#RHoA: Did you know Phaedra Has Not Visited Apollo In 2 Years, Sons ‘Rarely’ See Him
Phaedra Parks hasn’t seen her ex-husband Apollo Nida in two years. RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the fired Real Housewives of Atlanta star hasn’t visited her ex in prison with their two children.
“Phaedra has not gone to see Apollo in like two years,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “The kids rarely see Apollo – it is just too hard on them.”
When Parks, 44, brought their sons Ayden, 8, and Dylan, 5, for a visit they “cried for three days.”
“Phaedra does not want to put them through that,” the insider said. “Apollo calls Phaedra every day or every other day to speak to the boys. It is 100 percent all about the kids at this point. If the boys have seen their father, it was not with Phaedra.”
Nida is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence at Fort Dix Correctional Facility for fraud. His release date is August 29, 2020.
Fortunately for Nida, he is not completely alone behind bars, as he has been engaged to Sherien Almufti since 2016.
Almufti recently posted a throwback photo of her man before he started his prison sentence in 2014.
“Almost four years ago,” she captioned the snap. “Although it was a very sad day for us because you were leaving for a while. We will remain strong. I’m still here as I said I would be and I’m not going anywhere!!!! Love you to the core baby.”
The photo received backlash, as he was still married to Parks at the time.
“Phaedra was aware Apollo was cheating on her,” the source told Radar. “Phaedra was already separating from Apollo, but they were trying to figure things out. That is why she did not care when he went to jail. He got caught in so many lies and she was over it.”
Parks was fired from RHOA when she was accused of starting a rumor that co-star Kandi Burruss wanted to drug and rape Porsha Williams.
Although Parks was fired from the small screen, Almufti will return to TV when she appears on TLC’s Say Yes To The Dress.

#HipHopNews: 21 Savage Pulls Out Gun During Pool Party Brawl
ATLANTA, GA – It seems 21 Savage was following 50 Cent’s “get the strap” mantra over the weekend. The Slaughter Gang rapper was caught on camera flashing a gun in the middle of a brawl on Saturday (June 9).
According to TMZ, 21 was attending an Atlanta area event called the Big Ass Pool Party and a large group of people crashed the festivities. TMZ’s sources claim the altercation began when one of the crashers began talking to a woman in 21’s clique. A crasher allegedly pulled out a gun, which prompted 21 to grab his own piece.
Video of the incident showed 21 grabbing a firearm as the brawl spilled out into a yard. One man was knocked to the ground in the skirmish, but no shots were fired. Police shut down the party upon their arrival.
Jeremy Meeks And Chloe Green Welcome A Baby Boy
A baby is a beautiful blessing — and in the case of Jeremy Meeks it’s a beautiful, billion dollar blessing!
Meeks, aka Hot Felon, and his TopShop heiress boo, Chloe Green, have welcomed a baby boy, Jayden Meeks-Green. The blue-eyed model made the announcement on his Instagram page, while simultaneously asking for privacy.
Jeremy probably predicted that his comment section would be full on people bringing up the fact that he has a child (Jeremy Jr., 9yo) with his estranged wife Melissa that he apparently reluctant to support financial. After filing for divorce in October 2017 — well after his relationship with Chloe became public — it took court proceedings in order to get the high-end cat-walker to pay just $1,000 a month in support.
Congrats to Jeremy and Chloe.
‘Down Home with the Neelys’ Star Pat Neely Secretly Remarries, New Wife Is Pregnant
Pat Neely — who achieved Food Network fame co-hosting “Down Home with the Neelys” with his then-wife, Gina Neely — secretly got remarried last year and his new wife is pregnant with the couple’s first child.
According to a marriage certificate filed in Troup County, Georgia and obtained by The Blast, Pat and Tamika Parks tied the knot on October 7, 2017.
Parks updated her Facebook page two weeks later with a photo from their wedding day, with the caption, “He knows how to make me smile. #HappyDay #IMarriedMyBestFriend #ThankYouGod🙏🏽”
Parks also posted photos from her baby shower last week and appears to be pretty far along.
Neely has tried to keep the relationship private and hasn’t posted a single thing about Parks on social media; she’s never posted a photo of him either.
Court documents also reveal that Parks added Neely to the deed of her home in Georgia in September 2017, the month before their wedding.
Pat and Gina Neely were high school sweethearts who split in 2014 after 20 years of marriage. Their cooking show premiered in 2008 and they wrote a cookbook together called, “Down Home with the Neelys: A Southern Family Cookbook.” According to his website, Pat has owned and operated restaurants in Memphis, Nashville and New York City.
In an interview earlier this year, Gina Neely told PEOPLE she has not spoken to Pat since the day she left him.
“I remember leaving with my purse and my duffle bag, and I was out of there,” Gina told the mag. “I haven’t spoken to Pat in four years.”
#BoxOfficeNews: 'Ocean's 8' Steals #1
Leading the weekend charge is Warner Bros and Village Roadshow's Ocean's 8, topping industry expectations and delivering the largest opening within the franchise (not adjusted for inflation). At the same time, A24's Hereditary smashed tracking expectations and even outperformed Mojo's lofty, pre-weekend forecast to finish within the top five, earning A24 its largest opening ever. Unfortunately, Global Road's Hotel Artemis, the weekend's third new wide release, struggled to find an opening weekend audience while Universal and Amblin Entertainment launched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom internationally this weekend where it grossed over $150 million, two weeks ahead of its North American release.
With an estimated $41.5 million, WB's Ocean's 8 topped the weekend box office and outperformed pre-weekend industry expectations, which anticipated an opening in the mid-thirties, though fell a little short of Mojo's pre-weekend forecast, which saw potential for a debut over $45 million. That said, the $41.5 million debut is a solid start for the $70 million production, which will now hope to holdover well amid upcoming competition which includes Incredibles 2 next weekend and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom the following week. The last two films in the Ocean's franchise averaged a 3.2x multiplier, which would put Ocean's 8's domestic run over $130 million should it follow suit.
Ocean's 8 received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences with exits showing the audience make up as 69% female and 69% aged 25 years or older. That said, the film played quite well to younger audiences, of which 11% were 18 years or younger and gave the film an "A" CinemaScore.
Internationally, Ocean's 8 kicked things off in 16 markets bringing in an estimated $12.2 million for a $53.7 million global launch. The opening included an estimated $4.7 million in Australia, $2.6 million in Mexico and $1.7 million in Brazil. Looking ahead the film will open this week in France and South Korea on June 13 followed by openings in Germany (Jun 21), Russia (Jun 21), UK (Jun 22), Spain (Jul 6), Italy (Jul 26) and Japan (Aug 10).

VH1 Prepping “Love & Hip Hop London” Spin-Off
The Love & Hip Hop franchise is expanding! Rumor has it, the hit VH1 series is heading across the pond, prepping Love & Hip Hop: London. Details are scarce at this point, but sources tell us that they’re already casting for London and filming has already began.
Over the past few days, a few of the Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood cast – Teairra Mari, Bridget Kelly, Brooke Valentine, etc. – have been filming in London, sharing photos and footage of their international trip on social media, along with producers from the show.
Sources tell thejasminebrand that one of the reasons for the London trip is to introduce some of the Hollywood cast to the London cast.
Love & Hip Hop documents the personal and professional lives of several hip hop and R&B musicians, performers, managers, and record producers residing in varying regions throughout the United States.
The original franchise version, Love & Hip Hop: New York, premiered on March 6, 2011. Its success resulted in spin-offs located in Atlanta, Hollywood, and Miami.
The series is known for its sprawling ensemble cast, with over 200 cast members. The franchise has generated controversy since its inception, and is often criticized for tending towards a narrative format more commonly seen in scripted genres such as soap operas, and appearing to fabricate much of its storyline. However, it is one of the highest rated unscripted franchises in cable television history.
The show has aired continuously since May 15, 2014, with an incarnation of the franchise airing nearly every Monday on VH1. As of June 11, 2018, 301 original episodes of New York, Atlanta, Hollywood and Miami have aired over twenty seasons.
What are your thoughts on the potential Love & Hip Hop: London spin-off?
RHONJ Star Teresa Giudice Enters Bodybuilding Contest In Glitter Bikini!
There is a new bodybuilder housewife in town! Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice showing off her super fit body during a bodybuilding contest over the weekend.
The 46-yr-old mother of four is pictured above flaunting her toned stomach, arms and muscular legs in front of judges during the NPC South Jersey Bodybuilding Championships that took place on Saturday, June 9.
Teresa donned a bedazzled purple bikini, which was not lacking in the glitter department, for the swimsuit competition to show off all of her hard work. She has spent the last few months training non-stop in preparation for the big event.
In addition to her bikini, Teresa also wore lucite heels, and diamond jewelry which included chandelier earrings.
Sources tell Page Six that Teresa “has been training since December five or six times per week,” and that she “drastically” changed her diet.
So, how did she fare in the contest? “[She] wanted to challenge herself physically and is extremely happy with how she did, coming in 3rd out of 8,” the source reveals.
Teresa’s family members, brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, were on hand to support her!
When it comes to future competitions, Teresa is reportedly taking a break for now.
“[She] has told friends she would consider competing in the future, but for now, no plans to do so,” adds the insider.
It’s safe to assume this will be featured on the upcoming season of the RHONJ which is currently filming.
