Apollo Nida is headed back to prison.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star was sentenced to 8 years for his fraud crimes that include identity theft, laundering over $2.3 million and cashing stolen checks.

Considering the maximum sentence for his charges is 30 years, the punishment is lenient due to his cooperation with authorities.

Who knows what will happen to his marriage to Phaedra Parks with whom he shares two sons.
