Wendy Williams has never been a fan of Phaedra Parks, so she didn’t hold back when telling her audience about Parks’ husband Apollo Nida, who faces prison time over his recent bank fraud and identity theft charges.
“It’s really bad. Apollo might get to jail before Juicy Joe [Giudice] with this one,” Williams told her audience.
“Apollo and Phaedra, it’s time for you to get off reality TV,” Williams said about the The Real Housewives of Atlanta couple.
The talk show host also conducted an informal poll amongst her audience members asking if they thought Parks knew of her hubby’s alleged, fraudulent activities before he turned himself in.
“Of course she did!” Williams shouted, as the audience nodded in agreement.
“Those Bravo checks aren’t big enough to buy a new funeral home and clothes for Mr. President,” she pointed out. “Somebody needed a job from some place.”
As Radar has reported, Nida will face a federal judge on February 12 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. Now, he’ll have to follow a list of strict conditions to make sure he isn’t sent to the slammer before his February court date.
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.
