Yesterday VIBE Magazine issued the following “clarification” regarding part of Angela Stanton’s wild-ass accusations against Phaedra.
VIBE would like to state a clarification on the matter regarding the video interview released on VIBE.com on March 15th, 2012. In the first clip (of three), Ms. Stanton refers to an individual involved in the criminal scheme described in the book, as the brother of Apollo [Phaedra’s husband]. It appears as if Everett and Apollo are not related by blood and Ms. Stanton refers to Everett as Apollo’s “street brother” in her book. The statements made in the video clips were made by Ms. Stanton in a figurative manner and not in literal terms.
It “appears as if” Everett and Apollo are not siblings? Really now. Good thing that “book” is nothing more than some Internet blatherings packaged as an ebook. Pretty easy to make edits. I imagine there will be more edits forthcoming.
Meanwhile, a new blog has suddenly shown up with nothing but a phone interview with Angela on it. When asked how she feels about being called a hater, Angela says that people hated Jesus for telling the truth too. Uh-huh, Angela Stanton is just like Jesus, y’all! The interviewer says that in the book Angela seems like she is trying to seek Phaedra’s approval. They ask her what the most drastic thing she has done to seek Phaedra’s approval. Angela says it wasn’t about seeking her approval it was about loyalty. The interviewer asks her “What exactly was Phaedra’s role in the car jacking crimes? ” Angela responds with, “it’s in the book”. Q: Were you surprised when Phaedra and Apollo got married? A: Yes I was, and the reasons why are in the book. This is her answer to every single question. Q: Is there anything you want Phaedra to know? A: I told her exactly what I wanted her to know…..(you guessed it) IN THE BOOK. Angela did say that the story was NOT a tell all book about Phaedra but the story of her life since birth. So the title Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil is sort of an odd choice for someone who is not trying to smear someone else’s reputation but simply telling the story of their hard-knock life doncha think?

Meanwhile, Hiphopenquirer.com is reporting that Stanton backed out of their interview after she requested a list of questions up front. This seems counter-productive to getting the truth out there, doesn’t it? HHE also called the music executive that Stanton claims raped her in the book. He claims that Stanton has in fact tried to extort her in this way in the past for money. In the book Stanton says she was afraid to press charges, but now apparently she feels comfortable making a public accusation now.
