Things are getting too real for the The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Apollo Nida, who was to report to federal prison in Lexington, Kentucky today at noon had not yet shown up as of 7:49 p.m. EST, according to CNN. He reportedly was at the home he shared with wife Phaedra Parks where an argument ensued.

Parks’ publicist Steve Honig confirms that Nida and Parks had an altercation after Nida showed up at their home earlier today.  TMZ.com reports the dispute was over Parks’ refusal to put money on Nida’s accounts and to bring their two sons to the prison to visit.

“Phaedra is now putting all of her energy into ensuring the well-being of her two children and making decisions that are in their best interests,” said in a statement to CNN Wednesday. “This situation has put a tremendous strain on Phaedra and her family, and she is working hard to bring back a sense of normalcy to everyone’s lives.”

Nida was sentenced to 8 years in prison after facing up to 30 years.  He must also pay nearly $2 million in restitution after he plead guilty to fraud and identity theft in July. Before his scheduled departure to prison today, Nida said he wanted people to know he regrets his mistakes.

“I want people to know that I am kind-hearted person despite my choices,” he told Forbes.com. “We all make choices; some good and some bad, but people can still be considered good people. I would give my last dime to any person that needs it and I have given my last to my family. I know that many people have a negative perception of me, but I do want people to understand that this situation is hard. I am truly hurting. I wish I could start over; do the right thing; possibly go to college and get a degree; and overall make better decisions.

This is Nida’s second jail stint – he previously served 5 years in a federal prison for auto title fraud, essentially the same crime that he was convicted for again this time.

Nida and Parks married in 2009.

  1. I just cannot imagine that Pharedra did not know where Apollo was getting his income from if you are in a marriage. Don’t tell, don’t ask policy, but she always seemed unclear what his job entailed. If he paid any bills, those funds should go towards his restitution! So sad that he could not see that he had a great opportunity and stability. I am sure Phaedra found you can take a horse to the water but can’t make him drink! Now she must regroup and protect what she has for the sake of their sons!

    • That was his “past” I’m sure she thought he’d changed. Some people “NEVER” go back to a life of crime after being incarcerated. Apollo could not resist the temptation. She has nothing to do with his choices. This is his issue and his alone. Her knowing his past has nothing to do with the future she thought she would have with this man.

  2. I hope all of these Housewives characters are saving, and investing their $$$ well because people are (slowly) getting tired of all of their nonsense!!

    I guess Kenya can put money on your books. She is getting the last laugh now because you and Fakedra tried to make her look like a fool. Fakedra looked like a fool bragging on a felon who had no job and criticizing Kenya for going to a sperm bank for a donor yet she got you from “Build A Felon Workshop.” Saying you talking bout my husssband and father of my kids like a peacock who had a real man in her life to brag about. She oughta feel like a fool

    This is truly sad he has children and a wife that he seems to not care much about because he got out of prison and seems to have not learned his lesson SMH

  6. He’s use to it. Will say it again, Phaedra/Phakedra was a fool getting involved with him period. She knew he was a ex-con fresh out of prison, slept with him got pregnant married later, married him and had another kid, TRIFFLIN and DESPERATE WOMAN!

      I was ROTFLMAO when she had him on Skype talking about say hi to the kids he was at work when he was in the room next door. He is like Tommy from Martin, he ain’t got no job. He was a project to her and she was going to really parade him like a peacock saying look what I have done.
