LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – Filming of the new RHOA Season 2014-15 began today with the Apollo Nida sentencing in a Georgia courtroom, LALATE can exclusively. RHOA cameras were not allowed in Apollo Nida’s courtroom as he was told he would be sent to prison for eight years. But LALATE can exclusively report that filming was in place leading into and after the sentencing. Moreover, LALATE can also exclusively report that RHOA cast members were so in-tune with today’s sentencing that RHOA’s cast knew of Apollo Nida’s fate from the courtroom at least thirty minutes before the news broke outside from broadcast TV.
LALATE can report that ATL filming for the new season of RHOA started today, the same day in which Apollo Nida was sentenced to eight years in prison. Of note, LALATE can also report that B-roll, or pickup footage, has been filmed in June as well outside of the ATL. Footage of NeNe Leakes was recorded in Las Vegas several weeks ago, a detail which RHOA’s executive producer Carlos King hinted in his Instagram feed at the time.
But today, BravoTV and TV news were not allowed to film inside a federal courtroom as Nida was sentenced. But LALATE can report that Bravo TV got footage before and after Apollo Nida’s sentencing. But who was in the courtroom, who was outside, and how soon did other RHOA cast members hear about the Apollo’s sentencing?
LALATE can exclusively that some of the RHOA cast member knew that Apollo Nida had gotten an eight year sentence from the judge roughly 15 to 30 minutes before the new reached broadcast TV. As tweeted live on LALATE today, national news had reporters in the courtroom. Those news reporters then had to exit the courtroom and relay the sentencing via text to their TV segment producers. LALATE can report that, between that period of time, some of the RHOA cast members had already heard or learned of the 8 year ruling from the judge.
