Apollo Nida doesn’t have be in court until late next month, which could give him plenty of time time to consider a plea deal.
Apollo’s request to postpone proceedings in his bank fraud and identity theft case case has been approved! He was due in court on February 12 to begin proceedings for the matter, but he and his wife Phaedra Parks filed to push that back to March 25. Now that the judge has given him more time, what does that mean for the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star?
“The Court finds that the ends of justice served by granting the motion to continue outweighs the public’s and defendant’s interest in a speedy trial,” court documents filed February 14 state. “Specifically, this delay will allow the parties time necessary to discuss a resolution of the allegations.”
Essentially, Apollo now has the opportunity to strike up a deal where he could provide federal investigators with some information in exchange for a reduced sentence. Currently, Apollo’s facing up to 30 years in prison for bank fraud and identity theft, if he’s convicted.
Meanwhile, Wendy Williams was dishing on the chatter that Phaedra Parks’ spin-off “Rich Peoples’ Problems” has been put on hold. “Well, she’s perfectly boring on the ‘Housewives,’ so God only knows why they would give her a spin-off,” Wendy mused. “She makes me uncomfortable.”
While it hasn’t been explicitly stated that Apollo’s legal troubles are behind Bravo’s change of heart about Phaedra’s spin-off, Wendy connected the dots. “Bravo wants to wash their hands of that little spin-off show, which is the right thing to do, Phaedra!” Wendy exclaimed. “Why would you even want to be on reality TV doing anything knowing that your man is facing prison time?”
Caught in a moment of speculation, Wendy said, “I wonder if Phaedra knew what was going on with Apollo. Hmmm. I’ve got thoughts in my head.”
