With federal investigators reportedly still digging up dirt on Apollo Nida's accomplices, a judge has granted his request to delay his fraud trial. Lucky, ducky now he has more time to make club appearances before heading to the slammer!
In court documents filed on February 10th the Real Housewives of Atlanta star asked permission to delay his trial until March. Apollo was to begin his trial this month, but he is seeking more time to go over the prosecution's case against him and likely decide whether or not he wants to accept a plea deal. The Judge granted his request.
Throughout the course of her bravo blog, Kenya also repeatedly states that she's not a liar, but um… we all know that's not true, but her assessments of NeNe and Apollo are dead on.
"I considered myself a friend and have always been respectful and supportive of NeNe on and off camera. I ignored all the warnings from the other ladies about how she turns on people she is threatened by or that she feels steals the spotlight from her. However, I give people the benefit of the doubt and had enjoyed becoming friends with her."
Angela is speaking out about Apollo's arrest and shares that she's looking for a media outlet to share some more of her insight into the matter. She writes, "In 2012, I released my personal memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. In the book, I detailed the struggles I faced as a young woman drawn to the temptations of crime and the false glamour it affords. I alone am responsible for the mistakes I made as a young woman. Yet, I have felt a certain sense of anger toward the people who used me during that period of my life. Certain individuals found me at a time when I was vulnerable and searching for friendship, and used those traits to lure me into doing their bidding."
Phaedra Parks and Dwight are hosting their annual 'What the hell is going on but Phaedra certainly never does anything half-assed' celebration. This year it's a naming ceremony for Mr. President.
Dwight really needs to update both his Benz and his facelift – and he also needs to return that blazer to Dorothy Zbornak. Phaedra envisions an "Inaugural Ball" theme for her future leader of the free world. Let's give it up for the first president whose dad is in the slammer. Too soon?
They prance through the grounds discussing their plans for secret service, swing dancers, and miniature tuxedos. And possibly a waterfall-side mother-of-the-president skinny dip twerk. Thankfully that was nixed. These two have such good ideas: are they going to plan a pre-prison inauguration for Apollo before he heads into the Big House?
Cynthia Bailey and La La Anthony were the guests on tonight's Watch What Happens Live. As you can guess, most of the questions were for Cynthia, not only because of Apollo Nida's arrest bombshell, but also because of tonight's epically crazy episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Despite all the attention on RHOA, La La did get a chance to plug her new book, "The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness", which is releasing on Tuesday. I love La La and felt a little bad for her that most of her camera time was spent playing a game filled with questions about the Kardashians, since La La is good friends with Kim. I think La La's plenty interesting on her own, Andy. To her credit, she was a good sport about it.
Andy jumps right in to chat about the shocking arrest of Apollo and asks Cynthia if she has spoken to Phaedra and/or Apollo, "Not a whole lot. I mean, I read about it as well. I don't like to call people when I hear bad news. I like to call people when I hear good news. I think Peter did speak to Apollo earlier today and he said they were taking care of things. Hopefully everything will work out. "
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.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: Mob Wives star Big Ang shared, "LOVE THIS PICTURE! I have to shout out my girls Jenn and Millie of OMJ Productions for always taking such amazing shots of me."
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."
