Real Lies the Angela Stanton Book Review


Angela Stanton is mad. I'mma tell you why she's mad. Angela Stanton is mad because Atlanta attorney Phaedra Parks has been able to do something Angela cannot: Move on...

Let me refresh your memory: Angela Stanton is the woman who claims Real Housewives of Atlanta's Phaedra Parks was a criminal mastermind who guided her into a life of crime and then walked away when Angela got caught [click here if you missed that].

Angela promised to expose Phaedra's criminal empire in her new book 'Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil but the only thing she exposed was her own bitterness at being left behind.

In the beginning of the book Angela describes her family as a dysfunctional one, rife with child molestation, murder and cons gone wrong.

Angela talks about the first time she was arrested at age twelve for shoplifting and brags that breaking the law gave her a thrill.

By the time Angela met Phaedra Parks she had already been arrested over 30 times.

The first scam Angela connects to Phaedra is a check writing scam where Angie was given business checks that she used to buy electronics all over town. Only Phaedra isn't the mastermind of the scam. Angela says Phaedra introduced her to Atlanta party impresario Alex Gidewon and that he was the one with the checks.

Next Angela connects Phaedra to an insurance check scam. That's when Phaedra introduced Angie to Apollo. The insurance scam was Apollo's thing not Phaedra's and Angela readily admits that Phaedra and Apollo were not a couple at that time. Far from it.

Then came the car scam. That's when Phaedra introduced Angie to Everette. Again, Phaedra was the middle man according to Angie not the mastermind.

I won't spoil the plot twists for those of you who want to read the book, but after Angela was released from jail in 2006, for scamming on cars with Everett, Phaedra distanced herself from Angela and stopped taking her calls.

The common theme in Angela's book is how Phaedra had moved on from her former life.

Angela admits that her anger at seeing Everette and Apollo on Real Housewives of Atlanta with Phaedra was the impetus that drove her to write this book.

Ironically Angela insists she just wants the chance to move forward, while being angry at Phaedra for doing the same.

All that aside, the book is an interesting read if you're into ghetto literature just don't read it expecting to get the drop on Phaedra Parks because a criminal attorney who introduces criminals to each other is not exactly an expose.

Bitter bitch and I don't even like Phaedra. Angela is a miserable mess of a woman and has no one to blame for her failings and fuckups in life, except HERSELF.

30 MOTHERFUCKING TIMES YOU'VE BEEN ARRESTED?? 30??!!! Go jump off a fucking bridge you fucking loser. We all know you'll get arrested again for some more dumb shit.

Phaedra is still a scumbag who used a revolving door ex con with ton's of unresolved issues. with that being said girl it was only one chapter is a sad saga of a life run amok, not enough to garner the attention of the masses to buy your book. after all who is checking for phaedra and them ho's on that house wife mess. forget about Phaedra and work on yourself and your issues, your time might be better spent mentoring to young girls on a fast life of crime to buy designer fuckeries. there is a group in Atlanta can't remember the name off hand, but they have a sista heading up the agency working to stop child sex slave ring, I think you should give her a call to help with that issue, that is after you have completed some intensive therapy sessions, gone to a legitimate healer and get your self cleaned off and resolved some of those fucked up ancestral energies.

Well, regardless of the fact that she may be biter(ALL OF US WOULD BE, front, or not), that still doesn't change that fact that if what she alleges about Phaedra is true, then whether by this woman's hand, or someone other unforeseen event, in the long run Phae ain't gettin away with nothin' when it's all said and done!! Truth be damned!! Plus, if only a small portion of this book was dedicated to her life during 'Fraudra-gate', then this woman has all the right as any to tell her story..buy, or don't!!

You should blog more Bitch...

after reading that,all I can say is alot of us have criminal friends....her expose never directly says I stole this car or cashed this check and gave monies to Phaedra. So I would think its merit would be minimal,especially considering how crooked Georgia is anyway.

I'm honestly wondering what this lady truly expected out of all of this. It can't be a real expose of any kind because if Paedra was worth her salt as an attorney she has the legal know how to suppress any serious information about herself from being released. It can't be money or fame because outside of the regular RHOA viewers and/or a small cluster of urban blog viewers, no gives a damn about Phaedra or her checkered past.

Hopefully now that she has released this book she can take what ever petty-cash she rakes in to pay for some therapy bills and move on to be a better, productive member of society.

Very happy to see an original post from Snitch and not a copy/paste from another site. Well done.

About Ms. Parks: I did want the allegations to be true. My mouth was watering at the thought of her living some sort of double life.
Oh well.

Phaedra wasn't connect to any of it yet Angela got arrest 30 times; smells like pure hate to me. I'll give my money to support Terri Woods or K'wan.

I think you all should go to Amazon and read the honest reviews from unbiased readers! The person who wrote this article is clearly #TeamPhaedra I read the book & totally disagree w/ what this article said! Angela has 5 star ratings across the board! Let the Lady tell her story. It's her life!!!

Anonymous said...

If Angela is that Honest & Open about her own Life, why is it so hard to believe that she is telling the TRUTH about Phaedra????

Who really gives a damn!

I believe Phaedra is trash. I would expose her too and her day is coming. If you are gonna do dirt take care of the people that take the fall. This lady is a mess, but so Phaedra. Phaedra just can hide a little more.

Anonymous said...

Did I miss something? Did Phaedra get this woman locked up 30 times? That's messed up! Phaedra know she is wrong for that.

This hoodrat is just mad....she was the criminal and all Phaedra did was hook her up with the right people so that she can continue with her criminals ways. No harm - no file. and if she was already arrested 30 times prior to meeting Phaedra - it only proves she's not a very smart criminal - he writing books would be a good route to go but she needs to get another story line - there are so many ghetto books with this read its pitiful - that this is the only literature that african american people can understand - some not all - just a da*n shame.

Seems like you all are missing the point. Sure, she got locked up.....but when it comes to the Felonies, Phaedra did all the introductions to all the people that got locked up for it. Question is......how is that possible without her either being partially responsible ( which is wrong ), or at a minimum being a profiteer from the money that was made in all the criminal activities in which she was a player in ( also wrong ). EVERYONE in her inner circle has gone to jail....except who? PHAEDRA! They should lock her ass up and lose the key for a few years as well.
