'Real Housewives' Hubby

Pleads Guilty in Massive ID Theft Scheme

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.

I can't believe Phaedra married him. Knowing also that he had been in prison before. A leopard can't change their spots. This is what happens when you're so desperate to marry. So sad for those innocent children.

This was just a cover to get back to his prison wife. Much tighter than his ratchet wife.

Ugh Apollo...you have an amazing son like little Ayden who deserves a father like Obama but instead he has you for a dad... a two-time felon and idiot who humiliates his mother on national television. Ayden obviously inherited his mother's intelligence genes.

What happened to the 2.3 million he was laundering? Really don't believe his wife Phaedra didn't notice a few extra million dollars that her husband was spending and it wasn't coming from her bank account. Yeah ,right she didn't know.
