The cast members of the Real Housewives may have many talents, but one thing they’re all good at is being bad. But some of them are worse than others. Here’s a look at what some of our badly-behaving ladies have been up to lately:
The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Part 1 Recap: Porsha gets Physical >>>
Apollo’s in Trouble
Apollo Nida, husband of The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, was charged with fraud earlier this year. Now his accomplice, Gayla St. Julien, has been sentenced to 61 months (about five years) in prison after pleading guilty to “conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud and aggravated identity theft,” according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
The two worked together from 2009 until 2013 when the federal government charged both Apollo and Gayla with the same charges. According to her, the two of them laundered approximately $3 million together through fraudulent accounts.
“I feel good about the support I’m getting,” Apollo told RadarOnline. “All the support’s been needed. It’s an uphill battle, but we’re still staying positive.”
Apollo is still working on a plea deal of his own with the federal government.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 6 air date will be delayed while star Teresa Giudice waits to be sentenced after pleading guilty to fraud cases of her own.
“Obviously, Teresa is going to be a key character in the upcoming season, and Bravo wants to maximize her storyline,” an insider told RadarOnline. “Having Teresa available to do press interviews and promotions is essential.”
Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, pleaded guilty to multiple counts of fraud last month. Joe could serve from 37 to 46 months in jail, while Teresa is looking at 21 to 27 months, although she is still holding out hope for house arrest.
“Teresa’s legal team absolutely won’t let her do any interviews before the sentencing hearing because it could impact her sentence,” the insider said. “If Teresa was out doing press interviews promoting RHONJ before the July 8 sentencing, it would look like she wasn’t taking the process seriously which she definitely is. After the sentence is handed down, it’s expected Bravo will officially give season 6 a premiere date.”
Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa and Joe Giudice in Massive Debt >>>
We’ve heard from Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks about the brawl that happened on the first part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, but what does the Queen of Atlanta, NeNe Leakes, have to say about it?
“I’ve sat through many reunion shows, but this one takes the cake for me,” she wrote on her personal blog. “My feelings are simple! You TAUNT, you INVADE people’s personal space, you PUSH, you PROVOKE, you LIE and yet you don’t condone violence! Well, what message are you sending?”
NeNe, like Porsha, also thinks she has been personally victimized by Kenya Moore throughout the season.
“I feel like I’ve been put in provoking situations all season,” NeNe wrote. “If I had reacted in a violent manner in any of these situations I would be considered the bad one, the one that is wrong, the one that is mean. But at the same time is all of THIS really okay? When is it ‘okay’ to BULLY someone, then question retaliation?”
