Let’s get one thing straight, talk show host Wendy Williams has never been a fan of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks and her husband Apollo Nida — and Apollo’s recent legal troubles have only given THE WENDY WILLIAMS SHOW host more reason to dislike the couple.
“It’s really bad, Apollo might get to jail before Juicy Joe with this one,” Wendy told her audience before relaying that Apollo has been accused of stealing retirement checks from Delta airline employees and cashing other unclaimed checks
“Apollo and Phaedra, it’s time for you to get off reality TV,” she declared.
Wendy also conducted an informal poll amongst her audience members asking if they thought Phaedra knew of her hubby’s alleged, fraudulent activities before he turned himself into the feds earlier this month. “Of course she did!,” Wendy 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,” Wendy pointed out. “Somebody needed a job from some place.”
One of Apollo’s Twitter followers showed him an article with Wendy’s video in it saying that the couple needs to leave the Bravo hit, and he simply replied, “NEVER!!!!”
Ultimately the decision about whether Phaedra and Apollo stay or go is up to RHoA producers, but in this case the Parks-Nidas may have the odds in their favor. As Wendy mentioned, Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice (Teresa’s husband) is facing similar charges, and that family has yet to be given a pink slip. On the contrary, it seems like Bravo is hoping the Giudice’s legal drama will entice more people to watch the show.
Do you think Apollo’s legal problems will get his family booted from RHoA? Check out what Wendy has to say below and then weigh in!
