'Real Housewives' Hubby

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.

Well, Well, Well -- he's finally admitting it after all of his previous denying and lying. If Phaedra stays with him, it is probably because she knew all about his shena****ns, or it's because she doesn't want to admit she was a fool! Needless to say, Kenya is probably sitting back saying "I told you so"! Again, well, well, well. P.S. Phaedra, please take your kids and run. As the saying goes, the first time (he was convicted) was shame on him. The second time is shame on you!!!

He should NOT be allowed on the TV show anymore. He also sets a bad example. He is not that important and can't even complete a sentence that makes sense.

Never understood why an accomplished attorney marries a former convict. Maybe because she was involved like alleged in Stanton's statement? Let's see how the courts rule on this case. Are Stanton's allegations BS? Let us see.
