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.
Peter Thomas is the founder of the wildly popular Miami Beach music conference "How Can I Be Down," which crashed and burned in the mid 2000s amid allegations of fraud, embezzlement and vendor kickbacks.
As you already know, Nida turned himself in to the sheriff's office last month rather than face the embarrassment of a slow speed chase around I-285 in Atlanta.
My source, who may or may not work at the courthouse, revealed that the federal indictments will be "unsealed soon" and become part of the public record. She said she will then be able to spill the juicy contents without fear of losing her job -- since no one is supposed to know what's in there. According to my source, "Apollo will not be going to prison alone."
Due to inclement weather in Atlanta, a judge granted Nida's request to delay his hearing until March 25th. Nida's wife Phaedra Parks, a local attorney and one of the stars of RHOA, will represent him in court.
