While Apollo Nida currently bides his time in prison, when he gets out he’ll be on the hook for a whopping $1.9 million in federal restitution. While Apollo was being investigated and before he went to prison Feds were on the lookout for Apollo’s money – which did not come from his wife Phaedra Parks but by Bravo Media and True Entertainment!
According to court documents the Feds believed Real Housewives Of Atlanta producers and Bravo Media were holding assets for Apollo and not releasing the monies because they would automatically be confiscated by the Feds.
Phaedra had taken steps towards filing for divorce from Apollo, but recently revealed she is “still married” and will not comment on potential progress in that department, although she has not visited Apollo in prison, nor taken their sons to visit him. Many theorize that Phaedra is waiting to sort out financial matters and until RHOA stops airing and the drama dies-down to bring less attention to the matter. Her latest RHOA blog seems to support this notion.
NeNe Leakes wants it known that she is NOT. GOING. ANYWHERE… unless confronted by fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta co-stars! Weighing in on the season and her new pal Phaedra Parks‘ possible divorce, NeNe advises Phaedra to follow her heart, meanwhile Kenya Moore suggests Phaedra is actually following viewer’s opinion when it comes to her divorce from Apollo Nida!
“Whatever goes on in Phaedra’s home is between her and Apollo – we don’t have to sleep with Apollo at night,” NeNe adds. Well, neither does Phaedra – at least not for the next 6 or 7 years (depending on good behavior).
When asked if she saw NeNe in Cinderella, Phaedra said, “I most certainly did see NeNe on Broadway, and she was absolutely fantastic, as you would expect. Her performance was dazzling and I was particularly impressed with how she made the role her own. It can be difficult to portray such a well-known character, let alone add your own style and flair to such an established role.”
Kenya explained her emotional reaction to the gossip about Phaedra and Mr. Chocolate. She added that she felt vindicated once again. “I’d moved on and forgave Phaedra for all of the lies she single handedly fabricated about me,” she insisted. “When Cynthia told me of Apollo’s latest findings, I didn’t doubt it, as I have experienced what she is capable of first hand. My emotional reaction was based on anger not pain. I thought, ‘The nerve of her!’ She went on a slut shaming, whore-calling campaign without any proof, and now that Apollo caught her with sticky fingers dipped in chocolate, I felt vindicated yet again. I don’t care about their relationship or how many men Phaedra chooses to sleep with, that is her cross to bear.”
Porsha Williams is remaining loyal to Phaedra Parks and calling out Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore for spreading rumors about Phaedra allegedly cheating with the latest mysterious African, Mr. Chocolate. Porsha describes Cynthia’s actions as “awful” and warns her – karma is a’comin! Hasn’t karma already arrived and been calling itself “Peter“?
Accusing Cynthia of being “beyond out of line,” Porsha expected Cynthia to display some compassion to her fellow Real Housewives Of Atlanta co-star. “Cynthia has a daughter and husband herself; if it were her family being ripped apart she would expect nothing but prayer and support. However, she decided to completely try to slander and tear down a fellow sister at her toughest hour!”
“Some people love to criticize me for having an opinion about Phaedra and Apollo or anyone else on the show at this point, as if somehow it is never any of my business. Despite the fact that this is a show where we discuss our issues, thoughts, and observations of one another,” said Kenya. “We may not agree, but I am entitled to and allowed to provide my input. We may not agree, however, no one and nothing is off limits when the issues are put out there for public consumption.” I agree. Blogs about the episode are part of the HWs job.
