Apollo Nida Pleads Guilty To $2.3 Million Fraud Scheme, Speaks Out


Real Housewives of Atlanta husband Apollo Nida plead guilty to a $2.3 million fraud scheme on Tuesday, and while Nida is facing 30 years in prison, RadarOnline reports the Bravo star is staying positive.

“I just left the courthouse, and I’m alive,” Nida told RadarOnline. “I’m cool.” Nida continued, “I feel good about the support I’m getting. All the support’s been needed. It’s an uphill battle, but we’re still staying positive.”

Nida was charged in January and allegedly created fake companies, enabling him to access databases to find individuals to rip off. He allegedly opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.

“Don’t do as I do, but take my experiences and hope that it will give you a better platform,” he said, adding, “I have very educating things to say, so that people can embark on something new.”

And despite his legal issues, Apollo insists things have never been better. “We have a lot of good stuff to talk about!” he says. “Everything doesn’t have to be negative. Right now, I’m working on a three-part project on a new fitness series to compete with P90x and Insanity. I’m about to launch the pre-natal video for pregnant women. I’m working on a distribution deal. Working on Phine Dining. It’s a lot. We’re doing monthly subscriptions to the site. I have a lot of positive things out there to talk about.”

Apollo’s sentencing is schedule for July 8th, ironically the same day as the Giudices.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Not surprised he plead guilty. I think he’ll go back to jail and Phaedra will divorce him.

  • Nicole

    It’s a shame Bravo employs criminals.

  • loveatrh

    Phaedra will divorce him. It was obvious they have problems on this season.

  • One Rotten Egg

    Why is that criminal plugging his video and book deals ? Oh, because shady Faketra seems to be part of this and I believe she had knowledge or somehow been a part of his schemes. He is not taking her down thus she won’t divorce him. However, the chemistry between them clearly showed on camera at the reunion and her fake “happy marriage” was exposed.

      With the tight leash she keeps on him, she damn well knew about his illegal activities before and after the marriage.

  • Aunt Bee

    He certainly sounds like someone in denial. He also sounds like he doesn’t think he did anything wrong. Unbelievable.

  • gina

    Phaedra won’t divorce him. being married to him means he can’t testify against her.

    • Aunt Bee

      I hadn’t thought of that Gina!
