'Real Housewives' Star's Husband Faces Serious Charges in Federal Court

Apollo Nida Phaedra ParksLooks like another celebrity could be headed from the ATL to j-a-i-l! The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida is in hot water -- again -- with authorities. This time the feds claim Phaedra Parks' quiet husband has been up to some serious hanky panky at work.

We're talking bank fraud and identity theft! And considering the federal government is involved, it's safe to say these charges aren't going away any time soon.

In an indictment against Nida obtained by the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he is charged with stealing people's identities and having a partner in crime, identified as Gayla St. Julien, pretend to be them to set up accounts. The reality star also allegedly set up fake companies, including a fake auto dealership, and applied for fake auto loans.

It's all pretty screwed up stuff, but not exactly ... surprising? Phaedra married this guy and had two kids with him AFTER he'd been in prison for five years for breaking federal racketeering laws. Oh, and those laws that he broke? They related to auto title fraud. Sound familiar?

Girlfriend knew what she was getting into ... but you can't help but feel a little bad for her, or at least for their kids. If they're true, charges like these could put daddy away for a good, long time. Ayden and baby Dylan may have to get used to seeing him behind bars.

Can't wait to see how this all plays out on Housewives

What do you think of Apollo Nida?

What I don't get are white bloggers using slang while talking about black celebrities.

Mrs.S... Mrs.Sparkle

Billsfan strikes again. She's so very racist:/

ImMyB... ImMyBabysMama

Interesting.. She's still super successful.. She could date Barney the dinosaur and I could care less! Lol! Juicy Read Though!

You gotta watch the quiet ones...

Mrs Sparkle, do I know you?? I haven't posted in here in months, and that's what you come up with??

Whatever. Usually the ones who scream racist the loudest is usually the racist. Poor thing. Prayers for your racist thoughts.

Hmmmm... I read this a few times and can't seem to find anything written here that I would consider racist. Am I missing something? Or did the author update the article?

Mrs.S... Mrs.Sparkle

Billsfan I know you more then you know. And I would be racist how since I'm both black and white???? Nope your only missing the fact that Billsfan is racist towards black people which is why she commented like she did. And Billsfan you can shove your prayers up your ass:)

bills... billsfan1104

Taisie, I didn't say she was racist, I was talking about how she tried to talk slang by saying "girlfriend". She doesn't use it when talking about other celebrities.

And Mrs Sparkle, you have no clue who I am. But if you do, and you try to do something to my family and I, just know that you will be greeted with something that you cannot outrun. Stalker.

And Mrs Sparkle, black people can be racist. You are not exempt from that. I pray for you still.

And I pray for your family as well. God Bless

What I am thinking about is how I sure hope that we see an equal level of justice in the cases of Apollo and that of Teresa and Joe Guidice on RHONJ. Frankly, Joe has more charges pending than does Apollo. It is appalling that these dads are risking their children's futures when they (allegedly) commit these crimes: I imagine they create brilliant rationalizations in their mind, but this is what has happened. Black, white--darn well better see BOTH men tried seriously and fairly, and judgments made regardless of race... or celebrity status.
