Porsha Williams isn’t the only member of the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast to run into legal issues because of money. Reportedly, Apollo Nida was arrested and charged with bank fraud and identity theft last week. Nida, who’s married to Atlanta ‘housewife’ Phaedra Parks, is accused of opening bank accounts under stolen identities to commit bank and check fraud in cahoots with a woman by the name of Gayla St. Julien. According to Access Atlanta:

“Nida would allegedly steal real people’s identities and have St. Julien pretend to be them to open bank accounts. She would then deposit fraudulent auto loan checks, stolen U.S. Treasury checks, stolen retirement checks issued to Delta Airlines employees, and checks in the names of real people that were owed unclaimed property from various state and federal government agencies, according to the criminal complaint.

He also opened a fake auto dealership (such as Ferrari Autohaus) and apply for auto loans in the names of stolen identities.”

Along with St. Julien’s claims, authorities reportedly have taped conversations between St. Julien and Nida in which he talks about many of his schemes. Apollo famously served time in prison federal from 2004 to 2009 on racketeering charges related to auto title fraud. I wonder how much of his latest legal drama will play out in front of Bravo’s cameras. Now THAT is reality TV!!
