Apollo Nida has not had an easy week, and the media backlash is just making things worse for the Househusband. Phaedra Parks’s hubby plead guilty to bank and wire fraud on May 6, which could put him in prison for up to 30 years, and now reports are saying he agreed to a plea deal that requires him to “snitch” to the government. And boy did he not like that.
Apollo went on a bit of a Twitter rant on May 7 after info was released about his agreement with the feds. The docs state he acquiesced to act in an “undercover investigative capacity” for the government, allowing investigators to record any and all conversations he has with other criminal suspects. But for those saying he’s a rat, he’d like to have some words with you.
When one such individual brought that up to Apollo on the social media site, he lost it, writing, “Ur dumb as f— its standard language in a federal plea agreement Michael Vicks TI's plea It's the same language different charge.”
Not only was the reality star adamant to deny his being an “informant,” he also took issue with TV hostess Wendy Williams after she made some comments about him on her morning talk show.
During the Hot Topics segment on the May 7 show, Wendy weighed in on Apollo pleading guilty and put him on blast for continuing with his criminal career after having two young children. “All that time trying to figure out the next caper to commit, you could have read a book on being a good husband and a decent father,” she explained.
That alone probably didn’t sit too well with him, but it was her following remarks about his reality TV income that really irked Apollo.
“Apollo didn’t have to turn to crime,” Wendy mused to the audience. “He could have been on the Housewives, where the husbands get money if they’re going to be on the show. They’re not going to get the same money as the wives get, but the husbands do get a little money. And then you can do a side hustle, like host parties or something… something to stay out of jail.”
In response, Apollo exclaimed, “@WendyWilliams FOR THE RECORD THE MEN DONT AND I REITERATE DO NOT GET ON DIME FORM BRAVO. ITS BEEN FREE LABOR FOR 4 4 YEARS.”
Now, we don’t know what the deal with the husbands is, though we know bit-part people like Marlo Hampton and Mynique Smith are said to be unpaid. But one follower claims Apollo’s statements are false and cites a Bravo “source” who says each Househusband makes $50K per season. Interesting…
