Apollo Nida Breaks His Silence On Angela Stanton’s Accusations

Posted on May 18 2014 - 3:50pm by Editor



Apollo Nida, star of  The Real Housewives of Atlanta and convicted felon did a recent interview with Sister2Sister Magazine. Apollo opened up about the allegations Angela Stanton has made against his wife, Phaedra Parks

Angela Stanton’s book, “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil,” contains scathing allegations naming Phaedra Parks as the mastermind behind an auto insurance crime ring involving Apollo.

Phaedra brought legal action against Stanton for the claims in her book and on February 24,2014, Angela Stanton’s attorney filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in favor of Angela Stanton.

Stanton’s attorneys are seeking all charges against Ms. Stanton be dismissed per Angela’s deposition and all the evidence on record supporting her case as truthful. This includes all the allegations stated in Stanton’s book, “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil,” revealing Phaedra Parks involvement in Apollo Nida’s insurance fraud and car theft ring (Apollo’s first conviction not the new charges). 

The revelations Apollo makes in the interview, contradicts depositions given by Angela Stanton and two of her children’s fathers, who are both currently incarcerated.  As most know, Apollo suffers from foot in mouth disease and throughout the interview he contradicts himself and does little to dispel Angela Stanton’s claims against Phaedra. As I’ve stated before, Apollo is dumb as a box of rocks and should not be allowed to do unsupervised interviews.

Read the entire interview below:

Jamie: So what is this Angela Stanton thing?
Apollo: Oh, man. I read something about her today. First of all, my wife has never, ever committed any type of crime.

Jamie: Is she saying that she has, though?
Apollo: Angela will say whatever she wants to say.

Jamie: How do you know Angela?
Apollo: I know her from the past. This is exactly how it happened. I’ve had dispositions on this throughout Phaedra’s lawsuit. I’ve spoken to numerous attorneys because I hold the key.

Jamie: Why is she saying these things?
Apollo: Okay. Angela was dealing with a dude named Drama. I don’t know if y’all read her book. Some of the stuff is facts; a lot isn’t.

Jamie: Is that DJ Drama?
Apollo: No, not DJ Drama. No, no, no. This is a kid who used to rap. Phaedra was basically his mentor or whatever, got him from one contract to another. But anyway, I meet Drama. He was still in the streets. Phaedra was trying to get him on the right path. I was in the streets. And at this point I was dealing with the cars and everything. I met Angela through Drama, not through Phaedra.
She’s never been indicted with me; she’s never been indicted with Phaedra; she’s never been indicted for racketeering. At the end of the day, how are you claiming that you were indicted on a federal racketeering charge when that’s a lie? You’re saying that you dealt with Phaedra on checks the 2nd and 3rd; that’s a lie.
So she felt like “Oh, I don’t have any money, so let me call Phaedra,” because I knew her through Drama. “Let me call her to represent me.”

Jamie: So when was this?
Apollo: This has to be, like, between ’04 and ’06? Somewhere in there. It’s all in the indictment; you can read it. But working with Phaedra, working with me? Never, ever, ever. So the whole problem with Angela Stanton is this: Angela didn’t have any money. She tried to reach out to a lawyer; she thought that she could reach out to Phaedra.

From what I see on the documentation, every time you have a lawyer, they have to make a notice of entry. So I don’t see where Phaedra’s ever represented this girl.

But anyway, she had to do time. She does time. She comes home. I’m on the show. Phaedra’s on the show.

Jamie: And Angela sees this.
Apollo: Angela’s pissed. “You m*therf*ckers are stars now. What?” At that point, she just went ballistic. She’s calling up there. So this is a situation where me and Phaedra always talk. I said to her—back then, when this was happening, I want to say 2010—”Let’s sit down and talk to her.” “No.” Phaedra, that’s how she is and that’s probably part of where we are to this point in a lot of things because sometimes in life, if you have a mate, you have to compromise. My thing was, hey, I like to attack confrontation head-on.

Jamie: You like to get it out in the open.
Apollo: Yeah, and let’s air it out. So that never happened. Most of the time, people want something. “What, do you want? Help with your book? When did you write this one, this Lies of a Housewife? Okay, let’s not do that because that’s some bullc#@p.”

Jamie: She wrote a book about “Housewives” or something?
Apollo: Right. So she puts this book out and says all this crazy stuff and just tries to, I guess, make herself famous in her own way. S#@t, I’ve been waiting on my opportunity to go to court and face that lady because I know the truth. I was the person who was there, so it’s nothing you can say that goes around me.

Jamie: So you’re not afraid of this. Everybody’s saying, like, “Apollo and Phaedra are going to go to jail and this girl is telling all these things.”
Apollo: No, because it’s two different situations. All of that situation has nothing to do with what’s in front for me. What’s going on with me right now is a criminal complaint that I have to answer to. In due time, I’ll have my day in court.

    Dispositions? Does he mean depositions? And can we expect him to tell the truth under oath?

    • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 4:44 pm -

      The truth according to him only we all know, that’s not the real truth.

    • Dr Seuss May 18, 2014 at 5:12 pm -

      LOL! yes…he’s a dang fool.

    • RonnieIsBack May 19, 2014 at 8:03 am -

      yes..the idiot…

  2. SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 4:44 pm -

    He’s one person Fhedra can’t control at all. His mouth is like running water, it’s never stops.
    He really thinks he’s important, he’s just another criminal, trying to make money, by stealing from others. He needs to just STFU, HE IGNORGANT N NARCASSTIC, he thinks he the shit. Fhedra must be so embarrass, she can’t see straight. He totally disrespect her to the highest. Fhedra don’t control me, someone needs to shut your mouth up.

  3. Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 5:43 pm -

    It sounds like Apollo read Angela Stanton’s book if he states “some of it is fact”.

  4. LoLo May 18, 2014 at 6:12 pm -

    Every time he opens his mouth I cringe. It’s like the lights are not on upstairs.

  5. TaudryHepburn May 18, 2014 at 6:43 pm -

    This looks ok to me – I don’t see where Apollo contradicts himself – Can anyone explain what I’m missing?

  6. Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 6:47 pm -

    Has any one heard from Fake?

    • WestCoastFeed May 18, 2014 at 7:04 pm -

      She’s peddling “Fix It. Jesus” t shirts.

      • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 9:26 pm -

        Apollos already answered her prayers—he’s going back to the big house, as we say in the south. They will welcome him with open arms and a good butt inspection.. Then they will know how much he used ir. I’m sarcastic because he don’t care, what he does and say. I don’t kind snarking on him and his church mouse attorney.

        • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:28 pm -

          Samra, you’re one of the most snarky eat posters I’ve ever come across. You don’t hold back for nothing. LOL!

          • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 9:35 pm -

            Why should I, this is a blog to talk crap, on these silky women. I would take off running from the cameras, although I can’t run anymore. But you best believe, if my life or my twins or grandkids life depends on me running, I would run until I fell out. I came from a home of nothing is too hard to achieve. Give everything your best, if you fail, atleast you know you used every means necessary. JS

    • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 7:51 pm -

      she book signing—she was in Baton Rouge and New Orleans. LA
      I don’t know what damn fool that’s buying her book SMH

      • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 8:58 pm -

        She’s taking her charade on the road I see. Fake does have fans.

        • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 9:22 pm -

          She really does, females in bad relationship, relates to her. SMDH
          I won’t buy anything, from any HWS show—I’m not putting a penny in their bank accounts. I will snark on all them, except Nene, I thrust with her and her attitude. It stink, like day old kaka. JMO

          • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:24 pm -

            Are you stating you relate to Nene and her stank attitude?

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:28 pm -

            No Marsie I think Samra is saying that the force is strong with this one! LOL! Meaning Neigh-Neigh & Samra has more of a dislike for Ne Ne than the others.

          • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:29 pm -

            Oh OK. Thanks for clarifying.

          • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 9:31 pm -

            Hell no I been disgusted with her attitude, like she’s some movie..
            Nene splits more verb than a dummy, trying to be proper. The old Nene is gone. She all about labels, that’s one of the reasons I liked her, she made what she had due, nothing about labels. She just full of shit to me and that I mean. SMDH
            All the people she stepped over to the top, will be the same people on her way down. She’s just too full of herself.

          • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:39 pm -

            Thanks for clarifying, Samra.
            I agree that Nene is a legend in her own mind. She will never be the “old” Nene again.
            What’s probably going to end up happening is when this reality thing said and done for Nene, she’s going to be broke living in Section 8 with delusions of grandeur because she has no other means of supporting herself.

          • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 10:08 pm -

            Girl section 8 and the projects are almost the same. But damn that’s a low blow—section 8—- I can just see her living there, with all her designer clothes and shoes. I know for sure, some people from the projects, you would never know, that’s where they grew up. Simply saying, you are not a product of your environment, you can’t control what your parents can afford. What you can control, is what you do in school and life. Everyone can’t afford the same things, make due with what you have and do your best to do better. Every parent wants the BEST for their children, money and things, don’t mean crap, compared to a hardworking parent that give the GEST they can JS

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:48 pm -

            Ha-ha Samra you’ve got me rollin’ on the floor! Seems Ne Ne & some of the rest of the Bravo crew have forgotten the higher you climb the more people can see your azz!

            Hope you are feeling & breathing much better Hon! Have a good week.

          • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 10:00 pm -

            You know it all the people you ran over, will be the first on her way down, the sliding board.

          • SAMRA1116 May 18, 2014 at 10:17 pm -

            Thank You Tiger, no more breathing machine, I’m enjoying the sun, and the beautiful weather. Just missing my Big Sexy, it’s nice he’s away working, I get to miss him and want him home. LMAO
            I know I’m off the rockets, but I’m honest to a fault. My family knows, don’t ask me anything, you will get the truth, you might not like it, but you asked and I answered. I’m the youngest out the family, so I had to stand up or be run over. My mother skyways said, if you want the truth, just ask Sam???

  7. Kanaya Ademola May 18, 2014 at 6:56 pm -

    Did he mean depositions not dispositions?

  8. Kanaya Ademola May 18, 2014 at 6:59 pm -

    Funny how Fakedra calls Kenya a slut and a whore but who was whoring around Atlanta and giving heads to men? It wasn’t Kenya. Sorry but Fakedra has no class and Kenya has plenty! Take a look at both and listen to both then decide! What decent, educated woman picks up a prisoner and makes him into a husband? She’s supposedly a lawyer! Who does that and then tries to pretend she’s a First Lady..please…Fakedra is ghetto as heck (as in ghetto in attitude not location)

    • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 8:58 pm -

      Great commentary, Kanaya. I too have wondered how a professional, educated woman of Fake’s calendar thought a felon was the creme de la creme of men.

    • RonnieIsBack May 19, 2014 at 8:02 am -

      Agreed! Fakedra is just super insecure and it doesn’t help her own man is lusting after Kenya….

  9. Missy May 18, 2014 at 7:34 pm -

    Smdh….you got one man that his wife treats him as the luggage boy ( Gregg), and the other that has 5 ” baby mammas” ( Peters words) and one that’s not even married yet………giving this immature fool marriage advise!!!!!!!! Comical! As if they’re the best example of what a good marriage is!
    And btw…..I DO NOT find Apollo ” fine” at all, I never have…….and what kind of name is that anyway???

    • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 8:57 pm -

      Hi Missy! I agree with your comment, however, Apollo does have a might fine body! 🙂

      • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:24 pm -

        Yeah have to agree Mars. The bod is hawt! I sincerely have little to no resistance to washboard abs! Onion butt too, (like the Cumberbunny! Ooohhh-whee! Makes you wanna cry when you look at it! LOL!)

        • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:26 pm -

          LOL! You’re too much, Tiger!
          I don’t know too much about Cumberpatch (?), but he’s apparently smoking hot (?).

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:31 pm -

            Oh Mars he is soooo hot! He should have a caution label! British! The accent? OMG I just melt!

          • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:34 pm -

            Whoa baby! That picture is too hot to show on this website! Did you share that with NAWS?! LOL! I don’t think she could handle that! LOL!

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:44 pm -

            Yes! OMG Mars isn’t he just juicy! Yummyness!!!! *Le Sigh!*
            Yes I did share with Naws & Twi & we all fell out!
            Dude is SMOKIN’!!! Ooohhh!

          • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:47 pm -

            LMAO! You’re too much Tiger!

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:51 pm -

            The accent alone would give me heart palpitations! I would squeal with delight & faint dead on the floor like a 14 year old if he ever said my name!

          • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:55 pm -

            OK Tiger, you’re getting too excited now. Take a deep breath and calm down. *Tiger takes a couple of deep breaths and her blood pressure returns to normal*

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 10:02 pm -

            Oh not even a sedative could help Marsie! He’s just dreamy!
            I’m so silly! Hee-hee!

          • RonnieIsBack May 19, 2014 at 8:01 am -

          Hi honey….checking in on you to say “hi”….hope you’re having a good day my love.

          • Tigerlily May 21, 2014 at 7:55 pm -

            Hi Doc! I’m okay. Was just heading over to play for a while. See ya there.

  10. Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 8:42 pm -

    There is one thing I will never understand. How can these knuckleheads think they’re not gonna get caught? Maybe it’s because I don’t think like a criminal & I have a strong belief in the ‘Golden Rule’. I wouldn’t want anyone to steal something I worked hard for, so I wouldn’t turn around & do it to someone else, but I just don’t think you can continue to screw people over, time after time & not have it come back to you in some way. Idk. *Shrugs.*
    Another fool who decided money, ego & so called prestige was worth more than his children & his family. His choice. His decision. More children who will grow up without a father/parent in their lives because their Dad/Mom made horrible choices. I will never see the value in that. Where are you coming out ahead in that game? How can you deceive yourself into thinking you are playing a ‘Winning’ game? You lose & worse your children lose a whole lot more for they paid a much higher price. I pray Phaedra can handle being a ‘Single’ Mom. Her sweet babies are gonna need a strong presence in their lives to overcome all the bad choices their Dad has made. I wish their son’d only the best.

    Hope you all had a wonderful Sunday & I hope everyone has a great week!

    • WestCoastFeed May 18, 2014 at 8:48 pm -

      Hi, tiger lily. I hope your Sunday is splendid, too.

      • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:10 pm -

        Thanks WCF. Hope you are feeling better too & your breathing is much improved!

        • WestCoastFeed May 18, 2014 at 9:11 pm -

          Yes, thanks, the doc gave me an inhalant to try and it is helping.

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:22 pm -

            Good, so glad to hear it & hope you are back to feeling 100% soon. ;D

    • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 8:56 pm -

      Well said, Tiger.
      I’m watching a rerun of part 3 of the reunion, and they’re airing the scene where Apollo is cursing out Fake after the Pillow Talk fight. I was thinking this is/was their real relationship off camera. Ever since Apollo was released from prison in 2009 I don’t think he ever had the intention of going “straight”. SMH.

      • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:20 pm -

        Thanks Marsie.I always have a hard time understanding parents who choose $$$ & ego over their kids. Yeah keeping up with the ‘Jonses’ is way more important than being an honest person! WTH??? Of course it sucks you can’t give your children everything they want, but in the end what are you teaching them & why & how is that acceptable in your mind?

        I agree Mars, I too think that was a true peek at what life is like behind the camera lens for the Nida’s. More often than not. & I agree Apollo had no intention of not returning to his past behaviors based on the character he has portrayed on the show. $8000 on strippers in one shot! (Sorry couldn’t resist the pun, LOL!) Who does that except huge $$$ making stars, celebs Saudi Princes? This dude is no millionaire. Chit he’s not even a hundred-aire FFS!

        • Marsbars09 May 18, 2014 at 9:23 pm -

          LOL! Well said once again Tiger!

          • Tigerlily May 18, 2014 at 9:26 pm -

            TY! 🙂 Ditto. I was agreeing with you! Hee-hee!

    • LoLo May 19, 2014 at 10:09 am -

      I agree & I don’t understand why anyone, criminal or not would go on these shows if they have anything to hide. Don’t they know everything they’ve ever done will come out or what they do now (cheating, lying etc) will be exposed. They have zero common sense.

      • Missy May 19, 2014 at 3:51 pm -

        Narcissists seldom due….street smart but common sense stupid!

  11. realitygur4eva May 18, 2014 at 10:04 pm -

    Man it’s all just one big mess! Who knows what the hell the truth is!! It’s all by design. But I do think phaedra got with Apollo after coming out of prison to keep some control over him (runnin his mouth) which isn’t working!! I do think she has had some involvement in all of this Apollo is the fall guy for her now and before!!

    • RonnieIsBack May 19, 2014 at 8:00 am -

      Ding ding ding we have a winnah!!!!!!!

  12. Harleygirl0685 May 19, 2014 at 12:02 am -

    Foot in mouth disease! That’s hysterical! I can’t wait to use that line one day

  13. RonnieIsBack May 19, 2014 at 8:00 am -

    He is one ignorant muthaphucka..he should just shut up! His ego and his mouth is just digging him deeper and deeper…dumbazz..

    • LoLo May 19, 2014 at 10:07 am -

      He rambles when he talks with a smirk the entire time. Nothing he says ever makes sense, I’m always waiting for him to tie the story in & it never does. Not just about this case but in general.

      • Birdie11 May 19, 2014 at 11:58 am -

        Hi LoLo!! Nice to see your cute avi!!

        • LoLo May 19, 2014 at 12:02 pm -

          Thanks, same to you. Growing up I was a huge Archie’s fan.

          • Birdie11 May 19, 2014 at 12:03 pm -

            LOVED those comic books!!

          • LoLo May 19, 2014 at 12:14 pm -

            Me too, I had them all along with many collectables that I lost over the years. Too bad as Archie’s being killed off & the original merchandise is now valuable. If only I knew then…

          • Birdie11 May 19, 2014 at 12:19 pm -

            Why are they doing that?? Is he being killed as a teenager, or has he aged? I’m out of touch and don’t get it!

          • LoLo May 19, 2014 at 12:22 pm -

            Well they never seemed to age so I’m guessing he would still be a teenager. I read that the series was ending so they decided to kill him off. He would die saving someone else’s life if I remember correctly. I don’t read them & haven’t in decades. I did run across a latenight cartoon that is from the same makers with very similar characters called High School High on Fox on Saturday nights. It’s strange how similar it is to the Archies.

          • Missy May 19, 2014 at 3:48 pm -

            …..oh honey honey….you are my candy girlllll….and I want you wanting me…..I jus’ can’t believe the loveliness of loving you I jus’ can’t believe it’s true

          • Birdie11 May 19, 2014 at 5:58 pm -

            Yes! I still love it and listen to it anytime I happen to hit it on the oldies station! LOVE!!

  14. Birdie11 May 19, 2014 at 11:57 am -

    Apollo needs to stick with his come hither photo expressions and stop the interviews. He’s not doing himself any favors by reiterating over and over what a dum dum he is.

  15. WaWaWaWHAT! May 19, 2014 at 12:28 pm -

    Remember when Apollo & Phaedra joined the cast?!

    I remember thinking DAMN she roped in a fine gentleman…I was a little jelly of Phaedra….NOW fast forward to present day…I’m like, this dumbass can’t even put a single thought together…not only does he talk in circles [& make my head hurt], have a criminal past…this guy is the TRUE meaning of an idiot!!!

    Guess when it comes to LEGAL talk Apollo needs Hooked on Phonics…but if he’s stealing & producing false business and scams, this guy is a genius!!

  16. barbara hudson May 19, 2014 at 12:50 pm -

    Apollo is so dumb why is he talking at ALL! Phadrea is a crimninal too!

  17. cait July 7, 2014 at 3:17 pm -

    His two cases were very intricate and finely planned so no way he masterminded either crimes ! No wonder she married him so he couldn’t rat her out for last time and this time ! Men can be such fools where women are concerned, eg. Juicy Joe !
