It looks like while former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Apollo Nida has been wasting away in federal prison, he’s been on his best behavior.

Lucky for him, federal judges are apparently paying attention to those who keep their noses out of trouble.

According to a report from Entertainment Tonight, Phaedra Parks’ ex-husband is going to be released from prison a whole year earlier than expected.

Nida, who was initially sentenced to 96 months in prison on July 8, 2014, for conspiracy to commit bank fraud, has had his sentence reduced to 84 months in the ruling from United States District Judge Charles A. Pannell, Jr.

After the reduction, Nida has just over a year left on his sentence and will be released in August 2020.

This is certainly good news for Apollo, but so far, his ex-wife Phaedra hasn’t reacted.

Apollo’s new bae, Sherien, will undoubtedly be glad to welcome her fiancé home sooner than she’d expected.

Her last public post about her prison bae was on Valentine’s Day when she posted this:

If Apollo is really lucky, maybe he can get Kim Kardashian to whisper a little somethin’, somethin’ in President Trump’s ear and get him out in time for this Christmas.
