What's better than housewife has beens when it comes to rating gold on Watch What Happens Live? That's right…house-husbands! When two former Real Housewives of Atlanta stars appeared in Andy Cohen's clubhouse, the ladies garnered the talk show's second highest ratings for the year thus far…and no one even had to tug a wig!
Peter announced on twitter that he believes more people are watching because the men bicker as much as the wives. "The fact is that now the men on the show have a voice, one million more people watching the show than last year,that equal $$$$$ #holdontothat," he tweeted.
Do reality stars ever just fade off into obscurity or is it in their DNA to keep looking for the next show? I don't think I have a thick enough skin for a reality career, and after being embarrassed by my behavior on national television, I think the last thing I'd want to do was to find another way to look like an idiot in front of millions.
However, there is a reason I'm not a reality star, and there's a reason why they are so entertaining. No matter what, they don't give up on jumping from show to show, network to network to extend their already too long fifteen minutes of fame. It's now time for Cynthia Bailey's husband Peter Thomas to find the next big deal to keep him on our small screens. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is hoping to channel his inner Lisa Vanderpump!
Another day, another twelve Real Housewives of Atlanta legal dramas! This afternoon it's none other thanPeter Thomas! Peter is being sued by his landlord at Bar One in Atlanta for $100,000 in unpaid rent!
Peter's landlord filed papers today claiming that Peter hasn't paid rent since March of 2013 on Bar One. They also filed a separate suit for $29,000 in rent owed on Cynthia Bailey's Bailey Agency property!
Cynthia Bailey let her messy side show where Kandi Burruss' fiance was concerned and that led to a blowout argument between Cynthia, PeterThomas, Kandi, and Todd Tucker – which was further instigated by Cynthia's sister Malorie! I guess they share the gene for stirring up trouble!
In her Bravo blogCynthia admits things got carried away and she apologizes for her behavior.
Cynthia begins by explaining that she feels everyone was involved in the drama and that the entire group "looks back on that night with embarrassment and regret." Has she seen WWHL? Pretty sure Kenya doesn't!
"I admit that it was a little 'messy boots' for me to tell the ladies about my conversation with Natalie about the whole Todd opportunist thing. In Natalie's defense, I don't remember if she ever said the word opportunist, but I felt like it was implied," Cynthia explains. "She actually had a lot of very nice things to say about Todd as well, but I guess the negative will always outweigh the positive. It's actually kind of funny, because this whole conversation started off pretty harmless."
Cynthia Bailey and La La Anthony were the guests on tonight's Watch What Happens Live. As you can guess, most of the questions were for Cynthia, not only because of Apollo Nida's arrest bombshell, but also because of tonight's epically crazy episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Despite all the attention on RHOA, La La did get a chance to plug her new book, "The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex, and Happiness", which is releasing on Tuesday. I love La La and felt a little bad for her that most of her camera time was spent playing a game filled with questions about the Kardashians, since La La is good friends with Kim. I think La La's plenty interesting on her own, Andy. To her credit, she was a good sport about it.
Andy jumps right in to chat about the shocking arrest of Apollo and asks Cynthia if she has spoken to Phaedra and/or Apollo, "Not a whole lot. I mean, I read about it as well. I don't like to call people when I hear bad news. I like to call people when I hear good news. I think Peter did speak to Apollo earlier today and he said they were taking care of things. Hopefully everything will work out. "
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter 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 the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
