Phaedra Parks was NOT happy to hear that Kandi and Todd Tucker were spreading the story that she didn’t pay up for production on her work out DVD. This week on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Phaedra and Todd sat down and talked about the matter like adults, leaving fans wondering if they had squashed the problem and moved on.
As we reported today, Kandi took to social media and gave her side of the story on what really happened with Todd not receiving payment for his work on the DVD, so of course Phaedra wanted to share her thoughts as well. She took to her Bravo blog this week and explained her version of “work-out-DVD-gate” in hopes to clear her name, and give us a better understanding of why Todd didn’t receive that final payment!
The issue of me owing money to Todd Tucker for production of a prenatal workout video has gotten completely misrepresented and needlessly become the source of harsh feelings. Let me set the record straight for those who lack the necessary rudiments. First of all, this business matter is between TTucker Productions and Nida Fitness. Nida Fitness is co-owned by me and my husband. Nida Fitness hired TTucker Productions to produce a prenatal fitness video. Post-production on the video was never completed and therefore the final payment was not made. The project has been in limbo. It is disconcerting to see that Todd opted to discuss the matter with everyone, except the business owners of Nida Fitness; thereby turning this business matter into a personal attack and assault on my character. After I became aware that this matter was circulating the rumor mill, as a professional businesswoman, I invited Todd to come to my office to discuss. In good faith, I wrote him a check for half of the outstanding balance. Presently, I am still waiting on the final cut. Upon receipt of a commercially acceptable, finished product, I will cut the final check. Everybody knows that the final payment follows the final deliverable.
This situation is so tough, how do you even pick a side? While it’s understandable that it would be very uncomfortable for Todd to discuss money with Apollo before he left for prison, it seems unfair that this whole thing fell of Phaedra. Being the company is called “Nida Fitness,” it’s obvious that Apollo was VERY much involved in this project. I’m glad that Phaedra paid Todd some of the money she owes him, and it was very smart that she didn’t pay the whole thing if she doesn’t have the finished product. This is a clear case of “he said, she said,” and it’s unfortunate that it has contributed to the deteriorating relationship between Phaedra and Kandi. Either way, I’m sure things are not better, given Todd has not been paid in full! Hey, There’s always the reunion!
What did you think of what Phaedra had to say? Whose wide are you on Phaedra or Todd? Do you think some of the blame should be on Apollo for lack of payment? Why do you think Phaedra hasn’t received the final copy of the DVD?
