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.
For comparison’s sake, part three of the season 6 reunion logged 4.29 million viewers and the season 6 average was 3.87 million viewers. While the decline is troublesome, IMHO, Real Housewives of Atlanta still brings more viewers to Bravo than the others in the franchise. Case in point: this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York attracted just 1.385 million viewers.
Nearly every reality star who will have a job next season showed up yesterday for the E! and Bravo Upfronts in NYC. The Kardashians, the Real Housewives and so many more showed up to give advertisers a glimpse of what’s to come on the networks over the next few months.
Kenya Moore was on hand (and even posed with Patti Stanger, so clearly things are fine between them after the marriage debacle of this week) and so was NeNe Leakes – wearing the same top as Giuliana Rancic! Kim Zolciak was there but we didn’t get any red carpet shots of her and daughter Brielle, but hopefully some of those will be up later this morning!
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore paid up her debt to actressJanet Hubert, it seems! Janet took to Facebook today to say that Kenya had finally paid up the rest of the money she was owed for her role on “Life Twirls On,” which aired on the “Facebook network” last week, in case you missed it. But Janet also slams her for more shady behavior, including putting the wrong address on the check.
“I always like to be true to myself and speak from my heart and I hope that you will feel me and that I don’t offend you. My exterior may come off tough to some but my heart is made of pure gold! I have overcome and conquered things that would have broken the average person,” NeNe begins.
And because of all of this, NeNe’s breakdown was genuine. “My breakdown didn’t just come out of no where like some would like for you to think!”
But Kenya got busted when it emerged that James actually got married last month… to another woman. His real life wife is Jaimi Gregory and she claims the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star was using her man as a publicity stunt even when James told her he wasn’t interested in playing along!
We can’t talk about part three of the reunion and not talk about NeNe Leakes. About the breakdown, Claudia shared, “When NeNe walked off, initially I wasn’t sure what was going on to be honest. I did notice she seemed to be trembling, so I knew she was definitely feeling something very real to her. I just didn’t know what had set her off at that point. So at first I was a little taken back. I had never seen her cry, but we are all human and everyone has their breaking point.”
