It’s hard to say. On Friday, October 10, State Judge Carla E. Brown issued a court order requiring Phaedra Parks to sit for a second deposition with Angela Stanton’s Lawyer, James Radford. As we all know, Phaedra has been gadding about the country under the guise of a book tour in recent days. The following Monday, Phaedra jetted off to LA to film the Ellen show on Tuesday and hawk her book from the pulpit of some church on Wednesday. On Thursday she was in NYC with Ayden trying to take him to meet Andy Cohen in his office. It looks like that happened last Friday. She appeared to be in NYC to appear on Dr. OZ.
My reading of the court order indicates she had ten days, not ten business days so today is the big day.
This morning someone sent me this statement from Angela Stanton on her Facebook page. I cannot find it myself, but I am Facebook impaired. Here is what the screenshot said, “Getting ready for a long, drawn out day with lawyers, court reporters and stenographers…some people will never learn until it’s too late. I actually feel sorry for those who go out of their way to harm you & don’t realize how much they are harming themselves in the process.”
So clearly, Angela is headed back to the courtroom today, presumably to sit through another deposition. You can read excerpts from the first one here. According to the neighborhood sources, this morning a stylist and makeup person arrived at Phaedra’s the film crew (or the circus as the neighbors call it) did not show up. Phaedra’s car is still there but she could have been picked up by someone. Contrary to popular belief the neighbor are not sitting at the window with binoculars all day, but they do notice the constant traffic and parking in the middle of the cul-de-sac etc, as their kids like to play outside.
So it is unclear if Phaedra is getting ready to film something for RHOA or if she met the court’s deadline. I’ll keep my eye on the case and let you know when I hear something.
I wonder if she fails to comply with the order, it her side of the case will be thrown out. If it is, a summary judgment in Angela’s case might just be a possibility. Could the end of this ridiculous case actually be in sight? I’ll believe it when I see it.
UPDATED: Ms. Parks sat for a depo on the last day. But not after having a stylist and makeup artist show up… So is this part of her RHOA storyline? Is she exploiting Angela for a storyline? Did she actually SAY ANYTHING this time? We will never know because she was supposed to disclose her settlement with Vibe which is under a confidentiality agreement. And that got the depo sealed, HOWEVER with the arrival of Shun Melson (or some other stylist) courtesy of Bravo…. Also, Angela herself tends to spill things and she was there for the depo. Is she not allowed to tell us? She is the defendant and it would seem like she has the first amendment right to let us know…
