apollo nida (comparisons)
*Oh well. It could have been a LOT worse.

You won’t be seeing Phaedra Park’s husband, Apollo Nida, on “Real Houswives of Atlanta” anytime soon … unless the cameras were in the courtroom today to see him sentenced.

Yep, that’s right, Nida was just sent up the river, so to speak, to 8 years in federal prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 mil through phony bank accounts.

Apollo could have gotten more. A lot more, like 30 years, but the judge, acknowledged that he was cooperative with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets (a/k/a snitching) … and that’s why he got leniency.

Somewhere a crazy woman named Kenya More is winning, er, grinning like a Cheshire cat from ear to ear.
