Apollo Nida from the Real Housewives of Atlanta gained 30 pounds of muscle in prison. Now he looks like a professional wrestler.
Apollo was the ex-husband of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Phaedra Parks. He was sentenced to prison for eight years on fraud charges.
Apollo, who appeared on the reality TV series with Parks, was arrested in 2014 and pleaded guilty to charges in a fraud scheme that federal prosecutors say stole millions of dollars from at least 50 people over four years.
But Apollo is being let out early – his official release date is October 15th, and the Bravo camera’s will be there to capture everything.
As MTO News explained a few months ago, Apollo and his fiancé Sherien will appear in the new season of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta.
And Apollo will look much different. Here are some pics of him now:
Apollo’s prison release date was supposed to be in 2020 – but that got pushed up a year thanks to Apollo’s acceptance into a program for non-violent offenders. Apollo, who is the ex-husband of The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Phaedra Parks, was originally sentenced to eight years in prison for fraud and identity theft in 2014. With this order, a full year has been taken off of Apollo’s sentence.
Apollo is currently incarcerated at FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey, the same federal correctional institution where Teresa Giudice’s husband, Joe Giudice, began his 41-month prison sentence in March 2016. Joe was later transferred to FCI Allenwood Low in 2017, and he was released earlier this month. And yes, Apollo and Joe did meet and got along really well while they were in the same facility, according to Teresa.
