Exclusive: Phaedra Parks vs Angela Stanton UPDATE!

Posted on Jun 24 2014 - 5:32pm by Editor



Things are heating up in the legal battle between “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Phaedra Parks and Angela Stanton, author of the book, “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil.” In the book, Angela candidly exposes the scams Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida were doing years ago involving check and auto theft  fraud. Angela and Apollo took the fall for those crimes and served time in prison while Phaedra got off scott-free.

On June 19, Ms. Stanton’s attorney, James Radford, fired off a letter to Phaedra Parks, notifying her (again) that her defamation lawsuit against Angela Stanton, was “wholly without merit.” Which essentially means, Phaedra’s lawsuit against Stanton was weak, frivolous and lacked merit. The letter also states, Angela’s attorneys believe, Phaedra filed the lawsuit with malicious intent to hinder the sales of her book, Lies of a Real Housewife, causing her:

1) “significant” loss of income of her intellectual property (her book)

2) high legal fees

3) emotional distress

This reveals that Angela’s attorneys are going for Phaedra’s jugular in damages.

[READ]  Angela Stanton Interview — The Secret Services want to Speak to Angela Stanton About Phaedra Parks?

The list of evidence proving Stanton’s claims are profound. Depositions from ex-boyfriends of Angela Stanton corroborate evidence backing up Angela’s claim that Phaedra was actually involved with (actually the one in charge of) the fraudulent check and auto theft schemes for which Angela was arrested.

Another very telling action on the part of Phaedra Parks and her attorney is their repeated refusal to have Phaedra deposed and/or offer evidence to prove Angela’s claims (in her book) are false. Angela’s attorney were force to file a “motion for summary judgment” against Phaedra, (asking the judge to rule in Angela’s favor prior to the case going to trial).

[READ] UPDATE: Angela Stanton vs. Phaedra Parks — Motion for Summary Judgment Against Defamation

Phaedra FINALLY agreed to give some form of a statement. Only after Stanton’s lawyer called Phaedra out for dodging her own deposition (to provide evidence that Stanton defamed her), then Parks provided the following vague statement:

“I have never been arrested for a crime or charged with any crime. I have never been questioned by any law enforcement agency about any possible involvement in a crime. I have never been involved in any criminal schemes with Defendant Stanton or anyone else. I have never committed any crime other than routine traffic violations.”

The letter below states, this is a formal notice pursuant to O.C.G.A 51-7-84.  Stanton’s attorney is requesting Parks dismiss her defamation lawsuit (against Angela Stanton) or Stanton’s legal counsel will pursue claims of abusive litigation.

    Oh, I like Angela Stanton’s attorney. This is a “You can run but you can’t hide” letter. Now what are you going to do, Phaedra?

    • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 7:09 pm -

      Angela’s attorney is bad ass and diligent. That’s where Angela has an advantage over Phaedra *diligent attorney* And I suspect his fees are high because he’s won many civil suits resulting in high dollar settlements. Phaedra should have left Angela alone but Phaedra thought she could drag this case out until Angela went bankrupt in legal fees. I’m sure her attorneys have not accepted any $$ until after the case.

    • Marsbars09 June 24, 2014 at 7:21 pm -

      Perfect description! That’s exactly what that letter is!

      • WestCoastFeed June 24, 2014 at 7:31 pm -

        Hi, Mars. You gotta admire that attorney. He is relentless.

        • Marsbars09 June 24, 2014 at 7:33 pm -

          I sure do! It’s about time somebody knocks that pompous b*tch off her pedestal.

  3. twifan2 June 24, 2014 at 6:18 pm -

    Oh WoW! Going to get juicier now!
    I’m wondering if Phaedra will drop her suit now?! :/

    • WestCoastFeed June 24, 2014 at 6:22 pm -

      She’d better have some real ammunition to use against Angela and she’d better put it out in a deposition or else pull the suit. What other choice does she have now? It certainly looks like Angela’s attorney is willing to wait as long as it takes.

      • twifan2 June 24, 2014 at 6:25 pm -

        Phaedra doesn’t have that much time or $$$ now.
        No choice at all. 🙂

    This is nothing new, I said from day one, he was a thief and Fhedra was the attorney, to keep things straight UTR. She is the epitome of preachers children, wild, whorish, smart, BiSexual, and definitely no southern belle.. But I give that shaddy bish, she doesn’t let nothing stand in her way. Ugh the worst part is people are showing up for her book signing, maybe also to get a looks in person of the damn fool they see on TV.
    That pickle scene was so funny, his ass is fresh out of jail, with a big pickle in his mouth.
    Dummies he look like he was real comfortable with that pickle, no man I know would want that seen on TV. Unless you’re a comedian. JMTC

    Seems like a lawsuit from Phaedra would only make the book sell more just from the CONTROVERSY around it…

  6. Marsbars09 June 24, 2014 at 7:17 pm -

    Wow, I guess the chips are falling heavily on Fake. I commend Angela and her attorney for aggressively fighting for what’s right. Fake thought just because she was a “high powered” attorney (ahem) and had a whole bunch of money and prestige she thought she could silence Angela, a “criminal”. It seems as if the evidence stacked against Fake is solid enough that Angela and her attorney are persevering on their claim.
    I still predict Fake will be charged with something before the end of the year. I don’t care what she said in her BS statement.

    • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 7:29 pm -

      Hey Marsie! The chickens are finally coming home to roost. As my granny used to always say “when you dig graves for ours be prepared to fall into them” <—this is so true.

      • Marsbars09 June 24, 2014 at 7:59 pm -

        The saying I’ve heard is “if you dig a grave for someone you’re really digging it for yourself”.

        • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 8:46 pm -

          Same difference 🙂

      • SpringBreeze14 June 24, 2014 at 10:36 pm -

        Your grandmother was right Seuss! Her busted arse won’t be able to sit back and say “fix it Jesus” when those handcoughs get a hold of her!

        • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 11:06 pm -

          I know….can you imagine Ms. Southern Belle turned up in L’Orange. Ahahahaha!

    • SpringBreeze14 June 24, 2014 at 10:35 pm -

      Goodness I hope so! After her little so called epic read that all the hoodrats of America praised her for, she deserves anything coming to her!

    From watching Kandi’s trainwreck wedding special and Fake bringing those nasty strippers to her bachelorette party, I can see how Kandi and Fake are good friends. They’re both lowdown, unhanded, passive agressive and sneaky. At first I wondered how Kandi could befriend a shady character as Fake. Now I completely understand.

    • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 7:30 pm -

      OMG!!! I didn’t want to sound mean but I could only imagine the funk level at a premium in that room. They looked so FUNKY!!!!

      • Marsbars09 June 24, 2014 at 7:32 pm -

        LOL! It did look stinky and claustrophobic in that room, didn’t it? I don’t see how those women were able to breathe properly. Peeyou! (holding my nose). LOL!

        • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 7:54 pm -

          Ewwwwww……you should see my face right now ROFLMAO!!!!!

    Angela shouldn’t be worried. Didn’t Phaedra also sign on to act as her own attorney along with her attorney? That’s a bad move because hasn’t Phaedra been losing all her cases lately? I mean, she did get outsmarted by an ex NFL player…

    • Dr Seuss June 24, 2014 at 8:45 pm -

      Hey SCD….how are ya? Haven’t seen you in awhile.

      Phaedra’s “legal team” didn’t drop her, she let them go because she couldn’t afford it. That’s what happens when a pompous attorney files a frivolous lawsuit in hopes the defendant caves and gives up. But Phaedra f*cked with the wrong one this time because Angela has a dream team of attorneys and they have their foot on on Phaedra’s neck!

      • SDC June 25, 2014 at 10:10 am -

        Ooh I can’t wait for her day in court. I hope the feds are looking at her closely the way they were with Teresa. I can’t stand Phaedra. I never bought into that “Southern Belle” facade. Plus, some of the things she’s said about and to Kenya are downright cruel and mean spirited. I know Kenya causes a lot of problems on the show but you don’t make fun of somebody’s infertility issues when they’re trying to get pregnant.

        • Summer June 25, 2014 at 7:02 pm -

          Hi i read somewhere that the feds are closely looking at her every move.

          Like yourself i never bought in2 that southern act crap.

          Regarding Kenya yes she down right mean to her who says things like that bout another women’s fertility or infertility i wouldn’t say it to my worst enemy that’s just extremely cruel & painful. When she hits she hits below the belt she’s real a dirty player

          • SDC June 25, 2014 at 7:26 pm -

            I would love to see her southern belle facade break down completely next season and is exposed for the criminal that she is. I’d also love for Nene to be exposed for the elitist, snobby bitch that she’s become and I just want Porsha to go get a proper education.

      • BCP2014 June 25, 2014 at 9:01 pm -

        Phaedra could easily afford a legal team, they did drop her because they felt as if they couldn’t win her case if she has enough money to be living in Buckhead which is Atlanta’s most expensive neighborhood then she can certainly afford her own dream team of lawyers.

        • Dr Seuss June 25, 2014 at 9:25 pm -

          So basically her legal team dropped the case because Phaedra appears to guilty.

          You’re right about the money part and living in Buckhead….I forgot Apollo was stealing retirement checks to keep them wealthy.

          • BCP2014 June 26, 2014 at 6:48 pm -

            In their eyes she must be guilty of something, and about the money thing Phaedra’s net worth alone is 2 million dollars, she makes 600K from Bravo and her annual salary from her law firm is about 400k a year (according to public records) I doubt she would be dumb enough to take any dirty money from Apollo when she makes her own.

    • BCP2014 June 25, 2014 at 8:57 pm -

      She did NOT get outsmarted by Bob Whitfield, I re-watched season 4 of RHOA and from what I saw Phaedra asked Sheree over and over again to file her papers before Bob did in order for her to prevent him from pulling a fast 1 but Sheree did not file nor retain Phaedra as her lawyer until the day of court, Bob and Phaedra are friends and she fully knows he is familiar with the law so when people say he outsmarted her that is simply not the case, he simply beat Sheree to the punch because she kept on putting it off until the last minute and then tried to say it was Phaedra’s fault. Now on to Angela, I feel like Angela is a scorned lover of Phaedra’s because if she had all of this evidence against Phaedra why in the hell did she not use it to put her in jail all those years ago? Phaedra wasn’t married nor did she have kids during the time so Angela should have rolled on Phaedra in order to get a reduced sentence or even granted immunity based off of the evidence she has/had on Phaedra. I would like to hear Gayla St. Juliens side of the story seeing how she was just sentenced in this most recent crime involving Apollo because in her statement she doesn’t name Phaedra as the mastermind like Angela is claiming and I would be more willing to hear what she has to say over Angela who is looking for a quick buck.

      • Kd December 6, 2014 at 5:53 am -

        What Angela saying Id the truth and if you don’t believe it you stupid she was the head she played the back field with the Mone she down with it Angela was more active and the Feds caught her she thought ole girl was gone keep it real she told Angela she was gone make sure she straight if she don’t snitch soon as she they took her in Phaedra dip clean get away and cut ol all of us off except Apollo it’s true why make up shit on her she was in the streets

  9. SpringBreeze14 June 24, 2014 at 10:30 pm -

    I can’t wait til that busted hoe finally goes down for good! There is nothing to admire about this woman. She’s a disgrace to her family, Atlanta, and women period. I’ve always believed Angela. People need to wake up. Phaedra is not a good person. Even Jessica Voker admitted that Phaedra likes to destroy people, which is what she tried to do to Angela, Jessica, Kenya, and probably many others. When Phaedra goes down all of team twirl is going to celebrate. Lol!

    • Marsbars09 June 24, 2014 at 11:43 pm -

      Hi SB! ITA! Only ratchet folk like Fake. Genuine, upstanding, wealthy women see right through Fake, that’s why she will never be accepted by the Atlanta elite.

      • Dr Seuss June 25, 2014 at 12:03 am -

        And that’s a fact Jack!

    ooooh good tea indeed! Shady Fakedra is hiding big time. MFSD will be granted and on with the real trial…..Angela get yo money…

  12. Summer June 25, 2014 at 6:53 pm -

    Phaedra is as guilty as her ass is fat.
    Hope this time she doesn’t get away with it & dumb Apollo takes all the wrap AGAIN

    The only victims in this case are the kids.

    Phaedra has always been shady time to pay the price this time southern bele

  13. Anne McClinton November 10, 2014 at 8:13 pm -

    Isn’t the Angela person a convict? and how is that Apollo got 8 years and Joe from Jersey got 3 yrs Hell didnt he have 35 counts against him?

  14. Anne McClinton November 10, 2014 at 9:16 pm -

    Here is part of an article I read: I know many people want to believe Phaedra was involved in Apollo’sscheme, but let’s look at the realities: Phaedra is smart and successful, but she is not smart and successful enough to evade the Feds or pay off enough criminals and agents to avoid detection. The Feds investigate DEEP. They will get you because they want their money (look at Teresa!).This s why i believe Phaedra was not involved the Feds are not about to let anyone get away.

    • lioness November 11, 2014 at 6:16 pm -

      Just because they did not take her down with Apollo does not mean that the investigation is closed (unless some sort of deal was worked out and Apollo took the fall for him and his wife–something about his statement “I didn’t bring no grief to you” stuck out in my mind that he was holding something back that they both understood).

    • Danceroflife March 15, 2015 at 8:52 pm -

      Phaedra isn’t as smart as you or she thinks. Afterall she DID marry Apollo. LOL!
