Apollo Nida Is Remorseful For His Crimes; Talks Marriage To Phaedra Parks

Apollo Nida & Phaedra Parks RHOA S6 Reunion

Oh lawd – Duct Tape By Bravo? Paging Andy Cohen! Please get Apollo Nida to keep it closed – or not! 

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star recently sat down with Atlanta's V-103 Radio Station where he discussed his upcoming court case, his wife Phaedra Parks' involvement, and what's happening now in his marriage. Oh Apollo – my how I love your rambles. And the fact that you're sporting sunglasses inside the entire time. Did Phaedra smack you again?

Apollo says that despite pleading guilty to mail fraud, wire fraud and bank fraud charges that does not affect the goodness of his character. Uh huh. "It doesn't take away from my character and who I am as a person, I mean people make mistakes."


Interestingly Apollo goes on to directly state he opened shell corporation and fraudulent bank accounts – I mean, I guess after pleading guilty there is no point and pretending to be innocent! Ahem… Teresa Giudice

As for how he went from incarcerated, to living the high life, to a criminal again, Apollo rambles about the grass not being greener on the other side  and no one understanding his life until they walk in his shoes. "I make my own way. At the end of the day, reality TV can really be pressure points." Apollo states, "I have no answers because every answer that I come up with someone is always going to say that's not a good enough answer." Gee… being held accountable for fraud is soooooo hard! Poor Apollo. 

"I did it. I said I did it. Now I will pay the price," Apollo continues. And he admits the price he will pay is high. "I hurt tremendously. At the end of the day, I'm so remorseful. What hurts me the most that I could potentially be leaving my sons." Apollo cites his relationship with Ayden and his worries that when his son calls for him he might not be there. 

As for his marriage, Apollo confesses that he worries Phaedra will not stand by him. "Hypothetically… Hypothetically people, let's just say my wife wants to go somewhere else and another man would be in my household. And I don't want that for my child." 

"Apollo's never had a handout from day one. So whatever she [Phaedra] has, she has. Apparently the prenup says she can keep what she has. If I feel like the checks are not being distributed equally – you gotta do what you gotta do. You could say, 'Go get a regular job', but at the end of the day, is that paycheck gonna be equivalent to what's coming in the household?" Huh?

"I can't sit here and downplay my wife. She has the most impeccable business model. But the dynamics of marriage are different than the dynamics of a friend. The dynamics of a business partner is different than husband and wife. What goes on in my household – people don't see."

"It's been four years on that show and I feel like it's been a milk session. I have been [Kenya's] storyline. If it's not Walter, it's me. And Walter left and it's back to me. Everybody's been riding for free, but what about when Apollo needs something?"

Apollo credits Phaedra's mother, Miss Bell, for sustaining their marriage thus far because she has encouraged Phaedra and Apollo to have patience. 

"In the courtroom, when I took my plea, it was announced that Phaedra was completely exonerated from any involvement." As for the future of his marriage with Phaedra, Apollo goes back adn forth but insists the couple is still living together. He also implies, oddly, that he's looking for alternatives to prison. #KeepDreaming

"At the end of the day, don't do as I do," Apollo warns fans!
