So What’s Phaedra Up To Today?

RHOA Phaedra

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

The Mysterious Adventures of Apollo Nida

Apollo Nida Traveling While Out on Bail

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

Police Arrive on Filming Scene at Phaedra’s House

RHOA Police arrive on scenePolice arrived at Phaedra’s house around 4:30 this afternoon.  Bravo cameras were still there filming an interior scene with Phaedra. Ayden was wandering around the neighbor’s houses despite his babysitter being on the scene. Ayden has several young playmates in the neighborhood but they are all at school. He is playing with a neighbor’s cat at the moment. I have also learned that Phaedra took the boys and the nannies to the beach when she left last Friday.  The rest of the story is here.

The TMZ story is false. Apollo is NOT at the house. Phaedra has had an alarm system installed that has been malfunctioning a lot lately. The police have been out to the house several times since it was installed as has the Alarm company. There was no screaming, no Apollo, no confrontation. Continue reading

Apollo Nida Turns Himself In; Phaedra is Already Filming.

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.

TamaraTattles Exclusive: Apollo Nida Prepares for Prison

Felons by Bravo

Felons by Bravo

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

Apollo Nida To Turn Himself in Two Weeks From Today!

Felons by Bravo

Felons by Bravo

Well that was a lot faster than I expected.  Apollo Nida has been ordered to turn himself in to FMC Lexington in Lexington Kentucky on September 10th 2014 by 12 noon.  FMC Lexington is an old prison that was once used primarily as a psychiatric  hospital. The word on the prison circuit is that it has limited air conditioning and gets very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Apollo will be allowed to spend up to $320 a month on beanie weenies  and snickers bars. He will be in a hospital environment for the first part of his “drug treatment” program. When he is cleared to work he will spend 90 days working in food  service before he can request a different job assignment.  The best job assignments are in one of the onsite factories.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Four: Remembrance of Things Past

Phaedra face2

In case you have missed any previous chapters, here is a handy dandy link list.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter One: When is a Deposition NOT A Deposition?

Yet another motion to compel. Phaedra was extremely uncooperative at her deposition.

Phaedra refuses to answer pretty much every question about Apollo.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Three: I Did Know Once, But I Have Sort of Forgotten.

Phaedra has amnesia. She can’t remember she has a workout DVD business with Apollo. She can’t remember her accountants name, she can’t remember her bank branch, in fact she denies every going into a bank.

In this chapter we will focus on Phaedra’s relationship with Angela. In one of the depositions of Angela’s former boyfriends he seems to think that Phaedra and Angela had a more intimate relationship than just friends. Let’s see what Phaedra has to say… Continue reading

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Intermission: Taking A Look Back

RHOA Episode 2: Funerals by Phaedra, Lesbian Pride, and A Birthday Party for KimI am currently working on Chapter Four of the Parks v. Stanton Saga. Before you read the next chapter, which will get to the meat of the case about Angela’s accusations toward Phaedra, there are some other depositions.  In order to be caught up for Chapter Four, there are a few things you should read. So while I am working, I am going to give you a suggested reading list.

Phaedra Parks: Have We Been Ignoring the Signs All Along?

This post contains an interview with Angela Stanton. It outlines the salient points of her allegations against Phaedra. Among other things that led to me finally buying Angela’s story.

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Three: I Did Know Once, Only I’ve Sort of Forgotten

RHOA Phaedra Deposition

 

“Rabbit’s clever,” said Pooh thoughtfully.
“Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit’s clever.”
“And he has Brain.”
“Yes,” said Piglet, “Rabbit has Brain.”
There was a long silence.
“I suppose,” said Pooh, “that that’s why he never understands anything.”
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

After spending an incredible amount of time getting Phaedra to admit she has a husband who she can’t remember meeting and knows essentially nothing about, Phaedra finally remembered when presented with documentation by Radford that she did indeed have a business with Apollo called Nida Fitness.  After rambling responses about the daily operations of Nida Fitness a much-needed break was taken.

After the break, Radford questions Parks about National Recovery Group Inc.  If you recall on RHOA Phaedra would tell people who Apollo’s job was “asset recovery.”  National Recovery Group is one of the shell companies used in Apollo’s fraud scheme.

Q. Ms. Parks, What is National Recovery Group Inc?
A. I don’t know.

Q. Okay. Are you aware of being listed as an incorporator on something called National Recovery Group, Inc.?
A. No, sir.

Q. Do you know what is at  239 Harriett St, Atlanta Georgia 30315?
A. No, sir. Continue reading

The Curious Case of Parks v. Stanton Chapter Two: A Tale Told By An Idiot, Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing

Phaedra face2

ATTENTION: I’m thrilled that you may want to excerpt small portions of my work and link to my site with proper credit. Thanks so much! But if you are here to steal my work, only bad things await you,  ranging from karmic paper cuts to the wrath of my legal team.  You could wind up with cysts and diseases.  You don’t want that, do you?

Chapter Two: A Tale Told by An Idiot Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying Nothing

It’s interesting that that the genteel Phaedra who starts off with “yes sir, no sir”  quickly devolves into visions of neck rolling, eye rolling and doodling. It’s also interesting that Radford manages to get her insolence on the record. If you missed Chapter One, you should go read that first. It will answer your constant question of “Can she do this? Is this legal?” It’s all in the motion.

Here is another excerpt from the Brief in Support by James Radford:
Sidenote: Trial junkies will love his blog. Lot’s of interesting cases from everywhere.

“This refusal to answer questions is the latest instance of Parks’ abusive and bad faith conduct in this litigation. She has filed a frivolous lawsuit against Defendant Stanton, used her wealth to stifle the publication of Stanton’s truthful narrative, and then refused the basic obligation of any litigant to fully participate in the discovery process. Parks apparently believes she is above the law, even in her own lawsuit. She must be compelled to fully cooperate in her deposition, and her conduct must be sanctioned. The credibility of the civil discovery process is very much at stake here.”

And now, more from the deposition, the Apollo questions.

Q: Is you legal name Phaedra Parks?
A: Yes Sir. It’s Phaedra Parks Nida.

Q: Did you have it legally changed upon your marriage to Mr. Nida?
A:Yes

Q:And when did you marry Mr. Nida?
A: November the first, 2009. Continue reading

The Curious Case Of Parks v. Stanton Chapter One: When Is a Deposition Not A Deposition?

RHOA Phaedra call Kenya Rachet

Chapter One : When Is A Deposition Not a Deposition?

Yesterday, everyone’s favorite hermit ventured across multiple counties and merged onto numerous interstates (God, I hate merging) in order to obtain this summer’s must-read, The Deposition of Phaedra Parks from the case of Parks v. StantonAnd it was so worth it. I spent some time perusing the six or eight in thick file with all of the original motions that have been filed, I purchased copies of the most recent one, and then got caught in a horrific storm. I pulled into a Zaxby’s  and began to read. There is so much to discuss that I will be posting in installments.

But first, (said in my best Julie Chen voice) let’s remind ourselves of where we left off.  My last update was on June 24th. On June 19th, the judge had ruled that Phaedra must sit for deposition with 45 days.  So I’ve been patiently waiting to hear that occurred. The 45 days came and went without any indication that Phaedra had been deposed. Then, last Thursday, there was a new Motion to Compel filed by Stanton’s attorney, James Radford. I dashed over to the courthouse to get my hot little hands on it, and Lo! and Behold! there was a deposition!  So what is this Motion to Compel all about?  Thankfully, Radford writes motions in plain English unlike those New Jersey goons who write motions for the Laurita bankruptcy case. So I’m going to transcribe much of it for you here, in the first chapter. Then we will move on to a variety of topics covered in the deposition itself.

The actual scheduling of the deposition was yet another puzzling event in an already very curious case. We have discussed before that a plaintiff refusing to sit for a deposition is unheard of.  She even tried to use an affidavit as a proxy for her deposition responsibility. As one TamaraTattles.com commenter who is an attorney put it, “ the most interesting thing is that she filed an affidavit on 3/31/14 presumably to defeat Stanton’s motion for summary judgment. Anyone can file an affidavit. She filed it to serve as a proxy for her deposition but this is not allowed. A party cannot file self-serving affidavits and the “facts” set forth therein must be admissible in evidence; they cannot be based on information and belief.” Or, in plain English, Phaedra is shuckin’ and jivin’ every way she can to avoid being deposed.

Have a Seat And Sip This RHOA Tea I Have For You

Real housewives of Atlanta

I have a fresh pot of EXCLUSIVELY SOURCED RHOA in dribs and drabs and the time has come to share it with you. Please use only excerpts and include a clear link to TamaraTattles.com when reporting on this story! Thanks for your professionalism!

In a nutshell, filming has been weird. I am not sure what it all means. Let’s start with Phaedra. Far from the rumored “leave of absence” Phaedra has been filming a good deal.  She’s filmed with Apollo in Chastain Park the day before she arrived late to Cynthia’s Essence party only to leave when she realized Apollo was there. That seems more and more like planned drama because contrary to before Apollo was sentenced and before RHOA filming began when the two love birds were all touring the country separately, they are currently both back in the house, and filmed a scene in the house yesterday. Phaedra has also filmed with Cynthia that I know of. Fun Phaedra fact: Phaedra lives in a Cul de Sac in a nice part of Atlanta proper. It’s not a gated community but it is rather secured and has a low crime rate if you take Apollo out of the equation. Last week,  Phaedra from some reason decided she wanted to fence the front yard and add an electronic keypad entry gate for the driveway. The neighbors were a bit perplexed by that decision. They were even more confused when the work crew failed to locate the water and electric before digging. And they hit the water line. To make matters worse, no one was home when this happened.
