Angela Stanton Speaks Out On Phaedra Parks’ Husband Apollo Nida’s Arrest!


Its been buzzing all over the blogs about the arrest of Real Housewives Of Atlanta star Phaedra Park’s husband Apollo Nida.

The 35-year-old reality star surrendered himself to the US Marshals on Thursday, January 23rd on federal charges of bank fraud, embezzlement, credit card fraud and identity theft.

Now that the crimes are coming to light, Angela Stanton the author of the book ‘Lies Of A Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame The Devil’ is speaking out about the arrest and shares that she is looking for a media outlet to share some more of her insight into the matter. She writes:

“In 2012, I released my personal memoir, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil. In the book, I detailed the struggles I faced as a young woman drawn to the temptations of crime and the false glamour it affords. I alone am responsible for the mistakes I made as a young woman. Yet, I have felt a certain sense of anger toward the people who used me during that period of my life. Certain individuals found me at a time when I was vulnerable and searching for friendship, and used those traits to lure me into doing their bidding.”

Angela isn’t shocked by the arrest, but she’s sad about it all. “I read with sadness the news that Phaedra Parks’ husband, Apollo Nida, was arrested for alleged schemes that are remarkably similar to those that lured me years ago. I was troubled to learn that the alleged crimes involved the use of a vulnerable woman to carry out the schemes. The story is all too familiar to me. I sincerely hope that Ms. Parks has not been part of his alleged crimes. I hope that she, like I, learned from her mistakes.”

She also addressed the $30 million lawsuit that Phaedra filed against her in response to her tell-all.

“Although tragic, the news, of Apollo’s arrest has been vindicating for me.Since I published my book, Phaedra Parks has used her wealth and influence against my publisher, and threatened them with years of expensive litigation if they did not cease publication of my book. As a result, I lost nearly all my royalties I was owed. Ms. parks used her influence in media the media to discredit my story and smear my name, casting me as a delusional liar on pages of popular blogs. After going to prison, and losing everything, my story was all I had left and she took that from me.”

In more Apollo news, the reality star has to turn over his passport, surrender all firearms, he is to report regularly to to his probation officer and refrain from drinking alcohol. Apollo is ordered to find a job, because appearing on RHOA is not enough. He is also not suppose to leave the Atlanta area without an approval. Any violations to those terms, may result in the immediate issuance of a warrant for arrest and could possibly result in a term of imprisonment.
