Phaedra and her mama might be one step away from breaking the bank over at Vibe. We told you Phaedra had filed a $30 million lawsuit against the company for publishing the story of Angela Stanton, a supposed old acquaintance of Phaedra’s whose written a tell-all seemingly airing out the pair’s dirty criminal laundry. But it seems there were some other stories in the book that got less attention but rubbed Phaedra’s mother, Regina Bell, the wrong way nonetheless and now she’s taking legal action too.

On top of claiming Phaedra used to flip cars and write fraudulent checks, Angela apparently accused Phaedra’s mother of “witch-doctory” and concocting potions to abort children. As ridiculous as that sounds, considering Mrs. Bell is a pastor I can see why she’s rushing to clear up these accusations. She’s reportedly demanding a retraction and $6 million in damages from Vibe, claiming that she is now publicly hated and has been ridiculed because of the book they published by Angela Stanton, Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil.

In the documents, Pastor Bell is said to claim to be a respected preacher who has ministered in her community for 33 years and certainly never created any potions or offered to help abort unborn children. A judge has yet to rule on the filing but I can only imagine how tight Vibe is holding it’s breath praying that the final decision will be in their favor. It’s probably not looking too good though on top of her daughter’s $30 million suit. When all is said and done, I think someone is going to have some new church hats for the pulpit. What do you think?
