The Fraud of Bravo's 'Real Housewives' Husbands

Fraud is the place to be if you're a Real Housewives husband.

Bravo's Real Housewives franchise husbands are keeping the reality television gossip mills grinding.

First, Real Housewives of Atlanta's Apollo Nida landed an eight-year federal prison sentence for fraud. After he'd already been convicted for racketeering in 2004. Then, Mr. Phaedra Parks learned on Thursday that all that fraud money hadn't disappeared into the ether, since there was still the $1.9 million in restitution money to pay back.


According to the AJC's reporter Rodney Ho in "‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ briefs: Apollo Nida restitution, Porsha Williams, Kandi Burruss," when finally released from prison in 2022 the convict will be forced to pay back at a minimum of $250 a month. Doing the math, that's a little over 630 years. Ouch. Even at $10,000 a month, that'd still take 74 years. Doubtful he'd live to be 117.

And the breakdown of theft is staggering for the average worker. He owes JP Morgan Chase Bank a whopping $828,000 while the next $277,000 belongs to Campus USA Credit Union. UP2Drive BMW Bank is a paltry $100,000 sum.

Needless to say, it's a lost cause to say that $1.9 million be returned quickly. Along with marriage since Nida slammed his marriage on Atlanta's B100's radio hosts. People's Jeff Nelson notes the married man was a little angry in "Convicted Real Housewives of Atlanta Star Apollo Nida Slams Wife Phaedra." Okay, may be a bit more than expected. "I mean, my wife didn't even f------g show up for my sentencing, so I'm still kind of salty about that."


He doesn't want to be a bad father since he knows what that's like and loves his kids. "Coming from a non-father, non-mother background, I think at the end of the day, I feel sad and disappointed that I let my little man down."

Of course, he had to be a little apologetic to the public, right? "This is hell." Must be hard work stealing from people.

What is it with Housewives husbands and fraud? Does he pal around with Real Housewives of New Jersey Joe Guidice?

Speaking of Joe, the Guidice father could face up to 46 months in prison-plus that pesky deportation option if the government pushes the subject. Asbury Park Press's Chris Jordan continues the breakdown in "'Real Housewives' meets the Jersey Shore". And Teresa could get 27 months for her part in the scheme. Somehow Bravo's stealthy edit this season shows a family in the middle of a crisis.


You know, the same people who defrauded banks for some serious money. The original July 8 sentencing was moved back since Joe's father suddenly died. But the sentencing day in a U.S. District Court in Newark is still on looming over like a thundercloud.

And if Bravo was banking on the Guidice's legal troubles to draw in viewers? They're sadly mistaken. Turns out the sixth season of New Jersey had the lowest premiere ratings for the entire series. Jethro Nededog from The Wrap reports only 1.2 million viewers tuned in for the first viewing. Even with 2.1 million total viewers, it's the series second-lowest premiere audience.


"'Real Housewives of New Jersey' Season 6 earns series' lowest premiere ratings" puts a pretty grim spin on what the audience really want to view, and if Bravo can keep up with demands.

The Real Housewives of New York franchise has faced similar decline in numbers. And New York was even delayed for quite while. Some wonder if it's simply viewer fatigue. The constantly arguing Housewives aren't bringing in the numbers.

Bravo's primetime schedule currently has Orange County, New York (season finale on Monday, July 21), and New Jersey on. And before this cycle, Beverly Hills and Atlanta were just onair. That's a lot of the same format back-to-back.


 

During the latest Atlanta reunion, NeNe Leakes wondered if the husbands were gunning for a spot—especially Peter Thomas, who responded to Uptown Magazine. Looking at the husband drama, it's not hard to see the possible need for attention connection, but it looks like the viewers simply don't care. Not even for fraud cases and jail time

If you go by New Jersey’s numbers anyway.
