It’s about time! As we previously reported Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Apollo Nida is battling charges of bank fraud and identity theft. Meanwhile, his usually quick to speak up wife Phaedra Parks has not had nary word to say about it….and still doesn’t have anything to say about it to our knowledge.
However, she doesn’t seem to have a problem defending herself against allegations made by Angela Stanton in a tell all book that Stanton wrote. In the book she claims that Phaedra was the mastermind behind the crime ring that got Apollo sent to the big house a number of years ago.
According to Radar Online, Parks filed an affidavit on March 31, 2014 in Gwinnett County, Georgia, as part of the defamation lawsuit that she brought against Stanton for writing her book Lies of a Real Housewife.
Per the court documents Parks says,
“Due to the falsity of the material in the book, and to protect her reputation, on or about September 26, 2012, [Parks] filed a defamation action against [Stanton].
Stanton knew the statements she made about the plaintiff were false when she made them. I have no knowledge of or connection with any ‘bank fraud scheme and was never involved in any criminal enterprise with [Stanton].
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.”
Stanton claimed in her book and in subsequent emails that Parks oversaw a “criminal enterprise” involving bank fraud, auto title theft, and other unsavory business practices.
We sure do hope we get to hear more from Phaedra on all of this…but with the way things have been going so far….we won’t hold our breath!
