It seems Phaedra Parks forgot the part of her marriage vows where you stand by your man in good times and bad, and now her estranged and troubled husband Apollo Nida is calling her on it.

Nida, who got eight years for check fraud and money laundering and must pay 2 million dollars to make things right, believes his marriage to Parks is over. “I doubt it [that my relationship with Phaedra will make it through this.]” Nida told Atlanta’s B-100. “My wife didn’t even f******* show up for my sentencing. I’m still salty about that.”

The normally macho Nida admitted his wrongdoing during the chat and also displayed his sensitive side when explaining how the ordeal has affected him. “It’s been hell on wheels. I’ve asked God to forgive me,” Nida continued. “It doesn’t make you any less of a man to cry and shed tears. I’ve shed tears. But I’ve forgiven myself and I’ve had to move on.”

His biggest regret, however, is how his legal drama and frayed marital state will affect his son. “I love my kids I feel most sad and disappointed that I let my little man down,” Nida finishes.  “I’m still human at the end of the day and I’m remorseful.”

Aww, now doesn’t that make you feel sorry for poor ole Apollo?

Will Phaedra Parks Lose Homes in Seized Fraud Case?

Between the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion brawl of Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams, to the in fighting and friendship demise of NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey, the Georgia Peach gals are sure earning their rep as the most-watched of all the housewives franchises. But wait… there’s more. Now there’s word that Phaedra Parks’ hubby Apollo Nida could be having big housing trouble.

Just to recap for those unfamiliar with the situation, Nida was accused of bank fraud and identity theft, but  waived his indictment because he’s looking to go to trial and get a plea deal. But in the meantime, the feds just might be seizing his homes. In court documents filed on April 24 it states, “….Nida shall forfeit to the United States… any property constituting or derived from proceeds obtained directly or indirectly as a result of” his alleged scam. And if the court can’t find, agree upon the property, the government expects cash payments.

But despite all of this, Phaedra might not be a homeless housewife after all. Nida and Parks signed a pre-nup before their 2009 marriage and have since kept all their properties separate. In addition, when the couple moved into their $800K Buckhead mansion in 2013, only her name was on the lease. She also owns a second home in Athens, Georgia. Records show that Nida is the owner of several low-end Atlanta properties, so those could be in danger.

That Phaedra is one smart cookie. But, she is a lawyer after all!

The The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion cat-fight hit the hot topics segment of The View on Monday and host Whoopi Goldberg officially weighed in on all the reality drama.

After showing a clip of Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore’s brawl, View co-host Sherri Shepherd read the portion of Kenya’s statement which stated, “Being the second Black woman to be crowned Miss USA, there are little girls who look up to me. I would never want those girls, my nieces or my future children to see me fighting.”

But Whoopi wasn’t having any of it. The Oscar winner looked directly into the camera and said, “I will ask you Kenya, do you think it was okay for you to provoke people?” she asked. “Because if you’re worried about your image and how people are gonna see you, I don’t know if messing with people like this,” Goldberg then pantomimed the scepter poking and talking with a megaphone in the manner that Moore antagonized Williams, “is the right thing to do.”

Then Goldberg got back up in her sentiments from the day’s guest View cohost Hot 97’s Angie Martinez who added, “Don’t start none, won’t be none.”

Nuff said. Any questions?

Kenya Moore Blasts Porsha Stewart for her Underground Railroad Confusion

Anyone who doubted Kenya Moore’s ability to the be the voice of reason on the Real Housewives of Atlanta missed the reality’s star comments on her costar Porsha Stewart’s take on the historical Underground Railroad.

Here’s a recap for those of viewers of the Bravo reality series who may be living under a rock: the Georgia Peach ladies were on a Freedom Trail tour in Savannah, when Stewart blurted out that she thought the Underground Railroad was an actual train.

When the tour guide showed the group  ventilation holes in a church floor and explained how, “people crawled under to escape slavery,” Porsha’s reply was confusion personified. “There has to be an opening for the railroad at some point,” Stewart said. “Somebody is driving the train. It’s not electric like what we have now.”

Moore lit into her co-star via her Bravo blog. “When Porsha was perplexed at how the train operated or ‘who went down there first to make room because they didn’t have electric trains like we do now,’ I became incensed…” Kenya said. “It was crystal clear that Porsha did not know that the Underground Railroad was not a literal train!”

But the former beauty queen didn’t just stop there. She continued, “It’s easy to laugh and call her dumb, but the reality is even more painful – WE have failed her. Our educational system has failed her, anyone who coddled her or encouraged her to focus on her makeup, weave, and shoes to find a man to take care of her rather than her education has failed her,” Moore said. “Anyone laughing at this gross ignorance has failed her.”

Finally, Moore made reference to Stewart’s late grandfather Hosea Williams, a prominent Civil Rights activist in Atlanta when she said, “Porsha is an embarrassment to her grandfather, his legacy, her family and most importantly, herself.”

Wow!

Ex-Landlord Calls Cops on Kenya Moore

The Kenya Moore eviction saga continues. In this chapter, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s star ex-landlord Conya Dillon Weems called the cops on the former beauty queen. The latest beef: Moore had Bravo cameras on the property while she was vacating the premises.

It’s believed that the five unidentified men were filming Moore’s exodus for upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. An onlooker added, “The landlord called the police because Kenya should not be on the property, nor did she give permission for anyone to be filming.”

This is the second time in the past 72 hours that the po po was called to the $3,999 a month, six-bedroom Roswell property. Moore voluntarily left the palatial spread this week after Weems filed papers to evict her from the home for not paying her May rent. Kenya allegedly owed $848 in past late fees and utility bills plus a whopping $4,500 in late fees and penalties.

But there is still a war of words between the two ladies. Kenya tweeted this message on Thursday, “I WON my eviction case it was vacated! We proved I didn’t owe any late rent. Thanks for all your support! Moving on and up.” But Weems told Radar, “She lied about renting the home and about her boyfriend amongst other things. She begged me to lease my home and live a pretend lifestyle she couldn’t afford. She will get hers in the end no doubt … I don’t live a fake life.”

Meow!

Tamar Braxton and NeNe Leakes are making headlines again — for making monetary gains and causing controversy. It turns out Tamar is not just a new mom, she also has impressive mansion-flipping skills. Braxton sold her luxurious Hidden Hills, California home just two years after she and her husband Vincent Herbert bought it back in 2011. The new parents purchased the 11,700 square foot abode for 3.4 million, but recently sold it for 6.9 million. Which means Toni Braxton’s little sister and hubby netted a 3.5 million profit. Cha-ching!

Leave it to NeNe Leakes to raise the bar of drama even on her wedding day. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star will become the blushing bride part deux when she remarries her husband Gregg Leakes at the Intercontinental Hotel in Atlanta on Saturday. The ceremony and reception will also be filmed for an upcoming reality special called, I Dreamed of NeNe: The Wedding. So not only is the star-studded guest list is required to wear “Old Hollywood glam attire” consisting of gowns for the ladies or tuxes and suits for gents, they will also have to sign off on a confidentiality agreement.

The document includes such high maintenance stipulations which include that  guests cannot be under the influence of drugs or medication, cannot have any pre-existing health conditions and cannot run for public office within the next calendar year.  Seems NeNe is repping team Next Level Bridezilla. Go on, girl!

TV audiences who’ve witnessed Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore in action knows she’s a fighter. Now, her landlord is about to get a taste of Hurricane Kenya firsthand. The former beauty queen’s landlord Conya Weems-Dillon is currently suing Moore for breaking terms of her lease agreement and stiffing out her for $848 dollars for one month’s rent.

But the RHOA star is firing back with a lawsuit too. Moore is countersuing for wrongful eviction plus slander and emotional distress. Kenya also added that she’s paid her $3,999 monthly rent in full for May and June on her six-bedroom and six-bathroom residence and that her landlord often enters her house without notice. Moore believes Dillon only made up the eviction story to sell a story to the tabloids and wreck her reputation.

Well the landlord got her media story in the press, but with Kenya on her heels she also had better watch her back.  For real!

It seems The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast has officially expanded just a little, wee bit. Radaronline is reporting that Kim Zolciak is pregnant with her fifth child. Unbeknownst to her, “The Tardy for the Party” singer was sporting a very obvious baby bump over Memorial Day Weekend. A source told InTouch Magazine, “She’s been trying to keep it quiet — she didn’t realize she’s showing as much as she is.”

For those of you keeping a Kim offspring tally, Zolciak has two daughters from two previous relationships, 16-year old Brielle and Ariana, who is 11-years old. With her husband Atlanta Falons star Troy Biermann, she has two sons — Kroy Jagger, 2 and 9-month old Kash Kade. Word has it that this was an unplanned pregnancy, but Zolciak is definitely hoping for a girl this time around.

“If Kroy had his way, I’d be pregnant all the time,” she told In Touch Magazine in a previous interview. “He loves my curves, he thinks I’m sexy when I’m pregnant.”

Congrats to Kim and family!

Brandi Glanville on NeNe Leakes: “She Takes Responsibility for Everyone’s Success”

Published by on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 10:00 am.

A mini-war of words has broken out among the Real Housewives, specifically between Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.

It all began when NeNe called Brandi a “train wreck” and mocked her because she said Brandi, “thinks she’s a gangsta” when Leakes appeared on Andy Cohen’s live gabfest, Watch What Happens Live. But it didn’t end there. Glanville picked up the verbal baton and ran with it all the way to the press.

“It doesn’t affect me. She doesn’t even know me…” Glanville told Radaronline.com. “…Get to know me first. Then she can say what she wants about me…” She continued, “…And I am gangsta! Why can’t I be gangsta? Because I’m white skinny and tall?!”

Leakes also reportedly said about Glanville, “ She’s just off the chain, she’s off the hook [with] a lot of things that she has to say, just so talkative.”

Glanville admits to being tipsy the last time she saw NeNe at the Bravo Upfonts in April at 2am. Brandi says there was lots of trash talking but they both were having a good time.  She told Radaronline.com, “I was totally tipsy… we were all just having fun,” Glanville added. “So I said I was gangsta. It’s NeNe… I could care less. I don’t know her.”

But Brandi confessed that watching NeNe ream her on TV has since given her pause on her true feelings about the Housewives franchise highest paying star. “As I was watching the show last night I felt like she was drinking her own Kool-Aid a little too much,” says Glanville about NeNe, whom she thinks could use an ego check. “I do think she was trying to take responsibility for everyone’s success a bit…everyone on the show brings something different and they’re all important roles.”

Kim Zolciak Files Legal Documents Against Kandi Burruss

The legal drama among reality TV stars just keep flying. This time out Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak has filed legal documents asking a judge to toss a lawsuit filed against her by co-star Kandi Burruss, according to TMZ.

To recap for those who don’t remember, Zolciak and Burruss were musical collaborators on the Zolciak’s one-hit wonder, “Tardy for the Party.” In Burruss’ lawsuit she’s alleging that Kim hoarded money earned from the single that co-wrote together. The song debuted on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2009. Burruss’ musical talents are well known in the industry. She’s a former member of Xscape and is the Grammy-Award winning songwriter behind TLC’s hit “No Scrubs.”

But Zolciak believes Kandi’s claims are bogus because she says Burruss was overpaid $6,000 for her songwriting contributions. Kim believes Kandi is only creating this ruckus to try to get free publicity for her upcoming new spinoff reality show, “The Kandi Factory.”

If it’s true, someone once said there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
