UPDATE: I read the court’s order for Phaedra to comply with the depo. The topics are narrowed to two. One, her agreement with Augustus Publishing resulting in her dropping her suit against them. And two, any “non-privileged” questions regarding Apollo and his “alleged” criminal activities. Which is pretty much the entire case more or less. So the depo might be interesting. Unfortunately, the agreement with Augustus has a confidentiality agreement involved. This means that the court will seal the depo when it is entered into evidence. So we probably won’t ever get to read it.
In other news, Phaedra is on her way to LA. Who wants to go to the taping of Ellen and report back? :) No depo today, tomorrow, Wednesday or probably Thursday so I suppose she will squeeze it in on Friday or Monday of next week? That Phaedra always pushing things to the last minute.
I’m getting really bored with this drama. One would think that Phaedra would have better things to do being a single mother with two young sons, filming a TV show, selling her workout videos, hawking her etiquette book to the less genteel, running a busy entertainment law practice representing celebrities, embalming all those bodies of humans and pets alike, taking her prayer cloth on a countrywide tour of religious congregations, making talk show appearances, building moats and gates around her white house, and now filing for divorce from her felonious husband. One would think so. But one would be wrong. Because more than two years and countless attorneys later, Parks v. Stanton is still a thing. One has to wonder how long cases can drag on especially with and uncooperative plaintiff.
I got tired of transcribing the ridiculous excuse for a deposition this summer. I got tired of waiting for the plaintiff’s response to the defense’s motion to compel, which turned up last month. It was equally as ridiculous as the “deposition.” Plaintiff’s attorney, who must be dying to jump ship like the others before him have, responded by saying that Phaedra did answer all relevant questions and that Defendant’s attorney was trying to make the case about Apollo. Isn’t Apollo a big part of the case? The alleged libel of Phaedra is that Angela wrote a book that said that Phaedra was involved in Apollo’s criminal mess, right? If this was happening on a TV show we’d all be screaming about the absurdity of the storyline. But it’s not a TV show. This is actually going on in a court of law. Over two years. Continue reading
Phaedra Parks Showing Her Ass.
UPDATE: IT’S OFFICIAL: Phaedra is listed on Ellen’s website as a guest with Heidi Klum! Waiting for hell to freeze over next…
Phaedra’s publicist has confirmed that Phaedra will film an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on October 14th that will air on October 15th. According to a statement, “Phaedra will be very candid about what happened with Apollo, her life now and plans for the future.” Her publicist has indicated that WWHL had not approached her for an interview.
Phaedra will likely be about as candid and Teresa was on WWHL. For someone who can’t give a deposition in her own case, where she is the plaintiff, I can’t imagine her doing anything but trying to hawk her book. I cannot for the life of me figure out why Ellen would book her. She rarely has any Reality TV personalities on the show. Frankly, none of this makes sense to me. We shall see what happens. If it happens, it should be interesting. Continue reading
I do not do too many blind items on this site, but I do enjoy reading them at Crazy Days and Nights. The guy that runs the site is an entertainment lawyer who seems to have an endless supply of sources with credible information. By the time he reveals his blinds, you find yourself saying, “Oh, that makes perfect sense now.” Today he revealed this blind he first published on February 26th.

This Southeast based Housewife is popping pills almost constantly and rarely shows up for work and when she does show up just sleeps on the floor for an hour
or two before leaving.
Phaedra’s house is white now.
This post is another TamaraTattles.com EXCLUSIVE. Thanks to those who do not steal the story but instead use an excerpt and a clearly identified link to this post. Those who do not could suffer from any number of maladies from incontinence to toe fungus to congophilic angiopathy. Make a good choice fellow entertainment writers.
Let’s face it. The Real Housewives of ANYWHERE make terrible neighbors. But the Real Housewives of Atlanta have taken it to an art form. Remember when Kim Zolciak was in that house she rented from Kendra Davis? There was a time when Kim had security guards hanging out on her front lawn to keep Kendra and her husband, the landlords, away from her. When she moved she took most of the landscape with her (because she planted it, dammit!) and gave it away to her new neighbors in the surrounding condos! Kenya Moore had landlord issues as well and of course both of those cases the cameras would invade the neighborhood and film all the drama. Hell, Kim had a huge wedding in her back yard and the cops were called. Sheree Whitfield had neighbors MOVE OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD over the massive over construction that never ends on the monstrosity of what may, one day, some how be, Chateau Sheree. I’ve lost count of the years that has been going on.
Up until recently, Phaedra Parks has managed to get along with her neighbors fairly well. Then in April of 2013 Phaedra and Phamily moved into a nice quiet cul-de-sac. It’s off to itself, and not officially part of any subdivision. Just five very nice houses in a very convenient location. Then filming started. Last season, the black van that supposedly picked everyone up at Nene’s for the Savannah trip actually picked everyone up house to house. All of the “who was late to the pick-up time” was entirely fabricated. Neighbors say that bus was in the cul-de-sac filming Phaedra getting on the bus for two hours. Why? Who knows. But it was not really the housewives arrivals that were late it was the long drawn out filming of everyone getting on the bus. In fact that waiting scene was probably a reshoot afterward because by the time the bus actually left it was quite late, which is why they arrived in Savannah so late.
But last year’s filming was pretty tame at Phaedra’s. This year has not been. Between the filming crews and all the comings and goings and book tours, and side pieces and malfunctioning security alarms and police, the baby sitters, the nannies, the overnight nannies, the stylists, the make up people and on and on the neighborhood is not such a peaceful place anymore.

On Saturday, Cynthia, Kenya and Claudia faced a long grueling day of filming. Okay, it may have been a long day but it certainly doesn’t sound grueling to me. With all of the various factions on the upcoming season with way too many “housewives” I’m going to refer to these three who seem to be quite happy filming together as Team Pretty.
So Team Pretty was tasked with spending their weekend with a ton of hunky guys because the Bailey Agency was hired by Ebony Magazine to find twenty hot men for the February 2015 issue of Ebony. The ladies spent Saturday at the Sheraton hotel holding an open casting call for successful men between the ages of 28 -50. I guess Kenya got some digits. :) It sounds like a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon to me. Continue reading

EXCLUSIVE DISCLAIMER: Stealing this story will probably give your mother liver cancer and make your children retarded. DON’T DO IT! Just quote and link like a normal person.

Tomorrow in the ATL a new fancypants multi-use complex is having its grand opening. I don’t know if this is happening all over the country but here multi-use complexes are the next big thing. From Buckhead, to a stones throw from my ghetto, high-end multi-use conglomerates have been booming for the past decade. The concept is live, work and socialize all in the same little neighborhood. Most of them have high-end townhouses or apartments, a Whole Foods, and a variety of upscale restaurants and taverns in addition to some sort of shopping area, movie theater and other attractions. Atlantic Station was one of the most popular ones to date in the Atlanta area.
Tomorrow is the officially opening of the grand kahuna of such developments, Buckhead Atlanta. While the official opening is tomorrow, it seems they are allowing the felons by Bravo adjacent in tonight for an invitation only black tie event to celebrate the housewives who have tons of money to
hide/launder spend at Hermes. The invitations went out to their best Atlanta customers and clearly to the folks related to people they have a promotional deal with like, Bravo. Hermes and Fado Irish Pub have been there for a couple of years now, right in the middle of all of the construction. Tonight Hermes cut the ribbon on their new and improved location. The whole shebang will take many more months to roll out but RHOA and Love and Hip Hop Atlanta have done so much for Christian Louboutin’s reputation he has decided to bless us with a local freestanding store. I could barely type that with a straight face, but it is true that you will soon have a freestanding Loub store here in Atlanta. Other high-end stores include Jimmy Choo, Alice+Olivia, and Akris. Plus a bunch of overpriced restaurants I’ve never heard of because we need more of those. Not. Continue reading
Not much really. She’s laying low at home with the kids and the babysitter. The film crew showed up this afternoon for just over an hour. There was no drama, no security alarms, no wild stories unlike the last time. But hey, they haven’t been gone two hours yet, so there is still time. I suppose she had some talking heads to do for her jailbird husband storyline. I’m torn between a game of GUESS THE HEADLINE! Perhaps something like Phaedra Refuses to Leave House! or maybe Phaedra Drowns Her Worries in Boxed Wine! Bravo Production Hold Intervention!
I find it odd that not one time has any housewife shown up to film at Phaedra’s house. Not even Kandi… Continue reading
Apollo is out on tour y’all!
In this post, I hope to separated the facts of the last 36 hours or so from the fiction that most sites are reporting. Let’s start with the things on the Atlanta end of the situation, as they are the easiest to confirm or debunk.
FACT: Apollo Nida has not been at his former residence with Phaedra since Sunday, September 7, 2014.
This is not even debatable. I have a source with eyes on the house all day long, every day. More than one actually. When your neighbor films a television show at their home, that gets the neighbors talking. When the man of the house makes news for committing fraud and is sentenced to the federal penitentiary, you become on heightened alert counting the days until leaves. For the past couple of months, I received daily updates, photos and commentary on the comings and goings at Chez Parks-Nida. I know the comings and goings of the nannies, Bravo film crew, make-up wardrobe people, Bravo cars provided for filming. It’s all documented. My source is golden. Continue reading
I am so behind today and only have an hour and a half until Couples Therapy. While drama raged on at Phaedra’s house, the fashionista gang of RHOA is in NYC to support Cynthia Bailey’s participation in Betsy Johnson’s show. Confirmed so far are Kandi, Kenya and Demetria. Clearly Phaedra is not there, nor is Nene or Porsha. Not sure about Claudia. Sorry I just don’t have time to research this today. I am doing about ten posts at once right now. Continue reading
I hope my cellie has a purdy mouf!

Oh Look! It seems I am the source for another major websites story again today! Even still the site manages to get things wrong. Phaedra and Apollo filmed their last Real Housewives of Atlanta scenes last Thursday in a shoot that went late into the evening. The next day Phaedra took the boys and left. Reports that Phaedra was concerned for her physical safety are not true. In the last few weeks Apollo and Phaedra have been living together without any major incidents and have entertained friends and family who came to say their goodbyes over Labor Day weekend. Apollo spent his last two days home alone without visitors washing his car and riding his brand new motorcycle. On Sunday Apollo, left and headed to Tennessee where he spent the last two days of his freedom partying in Nashville. This morning he made the three-hour drive to Lexington and turned himself in. Perhaps that site can make some corrections to its story.
Felons by Bravo
UPDATE: Phaedra and the kids left the house on the evening of Friday the 5th and have not returned to the house. Apollo left Sunday the 7th about 2 pm to make is way to Kentucky. He drove his own car. No one has returned to the house yet. Apollo must turn himself in by noon tomorrow. He is supposedly spending tonight, in Nashville, Tennessee. Updates as they become available.

I’d like to move away from the #FelonsByBravo in New Jersey and focus on one of our hometown #FelonsByBravo , Apollo Nida, who is getting ready to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington, Kentucky on Wednesday. I’ve been hold back some steaming hot tea.
For the past few weeks, I’ve had a source very close to the situation with Phaedra and Apollo updating me on what has been going on. I’ve been keeping this under my hat to avoid outing my source and causing them any inconvenience, but the time has come to let you in on what my exclusive Tamara Tattles spies have been reporting.
It’s been a long hot summer to say the least between Apollo and Phaedra Parks. For most of May and June, Apollo was doing his Farewell Tour through the south’s sleaziest small town strip clubs “promoting his brand.” He was the cover boy for Sister2Sister magazine for the month of May and was going buck wild on twitter posting videos about “haters” who were “disparaging his brand.” He begged Twitter to “verify him” as a celebrity (they did not oblige.) It was phenomenally hysterical. During that time, Phaedra went on her Southern Belle Prayer Cloth Tour so that she would be out-of-town whenever he was not. It was War of the Roses and they went weeks without being home a the same time. Apollo spent some time in Philly. Phaedra spent some time with Kandi and Fantasia in Cancun for a big blowout girl’s trip to celebrate Fantasia’s birthday. The unhappy couple was anywhere away from home that they could be for months.
In July filming for RHOA began and things began to change. Apollo stopped the self-aggrandizing tweets and began just asking people on Twitter for emotional support. On July 8th his “eight-year” sentence was handed down. Phaedra did not support him or go to court. He was salty and gave some more delusional interviews. He really doesn’t know when to shut up. You can read about the actual amount of time Apollo will serve here. Continue reading
