Apollo Nida
-- husband of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks -- has pleaded guilty in a massive money fraud scheme ... after allegedly stealing the identities of more than 50 people and laundering more than $2.3 million.

According to the US Attorneys' office, Feds pounced on Nida last year after he and a group of co-conspirators cashed tons of stolen U.S. Treasury checks, and checks from the Delta Airlines pension fund ... then laundered the money through bank accounts in the names of people whose IDs he also stole.

Feds claim Nida bilked even more cash by filing fake tax returns and obtaining bank loans against cars he didn't own.

He pled guilty Tuesday to conspiracy to commit mail, wire, and bank fraud. He'll be sentenced at a later date.

Phaedra will get what she deserves and so will Apollo! The only persona I feel sorry for in this story are their kids!! Honestly i felt sorry for them the minute phaedra told she was pregnant hehe

I think rhw should do two seasons and breeze on, too much n too long leads to personality changes that would not have happened but for the show. They all get worse and plastic Surgery that ages instead of renewing. Idk, its getting sad.

Eyebrows should have raised when the funeral home popped up. Did they own a laundry mat too?

Poor Apollo. I feel as if he is so sub-par to Ms. Phaedra it is ridiculous. You can tell she wanted the "hot yellow pretty boy" over finding an intellectual match. When I watch them, I feel as if it's Big sis & lil bro...and that's putting it nicely....

You know what? The more I ponder on it, Apollo is far too dumb to have pulled something off like this on his lonesome...he's a pretty face. No denying that, but bird brain HAD help.
