Phaedra Parks' Husband Apollo Nida Starts 8-Year Jail Sentence For Bank Fraud Today
Phaedra Parks' husband has started doing his time.

The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star's other half, Apollo Nida, began his 8-year- sentence in prison Wednesday on charges of mail, wire and bank fraud, TMZ reported.

The couple, who have both appeared on the Bravo reality show since Season 3, have two children together. According to the gossip site, Nida "abandoned" his family in the months leading up to his going to prison.
He reportedly opted for a partying lifestyle.

Nida, 35, was sentenced for his crimes in early July. He told Atlanta's B100 radio station that Parks, 41, was not there for him and that he "doubts" their marriage will surive his stint in jail.
