Real Housewives of Atlanta fans know that the ladies have what it takes to be over the top when it comes to being petty. Case in point, NeNe Leakes. She is a shade master. Just when you think you know where NeNe stands and who her friends are, she does something to completely negate that.
Somewhat recently, NeNe was very vocal about her desire to get Phaedra Parks back on Real Housewives of Atlanta. Seemingly, she wanted to offset the Kenya Moore return since both NeNe and Phaedra have Kenya in common as a long-time enemy. However, that’s probably gonna be a tough sell for the network since Phaedra was fired after she started rumors that Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams.
Well, that was quick. Apollo Nida, ex-husband of former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, was released from prison in early June. He had been serving time after being arrested for identity theft, bank fraud, and other charges. While his biggest crime might have been getting married to Phaedra in the first place, he does share two beautiful children with her. The couple began divorce proceedings in 2014. Phaedra has since moved on with Tone
Loc Kapone and Apollo is currently engaged. Also, has Phaedra ever dated anyone named Bob or does she have a thing about unusual first names?
Apollo was originally supposed to “go asunder” for 8 whole years, but had his pokey term reduced by one year. At the beginning of June, Apollo was back on the streets with
next ex-wife fiance, Sherien Almufti. Apparently, their love of being reunited was not strong enough to conquer Apollo’s rebel spirit. Either that or he missed his meals being served on a cafeteria tray.
Much has happened since Apollo Nida appeared on Real Housewives of Atlanta. His wife, Phaedra Parks, filed for, and was granted, a divorce from him. But not so fast! Apollo contested the divorce. He said that he never signed the documents, and that his name was spelled incorrectly. The divorce was reversed. Since Phaedra is an attorney, that must be embarrassing. And awkward. Their divorce was finally settled in 2017. The couple shares two sons together.
Of course, Phaedra lost her RHOA peach after Season 9 because of the horrible rumors that she spread that co-stars Kandi Burruss and her husband, Todd Tucker, supposedly wanted to drug and sexually assault Porsha Williams. That debacle was the final nail in the coffin of Phaedra’s time as a Housewife. Well, at least she has more time to devote to her careers as a funeral director/lawyer.
Joe Giudice is not the first Real Housewives husband to serve time. That honor belongs to Apollo Nida, the ex-husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Phaedra Parks. Apollo is currently serving an 8-year prison sentence for identity theft and bank fraud. He and Phaedra share two young sons.
Apollo managed to get engaged in prison to Sherien Almufti. Since then Sherien has become Apollo’s very public mouthpiece. She claimed Phaedra won’t let the boys visit Apollo in prison. Sherien even appeared at the opening of the OLG Restaurant. Then Sherien revealed that she’d be making an appearance on season 10 of Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta. We hoped Sherien had a good storage bag for that wedding gown because Apollo was only 3.5 years into his sentence at the time.
Even though Phaedra Parks is not a cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta and her ex-husband Apollo Nida is locked up in prison there is still some very public drama between the two of them. Shamefully, I wish this was all playing out on TV, but that’s just me being selfish.
Cue Apollo’s fiancee Sherien Almufti. Yes, he managed to get engaged behind bars somehow. Anyway, this woman has taken it upon herself to be Apollo’s spokesperson and has taken yet another opportunity to shade Phaedra in a very public manner.
Is Apollo Nida planning waaaay ahead for his wedding to Sherien Almufti, or is dude pretending he’s getting out of prison sometime soon? Because Sherien recently revealed that she’ll be making an appearance on this season’s Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta. Let’s just hope she has a very good storage bag for that wedding gown…
Apollo is 3.5 years into an 8 year prison sentence for fraud, and one year out of his marriage to Phaedra Parks, but Apollo was dating (and engaged with a paper towel-made ring to) Sherien long before he and Phaedra made things official. Last season Sherien even made an appearance on Real Housewives Of Atlanta when she showed up to the soft opening of Kandi’s Old Lady Gang restaurant.
There is just so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Obviously, health and happiness are high up on the list, but somewhere after the main priorities in life, the dedicated TV viewers are thankful for their favorite reality stars. Aside from spending time with family and devouring delicious foods, there’s no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by enjoying some reality star photos in the latest edition of Instagram Roundup. It’s also a lot better than indulging in awkward or boring conversation with your least favorite relatives.
There were just so many random (and juicy) things going on this week! Real Housewives of New Jersey pot stirrer Kim D was hanging out with former cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Amber Marchese
to talk shit about Teresa at a friend’s baby shower. Love & Hip Hop star Joseline Hernandez shared a photo with her and Cynthia Bailey’s ex husband Peter Thomas. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent shared a selfie from church (yes, you read that correctly) and she even made it to Kathy Wakile’s pizza restaurant in New Jersey- if that is not the most random pairing in the world, then I don’t know what is. Oh wait, yes I do: Whitney Sudler-Smith at a baby shower with Reese Witherspoon. I have so many questions about that one.
Check out the most interesting photos from the last week in the gallery below!
