'Housewives' Star Apollo Nida

8 Years In Prison

Sentence Shortened For SNITCHING

7/8/2014 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Apollo Nida Prison Sentence

Apollo Nida just got an enormous break for singing like a canary ... he got 1/4 the maximum sentence for a massive money fraud scheme.

Nida -- who appears on "Real Housewives of Atlanta" with wife Phaedra Parks -- was just sentenced to 8 years in federal prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 mil through phony bank accounts.

The judge who sentenced him today in a Georgia court said Nida did indeed cooperate with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets ... and that's why he got leniency.  

Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years, so 8 years is a big victory.  

It's all relative folks.

Phaedra, you cannot make a silk purse out of a pig's ear. Try to stay away from Jeremy Meeks.

Somewhere Kenya is twirling and laughing on the phone with her invisible African Prince. I just feel bad for the babies who obviously were not on his priority list, and whose first years will be missed! They are like 1 and 3?

What A Loser. A Common Teef. I Bet Phaedra's Family Was Telling Her Not To Marry Him In The First Place. Looks Can Be Deceiving. She Got A Good Looking Man Who's Been A Launderer His Whole Life. And Being With Her Didn't Change Him. Serves Her As* Right. Hahahaha
