UPDATE: Phaedra Parks Ordered To Give A New Deposition in Lawsuit Against Angela Stanton

Posted on Oct 13 2014 - 7:01pm by Editor


On June 19th, Phaedra Parks sat for a 5-hour long grueling deposition in the “Phaedra Parks vs. Angela Stanton” civil lawsuit.

Phaedra Parks stars on Bravo’s hit reality show, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” and is married to newly convicted felon, Apollo Nida, who’s currently serving an 8-year prison sentence for identity fraud.

Just a quick background, Phaedra Parks is suing Angela Stanton on the grounds Stanton lied on her in her book, “Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil.” Stanton’s book exposes alleged scams Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida took part in involving check and theft  fraud a few years ago. Stanton took the fall for those crimes and served time in prison while Phaedra got off scott-free. Phaedra Parks adamantly denies those claims and in 2012 filed a defamation lawsuit against her former friend.

On June 19th, Phaedra Parks sat for a 5-hour long grueling deposition in the “Phaedra Parks vs. Angela Stanton” civil lawsuit. After months of dodging requests from Angela Stanton’s legal counsel to give information in a defamation lawsuit Parks she was ordered by the court to be deposed.

As we previously reported, a source close to the case informed All About The Tea EXCLUSIVELY that Phaedra Parks used the opportunity to try to get away with obnoxious unprofessional behavior during the discovery. Phaedra refused to answer pertinent questions relating to the case and specifically regarding her convict husband, Apollo Nida. Primarily ones that involve her husband’s criminal activity. Most questions asked about Apollo were met with “I will not be answering that [as it pertains to Apollo].” In the deposition, Phaedra claims she does not know how Apollo and Angela knew each other and she was unaware of any criminal activity between the two. These are the same claims she said were false in Angela’s book. If Phaedra did not know of any of their crimes then how would she know the claims in Angela’s book are false?

Due to Parks uncooperative behavior to compel in the judicial process, Stanton’s attorney was forced to file another “Motion to Compel.” See a copy of the new motion below, signed off by a Gwinnett County Judge on October 10, 2014:

Angela Stanton's Motion To Compel

The order requires Parks to fully participate in the discovery process. She’ll have to resubmit to another deposition and fully answer ALL questions that lead to discoverable evidence regarding her relationship with Apollo Nida. The court has ordered Parks be deposed within the next 10 days. The deadline is October 20.

There seems to be a web of deceit surrounding Parks initial deposition and the court is ordering she be truthful when she sits for her second deposition within the next 10 days. Stay tuned for further updates on this case.

    I’m so glad Angela’s attorneys are giving Fake a taste of her own medicine. They are like pit-bulls going after an alley cat! They won’t give up until Fake gives them the answers they need.

    Was having Apollo as your husband worth it?

      2 kids and that’s about all that was worth anything

    Yes, I am glad that they are not playing with this frog. Soon SOMEONE is going to get Phaedra and there’s nothing she can do about it. Right now she’s trying to play the “woe is me, my poor husband cheated and committed fraud and left me and our two boys.” She’s going on Ellen sometime this week. Why I don’t know. Phaedra, like Nene, thinks she is more interesting than she actually is. Only thing interesting about Faketra is her criminal dealings, her soon to be ex husband, and her boys.

    Did you guys hear about Kenya leaving a lot of fans hanging for 8 hours looking for an assistant? People flew from all over the country to be her assistant and she made them wait 8 hours. She took two hours to go shopping and grab some lunch and told everyone who didn’t have a resume to go home. It was a mess but then again those people were crazy for giving up so much of their time and energy to do that anyway. It was obviously for the show. I like housewives but I wouldn’t want to work for NONE of them broads.

    You’ve all heard the famous saying…”The truth shall set you free?” Not in this case it won’t….

    Love the pic of Phae above – which is probably how she looks now days. Guess no more over the top parties for Mr. President and his brother. (suck that pickle Phae)

      lmao, great comment.

    Phake, Phake, and more Phake! I can’t believe I was actually a fan on this woman at one point. Not any longer.

    Is she appearing on Ellen this week? Will Ellen ask her about this?

    • nan/4 October 14, 2014 at 10:57 am -

      Seriously? Phaedra rates an appearance on “Ellen??” She must be hard up for guests…..;-/

      Mornin’ West! Hope all is well, so far…..hehe 🙂

      • WestCoastFeed October 14, 2014 at 11:16 am -

        Morning, nan. Yes, she is scheduled tomorrow on Ellen along with Heidi Klum.

        • nan/4 October 14, 2014 at 11:31 am -

          I’m really surprised. I thought that Ellen has higher caliber guests on her show. It sounds more like E News or Wendy Williams worthy. Wow.

    Admittedly, I have not been following this too closely — if anyone can assist and answer for me, what are the potential repercussions for her here? What does this all mean for her? Thanks! Sorry if I’m being daft or obtuse, but I admit to being ignorant about this particular case!

    • WestCoastFeed October 14, 2014 at 1:10 pm -

      It’s a really long story, but for now, she just has been order to sit again to be deposed about her lawsuit against Angela Stanton. And she must comply within 10 days. I read on another site that the judge did restrict the deposition to a couple of specific areas of inquiry. The last deposition she gave, she refused to discuss Apollo at all. This time the judge says she must answer questions about his criminal activities.

      I hope that helps a little.

        You rock, West! Thank you so much.
        Phaedra must be quaking in her stilettos now. Sux to be her at this moment!
