Abby Lee Miller joined the ranks of reality personalities who will have a felony record in federal court last Monday. The Dance Moms star pled guilty to one count of concealing bankruptcy assets and one count of structuring international monetary transactions. Once again the charges stem from a Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.
Last fall, Abby was charged with failing to disclose (and attempting to hide) $775,000 worth of income from Lifetime and her related appearances and master classes that resulted in 20 separate charges. Basically, what Abby is alleged to have done is having payments she was due paid to her mother instead of herself to avoid paying taxes. I am assuming based on the charges that she did that a total of 20 times in amounts that totaled $775,000.
Deadline, who has had the exclusives on most of this court battle, provided new information on Tuesday reporting, “Miller on June 20 was slammed with a whole new case that threatened her with up to another five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The dance coach allegedly brought more than $10,000 into the country from Australia on August 7, 2014, without the required reporting.”
After almost six long months after being found unresponsive in a bathtub in the Roswell condo she shared with Nick Gordon., the family of Bobbi Kriss has announced her death.
An attorney for the family said “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July, 26 2015, surrounded by her family, She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”
Over the past six weeks we have followed this story and been disturbed at all of the circus surrounding this event. On July 16th, it was clear that preparations were being made to let her go. Now, ten days later it has been confirmed that she was finally allowed to RIP. Continue reading
Last week on Dance Moms, Abby was beginning to break down over Paige’s lawsuit against her. This is a separate case from her mother Kelly’s on going lawsuit. Abby was upset that the media was at her home.
The very first thing that happens is that Abby is served with a subpoena to appear in court by Kelly. I believe this is the civil suit. It could be the criminal one. And they made sure to do it at her studio while Dance Moms was filming. Abby is crying and upset. She wants to make a statement to the press. Holly tries hard to talk her down off of that cliff. Holly looks fantastic like she might have done work done. The moms convince Abby to come back in and go on with rehearsal.
At pyramid, Kalani is not there. This is the second time Kalani has been late. Holly is pissed that Abby doesn’t punish Kalani for being late. Mackenzie was on the bottom of the for not being weird enough in the group dance. Maddie was next. MADDIE WAS NEXT! Abby says she was just a twin with Kendall nothing special. This seems to me to indicate Melissa has done something to piss Abby off. Nia is next but she gets compliments from Abby for her solo and her group dance efforts. Next is Kendall. I did not like her solo and think she should have place below Nia. On the top is Kalani for having the highest scoring solo. Oh I get it now. She is trying to make Maddie think she has some competition. Continue reading
As I previously referenced here and here James Radford Jr. has filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in the case of Phaedra Parks v Angela Stanton. Radford has published the motion in its entirety on his website. In addition to asking for a judgment in favor of Stanton, Stanton is also requesting legal fees due to the frivolous legal action.
Stanton provides numerous examples of evidence of the close bond between the plaintiff and defendant. Both women it seems have introduced the other to their families and have socialized with each other’s families on numerous occasions. It seems that Phaedra had been a many of Angela’s family gatherings and attended Angela’s mother’s funeral even though Angela herself was incarcerated at the time of her mother’s death. To be fair, Phaedra does love her a good funeral… what? She does! Continue reading
This morning James Radford, Angela Stanton’s attorney
filed a Motion for Summary Judgment in favor of Stanton
. They are asking for all charges against Stanton to be dismissed.
Based on Stanton’s own deposition and the two I have posted today
, all the evidence on record supports that the information in Stanton’s book is true.
Phaedra Parks has REFUSED to give a deposition according to my sources. A motion for sanctions against Phaedra for refusing to give a deposition has also been filed,
according to my sources.
How the heck can you refuse to be deposed about the claims of your case? I mean she is the PLAINTIFF for crying out loud! Why would you not want to make your claims under oath and on the record? Very Odd.
A courthouse source has provide this deposition, and another that will follow in the second part of this series of posts exclusively to Tamaratattles.com. Please be professional when referring to this post and provide the appropriate credit and links! Thanks.
This second deposition was taken last December by telephone. James Holland is the father of one of Angela Stanton’s children and is currently incarcerated. I am bemused by the fact that the term “head doctor” was used in an actual deposition. Is that wrong? Continue reading
This deposition of Justin Cody, a father of one of Angela Stanton’s children, was taken by James Radford, attorney of record for Angela Stanton, as part of pre-trial discovery. The deposition was taken at Robert A. Deyton Federal Prison last November. It’s full of interesting information that appears to validate the information in Stanton’s book, Lies of a Real Housewife. Cody states that Phaedra Parks was a participant in and perhaps the mastermind behind, a serious of criminal activities for which Stanton was prosecuted and convicted.

Many of us felt that the tone Stanton’s book had the feel of a “scorned lover.” It is interesting to read the reason Cody cites for his breakup with Stanton. Continue reading
