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
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."
The Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPeter Thomas was dropping quite a few secrets earlier this week from the red carpet of the Debra Lee PRE dinner, when he spoke to Madame Noire. During his red carpet interview he talked about a RHOA spin-off, the latest on his costar ApolloNida and his brand new Bar One.
Peter Thomas has made no secret of his dreams of having a RHOA spin-off following the guys from Atlanta — Real House Husbands of Atlanta. Although Bravo — or any other network for that matter – has made no announcement, Peter seems to confirm that the show is a go during his interview.
Could be wishful thinking on his part, but a spin-off may be just what the Dr. ordered if rumors that his wife Cynthia Bailey has been axed. But is that the spin-off he is talking about? Because there have been some other spin-off rumors…
And then Apollo Nida got indicted for fraud and Phaedra refused to comply with her deposition in Angela's lawsuit case. Angela's attorney has issued a court order demanding that Phaedra sit for her deposition within 45-days says a judge.
When The Notorious B.I.G. coined the above phrase I'm sure he never envisioned it being so oft quoted. As if Kandi Burruss doesn't have enough drama surrounding her wedding and relationship, she and Todd Tucker are now having last-minute prenup problems.
Last night on Kandi's Wedding the soon-to-be-spouses (we hope!) celebrated their bachelor and bachelorette parties (both sleazy in their own ways) and unfortunately were not able to come to an agreement regarding the prenup which Kandi handed to Bravo's stunt queenTodd's attorney literally 2 days before the nuptials.
Todd's first mistake seems to be hiring NeNe Leakesand Porsha Stewart's former attorney. At this point he's a Bravo employee now, right? Whatever the case he loves messiness as much as his former clients do! He tells Todd he would not sign the prenup as is because there are certain clauses that are down-right unfair and do not protect Todd's long-term interest. For instance there is nothing to protect Todd's assets if he ends up being the main breadwinner in the future, if Kandi dies Todd loses everything, and there's nothing protecting future businesses they may build together.
Last night on Kandi's Wedding it was all out mommy wars! Interestingly, it seems no one in Kandi Burruss' life likes each other. Her Matron of Honor, Tan, and her Maid of Honor, Carmon cannot stand each other, Mama Joyce hates everyone and her new target is Todd Tucker's mother Sharon.
Since everything in Kandi's life is topsy-turvy and it's clear she doesn't use her words to communicate with people, she and Todd visit their pastor for some pre-marital counseling. Todd seems to be taking it seriously, but Kandi initially starts out joking around. Eventually the subject of Joyce comes up and the pastor instructs the couple not to let negative influences destroy their happiness. "Communicate before you disintegrate!"
As Kandi continues to plan her wedding, Carmon and Tan meet with her to test cakes. With all the testiness in the room, Kandi could have been tasting ice cream cake. She ignores it by scarfing down alllll the cake samples and practically licking the plate. I think we call that emotional eating. Basically Carmon thinks Tan is an uptight square who is no fun and Tan thinks Carmon is a flaky boozehound. In the battle of Carmon vs. Tan, I'm team Carmon because who doesn't like fun?
Is divorce is in the air over at the Parks-Nida residence or is Apollo Nida just giving his two cents about prenups?
A good friend of Todd Tucker's, Apollo says he offered Todd advice during this week's episode of Kandi's Wedding because he believes Todd and Kandi Burrussare equals and started out an on even playing field where business savvy is concerned.
Apollo says Todd was feeling stressed out about several situations from his issues with Mama Joyce to planning the wedding that left him feeling out of control. As a friend, Apollo advised him to stand up for himself. The prenup was one area Apollo had experience with given that he too is always accused of being after his wife's money.
