In the lawsuit drama that will not end. Author Angela Stanton is suing Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks for defamation. As you know Angela is a former cohort of Phaedra and wrote a tell-all book about her exploits and criminal activity with former partner in crime, the book Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil is a semi autobiographical novel about Angela’s life from childhood to adulthood. Phaedra initially sued a $30 million libel lawsuit against Angela for the alleged libelous details Angela reveals in the book. She demanded a jury trial, $5 million in compensatory and $25 million in punitive damages, and retractions.

Everybody knows Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks is suing Angela Stanton and Vibe Magazine for defamation over Angela’s memoir, ‘Lies of Real Housewife.
Now Angela turns the tables on Phaedra by filing a defamation lawsuit of her own…
Angela’s lawyer, James Radford, explains the new filing,
“We have filed our own claims for defamation, tortious interference with business relationships, punitive damages, and attorneys’ fees.”
“Phaedra Parks’ lawsuit and the tactics employed against Ms. Stanton and her publisher have undermined Stanton’s ability to market the intellectual property that is her compelling personal narrative.”
This will be very interesting to see the outcome of Phaedra’s court drama after all she is Atlanta’s premiere entertainment lawyer. What are your thoughts? Post your comments below.
