Apollo Nida has to pay $2 million to the people and organizations victimized by the fraud case. Radar Online reports on Wednesday that the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is also facing eight years in jail for the same case. The money will be split among multiple parties, but it is not clear how Nida will come up with the large sum from prison.

Nida has been ordered to pay the full amount immediately, but the judge has added the option to allow him to make payments once he gets out of prison. The reality star was accused of fraud and found guilty on several charges. The combination of money laundering, bad checks and identity theft will force him to spend the next eight years in prison.

Nida owes money to a long list of organizations that includes the IRS, Delta Airlines and HUD. He must also pay back thousands to Capital One, Farmers State Bank, Patelco Credit Union and other banks. In addition, he owes money to several states that include California, Iowa, New York, Texas, Utah and others.

Although the other cast members on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” have criticized her decision, Phaedra Parks appears to continue to support her husband. The reality stars have admitted they are dealing with problems in their marriage, but they were seen together recently without arguments or fights. Parks has not officially filed for divorce despite the suggestions from her costars. Nevertheless, there are rumors she is angry enough to finally walk away from the relationship.

Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore and others have provided their feedback on the case, but Parks is not interested in their opinion. Meanwhile, Bravo is allegedly taking full advantage of this drama by following Nida and his trial, and fans have spotted their cameras around the city. The reality stars’ problems may appear in future episodes of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
