The Real Housewives don’t just cause trouble on screen, they get into trouble off screen. Here’s what a few of your favorites have been up to lately:
Divorce is Coming
It was clear to viewers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta that there were already troubles in Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida’s marriage even before he was sentenced to eight years in prison for fraud. But now even Apollo seems to think divorce is inevitable.
“I doubt it,” he responded on Atlanta’s B100 radio show when asked if he thinks his relationship will weather the hardships. “I mean, my wife didn’t even f***ing show up for my sentencing, so I’m still kind of salty about that.”
Apollo was ordered to pay close to $2 million in restitution after another hearing last week. But the thing he claims to worry about most is his two sons, Aiden, 4, and Dylan, 1, growing up in a broken home.
“I love my kids,” he said. “Coming from a non-father, non-mother background, I think at the end of the day, I feel sad and disappointed that I let my little man down.”
Phaedra has still yet to make a public comment on the situation.

Daughter Gone Wild
Another spawn of a Real Housewife has been caught behaving badly. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster’s daughter Bella Hadid was arrested Tuesday morning for driving under the influence, according to TMZ.
She was arrested at 4am after she blew a stop sign and narrowly missed an L.A. County sheriff’s police car. Not only did she fail her breathalyzer, but she’s a minor and was driving on a suspended license. Her famous step-father, David Foster, bailed her out.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey have been best friends for years. But it seems their friendship did not survive this past season’s reunion.
“There’s no friendship and there will not be. I am so done with her. I don’t even have words for her,” NeNe said on Watch What Happens Live earlier this week.
“We had a real friendship. I really loved her,” she said. “I feel like if she had an issue with me, I don’t understand somebody waiting six months to have an issue with you: come over your house, eat your food, go to the hospital, go to Fashion Week with you, travel for New Year’s, and then, all of a sudden, sit on the couch and make up some s**t. She blindsided me sitting on the couch.”
Wow. Harsh words from NeNe about someone she was so close with. Even Jeff Lewis, the other guest on WWHL that evening, was surprised to hear it and felt sad that the two aren’t friends anymore.
“I can forgive her but I don’t want to have a friendship with her,” she conceded.
