Apollo Nida, husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for fraud. According to recent reports, the federal government will be keeping an eye on Nida after he serves his eight-year sentence.
Based on court documents, Nida will have to complete 100 hours of community service after his release. He also needs to cut his ties with all convicted felons and stay clear of places where alcohol and drugs are sold illegally. Furthermore, he is banned from carrying firearms and other weapons. He will also have to go to alcohol and drug treatment programs that he will need to pay for with his own money.

Amidst all this, Parks is keeping herself busy and staying positive. She was not present during her husband’s sentencing. Kandi Burruss, Parks’ co-star in Real Housewives of Atlanta, said that her friend is doing a good job coping with everything that is happening around her.

“She’s basically working. That’s how I deal with things too; when I have a lot going on, I just put more into work. I know that she’s promoting her book and doing the book tour and stuff like that and she’s not really trying to focus as much on what’s happening,” Burruss said.
Parks is busy promoting her book Secrets Of The Southern Belle: How To Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, And Never Have An Off Moment.
There were also reports that Parks and Nida are having marital problems. Many are wondering if the couple's relationship will survive while Nida serves his time. Parks is reportedly also concerned about her two sons Ayden and Dylan growing up without their father.
