Apollo Nida caught a lot of flack for sharing that he has spent as much as $8,000 at the strip club, but he explains to S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown why that’s not irresponsible. Plus, he talks about infidelity. Is being faithful to Phaedra Parks a struggle for him?
Apollo shares more with Jamie in the May 2014 issue of Sister 2 Sister. Get an exclusive Web outtake now.
Jamie: What do you think about spending thousands at the strip club? You make money from the videos and what else?
Apollo: Well, I make money from the videos. One of my monthly checks from the videos is $32,000 in sales. I mean, we make money. I purchase properties. I flip them. I bought my last house at $12,500; I sold it for $46,500. So just do the math. So, it was a party and $8,000 was spent. But it doesn’t matter if it’s $5,000, if it’s $8,000. If that’s your vice and if it’s your money and that’s what you want to do, cool, because guess what? There’s no difference—and I hope you word this right. There’s no difference—
Jamie: It’s going to be worded exactly how you say it.
Apollo: There’s no difference than $8,000 spent on a strip club versus $8,000 at a Versace store or $15,000 on a Hermès bag. So for NeNe [Leakes] to sit there and say, “You should’ve spent that $8,000 on your kids,” well, you should’ve spent that $15,000 for that Hermès bag on your kids. It’s no difference. It’s what you wanted. It was your vice at that time. So I don’t feel like that was taken out of context because everybody has something that they like to do.
Jamie: Is it your vice now?
Apollo: No. If I go out, I go out.
Jamie: Does Phaedra worry about you being out with other women? You had several women at one time.
Apollo: I mean, people talk all the time. But infidelity—I haven’t had any issues like that. It stopped. Even when we were married, I used to always party with women [because] all my friends were women. I guess that was an issue, so I no longer kick it with women.
