Apollo Nida

Phaedra Apollo RHOA Mexico Cheating

Apollo Nida was giving yet another interview – this time to Be100 – and, as always, didn’t hold anything back.  The Real Housewives of Atlanta star drops a few shocking drops of tea.  His restitution initially started at $14 million.  He doesn’t think his marriage to Phaedra Parks will survive.  And he says there were others involved in the fraud dealings, but he took the brunt of the fall.

When asked how the sentencing has affected his family life, Apollo says “It’s hell. Hell on wheels. I’ve asked god to forgive me.  I’ve forgiven myself.  I had to move on.  From there I just had to bite down, I was going through so much.  It doesn’t make you less of a man to cry and shed tears. I’ve shed tears. I’m just upset at how I was raised and to possibly be taking my son through the same thing. But by the grace of God he’s still young and we have many years ahead of us. I just can’t make those same mistakes. It’s all on me.”  

He continues, “a lot of people could be held accountable, but at the end of the day, it’s over with now. We’ll pay back the $1.9 million and keep going.  By the grace of God I was able to get that down. It [restitution] was $14 million.”

It’s no secret that the entire Real Housewives of Atlanta cast is not only back, but they’ve already started filming for the seventh season.

It’s also no secret that Phaedra Parks marriage to Apollo Nida is, shall we say, on the rocks! While Apollo was getting sentenced for federal financial fraud and looking forward to 8 years in prison plus repaying $1.9 million in restitution, Phaedra was on vacation with Kandi Burruss

Despite the fractures in the marriage, including that Phaedra and Apollo are practicing for prison living apart, the two were spotted filming a scene with their two sons Ayden and Dylan

The verdict is in for Apollo Nida’s restitution amount in his bank fraud case and it’s staggering (but probably less he deserves).  The Real Housewives of Atlanta star owes his victims a total of $1.9 million and, as we reported earlier, was sentenced to eight years in prison

The order was entered this week and a breakdown reveals that Apollo’s largest amounts will go to JP Morgan Chase Bank (828,000), Campus USA Credit Union (277,000), and UP2Drive BMW Bank (100,000). 

“Based on the consent motion of the parties and the court’s review of the record in this matter, the court directs defendant Apollo E. Nida to pay restitution to the Clerk of Court I the total amount of $1,948.214.85. This amount is due and payable immediately.  Restitution is payable jointly and severally with the restitution order to be entered in United States v. Gayla O’Neal St. Julien, 1:13-CR-00403-CAP.”

Some Real Housewives of Atlanta fans can’t get enough details and info on Apollo Nida’s fraud case and prison sentence.  For those people/fans, we now have the court documents that spell out the terms of Apollo’s guilty plea and the probation highlights, too. 

Apollo pled guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud – all other charges were dismissed.  Apollo was sentenced to 96 months in prison, but he may get out early if he attends a drug rehabilitation program during his stint in the big house.

According to court docs filed last week, Apollo will be on supervision for five years after he’s released.  The terms of his supervision are pretty standard, with community service hours to be served, no hanging out with other felons, etc.   Apollo also can’t open any new credit cards or lines of credit without approval and more. 

Also worth noting is that Apollo will pay restitution.  The amount will be decided at a later date, but the court waives the cost of his incarceration and no fine has to be paid.

I was almost as interested in learning Apollo Nida‘s sentence as I was in hearing Kenya Moore‘s reaction. I was expecting something priceless, with props, and tons of shade! Maybe a new song – Gone With The Wind – In Prison Stripes?

However, Kenya, much to her credit, kept her response subdued and classy, tweeting: “You can’t kick someone while they’re down even if they’re trying to trip you. Offer them a hand instead. #KillThemWithKindness.” Wait – isn’t that a Phaedra Parks-ism? #Kidding

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.

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.

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."
