#RhoA: Apollo & Phaedra at Breaking Point After Bombshell Stripper Claims
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida are still legally married, leaving fans to wonder what’s really going on between these two. Last season we saw major drama go down between The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars during season 7 of the Bravo hit. Phaedra seemed scared by the mere presence of her husband as he prepared to serve 8 years in federal prison for bank fraud and identity theft.

Apollo and Phaedra both threatened divorce, but neither one has yet to file; so technically they are still married. Viewers assumed the infamous garage scene last season between the two was rock bottom, and things couldn’t get any worse. Radaronline has released a bombshell report from a stripper, who claims to not only have spent time with Apollo, but she also claims to have been in Phaedra’s house while she wasn’t home. In a previous season Phaedra and Apollo film at a strip club with Cynthia and Peter, and it was almost uncomfortable to watch. Let’s just say this report is no surprise, Apollo definitely has a sketchy reputation when it comes to strippers.

This week a self-described “nude exotic dancer,” Cashuan Sidney exposes a crude night she spent with Apollo in 2014; he was still living with Phaedra at this time. Sidney released a new book, Sordid Panties: Celebrities, Thots, Money, & Scanal, where she exposes the Apollo she knows, and it could mean the official end of Apollo and Phaedra once and for all.

Cashaun says she met Apollo through a mutual friend in late 2014 at an Atlanta Strip Club, Follies, before he turned himself in for an eight-year prison sentence. “He drove up with his brother, Michael, and they escorted us and two other young ladies into the club,” she writes in the book. “We entered the bar and had a few drinks and Apollo asked us if we wanted to go to Lenox Mall, a popular mall in Atlanta that held some of the most high-end stores in the city. Of course we were game.”

Sidney continued, “We went to the mall and later as we were sitting in Bloomingdales, Apollo asked us if we wanted to accompany him to a night club where he would be heading later to meet up with a few other celebrity friends of his. We obliged.” She basically gives a paly by play of the night, and if this is true she reveals some pretty juicy stuff. “We went back to his home to get dressed, …” she writes. “It was evident that his wife was not in town.”

 While physically she wasn’t in the home, Cashaun says that evidence of Phaedra was everywhere. Some of her belongings, as well as family pictures were out in broad daylight, Apollo wasn’t even attempting to hide this was the home he shared with his wife.
“Inside the house I started rolling the blunt of pot and just kept my mouth shut as I looked around the woman’s house in awe,” she writes. “I couldn’t believe in were in Phaedra’s house.” If I was Phaedra I would be completely uncomfortable at the mere thought of some fan in my home taking in all the scenery, not to mention the pot, Phaedra is a lawyer after all!

“After smoking pot, we went back into the house to prepare for our night out,” she insists. “We walked up stairs and he escorted us into the baby’s room. Yes the baby’s room of all the rooms. He asked my friend if she wanted to take a shower in the baby’s bathroom and she said yes….” Apollo and Phaedra have two children together, Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 2.

Sidney drops a bomb when she discloses that she left the room, but Nida and the pal stayed there for a while, she reveals. “Were they both in the baby’s room taking a shower?” She confesses, “I don’t know.” Cashuan obviously thinks that something sexual went down between Apollo and her friend. These allegations could be the final straw, possibly this is “rock bottom” for Phaedra, we will have to wait and see.

Sidney has some strong opinions of the reality star; “Apollo was more a thot if not equally thotie as my home girl,” she accuses. (As per Urban Dictionary it“thot” is a synonym for “wh*re.”)

As we previously reported Nida is currently in New Jersey, awaiting Joe Giudice’s arrival, and serving his eight year prison sentence. I’m sure Apollo will be doing some sort of interview defending himself against these new cheating rumors, he always finds a way!

Do you think Apollo is guilty? Do you think Phaedra should divorce Apollo once and for all? Do you think Phaedra knew about the stripper’s being in her home? Do you think Apollo will speak out and defend himself?

Mary J Blige, Lil Kim, & MORE Reunite & Rock Out At “Hot For The Holidays” Concert
To celebrate 25 years in the game, rapper Busta Rhymes brought a slew of his celeb friends to turn up for Hot 97’s “Hot For The Holidays” concert, presented by Footaction, held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey last night.

Busta Rhymes was full of surprises, one of them being his homie Mariah Carey.

Looks like it will be an epic performance!

New Music: LaTocha Scott - 911
Following her buzz singles "What Is This?",  “Driving,” and “Infatuation,” Latocha Scott drops another tune from her #TOCHMOBTHURSDAY' series called “911.”

Boasting with her raw vocal abilities, LaTocha tells the vivid story of a woman who feels betrayed and taken for granted when she catches her man in the act of cheating on her. Feeling broken, she painfully contemplates committing the crime of taking the man’s life.

“I parked the car, walked into the house / That’s when I notice the purse on the couch / It couldn’t be mine, cuz I carry Louis / An plus the license left inside confirmed it was Judy’s,” the ex-Xscape member  sings on the first verse.

OH MY? Transwoman Escort Exposes Lamar Odom?
Transgender escort Madison Montag claims she is the one who convinced Lamar Odom to visit the Nevada brothel where he was found unresponsive after a four day drug binge and releases the text messages between them to prove it….

“I was like, ‘What time does daddy want this?’ and that’s when he made the call to the ranch and got the [chauffeured] car immediately [that same day],” she explains “Lamar made it clear that he wanted to get with me at the Love Ranch.” But when he arrived, he was greeted with a lineup of women — not just Madison.
“When we walked into the room, I got a very weird vibe. [Lamar] was looking down like he was ashamed. He looked very uncomfortable,” she recalls. “I wasn’t picked.” Instead, he selected blond prostitutes Ryder Cherry and Monica Monroe.
“I think Lamar felt he would be judged if he picked me initially because he is a high-profile person due to the Kardashians and his career. The other girls would have judged him and looked down on him, and he didn’t want that.”
“I felt a little bit responsible because I did invite [Lamar] there, but I’m not responsible for what happened because I was not with him. I did not partake in any of the drugs with the other girls,” Madison adds. (Hof, Cherry and Monroe denied supplying Lamar with drugs.)

Kanye West and his wife Kim Kardashian welcomed their second child – a son – early Saturday morning.

Kim took to her website to share the news with fans shortly after his arrival, and she is now following up with a message; revealing that they named their newborn son Saint West and that he weighed 8 lbs, 1 oz.
“I do like the name Easton,” Kim told Ellen DeGeneres while talking rumored names a few months ago. “I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it.”

She added: “I don’t think we’ll go another direction. It’s definitely not South. Every time someone says South, I just want to roll my eyes.”

Saint is joining his big sister North West, born in June 2013.
Congrats again to the couple!
