Phaedra Parks' Husband Apollo Nida Is Going to Prison for a Long Time

apollo nida and phaedre parks Holy Toledo. Okay, so like, we knew Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida was in some serious trouble with the law. He was charged with enough fraud and identity theft that it could have left folks wondering if he wasn't trying to get his own reality show "Apollo Goes to Jail: The Return". Here's hoping he inked that deal, because the judge came down with a verdict. Apollo is going to jail FOR EIGHT YEARS.

Whoa. I mean, I should feel pity for the guy, because that is almost a decade and jail is no joke but here's the thing -- I don't. This won't be Apollo's first visit to the clink, and if he didn't learn the first time around I give officially none of the toots about him going back because he too stupid not to do stuff like perpetrate fraud in the name of financial advancement. You know who I do feel sorry for? His wife Phaedra Parks and their two adorable sons! 

Look, I know it's tempting to call out Phaedra. She's no dummy, and stuff with Apollo has been the worst since she had their second kid, but you have to give the woman props. She's going to school, she's raising two kids, she's running a business, and she's smart and quippy as hell. Can you really fault for her trying to make her struggling marriage work? I mean, for Apollo's pecs alone I give that marriage some time....this is probably why I am not married.

That said, if ever there was a time to walk, this is it. What kind of example and message is Phaedra sending to her kids by staying with this guy who committed a crime so grievous (and then lied about it) that he's going to be gone for a huge chunk of his children's childhoods? I'm not saying cut the guy out of their lives, kids need their dads, sure I get that -- but Phaedra deserves a slice of happiness. Sending sexy boudoir pics to Apollo to enjoy in the comfort of his cell isn't exactly anyone's idea of a good time. You know, except for Apollo. He'll have his copies of Donkey Booty and old texts from Kenya Moore to keep him warm at night.

Do you think Phaedra should leave Apollo?

If appollo is going to jail then Teresa and Joe should both go to jail. No reason why she shouldn't do time for what she did. Fraud is just as bad as what he did.

If Georgia prisons are anything like California's, he will be out in a couple of years, if that. Especially for non-violent offenses like the ones he has been convicted of. Not that it's nothing, it's something for sure and hopefully he learns his lesson, but I won't ever cast judgement on a woman in her position, what she decides to do as far as their marriage is concerned is their business. But kudos to you for trying to incite people to cast judgement on a woman in a tough predicament.

Considering her children are very young I doubt they know what's going on.

Moderators can cut out this sentence if they want, but anybody at Stir aware of the marketing/ad from "gursan" that was posted here? ANYWAY: Yes, it's time for Phaedra to start making plans to end the marriage. She has given Apollo a fair chance, even during his questionable behavior with Kenya. Phaedra clearly is a spiritual, just person, but to forgive does not mean to condone; nor does compassion mean being walked on. Sad, very sad, when families need to break up, but there are (or should be) real consequences to unlawful, deceitful acts.

Their marriage was on the rocks before the sentencing. I appeared that Apollo no longer wanted the family life anyway. By the way he is serving federal time which means you do all of the time--the whole 8 yrs. The little baby wont even know him because his is only . I just don't see Phaedra running to the jail with the kids. I see her getting a divorce though! Also at Kandi's wedding she made a comment about Kandi's prenup saying "get it signed girl that's right leave with what you came with". I think she was referring to Apollo
