Now comes a report that Peter filed for bankruptcy and was borrowing money, again, from wife Cynthia Bailey to keep his business afloat. A report reveals that in 2013, Peter, via BarOne, filed for bankruptcy owing over $322,000k to various creditors including the IRS and his wife! At that time Peter claimed BarOne’s assets were only $61,000k.
According to documents, Bar One filed for Chapter 11, which would expunge their debts. Listed as creditors are $32,000 owed to the IRS, $118,000 to the State of Georgia for taxes, a slew of other debts, and a whopping $60,000 owed to Peter, himself, for personal monies he investing in the business and was using to cover its operating costs.
On Sunday, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin hosted the Second Annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon at her home in Southampton. The event raised money for the Samual Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.
When asked why she organizes the event, Jill shared, “It’s a very complicated event in the sense that there’s no one reason that I do it. I do it because I want to give stuff to my friends, I do it because I want to raise awareness for charity, and I do it because I want to have a good time.” I will volunteer as tribute if Jill wants to give me free stuff. 😉 Check out more pictures below.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta'sPeter Thomas was dropping quite a few secrets earlier this week from the red carpet of the Debra Lee PRE dinner, when he spoke to Madame Noire. During his red carpet interview he talked about a RHOA spin-off, the latest on his costar ApolloNida and his brand new Bar One.
Peter Thomas has made no secret of his dreams of having a RHOA spin-off following the guys from Atlanta — Real House Husbands of Atlanta. Although Bravo — or any other network for that matter — has made no announcement, Peter seems to confirm that the show is a go during his interview.
Could be wishful thinking on his part, but a spin-off may be just what the Dr. ordered if rumors that his wife Cynthia Bailey has been axed. But is that the spin-off he is talking about? Because there have been some other spin-off rumors…
Peter Thomas makes no secret that he feels his charming personality is a major asset to Real Housewives of Atlanta. But he is more than just a pretty face, he reveals his savvy business persona, his long-standing hustle as an industry player, and why featuring positive black relationships on television is so vital.
In a new interview, Peter talks filming RHOA season 6 (yes, Cynthia Baileywill return) and makes some surprising announcements about his new business partner – and he also slams fellow Atlanta reality shows!
“Peter Thomas was Peter Thomas before the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Reality TV didn’t make Cynthia Bailey or Peter Thomas like some of the other people on our show. We were doing big shit before this," Peter quips to Uptown Magazine. "I am certainly not new to the entertainment industry and people in the industry knew me well before my wife became a Real Housewife.” Peter worked behind the scenes in the music and entertainment industry with several big-name players.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
Above:Gretchen Rossi tweeted, "All I wanted after this weekend's fashion show (wearing a bikini in front of 3,000 people) was ice cream! So Slade Smiley found me an ice cream store and I had my favorite mint chocolate chip!"
Unfortunately Peter's portions of The Husbands Revealed paled in comparison to Apollo "Loose Lips" Nida's marital revelations! The sit-down with the hubbies echoed that unfortunate scene in Mexico where they all sit around smoking cigars and taking shots – except this timeKenya Moore didn't crash. However, she was a hot topic of conversation!
Apollo arrives at the Bar One gathering in sunglasses. "I wear my sunglasses at night…" and the reason – his wife Phaedra Parks SLAPPED HIM. Then she embalmed his face and stuck in a stake in the front yard American Horror Story style! Oh wait, whoops – this is only Bravo. So boring!
Is it true? Has the day really come? Can I finally stop talking about the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion? I mean, how many hours of this three-ring circus have we been subjected to? What was last night hour 475? I chugged a 5 Hour Energy drink vodka soda and settled in for two hours of she-said/she-said-you're dumb-annnnd now here comes the husbands! Oh and the husbands, they sure showed up. Or at least Apollo Nida did. He was gunning for Kenya Moore's title as Queen of the Krazies!
Of all the things that happened last night it was the deafening silence of Kenya in the wake of Phaedra Parks' atomic bomb of verbal destruction. At some point, Kenya, realizing she had not a friend in the eaves, gave up. She just resorted to the silent game, but it was because she was trying not to cry.
Kenya can match any of these broads with her outlandishness, wild accusations, and sheer commitment to getting the job done. NeNe Leakes is easy – she's all loud buffoonery and nebulous threats. Kandi Burruss is just gonna say her bit – loudly – and then get teary eyed, but nobody hates Kandi enough to truly come for her. Cynthia Bailey perpetually wears an expression that says, 'Please don't kick me – I'm already down!" there's no satisfaction in gunning for her. And Porsha Stewart, well, she just gets louder and wilder and self-destructs on a comical level. But Phaedra… Phaedra does not shake.
