Apollo Nida: Engaged Behind Bars!

by at .

Well, here's some unexpected news.

Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida is officially engaged.

And what's so surprising about that, you ask?

Sad Apollo Nida

Well, there's the small matter of the fact that Apollo is currently in prison.

Yes, as you may already know, Nida is serving an 8-year sentence for fraud.

Earlier this month, we learned that Phaedra Parks has finalized her divorce from Nida, and the man is already taking advantage if his newfound ... freedom?

That doesn't feel like the right word in this situation.

TMZ is reporting that Nida recently popped the question to an unnamed woman whom he met shortly before beginning his sentence.

Kind of an odd time to start a new relationship, but who are we to judge?

It seems her identity won't be a mystery for much longer, however, as Nida and his fiancee will both participate in the upcoming season of RHOA.

We're not exactly sure how that will work, but production insiders insist that Nida will continue to play a role in the show.

Typically, prisons don't allow filming for non-journalistic purposes, but maybe the folks at Bravo were able to convince the warden that RHOA is a serious documentary series?

Whatever the case, the mystery woman in Apollo's life has reportedly signed on for a recurring role on the show.

Sources say she lives in New Jersey and visits him in prison twice a week.

Even if he qualifies for early release, Nida will likely serve another 3-4 years, so the woman is definitely committed.

Whether she's committed to him or to the idea of becoming a minor reality star is unclear.

Phaedra has yet to comment on the situation, and we'll probably have to wait until the new series premieres to get her reaction.

We doubt she's too bothered by the fact that her imprisoned ex has found someone new.

Being forced to share her show with the other woman, however, might be a different story.
