According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Apollo Nida, the husband of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks, on Tuesday received an eight-year sentence from a federal court judge for his four-year scheme that involved bank, mail and ID theft. Judge Charles Pannell, under sentencing guidelines, could have given him anywhere from 92 to 115 months. The government was OK with the lower end of those guidelines.

Nida, who was dressed in a tan suit and wearing a beard and mustache, questioned the 96-month sentence and appeared annoyed after the hearing.

Sherri Shepherd is selling her house in New Jersey. Sources say she put the home on the market a few weeks after she filed for divorce from Lamar Salley and a few weeks before she was let go from “The View.” Shepherd bought the house in 2012 when she and Salley were happily married. The house is on the market for $1.73 million. She bought it for $1.74 million.

Meanwhile, Shepherd and Salley are expecting a baby boy via a surrogate mother this month. However, Shepherd no longer wants the little tyke when he gets here because he was conceived with Salley’s sperm without her egg, and she reportedly doesn’t want to pay child support.
