As Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida awaits his trial for identity theft and fraud, Bravo is reportedly scrambling to nix the couple’s spin-off show, RadarOnline.com has learned.

“Phaedra and Apollo were doing a spin-off show, which is called Rich People’s Problems, and it was supposed to premiere later on this year,” Wendy, who has had a long-standing feud with the pair, said on her daytime show this week.

“It follows Phaedra as she does the legal eagle thing for rich people in Atlanta. She’s perfectly boring on The Housewives, so God only knows why they would give her a spin-off show.

“Now that Apollo’s facing up to 30 years in prison, for bank fraud and identity theft — Bravo wants to wash their hands of that little spin-off show,” she added.

As Radar has reported, Nida will face a federal judge over allegations he created fake companies, opened fake bank accounts, and cashed stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.

He surrendered to authorities on January 23, and was released on a $25,000 pretrial bond. He recently scored a legal victory when the judge in the case granted his request to have the trial pushed back to late March, so he may review the government’s case against him and potentially take a plea deal.

This isn’t the first time he’s had serious trouble with the law. Nida spent five years in prison for violating federal racketeering laws related to auto title fraud.
