Brandon DeShazer and Apollo Nida

*A day or so ago “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Brandon DeShazer, Kenya Moore‘s assistant, caught a beatdown from Phaedra Parks‘ husband Apollo Nida. Apparently there’s lingering beef between the two camps over a workout video.

According to witnesses, Apollo got upset and “violently attacked” Brandon at a party that was being filmed for the upcoming season. So yes, it was conveniently all caught on tape, reports TMZ.

The witnesses say Apollo — who once served 5 years in prison for racketeering — had to be restrained by 7 male crew members before finally retreating.

We’re told Apollo was pissed because Brandon and Kenya had allegedly agreed to produce a workout video starring Phaedra, but instead produced their own, cutting Phaedra out.  We’re told Apollo felt slighted, and blamed Brandon for stabbing Phaedra in the back.

Apollo has a different story. He told TMZ that there was a fight on the set and he tried to break it up, but got attacked by Brandon. He says at that point he defended himself and everything got out of control.
