Accused 'Housewives' Star

Dropped Thousands On Stripper Booty

'It's MY Money!'

1/27/2014 3:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

012714_apollo_nida_launch
Apollo Nida -- facing federal charges for bank fraud and identity theft -- habitually spent thousands of dollars on booze and strippers ... but says that's no crime because he only spent HIS money.

Nida told his castmates on last night's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" episode ... he routinely hit up nudie bars after he got out of prison in 2009 ... and would brazenly put receipts totaling thousands of dollars on the counter for his wife to see.

According to Nida ... his wife, Phaedra Parks, accepted his costly stripper habit.

We'll see if the the feds are as understanding. As we reported, investigators have accused Nida of creating fake companies and phony bank accounts ... and funneling millions into those accounts.

Check the clip. Man's got no shame.

You guys have to watch the entire episode before commenting. It was a question regarding who visits the strip clubs and how their wives agree/frown upon it. Apollo was saying he has no shame in going and boasted how much money he spent for all we know he could be lying. He could have spent money but no where near the amount he said. Also, I thought he had the right to a trial before being accused of being guilty. Kind of like JB being charged with egg vandalism and drag racing. You guys reported like he was going to do LIFE in prison and now no evidence to prosecute only BS TMZ videos and he will, like Apollo, walk away from any charges. Pot stirrers!

Put him in jail for 10years and then let him out. When he is out if he is not paying the money back to his victims stick him in jail for 15 years and so on. No freedom if he is not making restitution . What a dirt bag he is. Living the high life on somebody else's tab.

I feel like Apollo was bragging on the episode saying he sometime spends $5-8k per trip to strip club. However that being said this was filmed months ago and it is def bad timing considering he's under investigation. He was in prison for several year and may even still on probation which makes the charges even worse. I really hope this is not true.

Whoever wrote this doesn't understand the situation and is only parroting other web items that are making the connection between Apollo's expensive strip club bills and the fraud charges - but there really is no connection except that's some of how he spent the money. TMZ STOP BEING HACKS!

Fame has surely gone to this idiots head. He was a nobody before the lawyer married him. What happens after he's booted from the show??

Greg's the star of that show. His non-reactions are funny as hell. Everybody gets worked up except him. When NeNe gets in his grill he always has a funny one liner comeback that puts her in her place.

The Feds usually only charge you when they are sure they can win. This guy better be ready for a hard fight to stay out of the slammer.
