It looks like two of the Real Housewives franchise’s most notorious husbands will soon be swapping stories of the Bravo-lebrity life behind bars.

According to Radar Online, Apollo Nida and Joe Giudice might soon be cellmates, as Apollo has reportedly been transferred from a Kentucky prison to FCI Fort Dix in New Jersey, where Joe is set to begin serving time next year.

As you may recall, Nida turned himself in in September of 2014 to begin serving an eight-year sentence for bank fraud and identity theft.

According to the Bureau of Prisons, with good behavior, Apollo can qualify for early release in 2020.

Giudice was sentenced to 41 months for bankruptcy fraud last year, but a judge allowed him to delay the start of his sentence until his wife, Teresa Giudice, finishes her own prison bid, so that their children wouldn’t need to be placed in foster care.

Nida transferred to the Jersey facility “about two weeks ago,” a source tells Radar, and he’s reportedly adjusted well to the the more relaxed atmosphere of the minimum security prison.

Interestingly, in Apollo’s first prison interview, he offered advice to the soon-to-be-incarcerated Joe, saying, “Stay humble and don’t act better than anyone; just observe your surroundings.”

Now it looks like he’ll be able to impart his words of jailhouse wisdom in person! 

If only camera crews were allowed behind prison walls. This could make one hell of a spinoff!
