Peter Thomas

In an all new interview with Essence.com, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas, beau of Cynthia Bailey, is speaking out on doing the show, what he thinks of the other housewives and of course Phaedra and her “clean” comment.

Peter, 50, opens up about his life and why he proposed to Cynthia, 43, despite her reservations about marriage. When it comes to Phaedra, Peter simply believes “she’s an idiot” when it comes to the comments she makes. Excerpts from Peter’s interview below -

ESSENCE.com: We don’t know that much about you. Do tell.
THOMAS:
I’m Jamaican-born, Brooklyn-raised, lived in Miami, had seven or eight nightclubs in South Beach for the past 20 years. I’m a New York, Miami dude, and I lived in London for a while. I get around, and Atlanta’s new to me. My parents live here.

ESSENCE.com: Cynthia hasn’t been shy about her reservations towards marriage. What did you think of that?
THOMAS:
I’ve heard about Cynthia Bailey for the last 21 years of my life. You know Russell Simmons proposed to her, she turned him down. Jayson Williams made a public half-time announcement on TV, she took the ring and gave it back. People that I know, even exes, talk so well about her. She’s an independent person and I love that about her. She likes to know that she has her own and I understand why because of her mom. I respect women who are like Cynthia because I’m not one of those guys who think men are superior to women. I used to date Nia Long and she was making like $800,000 a movie, and I was cool with it.

ESSENCE.com: What did you really think of Phaedra’s comments about wanting a “clean” man?
THOMAS:
Phaedra is like 36, 37 years old and word around town is she’s dated a couple of rappers she represented, so when she says “clean” she probably means someone that doesn’t have baggage so she doesn’t have to deal with mothers from previous relationships. My point to her was I’m a grown man and I have five kids, and there’s really nothing wrong with it. I would understand if she was like 22 and getting married but as old as she is saying that… the only reason Apollo is “clean” is because he’s been incarcerated for the last six years. She’s an idiot. That’s how I really feel about the statements that come out of her mouth.

ESSENCE.com: How do you feel about the other castmates?
THOMAS:
I don’t really know them enough. I’ve been around Sheree a few times and she’s always cordial. NeNe, she’s loud. I could be around NeNe, she could definitely be my homegirl. Kandi’s a really nice person, and Kim’s just crazy.

In other Atlanta news, Phaedra Parks gave a recent interview to a local GA news station – wjbf.com, during which she disucussed being a new mom and also touches on her portrayal on the Bravo hit show.

“Its very exciting, I don’t have anything to compare it to since it is my first child, but I adore my son. He’s wonderful, he’s really a sweet baby,” says Phaedra while also revealing that she had a high risk pregnancy and 3 days of labor.

When it comes to her “portrayal” on the show, Phaedra adds that “at the end of the day, it’s reality tv and so reality tv is about drama it’s about suspense.” Phaedra’s video interview is below -

Following a dramatic premiere episode, we are now onto week 2 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Episode 2 starts out with Kim Zolciak and her assistant Sweetie going for a beer run or walk or something. One hit wonder Pop star Kimmy feels she needs to look great, you know, considering she is a big pop star and all now. The two end their run by re-hydrating with a beer.

We see a very pregnant Phaedra at her workplace. The attorney is meeting up with a non-celebrity client of hers who was arrested for marijuana possession, and no, it is not Nene’s son Bryson, just in case you were wondering. “Unfortunately, 1 in 3 black men will be indicted for a felony and do some prison time. Instead of us punishing people who have obviously served their time, we really need to embrace them so that they don’t have to go back into crime,” states Phaedra, who is obviously doing her part by marrying an ex-con shortly after his release.

Cynthia BaileyAtlanta Housewives Nene Leakes

New Atlanta housewife Cynthia Bailey tied the knot this weekend, but of course it wouldn’t be a housewives wedding without any drama.

First, a publicist for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star sent out a press release to multiple media outlets informing them of her impending weekend nuptials.

While the press release seemed harmless enough, Bravo was none too happy. A publicist from Bravo contacted Access Atlanta, telling them that Cynthia had yet to be officially confirmed as a new housewife.

Cynthia’s publicist, after getting a stern call from Bravo, then contacted Access Atlanta as well wanting them to take down the wedding story because Cynthia “wasn’t supposed to reveal this life-changing plot line, per Bravo’s contractual arrangement.” It was obviously too late by this point as the story had spread. Interesting though to see how things work within the Bravo network.

In other news, the wedding did take place this weekend and the NYPost ended up posting a lil tidbit about a certain co-star acting like a diva.

According to the Post, Cynthia’s wedding to restaurateur Peter Thomas was held up for 45 minutes by Nene Leakes, who apparently barged into Cynthia’s bridal suite and demanded her hair and makeup be done.

The drama didn’t end there as Kim Zolciak then reportedly got into a tiff with her new boyfriend/blond boy toy, who “was checking out a hot redhead while puffing a cigar. Kim caught him in the act,” said a witness.

The Post reports all the Atlanta housewives were in attendance except Lisa Wu Hartwell. Not surprising considering the report that came out months ago revealing Lisa will be kicked off phased out of the show this season.

UPDATE: Nene Leakes is denying The NYPost story, posting the following on her twitter page -

“Why do these bloggers lie so much! I went 2 a wedding demanding hair & makeup! Now y would I do that? I have my own team! Thank u

I caused drama @ a wedding! Yup that’s what I do now. Go 2 weddings & cause drama

I know they cant help but talk about me! Who else they gone talk about?? TING TING”
