“Apollo And Phaedra, It’s Time For You To Get Off Reality TV”: Wendy Williams On Apollo’s Legal Trouble
This has been a tough week or so for Apollo Nida. When he wasn’t scrappin’ on television with Brandon, he was dealing with all the media attention on him after he was arrested for bank fraud, identity theft, embezzlement and more. Everyone seemed to be talking about that this weekend, including Wendy Williams. She took to her Hot Topics segment to share her two cents on the situation with her audience, and she says, Phaedra and her husband need to get off TV and get their lives together (especially since people think Phaedra knew what was going on with all his dirty dealings).
“It’s really bad…Phaedra’s husband Apollo was reportedly arrested and charged with bank fraud and I.D. theft. He allegedly created fake companies and a fake bank account under real people’s names. He allegedly stole retirement checks from Delta Airline employees, and you know when you open your newspaper and it says, ‘unclaimed money, claim your money’? He was claiming other people’s unclaimed money, allegedly. And collecting checks of people who hadn’t claimed theirs allegedly. Apollo’s fradulent accounts reportedly total more than $3 million dollars.
Apollo and Phaedra, it’s time for you to get off reality TV. It’s really bad…he’s accused of being a real criminal. I mean, you know he did five years in the pen for real criminal stuff. Forging stuff…And then we did a little poll here if Phaedra knew anything about it and we all came to the conclusion that in our minds, well of course she did. Those Bravo checks aren’t big enough to buy a new funeral home and clothes for Mr. President and clothes for the other baby and live that life. Somebody needed a job from someplace and Apollo, the only thing I ever see him doing is fixing things around the house. That’s good though, but that’s not what’s paying the bills unless you’re going to start a Mr. Fix It company and fix stuff around other people’s house and get paid. Apollo…we’re watching you, boy.”
There have also been rumors circulating that since these new allegations against Apollo came out, and actually way back in September after Apollo had his car searched and laptop seized by federal officials, Phaedra and Apollo have been at odds, and that she kicked him out. The rumors claim that Phaedra is only appearing with Apollo at media events and that they’re just co-parenting and trying to make things work for the kids. If this is true, it honestly wouldn’t be a shock because I know all this heat on her family and people saying that she was in on his crimes has to be a lot for the mother of two. Not to mention that on the show he acts very immaturely towards her at times. But we’ll just wait and see what happens.
Do you think they need to get off reality TV and handle their issues privately as Wendy suggested?
