Phaedra Parks‘ prison bitch trophy husband Apollo Nida won the Dumb Bitch of the Day, Week, Month, Year and Decade award when we all found out that for over a year he’s been up to his old criminal tricks. Earlier this year, Apollo was charged with mail, wire and bank fraud after the feds investigated his shady, shifty ass and found out that he opened up a fake debt collection agency to get access to the LexisNexis and Equifax databases so he could steal identities. Apollo and his “right hand bitch” Gayla St. Julien (a real name and not the name of a character in Curtis Hanson movie) would use the stolen identities to find and claim unclaimed funds, refunds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, stolen U.S. treasury checks and refunds from fraudulent U.S. income tax returns. Apollo also opened up a fake dealership to get auto loans for cars that didn’t exist. Just like the grifting pieces of trash Teresa and Juicy Joe Giudice, the feds had him right by the ass lips.
Yesterday, Apollo, the God of Grifting, pleaded guilty in court as part of what I’m guessing is a plea deal. The Atlanta Journal Constitution says that Apollo couldn’t really deny he masterminded the schemes since all of the evidence was on his own laptop. In court, Apollo spit out a cold stream of bullshit when he said that he pulled those illegal schemes, because he was insecure about his wife Phaedra making more money than him.
In 2009, Nida had just left prison after five years for federal racketeering charges related to auto title fraud. He and Parks married and she soon signed on to be part of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
He said she was making far more money than him and he felt pressure to keep up. (He cited a $600,000 contract for her but didn’t say how long that was supposed to last.) Without easy legitimate ways to make quick money, he opted for this illegal scheme instead. But he claimed to her he was running a legitimate debt recovery firm and kept her firmly in the dark.
He said he even had a nervous breakdown at one point over the pressures to “sustain a lifestyle” befitting of a reality show star. And once he started the scheme, he found it difficult to stop. “I got sucked in and engulfed and lost sight of things,” he said.
Nida said he often didn’t think about whether this was hurting anybody because he was primarily targeting private businesses and the government, not individuals. And in the case of unclaimed property, what were the odds these folks would ever claim them?
Apollo will be sentenced in July. He faces up to 30 years in the clink, fines up to $1 million and he’ll most likely be ordered to pay the $2.3 million he defrauded from banks, individuals and the government. Us whores who watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta have also been punished, because we’ll have to watch the smugness shoot out of Kenya Moore’s pores when she does the karma twirl.
If Phaedra really had no idea that her convicted felon trophy piece husband was running schemes again, then she’s got the brains of the dead corpses she paints up during her weekend job at the funeral home. Apollo isn’t only a mega dumb fuck, but he’s also a pox on the gold digging house. What is the point of being a gold digging trophy if you’re not going to just sit around and look pretty and let your sugar mama pour the money on you? Apollo is a real embarrassment to gold diggers who work hard to get an ATM to marry them.
The sad part is that I know that Apollo has the personality of a phlegmy poop and his ego is bigger than Phaedra’s donkey booty, but if I was in prison, I’d want to be his bottom bunk cellmate. I hope they let him take topless selfies in prison.
