Last night’s episode of RHOA featured more fake fights and manufactured drama for TV ratings. Watch the full episode after the break.
Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Apollo Nida is working on a plea deal with the federal government to avoid a trial, according to the AJC’s Rodney Ho (via Radar Online).
Any plea deal will involve prison time for Nida who was arrested in January and charged with bank fraud and identity theft.
Nida’s wife, Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Phaedra Parks will represent him in court.
Embattled local attorney Phaedra Parks, far left, appeared at a deposition for Angela Stanton, right, author of the tell-all book, Lies of a Real Housewife, in Gwinnett County earlier this week. Parks is suing Stanton for defamation after Stanton alleged that Parks was the mastermind behind an auto theft ring that operated in Atlanta.
As I told you previously, Parks refused Stanton’s attorney’s request to appear at her own deposition to provide evidence that Stanton defamed her.
According to a confidential source, Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas have reportedly retained a high-powered attorney.
I have no idea if Bailey and Thomas retained an attorney to combat rumors that he, along with another Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member, are named in the federal indictment charging RHOA cast member Apollo Nida with bank and identity fraud.
Ex-convict Apollo Nida seems to be taking his latest brush with the law lightly.
Nida, 35, who is married to local attorney and reality TV star Pheadra Parks, 44, was arrested last week and charged with bank fraud and identity theft. Nida spent 5 years in state prison — from 2004 through 2009 — for his role in an auto title theft ring.
Facing multiple serious federal charges that could land him in federal prison, Nida seems to be taking it all in stride.
Uninformed sources are reporting that local attorney Phaedra Creonta Parks, 44, is due to appear at an upcoming disciplinary hearing to determine the status of her law license. According to my source at the Georgia bar there is no disciplinary hearing set for Ms. Parks, whose law license remains in good standing with the bar.
For days the Internet has been buzzing about the arrest of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks’s husband Apollo Nida. Nida, 35, surrendered to U.S. Marshals on Thursday, Jan. 23, on federal charges of bank fraud, embezzlement, credit card fraud and identity theft.
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.
