Posted on Jul 8 2014 - 2:50pm by Editor

Another one bites the Bravo dust!

Apollo Nida, 35, convicted felon and star of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” appeared in a Georgia Court today to be sentenced in his bank, check and identity fraud case.

Apollo pled guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud on May 6, 2014. These charges carried up to 30 years in the slammer. In addition, he would be subject to fines up to $1 million, plus restitution for an estimated $2.3 million.

Today, Judge Charles Pannell, went easy on Apollo only sentencing him to 8-years in prison with 5 years supervised release. U.S. District Court Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr., also ordered Nida to pay restitution to the victims. A separate hearing to calculate the restitution amount is scheduled for July 17.

His wife, Phaedra Parks was NOT present in court for Apollo’s sentencing. His mother and brother were there to support him.

Reginald G. Moore, Special Agent in Charge of the United States Secret Service, Atlanta Field Office, released the following press release:

“Today’s sentencing exemplifies impartial justice regardless of economic class or perceived celebrity status.  Nida’s sentence should be an eye opener for other like-minded criminals who scheme to steal victims’ identities, defraud them and ignore the consequences of their actions.”

As we previously reported, Apollo became a snitch when he agreed to work with the feds in an “undercover investigative capacity” as part of his plea agreement. Below is excerpt from the plea agreement, which describes how the feds will monitor and record conversations and other interaction between Apollo and  persons suspected of criminal activity.

We EXCLUSIVELY received information from a source who claims, Apollo’s bank and identity fraud scam was a large-scale scheme, concocted from within the prison by a gang of inmates. The scam involved several prisons across the US. This tea ties into his parole officer(s) aiding and abetting parolees to make an easy transition (with the scam) from prison to the streets. This explains how Apollo paroled from prison in 2009 and started this fraud scam within the same year of his release from prison. 

Undercover Work: Upon request by the Government, the Defendant agrees to act in an undercover investigative capacity to the best of ability. The Defendant agrees that Defendant will make himself available to the law enforcement agents designated by the Government, will fully comply with all reasonable instructions given by such agents, and will allow such agents to monitor and record conversations and other interaction with persons suspected of criminal activity.

For Apollo’s cooperation, the feds will recommend a reduced sentence. The plea agreement states:

“The Government agrees to make the extent of the Defendant’s cooperation known to the sentencing court. In addition, if the cooperation is completed before sentencing and the Government determines that such cooperation qualifies as “substantial assistance” pursuant to Title 18, United States Code, Section 3553(e) and/or Section5Kl.l of the Sentencing Guidelines, the Government will file a motion at sentencing recommending a downward departure from the applicable guideline range.” 

As we reported, Apollo Nida had accomplices. Many assumed as much since Apollo is dumb as a box of rocks, there was NO WAY he could carry out an intricate plot own his own. Apollo’s Parole Officer played a role in the bank and identity fraud scheme and members of the Atlanta Law Enforcement were reportedly involved. 

“The plea agreement also stipulates upon his conviction, Apollo must forfeit to the government any property derived from the proceeds obtained directly or indirectly as a result of his crimes. This includes money, homes, cars, jewelry, etc.”

Apollo won’t be required to immediately surrender into the custody of the Bureau of Prisons since he’s already out on bail. The court will order him to voluntarily or self-surrender in 3-6 months after he’s sentenced. He will be notified by the U.S. Marshals Service of his exact surrender date and provided with the name of the institution where to surrender. This will give him time to get his affairs in order and say his goodbyes to family and friends.

        She sure did!

      • nan/4

        Exactly Tigerlilly! How did you know? hehe I’ll explain the last email in my next one which I will compose as soon as I’m rid of the awful earache! OUCH! It huuyts!!!! Hope you’ve been well sweetie. 😉
        TTYLater Gator!
        xo

        • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

          Ugh those are painful! Feel better Nan!

  • MorningYawn

    Can someone please explain to me how one can go “undercover” in the future when “undercover” status has already been announced? Which moron is going to chat with him? No way he is going to earn that reduced sentence.

    • nan/4

      It makes no sense at all.

    • Reality LuLu

      I believe that he already did. They go undercover prior to their sentencing to PROVE their intent to actually work with the Government.

  • nan/4

    His mother was a drug addict, so that’s why the sentence was so low? Huh? What am I missing here?

    • He snitched that’s the only reason.

  • SMH!!! They better put him in protective custody because everybody knows he’s a snitch.

    • nan/4

      I thought the same thing, Doc. This really has made me sick to my stomach. He could serve even less than 8 years!!!!

      • True! In federal prisons they are required to serve 85% of their time.

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          But his lawyer reportedly also has him scheduled to go into drug/alcohol rehab which will further reduce the sentence.

    • Marsbars09

      I’ve posted the same comment a couple of times.
      GMTA! 🙂

  • nan/4

    You know,there are so many people in jail for WAY more time for doing much less than that POS did. I’m sorry. This doesn’t make any sense to me.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi nan! I believe Apollo’s sentenced was reduced for ratting out law enforcement that were also involved in his scams.
      Apollo will seriously need to watch his back in the clink. Convicts don’t like “rats”.

      • nan/4

        They can’t separate him from the rest of the prison population since he has a job to do in there, and you gotta know that all of the prisoners involved are going to be lining up to sing like birdies. :-/ Yes, he’s in danger, I agree, but to go from potentially 30 down to 8 (or less) years? Well, it was a surprise to me, anyway.

        Hope you’re doing well Marsie! 😉

        • Marsbars09

          Hi nan! I’m doing alright, how about you?
          I thought you were separated from the population if you receive solitary confinement?

          • nan/4

            In some high profile cases when someone is in imminent danger, they are kept separate and watched more carefully. In this case, however, if I read it right, he’s supposed to be gathering more information for the Feds while he’s incarcerated. LOL! Yeah, right. Like they’re gonna line up for him. Thats why all of the wheeling and dealing is usually not put out there for everyone to know about. It defies logic. To put him in in there with the general prison population to “gather” more information puts him in danger of losing his life. Like I said, I’m not clear on this ruling. So I’ll ask my son, and see what he thinks about it. 🙂

            Other than having an earache, I’m good, thanks! 😉

  • Babson_Chick

    Right – get his affairs in order!! Ha!! He probably never stopped. What’s Fake Phae gonna do now??

    • nan/4

      If she’s not involved, which I HIGHLY doubt, she’ll divorce him right away. I can’t believe that someone can commit the crimes that he did, and get only 8 years, possibly less.

      • Babson_Chick

        Right – I’d probably be put away for life!!

    • Go find another man. Something tells me she’s happy. She’s been done with him for a long time now.

      • Babson_Chick

        Guess we’ll stay tunned – what next??

        • Phaedra’s deposition…..will she comply or won’t she? She only has 30 days to answer the court order. Remember Gayla St. Julien implicated Phaedra in her letter from from prison which Gayla’s family confirmed was authentic.

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Is she in the States?

          • Yes, she’s back.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Didn’t the judge order her to inform him of the date for her deposition by July 4th? Has she complied and let him know when she will be deposed?

          • Good question, West. I’m assuming she at least answered the order. She’s no fool to completely ignore it but nothing has been released to confirm if she did.

            Are you back from the dentist?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes, today was just clean and check.

          • Babson_Chick

            OMG Germany 7 – 0!! Being the legal wiz that she is – she’ll have to comply.

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        DocTah,
        How advantageous would it be for Phaedra to officially divorce Apollo? Would a divorce release his supposed “duty” to support his wife if she no longer was his wife?

        • Good question. You wonder…..on one hand, I keep hearing she will divorce him as soon as he goes off to prison BUT would that make him want to turn on her? She may just string him along while he’s behind bars just to keep him quiet.

      • RealitySuxx

        Yep – she left him last Aug/Sept.

      • Reality LuLu

        Yes I agree. Her “I love you too” to Apollo at Kandi’s wedding was sooooo not heartfelt.

        • Oh yes! Fake as her Southern Belle act. The word on the streets is, she’s quite “happy” if ya know what I mean. *wink*

    • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

      She’s going to pray and pray and pray that Apollo doesn’t implicate her up to her freakin’ neck in this whole mess.

      • Babson_Chick

        Exactly!! I’m betting their homefront is NOT a happy place right now. Phae will start another business and search for a new man (good luck on that)

  • cait

    Does anyone think he’s been set up or a false trail laid by the feds so he can rat out the REAL perps ?

    • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

      Yeah, I do!

      Watch out Phaedra, they’re gonna come git cha!

  • cait

    He’s been given 3 – 6 months grace so he can go back to Bozolanta and set up the, real, unsuspecting perps !

    • nan/4

      How can he do that? Everything is out in the open now. No one is going to tell him anything!

      • cait

        If that lot had any brains they wouldn’t be on these stupid programmes ! Should be a doddle !

  • nan/4

    If this is what they are doing with him, be prepared for a huge upset with Teresa and Joe!

  • Marsbars09

    Great work, Doc. I wonder if Apollo is the first housewife husband to be convicted of major crimes. God willing Joe Giudice will be right behind him come September.
    I’m disappointed that Apollo did not receive more time, but I guess since he ratted on law enforcement he got his sentence reduced.
    You were right when you stated you didn’t believe Fake would be present for his sentencing. I wonder what her next step will be.
    The true victims in this sorry mess are Ayden and Dylan. They will be without a father for the next 8 years. There is also the possibility Fake may be indicted before the year is up.
    Reality sure is cruel, isn’t it? We must be careful for what we wish for.

    • Hey Marsie….I think Apollo might be but who knows what kind of shady past the other hubby’s have. So many of them seem shady. I believe Gregg and Peter have records too. I know they’ve been arrested (I’ve seen the mugshots) not sure if they’ve been convicted.

      I feel for the kids also.

      • Marsbars09

        Doc, I’m talking felony crimes, not misdemeanors.

        • So am I. Even Nene has a felony record.

          • Marsbars09

            I didn’t know she was a felon! I thought her convictions were misdemeanor!

          • They’re all a bunch of criminals.

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    According to TT, Phaedra wasn’t present in court…only his brother I would think “E” Everett (who’s in it up to his eyeballs) and the idiots mother.
    If indeed that is the case, Phaekra is looking real dirty right about now!

    • The same is stated in this story.

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        Thanks.

  • Marsbars09

    Has anyone ever gotten the impression that Todd and Kandi don’t care much for Apollo? I just don’t feel that they’ve ever truly embraced him.

    • They like him because they like Phaedra. Todd has been hanging with him a lot lately. I heard they’ve been frequenting the strip clubs in ATL.

  • Missy Michelle

    This stinks to high heaven….look what I found on the Judge!

    Lawless America Show with William M. Windsor – Sunday April 28, 2013 has been CANCELED
    Georgia Federal Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr. charged with Corruption
    Sunday, 05 February 2012 10:23 Admin

    Atlanta, Georgia federal Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr. is charged with corruption.

    My name is Shellie Youhoing-Nanan, and this is my story…

    I stated in my previous article here on LawlessAmerica.com that I will be publishing an article exposing Federal Court Judge, Judge Charles A Pannell, Jr, as I did to Superior Court Judge Constance C. Russell and other corrupt judges who do not abide by our laws and Constitution, giving aid to the enemies and waring against the Constitution of the United States….

    When a judge decides to conspire with major insurance corporation to commit any illegal act, including defrauding disaster victims of their property and insurance compensation to rebuild their homes, that is giving aid to enemies and levying war against the Constitution.

    I hereby charge Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr. with the criminal racketeering (RICO) crimes as serious as, conspiracy, insurance fraud, mail fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States from lawful function, violation of oath of office, treason, and numerous other crimes.

    After conspiring with Judge Charles A. Pannell to transfer my lawsuit from the Fulton County Superior Court to federal court under fraudulent pretenses, Travelers Attorney, Michael Schroder, was able to inflict the worst crimes against my family — crimes as severe as hiring a private investigator, Dana Mason, to break in my family home after the fire and plant false evidence to make it appear as if my family set fire to the home. Investigation from the Clayton County Fire Department declared the incident unintentional.

    Contrary to Federal law, Judge Charles A. Pannell denied me access to the federal court and denied me the rights to issue a subpoena that would subpoena the private investigator, Dana Mason, who planted false evidence after the fire. Judge Charles A. Pannell also conspired with Travelers attorney and another federal court judge, Judge Russell G. Vineyard, to invite me to come to the court, under the false pretense that we would be having a conference to settle my insurance claim. When I arrived at the courthouse. Judge Russell G. Vineyard intimidated me and demanded that I dismiss my lawsuit against Travelers.

    To date, I have filed three recusal motions to remove Judge Charles A. Pannell from presiding over my case. But on all three occasions, Judge Charles A. Pannell mailed court orders containing numerous pages of arguments abusing me as a pro se litigant and refusing to recuse himself.

    On March 2, 2010, on the eve of holding a big rally before the federal court, Fulton County Superior Court, the Georgia Supreme Court, ant eh Court of Appeals of Georgia, I was forced to cancel the event by the Fulton County Police. As stated in my previous article against Judge David P. Darden, who is also one of the conspirators involved, it was only four days after I was forced to cancel the huge protest that my home was suddenly surrounded by SWAT team and officers from three different law enforcement agencies within Clayton County. They kicked down the door to my home without a warrant. I was pregnant at the time, and I was brutalized, tortured, held repeatedly at gun point, photographed naked in the presence of my children, and my unborn son “Baby Angel” was viciously murdered.

    After the vicious murder/ feticide of my unborn child, and the serious injuries inflicted upon me, the Clayton County Government set me up with 23 counts of fraudulent charges. In further acts of conspiracy, adding insult to injury, Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr. conspired with the Travelers attorney and dismissed my lawsuit in the amount of more than $500,000 and refused to mail a copy of the dismissal order to me or my attorney (Rex McClinton). I further learned that Attorney Rex McClinton committed suicide.

    Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr is one of the most corrupt federal judges, and he must be exposed, investigated, imprisoned, and held accountable for his role in this conspiracy, including utilizing the legal administration of the federal court to aid and abet major insurance corporations in defrauding disaster victims of insurance compensation for losses incurred as well as his profound prejudice and abuse of pro se litigants.

    Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr is a senior Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, 75 Spring Street, Georgia 30303. Investigation reveals that Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr was appointed to the Federal court in 1999 by Former President Bill Clinton.

    • WOWZERS!!!!!!!

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    Is there any word indicating that Phaedra has returned from her vacation in Mexico (out of the country)?

    • Yes, she’s been back. She held a Fourth of July party at her house. Kandi attended. The vaca was a weekend getaway for Fantasia’s birthday. It was an “All Girl’s” trip.

    • Missy Michelle

      I find it very strange that she managed to be “out of the country” on this precise date…..hmmmm

  • Reality LuLu

    This is what I imagined happened at the Guidice home after hearing about the Sentence Apollo received.

          I just post a comment to u up

          • Saw it…thanks boo! 🙂 xoxo

  • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

    Wow bad day to be Apollo. According to ROL the Government sold one of his houses in Atlanta at public auction. Forest’s Mom was right. Stupid is as stupid does!

    • Hey hon…for some odd reason (don’t ask me why) I feel a little sorry for him. May be it’s because he is really stupid and was misled by a nefarious wife and was just too stupid to know any better. *SIGH*

      • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

        Hi, hi Doc! I would have too maybe if this was his first go round, but he should have known better. Be a grown man but your big boy panties on & say NO! Not going back. They all think they are too smart to get caught. He should have learned that life lesson the first time he got busted. I feel bad for the boys. They are so young. 2 more young men growing up without a Father! It wasn’t worth it. At least not in my eyes. I hope they become the opposite of their parents, Cause they both are as shady as the Redwood National Forest!

        • True. You are absolutely right. I hope the boys got Phaedra’s brain but not her criminal tendencies. And I hope they don’t allow none of this mess to determine their futures.

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

            Beautifully stated Doc. Well said.

    • Marsbars09

      Hey T-lilly! The lives of Apollo and his boys have been changed drastically. The boys will be without their father for the next 8 years of their life. I’m not so sure of Fake’s fate as she is reportedly under investigation by the Secret Service as well.

      • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

        I have a feeling that Fakedra is just a skosh smarter than Angela, & Apollo may just be able to put Fakedra in the ‘catbird’ seat by having her also go ‘undercover’ LOL! Maybe there’s an even bigger scam going down in the mortuary business? Hence her new career choice! Sorry just being a smart-ass.

        & yes my heart aches for those babies. It’s gonna be hard to not have their dad around. Seems all these children are paying a very high price for the choices these ‘Bravolebrities’ are making!

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          Tiger it’s Tre’s Pics…formerly Tre’s Twits.
          I haven’t seen anything from NAWS for a bit. Is she okay?? I haven’t been too prolific of late. I’m worried. Seriously, I’m really concerned.

          • ✿♡❀♡❁ Tigerlily ❁♡❀♡✿

            Hi Twit’s. How are you? Hope all is well with you. As far as I know Naws is not feeling well. She has flare ups with her Arthritis, I believe. Doc or Twi might have more or better info.
            I’ve emailed her a few times but have not heard back. I have no other way to reach her. I saw her post once a few days or so ago. I too am concerned. I miss her terribly & I hope she is okay & will be feeling better soon. 🙁

    • nan/4

      OMG! That’s hysterical!!!! I was really bummed by this whole thing, but you made me laugh! Thanks darlin’! 😉

  • WestCoastFeed

    ABC News has another tidbit. July 17th Apollo has to return to court for his restitution hearing.

    • Marsbars09

      Oh boy. This is a never ending saga.

      • Well they gotta collect restitution for his victims and the judge didn’t address it today…why, I’m not sure.

    • Aha! That’s why it wasn’t addressed today. I was wondering how much he had to pay up. Also, I’m sure they will confiscate all his possessions of value….homes, cars, jewelry, etc. I wonder if Phae’s possessions will be held liable if they have joint possessions.

      • WestCoastFeed

        You think Phaedra allowed him to hold anything jointly with her?

        • You should see the smirk on my face. You know she didn’t. She’s way too smart for that. And it would not surprise me if she divorces him and he doesn’t spill the beans on her. I would wager, she has more dirt on him and uses that as leverage.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’m not sure if I remember this correctly. Didn’t he try to give her a car? And didn’t she take it back and buy herself her own car instead? Or was that some other couple?

          • You’re correct. Apollo said it on the House Husbands Revealed special. He said Phae just didn’t like the car. Phaedra is no dummy. She’s manipulative and very calculated. She set that boy up to take the fall just like she does with her other alleged victims. Notice all the people she deals with are undereducated and criminals?

          • cait

            Thought that was Gretchen and Slade.

          • RonnieIsBack

            Yup..she is one slick cookie.

        • Norrth

          Maybe not on paper but if she can’t prove to a forensic accountant that she paid for everything on her own, she’s still sunk.

      • Marsbars09

        That’s a great question.

        • nan/4

          I would think so. I’ll be having a session with my son who is a lawyer later to ask him MANY questions I have about this sentencing. I’m STILL SMH!!!! Geesh!

          • Good. And please report back here your findings. Thanks Nan.

          • nan/4

            Will do! 😉

          • Missy Michelle

            I’ll eagerly be standing by, nan!

      • RonnieIsBack

        I wonder if his azz will still be able to do “appearences” Ticked me off to see him fronting and going around to parties like he is a celebrity…and making money off of it…crook.

  • italiano bambino

    Dr great tea applause to your team

  • cait

    Don’t forget that Apollo went straight back to the same people, after his last spell in prison, including his shady brother E (That must stand for Eejit), Fraudsta and others so I’m not sure if he stood a chance because Angela seems to have been stiffed in a similar way

  • Missy Michelle

    Doc, she reminds me of Jodi Arias. A trial I’ve been following for a while. Manipulative, cunning, conniving, devious, chameleon, ruthless, astute and opportunistic. Fakedra didn’t murder anyone but has same character traits as JA, whom also speaks in a low sweet ” innocent” ” who me?” tone. Her whole southern belle persona is part of the game.

    • Spot on!!!!! Phae scares me as much as JA does. Both very capable of committing the same crime. Sociopaths have no criminal boundaries…NONE!~

      • Missy Michelle

        Yes!! Capable, willing and able…….without batting an eyelash!!

        • YES! And that’s the scary part. She strikes me as the type that would bake poisonous cookies, get dolled up like the perfect Southern Belle (hat and all) and hand them out at a nursing home with the intention of getting future clients for the her funeral home. SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Missy Michelle

            Yes, like those sick characters you see on a Criminal Minds episode!
            And that smile of hers….what the Psycologist tv commentators on JA trial called ” Dupers Delight”……..she seems to get delight over morbid situations too! Sick!

          • Yes! *nodding*

  • Missy Michelle

    I will start reading Angela’s book at 9pm and trust me, I won’t fall asleep till I finish it. She’s the one I feel sorry for….

  • Missy Michelle

    Unfortunately, like Florida, ATL has a reputation for massive corruption within LE, more so in certain counties. My daughter lives there and it’s a known fact within the community. I saw a trial on Court Tv a few yrs ago that was unbelievable, about the Chief of Police and every other cop that were in cahoots. What was surprising to me was that it seemed as if no one was surprised, it’s like a norm. Betcha Phae has hidden behind a few of these peeps for a while. Teflon Southern Belle!

  • Norrth

    Eight years? On a repeat offense? I hope some of the victims were permitted to speak. Eight years? The only people who win (besides Apollo) are his children. He will at least be there before they reach adulthood. Hopefully he has learned his lesson.

    • Marsbars09

      Apollo winning? I think he’s a huge loser for being a two time felon convict who will not be a part of his sons lives for the next 8 years. Kids need their fathers from birth through their formative years. Apollo’s absence will prove devastating to those boys.

    • Something tells me with only getting 8 years and serving 6 years prior , he will get out and do it again. He’s not going to stop unless he serves 25+ years.

      • Marsbars09

        Great anology Doc! Crime is in Apollo’s DNA.

        • Thanks and yes it is. As well as Phaedra.

          • Marsbars09

            I think Fake’s thirst for crime is acquired. She picked it up somewhere in her life.

          • Probably from sleeping with drug dealers in college.

          • Marsbars09

            Doc, where do you get this info from? Your investigative reporters?

          • Raine Woman

            Hiya Mars! I was thinking about you earlier today when I heard the news. I know you were looking forward to today, regardless of the outcome. 🙂

          • Marsbars09

            Thank you Raine! I think a lot of us were looking forward to this day.
            Next sentencing-the Giudices!

      • Birdie11

        Absolutely…we have no reason to believe that he’s learned anything. Plus he’s slow as dirt.

      • Missy Michelle

        Without a doubt!!! He’s loving that he only got 8 yrs! Probably already has calculated the actual time he’ll serve and be out and about in time for his next con game.

        • Marsbars09

          Apollo will have plenty of time to plan his next scheme uninterrupted. SMH.

        • PREACH!

  • SAMRA1116

    Oh thank you —did they show him on TV
    When will Fhedra be questioned..

  • SAMRA1116

    Let’s see how fair the system is by Teresa sentencing date. Crooks are crooks, put them away from society.

  • cait

    You guys have so many layers of law and too many of these people are elected, so have to schmooze ! I am so impressed with many of your laws, but like our police over here, yours must be as p*ssed off as ours when a well investigated case gets thrown out for spurious reasons !

    • Well this case didn’t get thrown out. The feds got the info they needed and they also got a little time served out of Apollo.

      • nan/4

        Do they not expect him to continue his gathering of criminal activity information? I’m not clear on that. It seemed like the ruling specified that he could further reduce his sentence if he coughed up more dirt. He could also further his chances of breathing…..:-O

      • cait

        Sorry Doc, not mean this one, just a general ob of how our CPS and courts undermine the police !

        • Thanks for the clarification, Cait.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey Cait, if I may ask, where are you from?

      • cait

        Hi Ronnie, I live in Manchester, UK. Hope your day is good.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Fantastic! You have a great day as well and I enjoy your posts.

  • Birdie11

    What a loser…if a wife and two children don’t make him change his ways, what will? We will hear of divorce papers filed in 3-2-1… That is if Phaek isn’t too busy scurrying around trying to cover her own butt.

    • cait

      She files and cuts him off, he has no excuse not to testify against her ! I would have testified to anything about my husband if needed, until I made him my ex ! Job done !

      • RonnieIsBack

        which is why I think she will not divorce him lickety split..leave him on the hook for a while…but carry one with others of course…

    • Hey sweet Birdie…..I think it’s the wife that led him back to this life. Those two are a dangerous attraction. It wasn’t going to end well.

      • cait

        Xactly ! That’s why rehab druggies are told not to go back to the ‘hood ! Glad you’re all cheered up !

      • Birdie11

        Hey Suessie! Well, he had to find some brains somewhere! Although, I think Phaek is stupider than we think.

        • Marsbars09

          Hi birdie! How are you doing this evening?
          I don’t think Fake is nearly as smart as she is slick and calculating. She really feels that the masses fall for her “southern belle” schtick . What a delusional POS!

          • Birdie11

            Hey Marsie…I’m well…the southern belle shtick along with her squished up boobs have always felt fake, fake, fake!! Hope you’re having a wonderful Tuesday!

          • cait

            Least he’s got boobs ! Have some pity for the rest of us !

          • RonnieIsBack

            I agree..she deals with the mentally challenged…which makes her look smart…Horse-sha better watch her bad..the dimwit.

        • Hey sweets…..I don’t know….I think Phaedra is the southern Kizer Sauzée. Southern Belle attorney by day….Turned up freak criminal mastermind by night. That bitch scares me!

          • Birdie11

            Really all we have seen of her is the character she has played on TV..there is nothing real about the goods she has sold us. It has been 100% an act. I’d be worried if I trusted her with any of my dead loved ones…she almost cackles and rubs her hands together when she talks about being a mortician.

          • Yup….you and I see it but she does sell a pinched bag of goods to many. Many fall for Southern Belle act. They think she’s innocent and witty. Heck, I did at one point. I stop liking her long ago but after Angela Stanton’s book, I’m very very afraid of her. She’s a predator and dangerous.

          • Birdie11

            I quit liking her when she forced us all to watch a ballet dancer at that ridiculous baby shower.

          • LMAO!!!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Agreed 100% and I believe they know so many thugs which is why Kenya was yelling for security also…and Nene changed her tune about going after Fakedra…it is a shame…I cannot believe Kandi and Todd hangs with them…

  • Raine Woman

    Hi All!

    Great coverage, as usual. I have a question…HLN mentioned something about a drug/alcohol program Apollo will be in once he gets to prison and that it could reduce his time. What is that about? I get what rehab is, I just don’t understand why he would qualify for such a program. Anyone…anyone?

    • Hi Raine Lady. His lawyers probably threw that in to get him less time. But we know better. Most defendants like to get into those programs to get their time served in a less dangerous facility.

      • Raine Woman

        Doc! How are you? Busy? 😉
        He must have given up some serious info to get this whole deal. What a crock!

        • All About The Tea

          Hey hon. Super busy. Trying to comment and cook LOL. Yes, he did a whole lotta singing, hope it don’t bring no flower bringing! (you get what I mean)

        • Hi Raine Lady. I’m well, thanks. And you? He ratted out the Atlanta PD and his parole officer.

          • Marsbars09

            I forgot about which law enforcement he implicated.
            I hope God watches over Apollo as he serves this sentence. It’s gonig to be a tough one.

          • Raine Woman

            I knew about the parole officer and APD but is that all it takes? Not that those are little things but it just seems with his classification there would have to be something more to get that time reduction plus the benefit of drug/alcohol program. What do I know though, I’m not a criminal…nor Dr. Seuss! Hahahahaha!

          • Hahahaha! I’m under the impression it was quite a few bodies he rolled on. They better put his high yella tail in protective custody. Lawd Hammercy!!!

          • RonnieIsBack

            Oh he snitched and I believe to hurt him they will go after Fakedra…rightfully so if she is involved…those poor kids.

          • Morting!

            He’s so dumb. SMH!

          • RonnieIsBack

            Good Morntink babycakes!!!
            Yes in my Antoine Dodson voice: He is so dummbbbbbbb so very very dumbbbbbbbbbbbbb.

  • cait

    This latest scam involves company pensions, government and federal funds, bank fraud etc. A really good computer geek could sort this out, UNLESS someone doesn’t want it sorted !

  • cait

    Hey Nan, just read the story about poor little Cooper ! The evidence points to very sick, evil parents so far !

    • nan/4

      I know cait! Isn’t that a tragedy? It’s frightening to know that there are evil people out there walking amongst us, and they seem so “normal!” Yes, in my opinion, they both look very guilty to me as well.

      • cait

        There’s just been another car case in Connecticut, 15 mth old baby ! They say at least 38 kids die, a year, like this. So sad.

        • Lorn

          I personally think parents or anyone who leaves a child in a car should be arrested and charged with manslaughter. I don’t even forget my dog in the car. If you are forgetting your kids, you have no right having them.

  • cait

    This whole thing stinks of malfeasance ! The Gov sold Apollo’s house for a few thousand dollars yet he’s supposed to have gazillions ! I think he was set up both times, and I bet Angela has the evidence !

    • nan/4

      How was he “set up” cait? I don’t follow….

      • cait

        I think he and Gayla committed the crimes under instruction, as between them they are 1 banana short of a bunch ! I just don’t get how these 2 dumbos masterminded a federal fraud ! Again, why are the Government geeks on this as it is a fed case ?

        • nan/4

          I’m not sure, cait. This looked like a case that involved people in and out of prison in quite a few states. I think that the groundwork was set while Apollo was in prison the first time, he got out, and went right to work. No way do I think that Apollo was masterminded anything, but I don’t think that they were essentially hired by the Federal government to commit crimes. I certainly could be wrong though. Stranger things have happened. I suppose time will tell…..I hope! 🙂

          • cait

            , I think it was more localised, and the prison thing is a sidetrack ! But someone is hiding something !

          • SAMRA1116

            Yes they are—some high officials, above all of them are suspicious. It’s doesn’t take long to follow a thug, to know, he’s not making his money legal.
            Asset recovery was his job title—stealing from poor or retired ppl

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Somebody, I think on another site, posted info that the judge on a case in ATL is soon to be or already is up on corruption charges.
            I’ll see if I can nail it down and get back on it for y’all.

  • Bonita Gee

    I bet Joe Giudice will get about the same. Not bazillion years that everyone thinks he’ll get, just like Apollo. And Teresa will get lesser time than Joe…….. haaaaaaaaaa!!

    • SAMRA1116

      Then we all see —-there in no fair sentence for ANYTHING— it’s all up to the judge and what deals are made behind close door.
      Teresa deserves 8 years or more according to her charges —– statically stating—-I check the records for criminals. That’s the min Teresa should get, but we will see.

      • Bonita Gee

        I’m willing to BET money she gets LESS than 8. And Joe won’t get more than 15 – BET! The system is messed up ……… that’s why.
        No one predicted that the death of Joe’s dad would delay his sentencing 2 whole months. That’s crazy in itself!! ….. ANYTHING can happen. That’s why I say everyone will be SHOCKED yet again with the sentencing.

        • SAMRA1116

          I agree with you —I’m looking at the injustice of the sentences. Count by count, the fraud, etc. my brother said it’s up to the JUDGE on each case to sentencing. I’m not going to be shocked, I expect it, but what I’m saying is—-shit that’s a short time away for all Teresa alone has done. Only this season on NJ will be be really sorry.

          • Bonita Gee

            And Apollo probably won’t do the entire 8. He could get out more than year early for good behavior. I can’t wait til September now.
            Teresa and Joe will get a slap on the wrist.

          • SAMRA1116

            I want to hear and read —-why she deserve so little time.
            They all crooks with very cases are so what alike. But the time they were looking at is the same. Teresa is planning life with Joe in jail..

  • cait

    Maybe prisons should be for violent people and the rest should lose all their assets with restrictions ! Not sure about this yet ?

  • Hi Wendee…..ain’t that the truth!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Doc! Please check your e-mail.

  • SAMRA1116

    OT::: wondering who Apollo will be. Stripping for in prison for treats. I have a dollars to see him roll on Big Daddy. Oh I know he will have time to realized his threw away, a second chance to compete with Fhedra. His two young sons did not ask gir any of this.

  • Missy Michelle

    2am…..just finished book. Whoever hasn’t read Angela’s book as yet you MUST order it ASAP!!!! I don’t even know what to say, I’m left dazed! This I will say…Phaedra is the devil incarnate and I don’t throw that around lightly. Pure wickedness….a monster. You will not believe the Teflon skin this woman has and exactly why she has that cocky and mocking attitude……there’s a lot of legs to this! You’re heart will break for Angela….JMO

    • SAMRA1116

      Had Fhedra pegged for the no good bitch and user she is.
      Everyone else was fooled
      Whitney Houston said that attorney was a tramp and whorer.
      She very good at manipulating others with her words. Dummyl
      Her parents are so proud.

      • SpringBreeze14

        Woah! So Whitney commented on Phaedra?

        • SAMRA1116

          She was Bobby Brown attorney. That’s her trademark, I represented him and he got good, for all his crimes. Smh

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Samra! I didn’t know Whitney had something to say about Fake.
        She really is no good.

        • SAMRA1116

          Mars —-remember when Whitney looked like a skinny, dead rat, twitching in court, high, staying by her man. Well when bobby was free.
          Whitney Houston said on the radio—that Phedra parks is a whorer, she was sleeping with him. That’s why from day one, Fhedra is what all the whispers, acknowledgement and telling the truth on Whitney’s part. A common whorer.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I am ordering it next week. Her day is coming…

      • Missy Michelle

        Ronnie, I ordered it thru Amazon and I always order used. They’re always in great condition and usually never pay more than $5-7, this price is including the shipping. Can’t go wrong!

    • Marsbars09

      Thanks for sharing Michelle. I don’t doubt your characterization of Fake. She is really a monstrous and unfeeling person. I cringe when I see her joking & laughing with folks.

    • SpringBreeze14

      Yes!! I read the book last year and was blown away!

    • AGREED! You hit the nail on the head about Phaedra. After Stanton’s book, I now view Phaedra as sinister. She scares me.

  • SpringBreeze14

    A lot of people felt like his sentence should have been much longer, including me! I guess the feds and judicial system know what they’re doing though. What I wonder is how long will Apollo stay alive! Snitching on folks with a serious crime like that will get you blasted! He will now be a target and possibly his family now. I do believe this is the beginning of the end for the Nidas! It’s only a matter of time before they catch his shady wife and I’m loving how Angela Stanton is so determined to get them! Lol!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi SB! I too was wondering if they were going to separate Apollo from the rest of the population in prison. Convicts don’t like “rats”.
      Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Fake is indicted before the year is up. It’s been reported Secret Service is investigating her.

      • SpringBreeze14

        Hey Mars! Nothing surprises me and I think a lot of stuff will hit the fan once Jessica Voker puts out her book. I heard she was also cooperating with the feds!

    • Hi SB! Hope you well hon. I think Apollo will be in protective custody and out before the 8 years through a drug/alcohol program.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Was his prior incarceration also a Federal crime? If yes, and if he ratted out someone who still in that prison, they may have to find another facility to place him in.

        • twifan2

          WCF, can you go over to this thread & answer a question? It’s the very top post from Susie Whats Her Name
          Thanks! 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            I’ll make a try at it, but all I can say that his estate would now be the likely responsible party.

          • That’s a likely answer. Anything Frank was responsible for is now the responsibility of his estate.

          • twifan2

            Even the Juicys’ monthly allowance? :/

          • twifan2

            I was thinking that’s who would be ‘responsible’, but I wasn’t sure.
            Thanks, WCF! 🙂

        • The prior incarceration was State (I believe). Something tells me Apollo won’t be serving his time in a Georgia prison.

      • SpringBreeze14

        Hey Seuss! I’m doing good just have a slight cold! How are you? Is it just me or does it seem like this day and age if you look good it doesn’t matter what you’ve done wrong?

    • RonnieIsBack

      It should have been. Hell the Katrina mayor got more time….I guess it pays to be a snitchazzbitch…

  • SpringBreeze14

    Let me just say this as well….after observing Kenya’s shady tweets lately I see why people say what they say about her. It would not surprise me if her and Apollo did hook up. Kenya comes across as very sneaky.

    • WHAT? What happened, what shady tweets?

      • WestCoastFeed

        I didn’t see any shady tweets.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Neither did I…a lot of the tweet are from her fans…..or her sceptre..lol…she threw some shade at ole azz vivica fox..that’s all I saw (and viv deserved that)

      • SpringBreeze14

        Girl lol…Kenya only likes people who stan for her 24/7. I think she’s very sneaky and I kind of see why so many people say what they say about her. I do think her and Apollo had a fling too! DM me to get more to this story lol

        • Lorn

          I so agree. On RT’s blog you can’t say that though or they will feed you to the wolves.

          • SummerBreeze14

            I was shocked that so many on RT support Kenya now cause almost 2 years ago when I used to comment on that site I was one of the few Kenya supporters and got banned from commenting! They let trolls ruin their site. I take back what I said about Kenya for now…there was some shady stuff going on with that team twirl group but it’s all good. I still think she like most of those celebs, love people who worship them 24/7.

          • Lorn

            I got banned from that site as well for responding to one of their trolls for being confrontational and derogatory. When they did that, I told them I filed a report with the Federal trade Commission for discrimination and providing a volatile and threatening environment for their customers.

            I advise others to do the same as its a site I’ve found gets way out of hand, worse than Radar.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Kenya tweeted that Bravo began filming yesterday. Did they film anything at the courthouse?

    • twifan2

      You better believe they did. :/
      WCF, were some of the housewives on The Today Show this morning?

      • WestCoastFeed

        I’ve seen tweets about them going to NYC for the show. I think Dina and the twins were going to be on the Today show. I didn’t watch.

        • twifan2

          I didn’t see any video clips of them on the show from this morning. :/
          I saw some twits about them being on The Today Show last nite.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I just saw a tweet from someone who said their appearance was too short. Dina, Amber and the twins were on the Today show.
            I guess Melissa was headed in to the city to film for the View.

          • twifan2

            I thought I saw Tre was going to be on also?
            It was late when I saw the twits.
            Maybe that’s why there’s no video of them being on there today?! Guess RHW isn’t that ‘news’ worthy anymore. 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            I wonder if the View will have all of them on?

          • twifan2

            On The View’s listing it has this:
            Game show host Jane Lynch; reality TV stars Teresa Giudice, Dina Manzo and Melissa Gorga.

            So, guess we’ll have to wait & see who shows.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I don’t think Teresa will be insisting on a separate interview this year. Wasn’t it the View where she wouldn’t agree to be on with another castmate?

          • twifan2

            I think so.
            How the ‘mighty’ have fallen! 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            Did you see her tweet for another DiningOutNJ appearance? This time it’s only $10 for an hors d’oeuvres and a glass of Fartellini.

            No I didn’t! 😮

            Did you see that Big Ang is coming to the premiere party?

          • twifan2

            With her VOLUPTUOUS lips?! 😀
            That should be interesting. Tre needs to get bigger ‘celebrities’ to promote the show now!

            well let me just rush over to check out this fine upmarket place 🙂

          • twifan2

            Put your waders on, Babs!
            AND have a stiff drink on you! Theirs might be ‘watered’ down. :/

            ONLY $10?! Wonder how much the drink prices will be jacked up to?
            REALLY desperate to get ppl in.

            Why is she charging anything at this point…

            It’s a cover charge by the restaurant

            Teresa need to keep her azz at home…seriously…

        • Raine Woman

          Hi West! I posted a link to the Today interview up above. I know you’ve said you can’t always hear the videos but this one has a “cc” on it. I’m not sure but it might be “closed captioning.” It’s well worth trying. 🙂

      • Raine Woman

        I actually caught this this morning. It was hysterical!!! http://www.today.com/klgandhoda/real-housewives-new-jersey-dish-new-season-1D79903116

        You have to watch Dina skirt the questions about Teresa.

    • Yes. RHOA started filming season 7 before yesterday. Yesterday, they filmed the before and after of Apollo’s sentencing. And outside footage of the court drama. They also filmed some scenes in June of Apollo going through his legal woes.

        Was Phae by his side all thru-out?

        • Nope. They’ve been separated for almost a year now. She wants nothing to do with him or so they are making it seem (for obvious reasons).

          • twifan2

            I hope she’s not using the boys as bargaining chips for her own advantage!
            >(

          • Missy Michelle

            You better believe she is!! They’re her pawns…..even before conception. Having these two innocent children was nothing but part of her master plan. Fakedra does NOTHING that’s not premeditated and with a self serving goal in mind. Jmo

          • twifan2

            Yep! Yeah! Yes!
            So sad, but true. 🙁

            Longer than that—-Fhedra and Apollo has been separated, since the police pulled him over and it was a mess, but it was covered up.
            They’ve been tolerating each other since then.

          • RonnieIsBack

            and his traveling back pack lol

          • SAMRA1116

            His not BILL GATES HE STARTED THIS TREND DECADES AGO.
            HE WAS TRAVELING WITH HIS COMPUTER—TO HELP DISADVANTAGE PEOPLE. UGH

          • RonnieIsBack

            Which makes this all so fake as well because kandi was married on 4/4/14..and didn’t they press out a forced “I love you” when walking down the aisle? shady….

          • EXACTLY! They put on “fake” fronts for the cameras, so who knows what we’ll see of their relationship in season 7. They may fake living together.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Yall know they did..those whores at Bravo would not miss this for chit..they probably have the judicial assitant, scratch that the nosey gossipy azz BALIFFS on speed-dial…

  • Phaedra hasn’t tweeted since July 6 and Apollo hasn’t tweeted since June 8th.

    • twifan2

      At least they know when to stay off social media. UNLIKE ‘some’ others. :/

      • MorningYawn

        TRUTH!

      • Hahaha! Right.

    • SAMRA1116

      Why should she tweet??? She’s knows we know and she hears everything. Fhedra is acting like TEFLON DON in plain sight. Must be nice, not to give a damn and no one can touch me. LMFAO

      • RonnieIsBack

        yup…she is horrible..and she doesn’t care…
