As a follow-up to his eight-year federal prison sentence last week, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” husband Apollo Nida is required to pay back virtually all the money he stole through his various financial schemes to the tune of $1.9 million. The restitution hearing occurred this week.

I’m not sure if he’ll ever be able to pay all that back since his employment opportunities will be less than rosy once his term is up around 2022.

Once he’s free at age 43, he will have to give authorities in restitution at least $250 a month and 25% of gross monthly income in excess of $2,300. At the minimum $250 a month, assuming no interest, it would take him 633 years to pay off what he is owed.

Even if the husband of Phaedra Parks managed to make $10,000 a month for the rest of his life, it would still take him 74 years to pay that off. He’d be 117 years old.

The institutions that he owes the most money to: JP Morgan Chase Bank ($828,000), Campus USA Credit Union ($277,000), and UP2Drive BMW Bank ($100,000).

He will be entering prison sometimes in the next few weeks.

Read about his sentencing here.

Porsha Williams has a great temporary gig working the Rickey Smiley Morning Show’s “Dish Nation” segments. Claudia Jordan joined the show for the first time Tuesday as Ebony Steel’s replacement but will focus on the four -hour radio show for now. Williams will continue to fill in for the near future for “Dish Nation.” Staff said there is no date yet for Williams’ last day. Smiley’s show tapes its “Dish Nation” segments at Radio One headquarters in downtown Atlanta after the radio show is over. “Dish Nation,” a nationally syndicated show, is seen on Fox 5 locally at midnight.

Kandi Burruss, the most popular of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast mate based on polls I’ve done, had the best ratings ever for a wedding special on Bravo: 2.8 million viewers saw it as it aired. That was higher than the wedding episodes of Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes, which each drew about 2.3 million viewers.

***

Speaking of Kim Zolciak, her spinoff show returns tonight for a third season. I did not receive an advance screener. I may write something about it. I may not. Will anybody care?

NeNe Leakes is planning a clothing line for HSN. It’s set to be available July 28.

Kenya Moore’s mysterious “is he for real?” boyfriend will not be revealed anytime soon, she told StoS magazine. She feels publicizing it will ruin the relationship. She felt burned by “revealing” her “boyfriend” Walter Jackson season five. He later said he was a fake boyfriend and did it as a favor to Kenya.

Thank you It just gets on my nerve that Food stamps were originally slated for white people  so were  projects and the numbers (FACTS) shows that there are just as many of them getting PUBLIC assistance than we are, but yet we are labeled the ONLY  abusers...KMSL... The white woman that won millions of dollars and went on NATIONAL TELEVISION stating she did not know she could not still get food stamps when she became a millionaire.. She did not go to jail.  Well to me these ladies are smart enough and have SENSE to  capitalize off something that hopefully will die down  that is REALITY TV. No one is saying anything bout that Honey Boo Boo and DATING NAKED.. OOH and  GODA what about the DUMB DISTRICT ATTORNEY FROM GA That just quit her job to Be  a bachelorette??? I  sure know her mom and dad are real proud of her and all that college money down the DRAIN,.. OH wait she probably gat the HOPE SCHLORSHIP MONEY that we are struggling for with our kids,to help pay for her tuition's.... please stop getting mad at our  people when they start doing what your people have been doing.. GOOD OR BAD!!!!!! and MAKING MONEY.......BTW Goda, I pray that you get that hatred out of you  before your kids get older.. They will DATE A BLACK PERSON at Some point in their live.....

These women are no ladies. They are crude, devoid of manners and need to learn proper Enlish. Splendid example of how NOT to be.

You know, if I were a columnist or even editor for the AJC, I'd wake up every morning dreading the fact that a portion of my readers are ignorant, no-couth-having, non-wordly, never-been-out-of-the-state, still-wishing-Conferderates-won-the-war, pitiful people...I read several national newspapers on-line daily. Is it a surprise that the most ignorant, elementary, racist, hateful posts come from newspapers based out of Georgia, Louisiana and Alabama. Thank you, Lord for my east coast college education and exposure to other ethnicities, races, cultures, ideas and dreams. Because of that, I'll NEVER talk, walk, think or sound like some of you old, pathetic, see-the-world-in-one-shade fools....die off, already, PLEASE (lol). 

Hang in there, AJC staff, hang in there...a better class of readership is on the horizon..

MIA123,

Calm down. As you know racism is alive and well and unfortunately will always be. Don't let these people commenting ruffle your feathers.  They are just ignorant!  Let it roll off like rain drops.

You do realize that the AJC doesn't limit comments here to Georgia residents only, right? Kind of hard to do that with this Internet thing.

Btw, don't ever read NYDailyNews.com.....JUST...don't.

You cannot be for real… Spelled backwards really????? You do know what the word means correct? You are aware that you people assigned the name to our people but at the end of the day the word can mean you as well and for the most part is more designed to fit your people on their worst RAINY DAY…… You are killing me, you got the nerve to comment about sagging pants when I do not like it one bit, but the whites are doing it just as much as the blacks… The tats, the coping of the hair styles, the wanting to tan to make themselves to be darker to be blacker… So please tame your own before you talk about ours.. nd please teach them if they are gonna ride through the streets BLASTING music like some FOOLS please please go to a real shop and get the right woofers, tweeters and cabinets to make it sound just as good. No imitations of our life needed… CHECK THAT before you call us anything other than our GOD GIVEN NAME…..

People will imitate your coonery and bafoonery as long as perpetuate it. Why don't you focus on raising your level of existence beyond that of loud talk, swag, multi-colored plastic hair, foot dragging, speaking with slack in your jaw and other forms of "saggin" BS? Just a question
