Brandon DeShazer Decides Not to Press Charges Against Apollo Nida — But Should He Have?

Real Housewives of Atlanta's epic two-part pajama party left our favorite Bravolebrities with a few bumps and bruises — namely Kenya Moore's assistant, Brandon DeShazer, who suffered a black eye and a cracked rib after an intense pillow fight with Phaedra Parks' husband, Apollo Nida. As Brandon points out, that's a potential felony … the last thing Apollo needs right now considering his other pending criminal charges!

But in the February 9 episode we learn that Brandon decides to take the moral high road and not press charges against Apollo.

"This is what I do know. I hold all the cards. All of the cards," he tells Kenya. "If this was just him and Phaedra, trust me. But what I keep thinking about is Aiden and their newborn. Do you know what I mean?"

While Kenya doesn't necessarily agree with Brandon's decision, she commends him for not pressing charges.

"If it had been my decision," she says, "Apollo would be behind bars because that's where gorillas belong." Them's fightin' words!

Meanwhile, Apollo has a much different side of the story, claiming his actions came from a good place.

"I was having a good time actually, until the madness came," he recounts. "And then Brandon fell down on the bean bag. So when he fell on the bean bag, that's when I put my shoes on. When he was getting up off the bean bag, I just saw a lot of rage in his eyes so I tried to run over there and do this number but apparently whatever I tried to do wasn't appropriate. I was just trying to hold him back and then I know I got hit and I just got carried away."

Sounds like just another game of he said, he said!

But whose side are you on? Tell us below if you think Brandon should have pressed charges against Apollo.
