12/31/2015 12:40 AM PST

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Apollo Nida used a precious prison phone call to go on "TMZ Live" and make the case that his children should visit him behind bars.

Nida, who's serving 8 years for money laundering and bank fraud, talks about the heartbreak of being cut off from his family, his plans for his kids and whether his marriage to Phaedra Parks will survive.

It's the first interview in "TMZ Live" history that was interrupted by a federal prison announcement.
