PHILADELPHIA — Nine days after leaving prison, Apollo Nida of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” fame was sent back to prison after violating unspecified terms of his parole while living in a halfway house in Philadelphia.
According to The Blast, the reality star and former husband of Phaedra Parks was taken into custody at the Philadelphia Federal Court House and placed back into the prison system. As a result, he may now remain inside a prison cell until his original release date of October 15, 2019.

Nida spent six years in prison from 2003 to 2009 for racketeering. Soon after his release, he orchestrated schemes to rip off at least 50 people over five years, pocketing at least $2 million. Eventually, the federal authorities sentenced him for bank, mail and identity fraud.
He was originally sentenced to eight years in prison in 2014.
