‘RHOA’ cast member charged with fraud? Scandal rocks Phaedra Parks' family

The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans are in surprise and shock about the latest allegations against Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida. The cast member who is seen often in the reality show series was charged with fraud and identity theft. According to Access Atlanta on Friday, the complaint was filed by the U.S. District Attorney’s office in Atlanta and Apollo Nida has already surrendered to authorities.

The criminal complained against Apollo Nida is very detailed on the allegations surrounding an investigation from the Secret Service. With the charges being fairly substantial, the reality star was in front of U.S. District Judge Gerrilyn G. Brill. Apollo Nida was released on a pretrial bond of $25,000 and a preliminary hearing is set for Feb. 12, 2014.

The situation for Apollo Nida looks serious for him as well as his wife Phaedra Parks. While Parks has not been named in any of the legal proceedings, the reality star is an attorney who has a very successful part on Real Housewives of Atlanta. If the producers decide that Nida is a liability, it could jeopardize Phaedra Parks' story line.

Apollo Nida was previously imprisoned from 2004 to 2009 in charges related to auto title fraud. The outcome of this situation might have fans shocked, but also showing sympathy to Phaedra Parks.
