Real Housewives of Atlanta Drama Takes Center Stage


Sunday night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta got out of control when a couple’s night organized by Nene leakes turned into fight night.

What started out as innocent and fun, but when Kenya Moore showed up more than an hour late with her assistant Brandon DeShazer things got tense.

Kenya’s arrival was her first face-to-face appearance with Chris and Natalie  whom she accused of having a common law marriage, something that Chris did not appreciate at all. Chris addressed Kenya and grabbed her arm which sent Brandon into defense mode as he told Chris not to touch Kenya.

From there chaos ensured.

Peter Thomas got between the men to stop the altercation from progressing any further, but for some unknown reason Apollo charged at Brandon and began to choke and pummel him.

“Apollo is out of his mind, beating Brandon as though he is in his jail cell fighting for his virginity,” Kenya told the “RHOA” cameras. “Apollo came over to get it started. He wanted a piece of Brandon.”

He eventually calms down, but the episode ends with Apollo escaping being restrained and making his way back towards Brandon.

The chaos is to be continued, but looks like it will be another crazy episode when The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns February 9 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.

In other RHOA drama, Phaedra Parks’ Husband Apollo Nida was charged with bank fraud and identity theft on Friday.

In a written affidavit obtained by the Atlanta Constitution, U.S. Secret Service Agent in the Counterfeit and U.S. Treasury Check Squad, Alexandre Herrera, charged that Nida created fake companies, enabling him to access databases to find individuals to rip off. He opened fake bank accounts under those real names and funneled stolen U.S. Treasury checks and auto loan proceeds into those accounts.

He was implicated during an investigation into Gayla St. Julien who Herrera said was opening bank accounts under stolen identities to commit bank and check fraud.

This incident isn’t Apollo’s first run-in with the Feds. He spent 2004-2009 in jail for violating federal racketeering laws related to auto title fraud.

The U.S. District Judge Gerrilyn G. Brill released Nida on a pretrial bond of $25,000. A preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 12, 2014.
