you. !

[l] A. Not presently, it's not accurate.
[2] Q. Okay.
[3] A. I have belonged to some of these
(4) organizations.
[5) Q,
Okay. Is there anything about this
[6] document that has some information about you that is
[7) inaccurate or false in some way that you can see?
[8] A. Not on just generally looking over it on a
[9] brief glance, no.
(10] Q. If you'll take a look at the front page,
[ll] there's a header. It says "Experience," and then
(12] there's three, I guess, employers or jobs listed below
[13] that. And the third down says you worked for GEICO
[14] from 1990 to 2000, is that correct?
[15] A. That is correct.
[16] a. And when you were working at GEICO, was
[17] that before you got your law degree or were you
[18] working at GEICO as a lawyer?
[19] A. I think I've got two questions. Could you
[20] break that up into two separate questions?
[21] a. Sure. Did you work at GEICO as a lawyer?
[22] A. Yes, sir.
{23] The next one up says "Attorney" with - l
[24) think that's the law firm of Bridges. Ormand & Faenza,

Q. Well, so GEICO on this document states you
worked there from 1990 to 2000, right? But then you
said you worked with the law firm from 1997 to 2000.

lost or some business opportunity you've lost as a
result of Ms. Stanton's statements, I'd like you to

suffered in terms of losing a client or anything to
that effect as a result of the alleged defamation?
A. I'm not sure.
Q. Okay. Are you aware of any evidence that
you have suffered any damages to your reputation or
economically as a result of the defamation?
A. I'm not sure.
Q. Okay. Well, now is the time to say it
because I've got to be able to identify it and locate
it and review it for trial if there's some evidence of
damages you're going to present. So I need to know
where that evidence is or what it is. And is your

A. No.
Q. During your marriage to Mr. Nida, do you
have any knowledge of what his sources of income were? I
A. He is not a party to this lawsuit, so I
don't believe that that is relevant
Q. I guess to the extent that's an objection,
your objection is noted for the record. I'll ask you
the question again.
During the time of your marriage to
Mr. Nida, did you have any awareness as to what his
sources of income were?
A. Asked and answered.
Q. Okay. So are you refusing to answer that
question?
A. Answered and answered.
Q. My question to you is: Are you refusing
to answer that question?

question?
A. That would be correct if it is regarding
him.
Q, Fine. And it is.
A. Okay.
Q. And, again, the reason you're refusing is
why?
MR. ANDREW: It's not relevant.
Q. (By Mr. Radford) Your attorney says
because it's not relevant. From your perspective
whafs the reason why you•re not answering?
A. Because it's not relevant.
Q. Would you agree with me that if you did j
know about your husband's criminal activities and his
income came from criminal activities, that would cut I
against your claim that Ms. Stanton's book is l
defamatory? Would you agree with that? ·
A. I would not agree with that.
Q. Okay. So you think your marriage to
someone and your knowledge that his source of income
is derived from criminal dealings during your
marriage, you think that has no relevance to the
question of whether someone might reasonably believe

Q. Yeah, gotcha. Trust me, I understand

C3l Q. Who?
(41 A. Drama.
cs1 Q. So you would discuss with Ms. Stanton your
£61 representation of Drama?
c11 A. No. But what I'm saying -- no. What I'm

c101 you know, random visits.
c111 Q. I don't know.
1121 A. Random visits.
Cl3l Q. Just to hang out?
[141 A. What I'm saying is, it wasn't like it was
c1s1 something that was an appointment. She might just
[161 drop in, drop by. It wasn't like it was scheduled.
[17) It might be a random pop-up. Oh, do you know where he

A. The one on Oregon Trail.

more than once? You just don't remember?
A. Yeah, it's possible.
Q. You don't dispute that she was there more
than once?
A. I can't say. You know, that's been a long

I know she wasn't there more than once?

recall, you know. I don't know if it was a social
visit. I don't know if it was him, with him. I mean,
that's 13 years ago.
Q. Okay. I imagine you have given some
thought to this, given you filed a lawsuit and that

I

grandmother, obviously, by dropping her off there.
I'd met her mother. And, you know, there could have I
·-·-·· .... -·---····------ ···-··-·------···- I

been other family members that I met. But, you know. '
I definitely met her mother on a couple of occasions. :
I'm sure.
Q. Okay. What were those occasions?
A. When l dropped her off to her grandmamma's !
house. !
Q. Okay. So on more than one occasion you 1
took Ms. Stanton fn your car to -
A. Yes.
Q. - her grandmother's home?
A. Uh-huh.
Q. And you went inside and met with the
members of her family?
A. I mean, yeah.
Q. Okay. Do you recall about how often that
happened?
A. I can't recall how often. I mean, but if I
someone invites me into their home and I'm giving them
1
!
a ride, I mean, I will oblige them.
Q. Okay. Why would you go inside if you were I
just dropping her off? ;
A. If someone invites you inside and says, j'
hey, meet my relatives --1 mean, I'm from the South.
That's very southern to do. !
Q. Okay. Do you recall ever having her

A. Never.
Q.
Are you sure about that?
A. I'm pretty sure about that.
MR. RADFORD: Okay. I want to put an
exhibit on the record, but let me do this for the
record. I'm going to mark this as Defendant's 4.
I'm going to show you the exhibit for the record,
but I have a color photo on my iPad here that

(Defendant's Exhibit 4 was marked for
identification.)
Q. (By Mr. Radford) Does this appear to be
the interior of an office that you maintained at any
point?
A. No.
Q. No. Do you recognize the person in the
doon.vayinthatphoto?
A. That looks like me, but that doesn't look
like an office I maintained.
Q. What about that little statue there on the
table in the foreground, does that look familiar to
you?
A. 1t doesn't, to be very honest to you •• or
with you.

Q. This isn't your office space at - I think
irs at 1069 Peachtree?
A. I had an upstairs office that definitely
was very small with just two chairs.
Q. I see one chair here.
A. It didn't have a couch.
Q. Okay. This looks like a lobby area. Was
there a lobby area in that office?
A. I mean, the office was pretty big. So
this could be somewhere in that office, but I don't
recall this. Just being very honest with you, I
don't.
Q. It looks like you're holding a child and
then there's a child in the foreground asleep on the
couch. Do you recognize those children?
A. I don't.
Q. You recognize those to be Ms. Stanton's
children, don't you?
A. l don't recognize those to be her
children.
Q. This is a photo of you and Ms. Stanton's
children in your office, isn't it?
A. I don't recognize them to be her children.

Do you recognize that to be part of some office space j
where you once maintained some space?
A. It could be; but, I mean, I don't - I
don't recognize it, just to- be- honest with you, but ft
could be. I don't recognize it, though.
Q. Do you dispute that that's an image taken
somewhere where you maintained office space?

recognize it as being a part of that office.
Q. Okay. And do you know who that little boy
is in the chair there?
A. I-do not.
Q. Okay. In fact, this is a photo of one of
Ms. Stanton's children in your office, isn't it?

her child.

[l] Q.
Okay. So your recollection is you didn't
[2}
think she had custody of any of her kids?
[3) A.
I don't recall her ever having custody of
[4]
any of them. I knew she had them. She had several
[5}
children, but I never recall her having custody of any
(6} of them.
[7] Q.
Well, how did you have any knowledge or
[8]
another of what her custody situation was?

[10) Q,
So your recollection is you never saw her

[13] Q.
What does that have to do with whether you
[14) saw her kids --
[15) A. I mean, I'm just telling you --
[161 Q. -- being pregnant?
[171 A. -- when I saw her, she was normally
[18) pregnant or had just had a baby or pregnant again.
[19) mean, I didn't see her like every day. But the times
[20) I did see her, she was pregnant or just had a baby.
[21) Q. I asked you if you saw her with her kids
[22) and you said -
(23) A. No.
[24) Q,
-· she was pregnant. She can be pregnant
[25) and have kids.
Page86
[lJ A. That means you're with child. When you're
c21 pregnant, you're with child, right? Correct?
C3J Q. So you're saying you saw her kids because
c 4 J you saw that she was pregnant?
[51 A. I'm not saying I saw them. I said she was
c 6] with child. If you're pregnant, you're with child.
171 Q. Okay. Who is Everett Tripodis?
ra1 A. As far as?
C9J Q. Is that someone who you know?
c101 A. Yes, I know him.

(131 Q, Okay. Did you know Mr. Tripodis priorto
c 14 J your marriage to your husband?
[151 A. I had seen him one time prior to being
[16] married to my husband.
[17l Q. And Mr. Tripodis has appeared on the Real
[181 Housewives television show with you, hasn't he?
[191 A. I can't say that for sure to be honest.
1201 He might have; he might not have.
c211 Q. Did Mr. Tripodis drive you to the hospital
c221 at some point when you were delivering one of your
£231 children?

Q. Okay.
A. He did not.

But I know he didn't actually drive me to the
hospital.

(81 Q. Okay. Do you dispute that he was on the
[91 show and depicted as having some relationship to you?

Cl91 someone so very close to me. I don't recall that.

c211 close to you. I said he was depicted as someone on
c221 the show by merit of his relationship to you, a cast
C23J member on the show.

Q. Okay. Well, why were you talking about
that?
A. I don't think I was talking about that.
think he was telling me about it.
Q. Okay. How did it come up?
A. I don't recall. That's been eons ago.
Q. You appeared as an attorney on behalf of
Ms. Stanton sometime in 2004 in a criminal matter. Do
you recall that?
A. Uh-huh, a probation revocation.
Q. ts that a yes for the court reporter?
A. Yes, a probation revocation.
Q. Are you sure? Do you think it may have
been a sentence modification?
A. Maybe a sentence modification. Excuse me.
I was wrong.
a. Okay. How did that representation come
into being?
A. She was pregnant and I think she had
gotten a new charge and she asked for some help and I
went. And she said I'm pregnant, I obviously need to
.get a modification so I can have my baby and not be in
prison again. And so I said, you know, what do you
need? And she said I need, you know, to ask if I can

have the sentence modified.
Q. Do you remember what court that was in?
A. Clayton County, but I can't remember,
maybe Clayton Superior.
a. Do you recall how you came into contact
with Ms. Stanton? Did she call you?
A. I'm sure she would have called or come by.
Q. Okay. Did she pay you for that?
A. I doubt it.
Q. You did it for free?
A. Yeah. I mean, I don't recall. But I'm
sure·· I mean, she's never really had money to pay.
Q. Why would you do that for free? I mean,
do you typically - why would you do that for free for
her?
A. If someone is pregnant and they obviously
are very pregnant at that time -- I think she was near
birth -- and she - a lot of the times -- she was in
and out of jail most of the time I've actually known
her. And, you know, to be very honest, I wanted to
help her because she was always into something or. you
know, battling with something, whether it be
pregnancy, some kind of trouble that she was having in
her personal life. And so it's not unlike me not to
be very helpful. And so if someone calls me, I will

have kids at that time. But I didn't want her to be ·
pregnant and in prison again.
Q. So you're saying from the time you first
met her through your client Drama through this 2004
time frame when you represented her in court, you knew j
throughout that time that she was always in some ktnd I
of trouble, is that right? .
A. Pretty much so.
Q. How did you know that?
A. Well, Drama would know. But she would I
I
always talk about she always had problems. I mean. I
she was a stripper, you know. So it was just -- she
obviously had issues. I
Q. Okay. And you spoke with her throughout j
that time about her issues? I
A. Well, not throughout. I can't say :
throughout that time. But, I mean, she would surface. i
go to jail somewhere, resurface. So she would pop up l
and in and out a lot of times. I mean, and her and ·
Drama were continuously on and off in their
relationship. They would be together. They wouldn't
be together. She would be pregnant. He wouldn't know !
if it was his child. She wouldn't know if it was his i
child. So it was always something contentious with !

know.
Okay. And you were privy to all this?
Some of it. I mean, pretty much so, you
j
I
a. I mean, you seem to have a pretty close
knowledge of everything that was going on between !
them.
A. Yeah. Oh, well. he was obviously my
client and -- yeah.
Q, Okay. And she spoke to you about these
issues? You and her spoke about these issues?
A. Sometimes. I mean, I don't know how much
she told me; but, I mean, sometimes we did.
Q. You represented Drama with respect to his
musical career, is that right?
A. Yes.
Q. You didn't do any crimina! representation
of him, did you?
A. ldid.
Q. You did, okay. What criminal matters did
you represent him on?
A. I don't know if I can reveal that.
Q. I'm not asking you to tell me any
privilege. I mean, you know, if you represent someone

[ll appearance. You say I'm representing. So that's not
c21 a privileged piece of information. So I'm asking you
c 3 l what sort of criminal matters did you represent him on
c 4 J as his attorney.
[SJ A. He had some felonies.
c 6J Q. Okay. He went to prison in 2001, do you
Pl remember that?
[SJ A. I think it was maybe -- yeah, maybe 2001.
C9J Q. Okay. Did you continue to represent him
c101 after that time?
c111 A. Yes, sir.
[121 Q. How long did you represent him after that
£13J time?
Cl4J A. I don't know if I can actually divulge
[lS) that
tl6J Q. I think you can. How long did you --
£171 A. May I speak to my attorney off the record
c1s1 for a second?
Cl9J MR. RADFORD: Sure.

c211 Q. (By Mr. Radford) So the question was:
[22] How long did your representation of Orama continue
[23J after he went to prison in 2001?
C24J A. Several years after.
c2s1 Q. Okay. And did you continue to represent
--- --··------ .... ---·
Page 102
[1] him with respect to music issues during that time or
[2] was it primarily with respect to criminal issues?
[3] A. Both.
(4) Q. And your recollection is with the sentence
[5] modification hearing that you represented Ms. Stanton
c 6] on in 2004 you just did that for free?
[7] A. It is 2004, so that's been over ten years
[8] ago now. I don't recall -- I mean, it was a very
[9] short hearing. It was a day, you know, 30, 40 minutes
[10] at most. So it wasn't an extensive representation or
[11] an extensive amount of work.
[12] Q. So you did it for free?
(13] A. More than likely, yes.
[14] Q. And that's because you - she wasn't just
(15] someone who was referred to you. She was someone who
[16] you had some kind of personal relationship with?
{17] A. She was dating my client.
(18] Q,
And your testimony is that was the extent
(19] of the relationship, the fact that she was dating your
(20] client?
(21] A. Pretty much so.
[22] Q. Okay. You also represented Ms. Stanton's
[23] mother in a cfaim related to an auto accident, is that
[24] right?
!25] A. I don't recall that.

C5J I don't remember it offhand, just to be honest.

A. Never.
Q. Okay. So if someone testified that they
were present when Ms. Stanton delivered some items to ,
you in a car in a parking lot, you would dispute that? II
A. lwould.
Q. Did you represent Mr. Cody in an auto
accident case? i

but I don't recall ever representing him. I mean, I j
possibly could have because I hadn't dealt with him ,
in -- you know, even dealt with her, you know, had any I
remote knowledge of them in over ten years. So if I
it's something ten years ago, I mean, I've had, you

c111 A. Oh, I think he tweeted me and I tweeted
c121 him back. But thafs been two or three years ago, if

Cl4l Q. Didn't you speak with him on the phone
[151 after that interaction?
(161 A. He called my office, if I'm not mistaken,
ll 7J or maybe even my cell phone. But I might have spoke
(181 to him one time.
Cl9J Q. What did y'all talk about?

c211 Angela was, you know, obviously harassing me.
c221 Q, That she was harassing you?
[231 A. Uh-huh.
C24J Q. And what did he tell you?
[251 A. That he knew she was harassing me. That's
Page 106
c1 J the gist of the conversation.
c21 Q. Like he was calling to comfort you about
[31 this or he was providing you some information?
C4l A. I don't remember him providing me any
[5J information. He was just saying he felt bad that she
c 6 l was harassing me because he knew that I had never done
[71 anything to her, you know, and had always tried to
cs1 help her anytime 1 could and he was like that was just
c 9 l horrible.
c101 Q. He was just calling you to tell you he
c111 felt bad?
c121 A. Yeah, pretty much so.
[13J Q. Okay. You also did some legal services or
£141 something for Ms. Stanton while she was in jail to
c1s1 help her attend her mother's funeral, is that right?
c16J A. I did, yes.
c111 Q. How did you get involved in that
.
1
U8J situation?
(191 A. I received a call. I don't know if it was
[20) from her sister-in-law or someone said her mom had
c211 died, and they wanted to try to see if I could help
c221 them get her to her mother's funeral. I mean, and I
[23] said, you know, anything I can do to help you because

Q. You mean you would attend?
£31 A. I would not not attend.
C4J Q. Okay. And this was just a matter of
(51 professional intrigue because you're interested in the
business of funerals? I .[6]
(7] A. No. But it's because I helped her get out ii
cs1 to go to the funeral. So I wanted to make sure that
[91 obviously she made it to the funeral because I had .
made all these calls so that she could be released to I
come to the funeral. So I wanted to make sure that ;
she mad.e it to the funeral. So I wanted to attend to I

Q. Okay. But what's this whole thing about
you being a mortician? Did you do this because you l
were interested from a professional standpoint or !

Cll legal work for me to help her assist her to get there.
121 But it was a matter of just respect. Obviously, I had
C31 made the calls to help her get out. And so out of
c 4 J respect, I would not obviously make the calls and not
C5l follow up to make sure that they actually brought her
C6J to the funeral.
[71 Q. Okay. Well, you first answered by saying
cs1 you're a mortician.
C9J A. I am.
1101 Q. Okay. So is that the reason why or this
u11 thing you just explained because you wanted to -
£121 A. I'm intrigu_ed by funerals. Yes, I do like
C13J them.
C14J Q. All right. And do you recall holding any
c1s1 of her children at the funeral?
C16J A. I don't recall that.
[1'7] Q. No, okay. Do you remember where the
c1s1 funeral was?
Cl9J A. I don't recall.
1201 Q. Did people there recognize you? Did you
1211 talk to anyone? That's two questions. Did you talk
c221 to anyone at the funeral?
[231 A. I mean, I don't recall. That's been years
C24J ago.

Q. Okay. And you just happened to see her
occasionally as a result of that?
C3l A. She was a young lady that obviously had 1
[4] lots of issues. Anytime she would call me for help or l
[51 whatever. I would attempt to help her. She was in and  
[6]
out of jail quite frequently. If she asked me a i
C7J question and I knew someone that could help her. I I
[8] would tell her. I would do that to anyone. You know, I
c 9 J now I'm a mother and I understand even more about how I

to be helpful to people. But at the end of the day, i
I'm a very helpful and gracious person. Whether I'm :
in a courtroom on a case that I haven't been paid for.
1
if there's a defendant in there, they need some
advice, and they say, hey, are you a lawyer, will you
help me, I will help them. That's just the type of
person I am.
Q. Okay. So you do a lot of pro bono regal
[181 work?
[191 A. I do, a lot.
c201 Q. Do you recall Ms. Stanton contacting you
1211 sometime after she got out of prison in 2005?
[22] A. I recall her contacting me saying she had
(231 a rap song.

Q. Yes. C4l
A. Okay. Well, when you attend a funeral, C5l
it's usually in a church. You usually speak to C6l
people. That's what people do. So it wouldn't be [7]
uncommon if you're at anyone's funeral to speak to C8l
people and be cordial. C9J
Q. Okay. So that's what you recall, just c101
chit-chat, sort of? c 11 J
A. I mean, that's been a long time ago, too; Ll2J
so it's not like I have some ingrained memory of it. C13J
Q. Were you at the funeral and the wake? [141

A. I don't see how it could. c201
Q. Okay. According to you, the extent of I c211

due to the fact that she was dating one of your I [231

A. Yes. I £251

I
her contacting me saying she wanted to do a book: and I
I gave her an agent's name, several agents' names. So I
she would call and ask me things all the time. I !
don't know if it was 2005. I don't know the year. i
But she would randomly call, hey, do you know someone I
that could help me with this. I've got a rap song. j
You know, I want to be a rapper now. You know, so i
that wasn't strange, you know. So I would say send it j
to me if you've got something that's good. Oh, I'm ,
working with this, you know. Do you know somebody I
that can help me with this? '
Q. Okay. Do you recall her contacting you,
stating that someone, a music producer, had raped her.
somebody named Johnnie Cabbell?
A. I do recall her contacting me.
Q. Did you talk to her about that?
A. Yes .
Q. Do you feeaH, accOfdffig to fler, why was
she contacting you? Did she state why she was
contacting you?
A. My recollection is that she wanted to try .
to get some money out of Johnnie, and I told her she 1
should obviously call the police and report the rape. .·

at that point. c 4 J I had no Interest in contacting her. She had
1
Q. Okay. After that point did you ever talk [SJ obviously made threats against my life and my baby's j
with Ms. Taylor. Ms. Goldie Taylor, about Ms. Stanton? C6l life and so I felt very threatened. i
A. Maybe. I mean, I know Goldie. We see [71 Q. What sort of threat did she make against I
each other on and off. But it's not like, you know, [8J your life? j
we talk to each other quite a bit. She lives in c 91 A. It was around Christmastime, something she
1
New York. So I don't really see her so much. So I c101 was going to stab me in the back and do all this stuff I
don't recall that we specifically had some c 11 J to me. And so I had went and took those threats down 1
conversation about Angela. c121 to the police department and filed a complaint. i
Q. Prior to Ms. Stanton actually releasing [131 Q. And you're referring to messages that were !
the book Lies of a Real Housewife, did you come to any [141 on Twitter?

c111 A. I mean. you know, we discuss a lot of 1111
c121 things. I mean -- c121
interactions Ms. Stanton would have had with your
husband by merit of you representing the boyfriend of
someone Ms. Stanton was dating, is that correct?
A. Huh?

Q. Okay.
A. That's how we met.
[131 Q. Okay. Does that complete your answer? [131

Cl5J Q, Okay. I guess you're aware that your [15J
[l6J husband gave an interview with a magazine called [161
[17] Sister 2 Sister in which he discussed Ms. Stanton and c111
Q. And you're not aware of any reason why
Mr. Nida would have been privy to that relationship, I
is that fair to say? ·
A. That doesn't really make -- say that again
because f'm --

[191 A. Yeah. I'm aware he gave an interview. I [191 or did you ever witness any event in which Mr. Nida, l

(51 question down, someone named Jamie, who I guess thars

[4]
C6J the interviewer, states: "How do you know Angela?"
c11 And he answers: "I know her from the past. This is
C8J exactly how it happened. I've had dispositions on

You don't dispute, I guess, that your
husband knew Ms. Stanton in addition to you knowing
her, correct?
A. He obviously says here he does know her.
a. Okay. Because you said you knew her
because she was the girlfriend or she was dating one
of your clients?
A. Uh-huh.
Q. Obviously, why would Mr. Nida -- your
husband, how would he know her? Do you know?
A. Well, you would need to ask him.

[l] with Mr. Nida with Ms. Stanton? [1]
[2] A. Did I ever discuss my relationship with. [2]
[3] Q. Mr. Nida.
[3]
[4] A. With my husband with Angela? [4]
[5] a. Correct.
[5]
[6] A. What do you mean, did I ever discuss my [6]
[7] relationship?
[7]
[8] a. Did you ever have any conversations with [8]
[9] Ms. Stanton about Mr. Nida? [9]
(10] A. I mean, I don't - I don't -- I don't [10]
[11) recall. Like, are you talking about something [111
[   ~ l speci.fic? [12]
[13) a. Well, I'm going to ask you a question; and [13]
[14] I'm not saying this to embarrass anybody because of [14]
[15] really specific detail. Did you ever tell Ms. Stanton [15]
[16] that Mr. Nida only had one testicle? [16]
[17] A. I don't believe so. [17)
[18) Q. Is that a fact, that he only has one [18)
[19] testicle? [19]
[20) A. That is not a fact. [20]
[21] Q. All right. Again, I'm not trying to -- [21]
[22] A. No, no, no, that's obviously not a fact. [22]
{23] The last time I saw it, he had two. {23]
[24] Q. Understood. When he says "I've had [24]
[25] dispositions on this throughout Phaedra's lawsuit," it [25)
Page 122
c11 sounds like he's trying to say he's had depositions on Ul
c21 this. Do you know if he has ever given any kind of -- c21
C3J A. No. He's never given a deposition, so I C3l
£41 don't -yeah. £41
C5l Q. Okay. cs1
C6J A. I don't know what he's talking about C6J
£71 there. £71
C8l Q. Do you know if he's ever given any kind of ceJ
£91 statement about Ms. Stanton and your claims against [91
c101 her? c101
c111 A. Not while I have been present. I mean, c111
c121 you know, so, obviously there was a much larger c121
[131 lawsuit that invotved the publisher of the book. And £131
[141 so I know that he was reached out to by my legal team, [141
[151 and so I -- but I wasn't privy to it. I wasn't there. [15]
(161 a. Okay. Do you know if he gave any kind of [161
[171 written or recorded statement as part of that? £171
c1e1 A. I don't believe so. c1e1
£191 Q. Okay. Who would know that? [19]
c201 A. Lin Wood, B.J. Bernstein. c201
c211 Q. Okay. c211
c221 A. Stacey Godfrey. c221
[23] Q. If you look at the third page of this [231
C24J exhibit at the very top, a statement that's attributed C24J
£251 to him, third line down. in this context he's talking C25J
about, I guess, a conversation between you and him !
after Ms. Stanton, I guess, allegedly contacted one of !
you all or one of you all contacted her. And he says, i
"I said to her," talking about you, "back then when I
this was happening, I want to say 201 O - 'Let's sit j
down and talk to her."' And then it sounds like he :
says that you said no. "That's how she is and that's
1
probably part of where we are to this point."
Do you recall having a conversation with j
him about Ms. Stanton around the time frame that he is l
talking about here or similar to what he's talking
!
about here?
A. I'm sure if he recalls a conversation, we
probably had one, but I don't -- I would never allow
someone to extort money out of me.
a. Okay.
A. So I would never, you know, entertain
someone who is trying to extort me.
Q. Well, I haven't seen any evidence that she
tried to extort you.
A. Okay.
I
I
Q. Do you have some evidence that she tried l
to extort you, that she said I won't write the book if
1
you pay me some money, anything like that? Do you
have any evidence of that?
i
? ~ 9 ~ 124 I
A. No, because I have never talked to her.
Q. Okay.
A. But I know obviously, you know, her
purpose in doing this is obviously to try to make
money off of my success and not her own hard work.
Q. But she didn't ever try to extort - she
didn't ever tell you that she wouldn't write the book
if you paid her some money or anything like that?
A. Because I never had a conversation with
her.
Q. So the answer to that question is no,
correct?
A. t never had the conversation with her.
Q. Okay. So, neither herself or through an
intermediary or through any form did she ever say that
she would withhold publishing a book if you paid her
money?
A. I can't say that because I don't know that
to be true; but, personally, I never spoke to her.
I
!
I
I
Q. Okay. Well, I mean, I think you're kind I
of talking around a question that has a simple answer I
to it. Are you aware of her either personally or I
through an intermediary or through any form whatsoever !
threatening you to pay her money in order to prevent j
her from publishing the book? :

A. I believe there was some talk about that. [1]
I mean, you know, I don't want to specifically say [2]
where I heard it from. I would have to obviously ask. (3]
But, I mean, yeah, I believe that she obviously wanted [4]
to extort money from me. [5]
Q. Well, you say there was talk of that. I [6]
mean, that's not a very good extortion attempt if I [7]
can't even get the message to the person who I'm [8]
trying to extort. Who told you this? [9]
A. I'll just leave it alone because I [10]
can't - I can't recall now what the exact [11]
conversation was. But I know obviously -- I don't [12]
know if maybe it was something my husband said. [13]
don't know. But I remember someone said, well, you [14]
know. 1 mean. it's always about money with her. {151
Q. So you heard someone speculate that she [16]
wanted some money? [17]
A. Yes, sir. [18)
Q. Okay. But you don't have any evidence or [19]
personal knowledge that she actually attempted to [20]
extort you for any money, correct? [21)
A. No, I don't believe so. [22]
Q. Okay. [23J
A. But if I locate some, I will obviously [24]
send it to you. [25]
Page 126
Q. I would imagine that's something that [ll
would have been front and center in this lawsuit. [21
You also sued VIBE magazine and Augustus [3J
Publishing as part of your defamation case. is that c 4 J
right? [SJ
A. That is correct. [6]
Q. Okay. And eventuafly you reached some 17 J
agreement with each of those parties to settle your c 81
claims against them, correct? C9J
A. That is correct. [lOJ
Q. Okay. And as part of that settlement, c111
each of them agreed to discontinue promotion of the c121
book, is that correct? [131
A. I don't believe that I can discuss that. [l4l
Q. Well, I'm going to ask you the question c1s1
again; and you can tell me you're refusing to answer. [16]
Ifs fine. But is it true that part of your agreement [l 7J
with them was that they would stop promoting the book? c 18 l
A. t .am refusing to answer that. [191
Q. Okay. c201
MR. ANDREW: Subject to a confidentiality c211
provision. r221
MR. ANDREW: Subject to a confidentiality [24 J
provision of the agreement. [25 J

THE WITNESS: Subject to the
confidentiality of the agreement.
Q. (By Mr. Radford) When did you reach your
agreement with them?
A. I was pregnant; so I guess it would have
been in 2013, 2012. I'll have to -- I mean --
Q. Was it June of 2013?
A. It was in the wintertime. I can't -- I
know -- I think it was cold outside, so I don't think
it was June.
Q. How do you remember that it was cold
outside?
A. Because I remember I had on stockings.
Q. Like at some sort of mediation you were
wearing stockings?
A. Uh-huh. Yes. sir.
Q. Okay. Do you know Ron Triplett?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Who is that?
A. He was security for Drama, and he traveled
on the road with us.
Q. Okay. Have you discussed your claims
against Ms. Stanton with Mr. Tripfett?
A. No.
Q. No, not at all?
i
·----····-· ·------··-·- ...... -- ..... I
Page 128 !
I
i
A. I mean, t'm sure - I don't see Ron. I t
have seen Ron a few times. But, I mean, I'm sure he's
1
aware of the lawsuit, obviously; but ifs not like we I
discuss it. l
Q. Did you talk with him on the phone !
recently about your claim with Ms. Stanton, about the :
litigation with Ms. Stanton?
A. I talked to Ron - I don't think it's - I
know it hasn't been super recently.
Q. Let's say within the last year.
A. Yeah. I know I spoke to him in the last
year. yeah.
Q. About the litigation with Ms. Stanton?
A. I don't think -- we've never had a
conversation specifically about the litigation. I'm i
sure he's obviously mentioned it because he knows I
about it, but it's not as though we just specifically !
talked about the litigation.
Q. You didn't contact him by phone sometime
within the last three or four months to discuss the
case against Ms. Stanton?
A. I might have contacted him because we both I
have children the same age and he's obviously very i
familiar with my relationship with Angela and how we I
mef and sometimes he has remembered things better than I

mean, obviously, you know, it's public record and you
can obviously get it from Smyrna.
Q. Sure. Does your attorney, for example,
have any of that?
A. Not that I know of, no.
Q. Okay.
A. I mean, it wasn't done through an
attorney. It was me getting up and going to the
police station.
Q. Okay. You've had some contact with
Ms. Stanton's daughter, is that correct?
A. Not really. She tweeted me.

Q. When did that happen?
A. I don't have an exact date. But she
tweeted me, and I tweeted her back, you know, because
she's -you know, she said Angela threatened to kill
her or something.
Q. Okay.
A. And so, you know, I told her, obviously, I
don't think, you know, she would obviously

hopefully you wouldn't hurt your own child.
Q. Okay. Was all your correspondence with
her through Twitter or did you ever speak with her on
the phone?
A. I think it was through Twitter. I don't
think I ever talked to her on the phone.
Q. Did you ever send her any e

mails?
A. l don't recall an e-mail .from her. I
mean, I only, you know, spoke to her maybe, I guess,
that once or twice. It wasn't like I have a
relationship with her or anything like that.
a. In Ms. Stanton's deposition you all
produced what appeared to be text messages between
Ms. Stanton and her daughter. How did you come into
possession of those?
A. I don't know if -- I don't know if she
sent them to me on a direct message or -- I don't

Did you have any knowledge as to her --
whether she's good academically or --
A. I have no --
Q. -- a person of good character?
A. I don't. I don't know.
Q.
On what basis would you write her a letter
of recommendation to law school?
A. I mean, she wants to go to law school.
I'm a lawyer. Obviously, I would try to help her out.
Q,
You would recommend her?
A. Yeah, if she asked.
Q. On what basis? If you have no knowledge
of her-
A. On the basis that she's asking for
assistance.
Q. And so the letter would just say I'm a
lawyer, I hereby recommend this person? I mean. would
you make up something that you knew about her?
A. I would not make up anything.
a. Okay. Why would you offer to write her a
letter of recommendation?
A. Why wouldn't I?
a. Well, you don't know her.
A. Well, she wants to go to a law school that
I'm very familiar with and so --
Page 146
Q. Okay. And so just anyone off the street
you would recommend to a law school?
A. If you came to me and you asked me and you
were sincere in your attempt, saying, hey, I want to
be a lawyer, you know -- and she did tell me that she
graduated from some school or, you know, with high
[71 accolades -- and you need a letter of recommendation,
C8l obviously, it's no skin off my back to help somebody.

someone of bad character to practice law, would you?
A. Well, I don't think she's of bad
character.
Q. But you don't know, do you?
A. Well, she said she graduated with honors.
But is this deposition about her or about your client?
a. Well, it's about evidence in this case and
c 17 J how you attained that evidence and whether you offered
{l.81 someone a benefit in exchange for --
