'Real Housewife's' Mother

Sues Over Baby-Killing

Witch Doctor Allegation

6/9/2012 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0609-phaedra-parks-regina-bell-gettyWitch doctors and the law -- leave it to the mother of Phaedra Parks ... from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... to bring the 2 together in a $6 MILLION defamation filed in Georgia.

Regina Bell (above right) filed the suit against a company called Vibe Holdings for its online book, "Lies of a Real Housewife: Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil" ... in which the author accuses Bell of "witch-doctory" and concocting potions to abort children.

In the docs, Bell says all of the accusations are BS ... claiming she has been a respected preacher in her community for 33 years, and there's no way in hell she ever created any potions, or offered to help abort unborn children.

Now Bell is demanding a retraction and $6 million in damages from Vibe -- saying she is publicly hated and ridiculed because of the book.

The filing comes on the heels of her daughter's $30 million suit against Vibe ... also claiming defamation due to the book.

A judge has yet to rule.

TMZ are you saying that Regina Bell is the mother of Phaedra Parks? You obviously don't watch the show.

Regina Bell Is not Phedra Parks mother. How do you people get away with making this stuff up. At least do your research.

This woman is most certainly not Phaedra's mother. If you were at all a fan of the show you would know this. This may be her name, but is certainly not her likeliness.

Regina Bell is not Phaedra Parks mother. Regina was a R&B singer for years as well as a minister. Phaedra's mother has been on the RHOA and she is a minister. Get your facts right before posting....

The picture above to the right is Regina Belle former R&B singer now Gospel singer, not Pastor Regina Bell Phaedra's mother. In fact the singer I don't think is that much older than Phaedra so she won't be to happy with your story calling her Phaedra's mother. And this is a stupid story anyway.

Uh, TMZ, might want to fix that pic before you end up with a lawsuit against you because that is not Phadra Park's mother. The pic posted is of the R&B turned gospel sensation Regina Bell. Phaedra's mother is much larger!

The singer Regina Bell (pictured) is not Phaedra Parks mother. This is the wrong woman in the picture.

Why hasn't this story been corrected or retracted? It is so inaccurate that it's laughable.

TMZ, you have the wrong Regina Bell pictured. The singer isn't the preacher. I'm amazed you didn't caught your error. The names are the same the people are not.

Famous singer Regina Bell is not Phaedra's mother. Even though Phaedra's mother IS named Regina Bell, it's not this Regina Bell. If you were an avid viewer of RHOA you would've known that.

FYI- that is singer Regina Bell, and she is not and I repeat not Phadera Parks mother. TMZ check your facts, before we seek legal counsel.
