I admit I'm a former Real Housewives of Atlanta viewer. Fortunately, as my taste in television has matured and reality tv has digressed to scripted fodder I haven't had time to watch the last several seasons. But I picked up this book because I read that Stanton goes into detail about criminal enterprises masterminded by RHOA's Phaedra Parks. It never ceases to amaze me how so many shady characters find their way to reality tv.
Stanton does a great job of detailing the scams and I could see how she would feel like it was easy money with such a prominent Atlanta attorney on her side. But it's clear that this was not Parks' first time at the rodeo and Stanton was no more than a patsy. Once I read about her going to get the fake ID in Maryland, I knew she would be the only one taking the fall. Admittedly I had to put the book down for a while because I just could not handle reading all the sexual abuse she survived. As Miss Sophia said in The Color Purple "a girl child ain't safe in a world full of men". I wouldn't recommend this for the book club, but it was definitely worth a read if you wanted to get another view of your favorite housewife. Phaedra better be glad there's a statute of limitations.

A decent story about white collar crimes against the author Angela and Phedra Parks of Housewives of Atlanta.
