Angela Stanton Speaks Out On Phaedra Parks & Apollo Nida Following New Fraud Charges

Angela Stanton RHOA Phaedra and Apollo


Angela Stanton is smelling the sweet scent of redemption.

lf you recall, Angela made headlines back in 2012 after she released a book titled  Lies of a Real House Wife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil. The book was pretty much an autobiography/exposé about Angela’s life of crime with Apollo Nida AND Phaedra Parks. Yes you read that right. Phaedra immediately filed a $30 million lawsuit which was of course effective in shutting Angela up.

In a new statement, Angela reveals she now feels vindicated days after the Feds charged Apollo with fraud…again.

“Although tragic, the news of Apollo’s arrest has been vindicating for me. Since I published my book, Phaedra Parks has used her wealth and influence in an attempt to silence me. She filed lawsuits against my publisher, and threatened them with years of expensive litigation if they did not cease publication of my book. As a result, I lost nearly all the royalties I was owed. Ms. Parks used her influence in the media to discredit my story and smear my name, casting me as a delusional liar on the pages of popular blogs. After going to prison and losing everything, my story was all I had left, and she took that from me.”

To give you more on the back story, Angela, who spent a few years in prison for car thefts and fraud, revealed she was involved in runnings scams with the Real Housewives of Atlanta couple. Angela’s revelation was shocking, because while the world knew of Apollo’s criminal past and his 5-year stint in prison, no one had ever accused Phaedra, an attorney, of ever being involved.

To promote her book, Angela gave did a video interview in which she went into specific details about Phaedra’s alleged involvement in the crimes. In fact, most people believed Angela, which then became a problem for Phaedra who quickly hired high profile attorneys and filed a lawsuit in an attempt to shut Angela up.

Well Phaedra’s plan worked as Angela’s publishers stopped making more copies of the book, and media outlets did not want any parts of the legal drama, therefore declining to interview Angela.

Fast forward to today, Apollo has been charged once again with identity theft and bank fraud by the Feds. Accused of stealing millions. In fact it turns out Phaedra’s high profile attorneys quietly withdrew from her case in September after they got wind of the Federal investigation against Apollo.

To summarize this, it now looks like Angela might have been telling the truth after all, and she is now ready to talk again: ”I am ready to share my story. Over the coming days, I will be seeking out the appropriate forum to do so.”

Good for Angela because the public is certainly ready to listen. Angela’s full statement is below. I must say as a former Phaedra fan, I find her actions highly disgusting. She sued and defamed this woman repeatedly, and now it appears, Angela’s version was more than likely the truth, or at least, had a lot of truth to it. If I were in Angela’s shoes, I would countersue Phaedra for defamation and damages for loss of wages.
