Hot on the heels of Phaedra Parks announcing that she’s divorcing herself from providing Apollo Nida with spousal immunity, a judge is ordering Phaedra to discuss her husband’s crimes in an upcoming deposition!
Phaedra has been embroiled in a lawsuit against a woman named Angela Stanton who self-published a book titled Lies Of A Real Housewife which alleged that Phaedra was the ring-leader in the original car racket scheme that got Apollo (and Angela) sent to federal prison. This is the first time Apollo went to prison, mind you.
A portion of Angela’s book was published in Vibe Magazine, despite the magazine issuing a disclaimer that there were no facts to back it up. Phaedra sued Vibe, Angela’s publishing company, and Angela, settling out of court with Vibe and dropping the suit against the publishing company – but Phaedra’s suit against Angela rages on.
Now the Real Housewives Of Atlanta is required to give additional deposition because according to Angela’s attorneys Phaedra doesn’t want to reveal what she may or may not have known about Apollo’s illegal activities!
And then Apollo Nida got indicted for fraud and Phaedra refused to comply with her deposition in Angela's lawsuit case. Angela's attorney has issued a court order demanding that Phaedra sit for her deposition within 45-days says a judge.
Andy jumps right in and asks Kenya about the ladies saying that she "rushed" Christopher in the brawl at NeNe's pillow party. "First of all, you can't rush in six inch heels. I stood up very calmly and began to walk across the room. No one rushed anyone. "
Andy says, "NeNe said you were wearing a diapers, by the way". Kenya replied, "Well at least I could fit in a child's diaper and not an adult diaper like some of us."
Angela is speaking out about Apollo's arrest and shares that she's looking for a media outlet to share some more of her insight into the matter. She writes, "In 2012, I released my personal memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. In the book, I detailed the struggles I faced as a young woman drawn to the temptations of crime and the false glamour it affords. I alone am responsible for the mistakes I made as a young woman. Yet, I have felt a certain sense of anger toward the people who used me during that period of my life. Certain individuals found me at a time when I was vulnerable and searching for friendship, and used those traits to lure me into doing their bidding."
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is accused of involving ex-con Angela in the ring and then bailing on her 'friend' when she needed a good attorney. Anyway, they were due to head to court but things got delayed because after Angela's original attorney dumped her she hired a new one she found through a late-night TV commercial and filed a counter suit against Phaedra!
Angela is accusing Phaedra of defamation because Phaedra called her a liar. Angela currently provides no proof of Phaedra's alleged criminal involvement in her book, Lies of A Real Housewife, by the way.
According to Access Atlanta, the judge just granted Angela's motion for continuance, which means the proceedings will be delayed for five months. Angela's reason behind filing the continuance is to give her time to secure new counsel, with the court documents noting that her original attorney had been "representing Stanton on a pro bono basis, always with the understanding that she would secure other counsel."
Angela also provided an interview to Vibe in which she claimed Phaedra was a criminal mastermind behind an auto theft ring. Angela also alleges that her involvement with Phaedra's criminal organization led to not only her incarceration but Apollo's!
Phaedra's mother, Pastor Regina Bell also filed a defamation suit against Vibe for $6M and TMZ reported Regina settled for a pathetic $10! Um… yeah to the right – that won't even buy a lady lunch!
As you know, Phaedra, reality starlet, quotable wordsmith, lover of pickles, and attorney extraordinaire, did not take kindly to Vibe.com financially backing Angela Stanton’s tome of slander “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil,” and she recently filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the site’s parent company. Now it appears that her mother, Pastor Regina Bell, is following suit…literally!
