Phaedra Parks sued a woman last year for defamation when the author of the book, a stripper named Angela Stanton, said that Phaedra was involved in criminal activities with Phaedra's husband Apollo Nida. Here is where it gets sticky and why Phaedra should never have filed the suit. If you want to know whether Phaedra knew about the criminal activity you have to ask her. If she says no she didn't know, she doesn't want to be faced with perjury charges later if the feds do indict her on some type of charge. If she says she did know, then the feds are going to want to ask her what she knew and if she took part. Two months ago Phaedra sat for a deposition but refused to talk about her husband. The whole point of her lawsuit was to show she wasn't involved in her husband's criminal activities so you can't just ignore questions about your husband. She did say that her husband liked strip clubs and that the couple had not had sex in quite some time. The attorney for Stanton is going to court to get Phaedra to submit to another deposition where she will have to answer questions about her husband and a judge will most likely order her to answer which means she will probably end up settling the case before that new deposition date is set. There is no way she is going to answer any questions about Apollo under oath which is why she was an idiot for filing the suit in the first place.
