EXCLUSIVE: Real Housewives of Atlanta Explode in Puerto Rico

Kenya at the beach in Puerto Rico!

ATTN: This is an independently sourced story EXCLUSIVE to Tamaratattles.com theft of this article will result in bad karma, Ebola virus, and syphilis. Wouldn’t it just be smarter to use a small portion with a clear link to this page as the source?

I managed to get in touch with Source who is in Puerto Rico at the moment.  All of the RHOA flew in yesterday for their girls trip for season seven. The weather may be hot but the fighting is even hotter. Already. On day one.

The premise of the trip is that new housewife, Demetria McKinney has a “concert” this week in San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Demetria is an actress and singer and has recently released a single, 100, to coincide with her stint on RHOA.  That said, I can’t find any publicity online for where exactly Demetria is singing.  I admit I didn’t try that hard because it really doesn’t matter.

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.

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

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

Phaedra Parks Speaks On Meeting Michael Brown’s Family in Ferguson

RHOA Phaedra Mike Brown Instagram

It seems like this blog has gotten very heavy on Phaedra Parks lately. Yesterday, Phaedra took to her Instagram to share pictures of herself with the family and her thoughts on the tragedy in St. Louis.

During my St. Louis visit, I had the pleasure of meeting #MichaelBrown’s mother Lesley McSpadden. Although, we come from different places & backgrounds, we are very much alike-We are both black women & mothers who deeply love our sons. Unfortunately, she is planning her son’s funeral while I struggle to make sure my sons never know her son’s fate. #fixitjesus #JusticeforMikeBrown #Ferguson #prayforpeace #prayforstlouis #StopPoliceBrutality

I thought I would share that with you as well as some updates on what is going on in St. Louis today as more facts come out on this case. Today, the name of the officer was released as well as some police report details. MSNBC is playing a loop of some security video from the nearby QT that appears to show Mike Brown shoplifting a large box of swisher sweets (cigarellos) valued at $48.99. The person believed to be Mike is shown, with his friend Dorian Johnson who is all over TV giving interviews, leaving the convenience store as the employee, or possibly the owner, attempts to stop him. That video shows Mike turning around and shoving the older man into some shelving and the man cowering. That same QT store was looted and burned to the ground in the resulting riots.

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

For the past four days, Phaedra Parks has been in St. Louis on a book tour for her ridiculous etiquette book on how to be a southern belle. While that is a ridiculous enough venture for Ms. Parks. It seems her stay in St. Louis has been extended to include a few extra appearances.  During her first signing on Saturday night at 5 p.m. there was officer involved shooting of a teenager in St. Louis.  The teen who was black was said to be approached by police officers around 5:30 p.m. and according to police the teens were uncooperative. However, many eye witnesses said the unarmed teens were compliant and follow all of the officers commands. An unnamed white police officer shot and killed on of the teens on the scene.

Since Saturday, there have been large protests and riots in St. Louis as everyone attempts to come to terms with the tragic death. There is no word on whether Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton have arrived in St. Louis yet. However, St. Louis County NAACP President Esther Haywood said in a statement “We are hurt to hear that yet another teenaged boy has been slaughtered by law enforcement especially in light of the recent death of Eric Garner in New York who was killed for selling cigarettes. We plan to do everything within our power to ensure that the Ferguson Police Department as well as the St. Louis County Police Department releases all details pertinent to the shooting.” 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

ATTENTION: Please do not steal my work. You are welcome to excerpt portions and use with clear links providing credit. Failure to follow basic website etiquette is known to cause gonorrhea, impotence and anal itch. We don’t want bad things to happen to you.

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.

Something in The Buttermilk Ain’t Clean

Phaedra Parks awaits her fans at the National Bar Association Annual Convention. Perhaps they are running late?

Phaedra Parks awaits her fans at the National Bar Association Annual Convention. Perhaps they are running late?

Y’all know I like to research things. The Internet can suck me down a rabbit hole and that has happened today. I doubt you guys will find this very interesting, but it is this or recap Leann & Eddie, or Don’t Be Tardy, or It’s All Relative and I am watching a marathon of Joan of Arcadia to sort of forget about all of those recaps looming. It’s a post about Phaedra, and not about Phaedra. It’s a bunch of questions and no answers. But I spent a lot of time researching it so I need y’all to either read all of this, or go read a couple other posts again because I am being slack today.

So once upon a time in 1925, the National Bar Association (NBA) is the nation’s oldest and largest association of African-American lawyers and judges was formed.  Last weekend,  the NBA held it’s 89th Annual Convention in downtown Atlanta.  Side note: this is more of a fraternal organization it is not “the bar association” that would be the American Bar Association.  At this national convention it appears more than one attendee won a Mayor Maynard Jackson Legacy Award.  Let’s try to figure out who won the awards, shall we?

Let’s Just Get the Elephant Out of the Room With Phaedra and Apollo

RHOA Nene teeth

Sorry this twitter pic is viral and I like it.

And the elephant is that second kid. Look. I didn’t cover Yolanda’s 13 year old getting a DUI, I didn’t cover a lot of things with kids. But it is clear to anyone with eyes that Phaedra’s second son… has some questionable parentage.  Remember how Apollo was trying to keep everything low key on the broadcast version of the birth, but Phaedra wanted a huge dramatic thing? And how Apollo wanted nothing to do with the new kid? And how Apollo said in Mexico he basically wished his wife would use a motherfucking CONDOM if she chose to stray? And how on all his interviews he talks about his son, SINGULAR?

Well in the ATL, the streets are not just talking about this they are screaming. Seriously, I’m a shut in, and I am totally aware. I’ve alluded to it before, but, now, there is some serious news ALLEGEDLY I must discuss with you guys. And they involve children. /SIGH

But before I do, I must give a disclaimer. Just like with Sheree, I am not stalking anyone. I never go any fucking place and if I do I make a HUGE deal about having to GO INTO THE WORLD on twitter. I’m quite content sitting here reporting shit.  The Chateau Sheree pics were all provided by other people until one day I had a doctor’s appointment in that part of town and there were people there working who I stopped to talk to and used my emergency (I’m a prepper what can I say) camera to take five whole pictures with total permission.
