VIDEOS Angela Stanton interview about Phaedra Parks’ alleged criminal history parts 2 and 3
          

Angela Stanton claims Phaedra Parks was a criminal mastermind

Angela Stanton sent shock waves through Bravolebridom Thursday when Vibe released an interview video in which she detailed her history with The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks and how the high-powered Atlanta attorney had been the ringleader of a racketeering ring involving herself, Apolla Nida (Phaedra’s future husband), and Apollo’s brother Everett. The video was the first part of three and was promoting Angela’s new book, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth Shame and the Devil.

In the first part of the interview, Angela detailed Phaedra’s and her own role in the racketeering ring as well as an insurance fraud scam the group worked together on before that. Today Vibe has released the last two parts of the interview in which Angela talks about what happened after she, Apollo, and Everett were arrested – which essentially was that Phaedra promised to defend Angela but then abandoned her, telling the judge it was due to a “conflict of interest.”

Here are the two video clips. (My apologies for the auto start – Vibe has them set that way and I couldn’t figure out how to code them to not start automatically) I’ve provided a bullet point summary of the first clip, and a more in-depth summary of the final clip with most of it transcribed.

Angela Stanton’s Phaedra Parks Vibe interview Part 2 of 3:

SUMMARY:

• Angela’s mother died of a massive heart attack when she was in prison and Phaedra attended the funeral in Angela’s stead

• Two days after Angela’s mother’s funeral she received a card from Phaedra telling her “everything would be OK when I got home”

• Angela was released from state custody in September of 2005. She tried to contact Phaedra numerous times and could not get in touch with her.

• When Angela arrived at the parole office, federal officers were there to place her under arrest.

• Angela was taken to the federal courthouse and charged with 17 counts of conspiracy, auto theft, racketeering…

• Angela is placed on pretrial release and tries to contact Phaedra Parks again with no luck. She even goes by her office to no avail and says Phaedra was hiding from her.

• Angela does eventually get in contact with Phaedra, who says to Angela, “Don’t worry about it. I got you. I’m going to take care of you. Just remember what we talked about. Let them know that I’ll be representing you.

• On the day of Angela’s arraignment, Phaedra Parks doesn’t show up. When Judge Linda Evans contacts Phaedra she says she will not be representing Angela Stanton due to a conflict of interest. “Maybe she got scared,” Angela says. “Maybe she thought I would tell. Maybe she felt it was just getting too hot. I couldn’t understand why she had just totally and completely abandoned me.”

• In response to Phaedra bailing on her, Angela said, “In my mind I was cool with it. I was like, you know what? Nobody ever put a gun to my head, nobody made me do anything. I’m a grown woman. I accept all of my consequences for what I did.”

• Everett and his brother Apollo Nida (Phaedra’s eventual husband) got sentenced to prison and Angela was sentenced to three years of federal supervision.

Angela Stanton’s Phaedra Parks Vibe interview Part 3 of 3:

Angela Stanton was unable to find any work or receive government assistance because she was a convicted felon.

“When I saw the first episode of Housewives of Atlanta, I was shocked when I saw that she had married Apollo. Not only was I shocked when I found out that she married Apollo, I was extra shocked when I saw Everett featured on the show several times – when I found out that Everett worked as a paralegal at her law firm while he was still in the halfway house. It hurt me when I looked and I saw the episode when a young lady from Destiny’s Child came strolling in her office and was crying and saying, ‘I been in jail and I just want to get my life together,’ and Phaedra actually had the audacity to cry, and then touch her and tell her that she had a golden touch and she was going to help her get her life together.

“It hurt me when I watched the show and I saw Phaedra giving birth to her baby on the show, and I knew that I was handcuffed to a bed when I had my baby, and they took my baby from me 24 hours later.

It hurt me when I thought about Phaedra, who was somebody that was my friend, when I learned that she went and she stood over my mother’s body, and she knew that they were framing me. She Knew she had no intention to help me get out of the situation that she created. Somebody had to be the fall guy for the entire operation, and it just happened to be me.

So my book is not about vengeance, it’s about justice. It’s about telling my story. It’s about telling the story of a five-year-old girl that was sexually abused, who lived in and out on the streets, who ran into somebody that pretended to be her friend, that pretended to be a mentor.

“I just couldn’t understand why she would be so involved with destroying my life, but not interested at all in helping me build it up. And just to kind of sum it up, it’s kind of like a football game, if you say. The coach, he stands on the sidelines, and he calls all the plays. But the player is the one who actually takes the ball and runs down the field, and he’s the one that takes all the hits. Not only does he takes all the hits, he brings home the trophy.

“You can’t leave a player injured, laying in the middle of the field. The least you can do is send a paramedic saying, ‘Wrap him up, help him with his wounds, and send him on his way.’ If he’s out of the game and can’t play any more, then that’s how you handle that. But you just don’t leave him injured in the middle of the field.”

      Omg! Phaedra is shady and messed up to do that. I think she’s really funny and enjoyable to watch, but there was this icky vibe I got from her. She constantly lies a lot, and she does it in a very slick way! If she can take money from that man after court on the street when he was about to leave, and he doesn’t even write her a check, then I’m sure she has done a lot of shady crap! She’s a lawyer! She knows how to act, lie, and speak to others, but Phaedra just hides things better. No wonder why she married Apollo! If she married him, she wouldn’t have to testify because married couples don’t testify against each other. Plus, she said she met Apollo wayyy back, and trust! Phaedra hangs out with bad boys! Lawyers are usually caught up with troubled people, or convicted felons because they gettin’ money from them. They’ll represent anyone who has a good case.

    • mscatham

      I believe this story and I believe that Phaedra did that shady crap. I just dont see why this lady would sit here and lie about this situation, from the beginning to the end. If it were me, I wouldve written a book about the situation also. WOW…Miss Goody Two Shoes Phaedra, has a past….I already knew when she lied about the baby and how long she has been pregnant, she was not to be trusted!

    • na

    • Smiley

      I think some parts are true, and others are embellished for publicity. There’s no doubt they know each other, but I don’t know if I would trust or believe either one of them.

    • Betty Parkd

      Where can I buy a copy of the book. I don’t want an ebook, I want paperback copy. Thank you

    • MISS CELIE

      THIS STORY WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION. PHAEDRA’S PARENTS PROBABLY PROSPERED FROM THIS SCAM AS WELL. FAKE/FAY/FAY DIDN’T DO ANY TIME FOR HER CRIMES BUT APOLLO, HIS BROTHER, AND MS. STANTON DID.

      WHY DO THE EVIL & WICKED PROSPERETH IN THEIR OWN WAY & THE JUST SUFFER? BECAUSE THEIR REWARD IS IN THIS LIFE ONLY & IN THIS WORLD; THE REWARD OF THE JUST (WHO SUFFER LONG & ENDURE) IS ETERNAL LIFE. MONEY IS & WILL ALWAYS BE THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL.

      TO THINK THAT PHAEDRA IS STILL OVERPLAYING THE ROLE OF SOUTHERN BELLE/HOLY ROLLER. SHE FORGETS THAT GOD DON’T LIKE UGLY…AND IS NOT THAT FOND OF PRETTY EITHER (AS THE OLD FOLKS WOULD SAY).

      PHAEDRA YOU BETTER KEEP YOUR HEAD TO THE SKY HUNTY & WATCH FOR ONE OF GOD’S LIGHTENING BOLTS; AND ALSO WATCH FOR THE UNITED STATES TREASURY (AKA THE IRS) & THE FBI. “WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU & YOUR BIG-ASS DONKEY BOOTAY?”

      BRAVO REALITY SHOW, FITNESS VIDEOS & STUN GUNS MY ASS. THIS CHICK WAS INVOLVED IN SOME MAJOR SHIT. INTERSTATE CAR THEFT RING, RICO & RACKETEERING, PLUS GOD ONLY KNOWS WHAT ELSE. NO WONDER HER CLIENT LIST READS LIKE THUG CENTRAL.

      IT’S NOT A REALITY SHOW, WHEN IT’S STAGED FOR EFFECT, WITH THE FULL VIEW OF CAMERAS ROLLING TAPE. IT’S JUST THEATER, SMOKING GUNS & MIRRORS. THE LIVES THAT REAL FOLKS LIVE (FROM DAY TO DAY) IS WHAT’S REAL. THAT’S WHAT’S UP. WE ARE LIVING THE REAL REALITY; RECEIVING A FAR GREATER TESTIMONY & AN EVEN GREATER REWARD. TV JUST PASSES THE TIME, FILLS IN SOME SPACES, AND GIVES US ALL SOMETHING TO LAUGH AT (TO KEEP FROM CRYING SOMETIME OR POPPING SOMEONE). THAT’S WHAT ENTERTAINMENT IS ALL ABOUT. JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU KNOW WHAT’S REAL & WHAT’S NOT, AND WHAT TIME IT IS.

      STAY STRONG, FOCUSED, AND ENCOURAGED…MY BROTHERS & SISTERS, AND ESPECIALLY YOU MS. STANTON. BEYOND ALL OF THE SUPERFICIAL, SHALLOW, PETTY, AND PRETENTIOUS B.S.; AND ALL OF THE CHALLENGES IN LIFE THAT WE “AS OVERCOMERS” RISE ABOVE; GOD STILL IS THE ONLY EXECUTIVE PRODUCER, AUTHOR & FINISHER THAT MATTERS MOST. LET JESUS BE YOUR GREATER REALITY & HIGHER AUTHORITY.

    • MISS CELIE

      YES…I FIND MS. STANTON’S TESTIMONY 100% CREDIBLE AS WELL. HER BOOK WILL SERVE MANY; ADVISING THE OVERLY TRUSTING & THOSE WHO SEEK/ARE TAKING SHORT-CUTS, TO NOT “FALL” FOR IT (OR THEM). IT’S NOT WORTH IT.

      ALL OF THE DETAILS THAT SHE (MS. STANTON) PROVIDES, PUTTING IT (AND HERSELF) OUT THERE, HER BODY LANGUAGE & DEMEANOR; I BELIEVE THE SISTAH. SHE HAS GUTS & HAS RISEN UP/OUT/OVER/BEYOND THE CHALLENGES OF LEARNING SOME HARD LESSONS (HAVEN’T WE ALL…ALL EXCEPT FAKE/FAY/FAY).

      ONE JUST HAS TO ADMIRE A SISTAH FROM THE REAL, WHO IS CHOOSING TO KEEP IT REAL & LIVE A LIFE OF AUTHENTICITY.

      BRI; I WISH MS. STANTON WELL (AND YOU AS WELL @BRI). MANY OF US DON’T HAVE TO SLITHER LIKE A SNAKE TO GET OURS, BABY. JUST WALK TOWARD IT, REACH OUT, AND CLAIM YOUR DUE. IT’S BEEN PAID FOR ALREADY & IS MERELY AWAITING PICK-UP.

      ALSO; I AM REMINDED OF THE OLD STORY ABOUT THE SNAKE, IN WHICH WE SHOULD ALL BE AWARE. NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH A SNAKE OR ALLOW A SNAKE INTO YOUR HEART, HOME, BED OR YOUR LIFE. BECAUSE WHEN THAT UGLY, VICIOUS, VENOMOUS SNAKE RISES UP/HISSES/ AND BITES YOUR STUPID/TRUSTING/TOO FRIENDLY & BLIND FOR YOUR OWN GOOD ASS; DON’T THEN ASK THE SNAKE WHY HE/SHE BIT YOU. THE SNAKE WILL ALWAYS RESPOND: YOU KNEW THAT I WAS A “SNAKE” WHEN YOU LET ME IN.

      DON’T EVER EXPECT A SNAKE TO BE ANYMORE THAN IT IS…A SNAKE!!!

      • butta

        agreed..i read the book and shes very convincing…i believe theres some truth to her story.

    • pooh

      WOW, WOW, WOW…we’ll soon see if she’s indicted too with her husband

    • yesindeedie

      Well every dog has his day, and Phaedra’s and Apollo’s has arrived. Whats done in the dark always comes to light and look like this young lady will finally be vindicated. Prayers for her and her children. I hope her book gets re-released so she can make some money.
