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.

Yesterday the Internet was buzzing about a new scandal involving "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida.

According to Angela Stanton, a former friend of Phaedra's, the local attorney once ran a profitable car theft ring. I should pause here to inform you that Stanton has written a book detailing Phaedra's alleged involvement in the car theft ring.

The book is titled Lies of a Real House Wife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil. In the book, and in an exclusive interview with VIBE, Stanton discusses her relationship with Phaedra, Apollo, and Apollos's brother Everett.

All 4 were involved in the prolific car theft ring, according to Stanton. The operation -- led by Phaedra -- stole expensive luxury vehicles by simply driving them off car lots at night. They later trading the vehicles for cars of lesser value which they then sold for cash.
