Real Housewives’ Apollo Nida Gives Teresa Giudice Prison Advice

December 16, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida, currently serving an eight-year prison sentence, gave some advice to Real Housewives star Teresa Giudice.

Guidice will start a 15-month prison sentence next month for fraud charges.

Nida said that she needs to “stay humble and don’t act better than anyone,” according to InTouch. He also said she’ll have to get used to the bad food. “You have to eat or you won’t make it,” added Nida.

A few days ago, Nida said that he would legally fight his wife Phaedra Parks if she files for divorce.

“I will not walk away empty-handed, considering all I’ve put into the marriage over the five years,” he told InTouch. “That is completely fair, I think. It wouldn’t be right for her to just take everything and leave me with nothing to come home to.”

Nida also complained he hasn’t been able to see his two sons.

“I can’t see why she would continue to hurt me by not allowing me to see my boys,” he said.

Last week, Parks told “Everything is good! I have wonderful parents, a wonderful team that is very supportive. It takes a village to be a successful mom. I have a great staff with great people that are very supportive.”

She continued: “You know, challenges make people who they are, makes you stronger! I have never really focused on certain challenges because at the end of the day, challenges lead to more success.”

Parks also said that Nida is “fine” while in prison.

A rep for Parks, Steve Honig, has said the divorce “is proceeding as planned.” He added, “While Phaedra and the boys [Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 18 months] do speak with Apollo regularly, there have been absolutely no discussions about reconciling.”
