It's been quite some time since we last heard from Phaedra Parks' ex-husband, Apollo Nida.
Of course, the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star wasn't keeping a low profile by choice.
Back in 2014, Nida was sentenced to 8 years in prison on identify theft and bank fraud charges.
Shortly thereafter, he failed to report to prison on time, but he eventually turned himself and began serving his time.
In March, a judge reduced Nida's sentence by more than a year, making him eligible for parole in 2019.
And today, the disgraced 40-year-old strolled through the gates of Fort Dix Correctional Facility a free man.
Well ... sort of.
Nida will reside in an Atlanta-area halfway house for the summer and will likely be permitted to return to a private residence sometime in October.
But we're sure he'd agree his current situation beats the hell out of federal prison.
Nida will be permitted to seek employment, purchase his own food and clothing, and leave the grounds during scheduled hours.
Most importantly, he'll be able to spend time with his fiancee in surroundings a bit more intimate than a prison visiting center.
Nida got engaged to Sherien Amulfi from behind bars.
Though they knew each other before he began his sentence, Apollo and Sherien have never spent the night together as a couple.
Nida even crafter an engagement ring for Amulfi from the minimal resources he had access to in prison, and he proposed during one of her visits.
Here's hoping he's rewarded for his ingenuity in the very near future, if you know what we mean.
Apollo pled guilty to all counts against him during his trial and he was reportedly a model prisoner during his time on the inside.
"On behalf of my client Apollo, right now he feels remorse," his attorney Thomas D. Bever told the media after he was sentenced.
"He thought the judge was fair, and accepts his sentence, although he was hoping it would be less.
Nida and Phaedra finalized their divorce in 2016, just months before he proposed to Amulfi.
There was a time when Apollo might have reasonably hoped to be reinstated as an RHOA castmate (It's not easy to find work as a felon and ex-con.) but that at this point that seems unlikely, as Phaedra was axed from the show prior to Season 10.
But hey, today's a day to focus on the positive.
Apollo has served his time, and he'll soon be reunited with his loved ones.
We offer Mr. Nida our sincere congratulations on putting this dark chapter of his life behind him.
Presideny Donald Trump touched down in Great Britain this week for a three-day, official state visit.
But he wasn't exactly given a hero's greeting upon his arrival.
At least not by one very prominent British citizen.
According to The Sun, Prince Harry attended a private lunch with the President and First Lady on Monday, but he didn't speak very much to the Commander-in-Chief.
This same group was then taken on a tour of Queen Elizabeth's private art collection, but Harry chose to hang back as much as possible at this point.
An insider says he made a point NOT to be photographed anywhere near the President.
This British publication explains that Harry walked in with the President’s daughter, Ivanka, during this showing -- but then left her to talk to the Lord Chamberlain while the Queen showed the Trumps around the Palace.
"Harry was the third most senior royal in the room after the Queen and his father, but didn’t seem to take any part in his royal duties," an onlooker tells The Sun.
Royal commentator Ingrid Seward, meanwhile, offered a similar account:
“Harry did look grumpy and as if he didn’t want to be there," she said, adding
"He appears to be behaving in a rather immature way and letting his personal animosity take over from his natural good manners.
"Whatever his personal feelings, it’s his duty to support the Queen regardless and take a tip from his grandmother who has never allowed her personal feelings to interfere with her duty.
"It’s bad manners and rude."
One might say, of course, that President Trump has exhibited nothing himself except for bad, very rude manners -- so why should he deserve anything but the same in return?
Just a few days ago, upon being told of negative comments Meghan Markle made about him three years ago, Trump slammed the Duchess as nasty.
He added at the time, speaking in general of Markle as a member of The Royal Family:
“I think it’s nice, and I’m sure she’ll do excellently. She’ll be very good.”
However, the damage had already been done.
Thankfully for Markle, though, she never had to pretend to make nice to the President.
She remains on maternity leave and is not attending any official events at the moment.
As soon as Harry’s official duties were over yesterday, The Sun reports, "he dashed off to his exclusive Chelsea gym KX, where he spent 90 minutes working out."
He probably had quite a bit of stress to get out after having to hold in his contempt for the American President for so long.
Harry then chose not take part in the official state banquet at the Palace last night, despite it being attended by Charles, Camilla, William and Kate.
Can anyone blame the guy?!?

Legendary songstress Jennifer Lopez is ripped af, and she makes sure that her bold fashion choices flaunt all of her hard work at the gym. Case in point – this orange number that she wore to Monday night’s CFDA Fashion Awards. Her outfit was the runaway, and runway, success of the evening, and its viral popularity might have something to do with the fact that it affords us a look at Lopez’s ageless and sexy abs. And that it accentuates her perfect perky breasts.
Lopez was on hand to accept the Fashion Icon Award thanks to her decades of hotness. Remember the green dress she wore to the 2000 Grammy Awards? Ya, you remember. During her acceptance speech at last night’s awards ceremony she acknowledged how far the fashion industry has come in accepting curvy women:
Sitting in the design rooms of Oscar de la Renta, Versace, Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci and so many of you guys here tonight, people who designed and allowed me to get into their designs (with) curves like me. To say I was like a kid in a candy store was an understatement. And slowly, as curves began to be embraced, the girl who wanted to combine street style with couture began to blossom, and I’m grateful to all of you for that.
Where’s our acknowledgment? We’ve been accepting of women with big tits and asses for years. #EffYourBeautyStandards

Playboy’s reigning Muse of the Year, Angel Constance, is back with another knockout pictorial that’s sure to get you right up on cloud nine! The heaven-sent beauty languishes by the pool, showing off her incredible body, and shedding some info on her background in this interview…
“I’m from Toronto, and it’s freezing over there right now, so it’s an absolute blessing to be here,” says Angel. “We shot in this unreal house with a beautiful pool in the back.” Dressed in a lemon-printed bathing suit, Angel heads outside with her large watermelon floaty. Eager to do some nude sunbathing, Angel is effortlessly beautiful as she reveals her flawless curves for the camera. “I think one of the funniest things was when Cass asked me to dive for the last shot, and of course, my first try was a full-on belly flop,” laughs Angel, “see how committed I am to you guys?” Taking in all her surroundings, being Playboy Muse of the Year is a big deal to Angel, and she’s grateful to share these moments with all her fans. “Never in my life did I expect I would be modeling for Playboy — I’m honored,” she says. “Traveling and being a part of a creative community that embraces femininity and empowers women is more than I could’ve asked for.”

Every god damned time I turn around these days, it seems like Rachel McCord is sexy on a boat. It just happened again, meaning that either she has access to boats 24/7, or she looks sexy 24/7 and happens to encounter boats in her daily life. I don’t know which one it is, but I know that Rachel McCord plus boats almost always equals sexy.
It could be the same boat for all I know, they all look the same to me anyway. That’s right, I’m ignorant to the subtle differences offered by the boat industry in this day and age. Every boat coming off the production line these days is the same: white with chrome accents. Thank goodness Rachel McCord is there looking sexy, otherwise I’d be so hung up on the sameness of boats these days to even notice.
I’m also a big fan of Rachel McCord’s pokies, which perfectly compliment her sexy outfit. It’s one thing to be sexy without giving us an indication of your nipples, while it’s another thing entirely to be sexy and then call attention to them. Rachel McCord knows the score. She always has and she always will.

The world of streaming has made horror more accessible to younger audiences, so it makes sense that a studio might be willing to take a chance on a real-deal horror movie aimed at pre-teens. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is based on a classic short story collection that terrified virtually every child of the 80s, and now a new generation will get to deal with these haunting and downright terrifying tales.
Guillermo del Toro is on board as both a co-writer and producer, with Norwegian filmmaker André Øvredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe) directing. This gives the film some serious horror pedigree and this new trailer indicates that this is a step-up from the likes of Goosebumps, which is appropriate given that the book is basically the same.
While you could convince me that this might get slapped with an R-rating, I think they’ll stay just below the line and secure a PG-13. After all, kids do have to be able to get in to see this thing, it’s not like streaming where you can just steal your parents’ password and watch whatever you want. Not that kids do that.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark hits theaters on August 9.
