Today is the big day. Apollo Nida is set to report to prison, but before he turns himself in, Nida gave an interview to Forbes.
On July 8, the Real Housewives of Atlanta husband was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for conspiring to commit mail, wire and bank fraud. Clearly, he made some bad decisions, but he has just two major regrets.
The first is not being true to myself. When I came out of prison the first time, I told myself that I never wanted to be in this situation again. I had numerous talks with myself. I knew how to stay out of trouble but I lost focus. I didn’t stay true and I found myself quickly caught up in the same lifestyle I left six years prior. When I came home from prison, I wanted to be different. I wanted to live an honest life. I really did. I should have stuck to my guns. My second regret is letting my boys down. Now, my kids are going to have Christmas without their dad because of my decisions. Although I let them down, I will never stop loving them,” Apollo told Forbes.
And although he has a couple of regrets, it’s interesting that his controversial time on RHOA isn’t one of them. If you remember, the last few seasons exposed his somewhat inappropriate relationship with cast member, Kenya Moore.
When I look back on my five years on the show, I don’t regret being on the show. At the time, I thought I was supporting my wife and her role on the show. Now that I look back on where I am now and where I came from, I wish I had taken a step back and truly figured out how to determine a storyline without causing any controversy.
Speaking of controversy, when asked what he’ll miss the most during his eight year sentence, he neglected to mention his wife, Phaedra Parks. Hmmm…
Man, I’ve lived an interesting life. I am going to miss everything in my life. First and foremost, I will miss my sons the most. Ayden and Dylan mean the world to me. I grew up without a father so leaving my boys is extremely difficult. But I will also miss those little things that you just can’t do in prison. Things like the leather seats in my car, going out for a steak dinner, flying out of town; you name it, I will miss it. Overall, I will miss my freedom.
Well, it looks like we’ll get a bit more of an insiders look at Apollo’s finally days of freedom on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. He spent his last days on the outside shooting season seven and reflecting on his life decisions. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to spend that time with his young sons, Ayden and Dylan, but did not explain why.
Rihanna Admits To Having A “Fluctuating Body Type” — And This Is How She Deals With It
Earlier this year, rumors were running rampant that Rihanna was pregnant. It became quickly evident that the singer was not carrying, but we are now learning that the apparent weight gain might’ve have ben due to fluctuation.
During an interview with The Cut, Badgalriri suggested she has a “fluctuating body type,” but that she’s learned how to dress for the variations. “I actually have had the pleasure of a fluctuating body type, where one day I can literally fit into something that is bodycon, and then the next day—the next week—I need something oversized,” she said while promoting her new Fenty x Puma line.
She added, “I need a little crop here and a high-waist there to hide that part, you know?”
The singer went on to explain that because people’s bodies are constantly changing, fashion should not be mundane. “I really pay attention every day when I go into the closet about what’s working for my body that morning,” she explained. “I feel like that’s how everyone should go after fashion, because it’s an individual thing.”
She continued, “And then, if you take it further, it’s like: What week are you having? You having a skinny week? You having a fat week? Are we doing arms this week? We doing legs this week? We doing oversized?”
The fashion designer added, “I love to play with silhouettes as well, but I think it’s important to make sure that you wear the thing that works for your body the best, and that’s flattering.”
Rihanna is not just a fashionista, but she is also wildly confident in every garment she rocks. Confidence is major for the singer, who expressed to the fashion outlet that it’s men in black who rule dressing with confidence.
Yes. This is new for me; this is recent. I love a man in black,” she explained. “It’s so sexy and mysterious; confident and secure—all the things I love about a man. So, I’m into that.”
Ri celebrated the launch of her new line just last week. Click here to see photos.
