In case you haven’t noticed, I’m not really feeling the blog lately. So tonight, I’m gonna let y’all write your own damn Real Housewives of Atlanta recaps. I’m not excited about the manufactured drama between Claudia and THOT over Kordell, or Kenya’s new show in the works with Roger Bobb, and I know the real story on Phaedra and Apollo. So knock yourselves out in comments.
I don’t think we get to the part where Apollo actually leaves for Kentucky tonight. Lord knows, they will drag that out forever. But if you missed what really went down in the days just before his self surrender date, of September 10th, click through for the blow by blow.
After the Puerto Rico trip, the ladies were all home in time for Labor Day weekend with their families. Phaedra and Apollo were both home with family and friends at their house. In fact, the Labor Day weekend extended a few days for the boys stayed home from school with their parents. Phaedra and Apollo had some sort of disagreement according to my sources on September 3rd when they were going somewhere but didn’t make it off the street and went back home.
Then on September 4th, they did what I suspect was their final filming together with RHOA. Both Phaedra and Apollo were picked-up mid afternoon and did not return until late that evening.
On the evening of September 5th, Phaedra and the boys and all the on site babysitters and nannies left the house. Since then the only person around has been Apollo. He’s been washing his car and riding his new motorcycle. My suspicion is that Phaedra and the boys told him goodbye and left to stay with her mother somewhere until Apollo has left for Kentucky.
My sources tell me that Apollo is likely to roll out a bit early and stay with a friend of his in Nashville.
FACT: Apollo Nida left the house around 2 p.m. Sunday, September 7, 2014 and never returned.
This is not even debatable. I have a source with eyes on the house all day long, every day. More than one actually. When your neighbor films a television show at their home, that gets the neighbors talking. When the man of the house makes news for committing fraud and is sentenced to the federal penitentiary, you become on heightened alert counting the days until leaves. For the past couple of months, I received daily updates, photos and commentary on the comings and goings at Chez Parks-Nida. I know the comings and goings of the nannies, Bravo film crew, make-up wardrobe people, Bravo cars provided for filming. It’s all documented. My source is golden.
On September 10th, the day of Apollo’s self surrender, Phaedra and the boys returned from their trip to the beach in the afternoon, the Bravo crew was waiting to capture their return. The crew stayed for four hours. Around 4:30 two patrol cars arrived at the house. This has happened several times. in the past few weeks and in fact, just this morning two Comcast trucks arrived at the house to again work on the alarm. It’s new and malfunctioning and when it does the police are automatically sent. The cops were only there for five minutes on September 1oth.
Apollo Nida was not at the house. My sources immediately contacted me when the TMZ story came out about Apollo being at the house to say that NONE of that happened. That information is false.Phaedra’s rep will not confirm or deny anything only cryptically admitting there was “an incident” after 4 pm. The only incident was the alarm. It is possible given that we now believe that Apollo was not in prison at that time that he could have called Phaedra on the phone. I have no idea. But Apollo has not been to the house since September 7th. TMZ also reported that Phaedra feared abuse in an earlier story. Also false (AKA planted by Bravo/Phaedra). As I have said the whole family spent several days together over the Labor Day holiday so that Apollo could spend lots of time with the boys and his friends and family. There was no drama and no police were called. But I fully expect Bravo to show the TMZ story on RHOA.
I have no idea how Bravo will spin this. The cops were filmed by Bravo. They can make it into whatever they want. But nothing interesting happened at the house on September 10th other than Bravo filming for three or four hours.
