into the media to tell us all that she's been oversharing…along with the rest of her cast mates. It's time to dial it back a bit according to Phaedra.
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.
