James Radford, Jr., the attorney for author Angela Stanton, has asked a Gwinnett County judge to rule in favor of his client in the matter of Phaedra C. Parks vs. Angela Stanton. Radford cites the fact that Parks, an attorney herself, has refused to sit for a deposition to show evidence that Stanton defamed the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member in her book, Lies of a Real Housewife.
Radford is also asking the court to order Parks to pay Stanton’s attorney’s fees.

This letter, sent to rapper Ludacris’ attorney in August, landed in my email Inbox this morning. The letter was sent by a well-connected insider who begged to remain anonymous.
As you know, rap artist Chris “Ludacris” Bridges accidentally knocked up a longtime friend during a moment of unbridled passion. According to court documents obtained by Hiphopenquirer.com, the woman, Tamika Fuller, demanded that Ludacris buy her a luxury vehicle — and pay her attorney’s retainer fee — or she was spilling the TEA about their baby.
