Phaedra Parks on Apollo Nida Split: Disappointed and Surprised, But Relieved

Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is disappointed that the fairy tale ending she thought she found with husband Apollo Nida became a nightmare.

She’s certain she made the right decision to divorce Nida, however.

“Phaedra is really disappointed with how all of this has turned out,” a source says of the couple, noting that Parks takes no joy in doing this, and it wasn’t an easy call.

Her estranged husband is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence for fraud. Apollo checked into prison last month after a blowout fight with Phaedra.

Cameras caught the reality TV couple’s last hurrah after the wannabe white collar criminal briefly went AWOL and stopped by the house they used to share.

Whether you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online or on TV, this is going to be a crazy season, but Parks doesn’t relish that either. She’s shell-shocked.

Despite Nida’s previous run-ins with the law, including a stint in prison prior to their wedding, “[Phaedra] had no idea any of that [illegal activity] was going on.”

Apollo Nida Gives Up

Apollo Nida is about to go asunder. As in to prison.

Just the same, “this divorce is going to be the best thing for her … Apollo was always really jealous of her success and the fact that she was the breadwinner.”

Apollo admitted as much after getting busted in a federal investigation this year, but the really sad part is that his ego, greed matched his level of stupidity.

His two young sons Ayden, 4, and Dylan, 1, now have to be without their father. No matter how great a job Phaedra does, that’s not a small factor in their lives.

“She knows she will be better off without him,” the Phaedra insider dishes, calling the attorney “a strong woman and a great mom and really adores her boys.”

We can only hope she can handle this. For an early glimpse of the new season, check out The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 trailer right here.

Nicole Dufault, N.J. Teacher, Accused of Illegal Sexual Relations With Three Teen Students

Nicole Dufault seemed like “an average mom going to work,” according to neighbors, but the 34-year-old did not act like it on the job, apparently.

The language arts teacher from Caldwell, New Jersey, stands accused of sexually assaulting three of her underage students, CBS New York reports.

The teacher was arrested on Wednesday and charged with multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

She stands accused of having oral sex and intercourse with three 15-year-old male students at Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey.

Dufault has taught at that institution for over nine years.

“[If the allegations are true], not only did she destroy her life and her children, but the boys who are involved as well,” said neighbor Maureen Messina.

Dufault’s own two young children have been removed from her home in the wake of the allegations, which left the community reeling and scrambling.

According to a letter from the school administration:

“The CHS administrative team, guidance counselors, student assistance counselors, school social workers, and teachers are actively supporting students and staff.”

“If your child is showing signs of stress in reaction to the events or the investigation, please reach out to his or her guidance counselor or a member of the administrative team.”

Dufault is not the only teacher to have been arrested for having sex with a student in recent weeks, months, and years, as evidenced by the rogues’ gallery below.

A Pennsylvania band teacher, Bridgett Szychulski, was arrested just last Tuesday in Pennsylvania on charges of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and statutory sexual assault.

That alleged victim was her 14-year-old student.

Brianne Altice

Brianne Altice, an English teacher at a reputable Utah high school, was arrested for having sex with at least one of her students.

Crowe Tweeted at 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning, “Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way… 4 hrs 30 mins, 7m (11.2km).”

Karen Klein Bus Bullies Slapped With One-YEAR School Suspension

No one can accuse the Greece (N.Y.) Central School District of looking the other way when it comes to its disciplinary response to students bullying others.

The kids who harassed Karen Klein with a 10-minute barrage of vile verbal taunts that went viral were suspended for the entire 2012-13 school year.

If you haven’t seen it, this video was the reason why …

The four seventh grade boys who bullied the 68-year-old grandmother to tears were all issued a one-year suspension from school, a one-year suspension from bus use and ordered to perform 50 hours of community service with the elderly.

They must also complete a bullying prevention program.

The four kids will be all sent to the District Reengagement Center – a special alternative education program – as the town is required to provide an education by law.

Klein received national attention after the video of the boys bullying her went viral. Sympathetic viewers donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to her.

She said from the beginning she did not want to press criminal charges, and that she felt sorry for the kids … though she does not accept their apologies.

What do you think of the kids’ punishment?

The Bachelor Promo: You Can’t Fool Him, Honey!

“My mojo is risin’ and all these bitches betta look out!” – Courtney Robertson

As if she weren’t public enemy #1 already, Courtney’s skinny-dipping escapades on The Bachelor last night elevated her villain status to new heights/depths.

Will the overshadowed other women rise up against her? And will it matter?

As Court continues to run roughshod over the rest of the competition for Bachelor Ben Flajnik, the rest of the house has had about all that it can take of her.

Emily’s efforts to show that Ben’s being played (Ellen DeGeneres agrees) have fallen on deaf ears so far. Will the women stand a better chance collectively?

If nothing else, it looks like they’re gonna try. Watch the promo for next week’s episode and beyond (around the six minute mark) in the video below:

You Don’t Even KNOW Britney Spears

Think you know Britney Spears?

In an interview with Pop Justice, the star says that you probably do not – and the real Britney Spears is a lot LESS interesting than what you likely imagine.

She opens up about bedtime (10:30 p.m.), her gray hairs (or lack thereof) and what she’d be doing if she weren’t famous (“probably a teacher”) and more.

Britney Spears Femme Fatale Tour

When it comes to Britney the real person, as opposed to the pop star, Spears believes most people only know about “half” of what makes her who she is.

“I can be pretty guarded with my personal life and I’ve learned that’s okay,” she says. “Your personal life is your personal life, and should stay private.”

Keeping people guessing, she says, is part of her job.

“Sometimes it’s our secrets that define us,” she says.

It’s no secret Britney Spears has had a wild life. So what would she do if her boys – Sean Preston, 5, and Jayden James, 4 – pursued pop stardom?

“I’d definitely keep an eye on them,” she says. “But if that’s what they really wanted to do then I’d let them go after it. I’d just be very protective.”

“I wouldn’t want them to go into it feeling fearful, and also nobody can really prepare you for this and what you experience,” says the 29-year-old.

“I’d just have to trust their instincts and help guide them.”

Learning to trust her instincts was hard for her personally.

“The biggest mistake I’ve ever made [was] to not trust my instincts,” she says. “It’s just about listening to your gut in different situations. I’ve learned to trust my instincts over the years but it definitely took time.”

We’re glad she’s doing so much better these days.
