Life Beyond These Walls

The stories contained are from incarcerated women of different races, ages, and crimes all boldly sharing their path to prison. From crimes as petty as theft to crimes as serious as capital murder.

Life of a Real Housewife

Her story begins at the tender age of five years old when Angela Stanton was sexually abused. She takes us into her survival mode on the streets, and adjustments she had to make in her home life. The author shares experiences of her teen years, growing up in Buffalo, NY. She leads us on a short stay as a young girl in Greensboro, NC. The author, rapper, wife, and mother, guides us through her struggles into her early adult years in Hotlanta. By fate, she lives a hustler’s life of crime with none other than Real Housewives of Atlanta’s own, Phaedra Parks.

Dismissed with Prejudice

The sequel to Angela Stanton’s #1 bestselling memoir Life Of Real Housewife (formerly Lies of a Real Housewife), which opened the floodgates to reveal explicit details of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Phaedra Parks’ role in numerous complex criminal schemes while functioning as an Atlanta lawyer. Park's denial of these allegations led to a 30 million dollar lawsuit against Stanton and the publisher of Lies for defamation. Witness the fall from grace of a self-described “southern belle.” When her lies leave her in paralysis, and she is unable to generate any more excuses to cover up her duplicitous life. What follows is the discovery that the only solution to the quagmire is to face the cold, hard facts.
