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.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
