Apollo Nida sat down with Sister2Sister magazine for their May issue and laid it all out there! Probably a little more than he should have, but that's what reality stars do, right? Apollo dished on everything from his past and how he got started in a life of crime. He talks prison life, his marriage status with Phaedra Parks, and the new criminal complaint against him.
We've grabbed some of the highlights, but we highly recommend picking up a copy of the magazine because it's an interesting read! It's six pages long and I tried to squeeze as much as I could in, but trust me – you want to read it in its entirety!
Apollo starts off talking about his mother OD'ing on heroin when he was just seven years old. He says she had it tough because she was a German woman shunned for being in a relationship with a black man. He met his father around age 20 but didn't have anything to do with that side of his family. "She was kind of pushed out. So she turned to the streets. And the streets will eat you up."
I say "final" statement because this is the last we're going to share on this. It seems the family of Gayla St. Julien isn't on the same page in regard to her quotes about the case and her position on Apollo Nida's guilt, etc, so we're posting this last statement for fairness' sake and that's that. The previous statement we shared came from Gayla's God daughter. This new statement is from "the family of Gayla". We're posting it in its entirety – grammar mistakes are not ours. And sorry about the caps, but I wasn't about to rewrite that whole statement.
Apollo Nida's "right hand man", aka Gayla St. Julien, was sentenced last week for her part in the criminal activity she and Apollo were involved in (still alleged on Apollo's part at the moment?). We were holding off writing about it until we had some further information to share, but tonight Gayla sent us an email (via her God daughter) laying out her thoughts and dropping a few tidbits as she begins her five year prison term.
Gayla wanted to set the record straight, "To all the people who hide behind keyboards with negative comments and opinions. To the individuals who know nothing of my life or struggles. Apollo sat in the back of Judge Pannells' court room the look of fear on his face awaiting my fate which will soon be his fate. As of April 23, 2014 was a day of new beginnings for me I took full responsibility for my actions. I DID NOT testify against Apollo."
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.
Hate, hate, hate, hate, hate! And twirl! Kenya Moore must have been a giant oak tree in a former life because she is all about the shade. Why is she even on Real Housewives of Atlanta if she can't stand all her co-stars? Nevermind. Stupid question…as if being friends is a prerequisite for any of the RHOA ladies!
I'm not sure if Kenya is attempting to channel her inner NeNe Leakes with recent venom-filled retorts, but she proves to be mildly entertaining. Calling out Porsha Stewart, the Neenster, and Phaedra Parks, Kenya proves that there is only one Krayonce, and she has her own personal brand of crazy!
What's better than housewife has beens when it comes to rating gold on Watch What Happens Live? That's right…house-husbands! When two former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars appeared in Andy Cohen's clubhouse, the ladies garnered the talk show's second highest ratings for the year thus far…and no one even had to tug a wig!
First of all the Real Housewives of Atlanta star wants to clear up the notion that she intruded on the guys-only cigars and tequila party with her inappropriate comments. "All the women were invited to the lounge, but of course they were all late so Lawrence and I joined them. I did have an ulterior motive in hanging out with them and that was to get the truth out of Apollo [Nida]," Kenya admits in her Bravo blog.
"You catch a rat with peanut butter not salt. Once they were relaxed, it was my moment. I wanted an admission of guilt, an apology, and a resolution from Apollo and I succeeded," Kenya explains. "As a result of me being non-threatening, Apollo admitted that he felt he could have slept with me yet I never offered him sex ('I can say how I feel you don’t have to offer.')"
Kenya Moore has crowned herself the Shade Queen and we have to admit that she may have earned that title this season and via her no-holds-barred blogs. In her newest blog, theReal Housewives of Atlanta star once again doesn't hold back about this week's episode, calling out her co-stars.
Kenya blasts NeNe Leakes, dishes on Porsha Stewart's beard situation with Kordell Stewart and talks about the apology she is expecting from Apollo Nida. Here are some highlights from this week's shady-palooza. She dishes a special brand of bitchy for Phaedra Parks.
She titles her first section "THE MOOSE IS ON THE LOOSE". "What grown woman threatens her friend to discontinue being friends with them because they don’t like him or her? I felt bad for Marlo, because she was always a good friend of NeNe’s and her biggest supporter and she really hurt her feelings. And the way she cursed out Cynthia who simply tried talking to her about Marlo… I thought her stripper days were behind her, but she is really showing her ass. They are both better off without her."
