Will Phaedra Be There? Apollo Nida Must Report To Federal Prison To Start 8-Year Sentence On September 10

August 28, 2014  |  


On September 10, at noon, RHOA husband Apollo Nida must report to federal prison to begin serving an eight-year sentence.

According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Nida will travel to Lexington, Kentucky to surrender himself at the FMC Lexington Prison. Nida could have faced up to 30 years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft, but was sentenced to just eight. Since then, things have been difficult for him, as he was hit with a $1.9 million lien in restitution and as a penalty over his involvement in a massive fraud ring.

And it seems that his relationship with Phaedra Parks is on thin ice. She’s already back filming “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (the ladies are currently filming in Puerto Rico) and the two haven’t been seen together since the reunion show. Some women escort their partners to the facility when it’s time to surrender, but we doubt that Parks will take the trip.  Nida felt some type of way about his wife not even being present for his sentencing:

“I doubt [that my marriage will survive this]. My wife didn’t even fu**ing show up for my sentencing. I’m still kind of salty about that.”

But Nida says that he is sorry about hurting his family and others. Specifically, he’s sad that he won’t be around for his sons (though he often only mentions Aiden and not Dylan):

“I’m still human. At the end of the day, I am remorseful. Coming from a non-father, non-mother background, I feel most sad and disappointed that I let my little man down. But at the end of the day, it is what it is. You must go and pay and contribute to the piper and do what you gotta do and come on back and be graceful about it.”

    Phaedra is not innocent and in fact may be the backbone in these criminal activities. Phaedra thought that because she went to law school no one would suspect her of being crooked or stupid. The self proclaim “southernbelle” turned out to be a ratchet hoodrat that took it to a the completely different level by going to college. Most people think going to college equates to class, but it doesn’t. CLass, in my opinion is an ethical, moral and spirual lifestyle. The only difference between Phaedra and them hoodrats on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta is that she is licensed to be crooked. Dumb people go to college for degrees smart people go for the education.

  • Kenya can work a damn nerve at times, but what Phaedra said to Kenya at the reunion IN DEFENSE OF THAT DISASTER she calls a husband what dead wrong, & all of it is coming back to bite her in the derriere!! If anything, Phaedra’s just trying to save face now!

    • meme

      How is that biting Phaedra? She’s not the one going to jail.

      • Cause their sons are gonna be suffering since she took pride in having someone like Apollo for a husband/father for her kids!

  • Norah

    What a shame.

  • He is sooooo hot!!! ( I digress) Oh, and I can’t even imagine how it must feel to go to jail for 8 years!

    • precious

      Just show how stupid you are theirs a ax murder looking hunky for you too! their think he’s hot too if not separated by the population he’ll be living with! then be another fool and wait for him seems this turns you idiots on! there are plenty of hot jail baits waiting for people like you go take your pick!then in a couple of months or whatever if your alive,not beaten,rape tortured then come back and tell is how you feel again about these hot bloodies(hm)?keep thinking as you do your get your chance for someone will set you up big time your have more than 8 years!

      • Okay… Well ….I don’t want him or any criminal but he is hot.. Sorry, its true!

  • n2ravs

    I love Apollo because he is sooo openly stupid…but that’s why opposites attract…not necessarily saying Phaedra is that smart…but seems to be real greedy…just sayin’…

  • If she does decide to divorce him, I wouldn’t blame her BUT he was a criminal when she get pregnant and they got married so this isn’t shocking. Hopefully she’s able to stay strong for her babies.

  • Lissa329

    I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if they are already “quietly divorced”. I just can’t see Phaedra hanging on…for 8 yrs.

    • Yvette

      I agree.

    • Lele

      I see that happening, but I feel more bad for the kids. The boys are not old enough to remember this she should have just quietly left the show but instead acting like the Giudices on NJ acting like nothing is wrong.

    • Norah

      Wonder if their marriage vows said, “for better or for worse till death do you part…”

      • hollyw

        Psssh please, their marriage isn’t even as old as their oldest son, she ain’t riding or dying for nobody…

        • meme

          actually she rode with him the first time. Dont know what would be different this time.

          • hollyw

            The first time was when she MET him lol. I feel like that is different. If even her husband can publicly say she probably won’t, is not looking good…Anyhoo, only time will tell.

  • Laura

    Wait… he has 2 sons… or am I missing something???

    • Yvette

      Yes he has 2 sons. Aiden and Dylan.

      • mosesknowses

        Aiden is Nida’s son, Dylan was fathered by another man. Parks is well known for her advocation of open marriage. She is rumoured to hold various party events in her underground sex dungeon beneath her BuckHead estate on a regular basis.
