I told y’all when that bogus book came out that I didn’t believe a word of it… and guess what? Neither does the rest of the world.
The electronic book to a drastic nosedive to #15030 on Amazon’s Kindle sellers list after word of mouth spread about the poorly written e-book’s contents and it looks like people have decided to save their ten bux.
Vibe, who happens to be the publisher of Stanton’s “memoirs,” is also covering their “A”zzes by issuing “clarification” on incorrect statements made by Stanton in that video taped infomercial that’s been circulating to garner sales for the book.
In a statement released on their site, Vibe issued the following “clarification” statement regarding Staton’s book, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil:
VIBE would like to state a clarification on the matter regarding the video interview released on VIBE.com on March 15th, 2012. In the first clip (of three), Ms. Stanton refers to an individual involved in the criminal scheme described in the book, as the brother of Apollo [Phaedra’s husband].
It appears as if Everett and Apollo are not related by blood and Ms. Stanton refers to Everett as Apollo’s “street brother” in her book.
The statements made in the video clips were made by Ms. Stanton in a figurative manner and not in literal terms.
I suspect that statement is just the first of many “clarifications” to come regarding Stanton’s book.
Tamara Tattles also details quite a few inconsistencies involving Stanton’s memoirs and notes that I’m not the only one Stanton has snubbed for an interview….
Meanwhile, Hiphopenquirer.com is reporting that Stanton backed out of their interview after she requested a list of questions up front.
This seems counter-productive to getting the truth out there, doesn’t it?
HHE also called the music executive that Stanton claims raped her in the book. He claims that Stanton has in fact tried to extort her in this way in the past for money. In the book Stanton says she was afraid to press charges, but now apparently she feels comfortable making a public accusation now. READ MORE
Fans are divided about Stanton’s statements and I’ve caught a ton of flack for standing my ground or being “biased” as y’all call it. But I agree with Stanton on at least one point…. the TRUTH will reveal itself eventually.
