Twitter has been on fire with news regarding the cast members of "Real Housewives of Atlanta."
The husband of Phaedra Parks, Apollo Nida, has been sentenced to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to federal fraud charges, according to Access Hollywood.
Federal prosecutors reportedly stated on Tuesday that the 35-year-old was also ordered to pay restitution to victims of a $2.3 million scheme during his sentencing hearing in U.S. District Court in Atlanta.
Apollo Nida pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit mail, wire and bank fraud on May 6.
Prosecutors reportedly stated that Nida and co-conspirators since 2009 had stolen checks and used victims' stolen identities to file fraudulent tax returns and fraudulent claims against the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to the publication.
This isn't the only RHOA news that has been circulating on Twitter.
Cast member Nene Leakes is reportedly having conflicts with producers regarding her paycheck. Leakes was rumored to have been hit with a major pay cut along with her screen presence being reduced to part-time, according to the publication Madamenoire.
Leakes put rumors to rest via her Twitter account last Friday by writing, "I am NOT comin back 2 RHOA because I was fired, NO I quit, NO I wanted more money, NO they cut my salary & yes all this is BULLS**T."
Even if Nene Leakes doesn't return to the RHOA, she won't have trouble finding a job in the industry.
After wrapping up as a "Dancing With the Stars" contestant, Leakes has reportedly taken on a 10-day role hosting Cirque Du Soleil's "Zumanity" show in Las Vegas.
