Now, author Angela Stanton, the woman who may have helped the feds build a case against Nida and Parks, is speaking out for the first time since she went into hiding in September 2013 after receiving death threats.

TI and Tiny

Yesterday, a well-connected insider reached out Sandrarose.com to “confirm” rumors that Atlanta Power Couple T.I. and Tiny had separated on Saturday in Los Angeles. The insider provided Sandrarose.com with information that only someone close to the couple would know. After my post was published, another close friend of T.I. and Tiny reached out to this blog by phone to not only confirm the rumors but to add that there had been tension in the couple’s marriage for nearly a year.

A staged fight on the set of Real Housewives of Atlanta got out of hand when the participants, namely Phaedra Park’s husband Apollo Nida, lost control of the situation. The incident happened at a local hotel where Bravo Network’s producers suggested that the RHOA cast members participate in a pajama party (who does that?) I know this is a difficult concept for some of you to grasp, but please try and remember that everyone in the room draws a paycheck from Bravo — which means they are ALL in on the impending hijinks.

Anyway, the fake fight, which everyone knew was coming, went left when tempers flared and Nida, 35, flipped out on Kenya Moore’s gay “boyfriend”, Brandon. Peter Thomas, who was at the center of the scrum, explained what happened next to S2Smagazine.com magazine.

Phaedra Parks Apollo Nida Gayla St Julien

On Friday, Sandrarose.com broke the news that the husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks was arrested on charges of bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. Apollo Nida, 35, surrendered to U.S. Marshalls and was placed under arrest on Thursday, Jan. 23. Reality TV fans were sent reeling by the news. Dissemination of information was hampered when the PACER servers crashed under the weight of users frantically seeking to confirm details of the arrest.

But even more compelling than the news of Nida’s arrest is the way the feds built their apparently solid case against Nida and his female partner in crime, Gayla O’Neal St. Julien, 44.
