RHOA Phaedra Parks' happy home might be broken up. Why? Her husband recently got popped by the feds and based on her own behavior, she could be next.

Apollo Under Custody for Bank Fraud and Identity Theft

According to the New York Daily News, Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) star Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida currently faces charges of bank fraud and identity theft. As a consequence, he is already under the custody of authorities. Before you start crying the blues for Phaedra, think twice. Since her appearance on RHOA, Phaedra's behavior on camera and off has been questionable making her a possible suspect for the feds.

Phaedra's Questionable Behavior On and Off Camera

Accepting cash payment.
One of the shadiest RHOA scenes involving Phaedra was right after she joined the show. She accepted a stack of bills as payment for her services as an attorney. The problem: the event took place in the parking lot of her office. What lawful business person do you know that accepts payment in this manner?

Never quite saying what Apollo does.
Be honest. No fan of RHOA, not even hardcore ones (like me), understands what Apollo does to earn money. His main job appears to be taking orders from Phaedra. Also, when directly asked about his occupation, Phaedra glosses over the question with a nonsensical job title that makes her husband appear as though he runs a business - a business no one has ever heard of.

Her past connection to Angela Stanton.
Angela Stanton wrote Lies of a Real Housewife, a memoir detailing her rough upbringing, imprisonment and alleged association with Phaedra Parks. In this book, she accuses Phaedra (and Apollo) of federal racketeering involving stolen cars. In response, Phaedra Parks filed a defamation of character lawsuit. The suspicious part is that she never denied knowing Angela Stanton. See YouTube Videos about their alleged relationship - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

The departure from legal work.
Although she claims to be a successful entertainment lawyer, Phaedra rarely showcases these skills for RHOA fans. On the contrary, her focus is on creating other types of work (i.e. fitness video and funeral home) The million dollar question is why? Could she be trying to carve out several legit money-making paths for Apollo and herself? If so, good for her, but Phaedra's efforts might be too late.

Unchristian like behavior.
Granted, no one is a perfect Christian. Unfortunately, what makes Phaedra Parks' spiritual flaws standout is her constant reference to being a God-fearing woman. Obvious contradictions: her misrepresentation of pregnancy dates for baby number one, fascination with strippers and constant slamming of other RHOA cast mates. In other words, Phaedra's Christian talk is strong, but her walk is weak.

Apollo and Phaedra Both Might Be Headed to Jail

So, what's next? Phaedra's husband Apollo Nida could be going back to prison based on bank fraud and identity theft. And, unfortunately, Phaedra might be a target for the feds too. Hopefully, she's still in good with her parents for the sake of her kids. They might end up raising them for a while.
