Apollo Nida from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" is back in the spotlight as rumors of a charity event scam surface. On April 3, Apollo is speaking up for himself in order to clear his name according to Huffington Post.

As the story goes, Chase DeCarlo of Dio Bambini wanted "Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars Kandi Burruss and Apollo Nida to host a charity event in May. Nida said he would do it but required a payment of $2,000 up front. DeCarlo wasn't comfortable paying him up front because Apollo Nida is due in court for his fraud case.

DeCarlo was afraid that Nida's legal troubles might keep him from hosting the event and that he wouldn't be able to get his money back. Fair right? Well, not according to Apollo. He was so offended by DeCarlo's suggestion that he might get stiffed that he took to YouTube to speak his mind.

In the video, Apollo explains that he signs good contracts. He says that since his wife is a lawyer and he has a lot of lawyer friends and acquaintances, when he agrees to appear that he makes good on it. He also says that speculating that he might not show up is damaging to his reputation and his Nida Fitness brand.

What do you think is more damaging to his reputation, Chase DeCarlo's skepticism about paying up front or Apollo Nida's past and current legal issues?
