Phaedra Lawyers Up Against Criminal Accusations From Tell-All WriterPublished by Dior Noir on Monday, March 19, 2012 at 10:00 am.
Lies, all lies. That’s what Phaedra Parks is calling the allegations that she was previously involved in insurance check fraud, auto-theft and racketeering, all slung by a woman named Angela Stanton. Stanton, who claims to be a partner in crime to The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s previous alleged illegal activities, turned to Vibe last week to spill the details and promote her new book called Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell The Truth and Shame The Devil.
Like any good lawyer, Phaedra quickly objected, and she even tapped a few of her legal buddies to help smooth things out. “The interview circulating is a lie. My attys @bjbernstein & @LLinWood will deal w/this false & defamatory interview swiftly,” she Tweeted (March 15).
The reality personality would be referring to her Atlanta-based lawyers B.J. Bernstein and Lin Wood. Wood, a civil defense lawyer hired by the reality personality to to file defamation lawsuits against the allegations also made a statement on Twitter and said, “False accusations have been published about @PhaedraParks. @bjbernstein and I shall aggressively address and refute these lies. Stay tuned.”
It seems like Phaedra might be able to squash this. After all she’s been more than forthcoming about her husband’s criminal past on her Bravo network show. Why would she have left out such a huge detail out of her past especially while flaunting around as a defense lawyer knowing that anyone could dig up her past. I mean really, the internet finds out everything, if Phaedra had been charged with a crime in the past wouldn’t TMZ or somebody have pulled up the public record by now?
