What people see is what it is. I don’t really know Apollo. Apollo felt like he was defending his wife [regarding] the UPTOWN article that I did . . . the article wasn’t about them. The article was about how I felt about what my wife said and what people were saying about, you know, UPTOWN Restaurant and Lounge and that she gave me money to do it and I wanted to set the record straight by saying yes she made a contribution but I didn’t take her wallet to do it.
The Real Problem With Sheree:
She talks about everybody f****ed up all the time, especially my wife. She said my wife is spineless. She said my wife has no backbone. She said my wife follows around NeNe like some little puppy. She says a lot of really f****ed up things and my wife is too much of a classy chick to even go in on that so, when they ask me what I think, because me and my wife is one, I’m gone say how I feel. She thinks she’s cute but I don’t think she’s cute. If she thinks she’s cute, then that’s on her. It’s like when I watched [the show Sunday] night and she said ‘well, I know I’m cute’ and my answer was ‘really.’ It didn’t change how I feel. But all of that was at the top of the year. I just saw Sheree recently after the Soul Train Awards. She came through to bar One and maybe she forgave me or I forgave her. We don’t know. Let’s see what happens next.
On Nene and Her Mouth:
When I say NeNe is loud, it’s because NeNe got a big ass mouth but I love her. I love her to death. I love her. She’s cool as hell. She’s the realest as far as I’m concerned.
On Why Kim Is Crazy:
When I say Kim is crazy as hell, it’s because her mouth is so reckless. All kinds of s**t come out of her mouth. I don’t think they have ever shot Kim without beeping, without beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep, because she talks crazy. That’s how she talks.
On The Marriage Drama Involving Cynthia’s Mother and Sister:
I was caught off guard. I didn’t see that coming. I love Barbara. I think Cynthia’s mother is a beautiful lady. I didn’t know that they had certain concerns. I had never been in that position before. It made me a little bit more humble. It makes me a little more determined. I used that fuel to light my fire, to bounce right back, to open BarOne. I could crash and burn. I know everybody would like to see that but that’s not who I am. I’m a man’s man and I don’t have no problem repping that to the fullest.
Peter On His Love For His Wife Cynthia and Why People Can’t Stand It:
My wife is not just beautiful. She’s extremely beautiful. I’m not just talking about the exterior and what everybody sees. I’m talking about her make-up–her honesty, her softness, her caring ways. She’s an angel. I’m a lucky man. I’m the luckiest man on the planet. I will do nothing ever to disappoint her. I live for her. When a man and a woman say I do in front of God and family and friends they’re basically saying it’s a ride-or-die type situation. I’m old school so that’s the way I think and I believe that’s the way my wife thinks also… We’re in love with each other and a lot of people hate that because they might not have that in their life. But guess what? That’s their f***ing problem.
Peter also talked about why his UPTOWN Bar failed last year. “UPTOWN only failed for the fact that everything in America failed. Every banking institution failed. Okay. Every mortgage company failed. There wasn’t even no dancing in Atlanta during those months so people wasn’t coming out of their house. Everybody was scared,” said Peter adding that his new place BarOne will succeed because it’s “a small venue” and “the price point is lower.”
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON PETER’S LATEST INTERVIEW? SHOULD HE ZIP IT OR IS HE JUST BEING HONEST?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta the husbands brought the catty as the wives instigated from afar. Kim had a wedding prequel in the form of her baby shower and Sheree started work on her new job building her dream house and I’m counting down the minutes until foreclosure.
Sheree arrives at the building site for Chateau Sheree to watch the demo of the original house built in 1975, practically before she was born. Really Sheree? Someone needs to check you, Boo! BTW: nice “workboots.” Poor Sheree tells us that overseeing the construction of her new home is so much work it’s like a another job – as if she needs one! Leaving all of us to wonder what exactly are Sheree’s other jobs? Being a Housewife? Divorce settlements? Sheree makes sure the contractor has her list of “necessities,” which include: a ballroom with skating rink, a DJ booth, a massage parlor and a library or liberry – even though she doesn’t read. Hopefully she can read the notices of foreclosure that I anticipate will be arriving shortly! Kidding, kidding… only sort of…

In a new interview, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Baileytalks about how she ended up on Housewives, what reality stardom has been like and what to expect this season! Sadly, she doesn’t really give anything good away.
Eight months after moving to Atlanta for her relationship with then boyfriend, Peter Thomas, Cynthia learned that Bravo was casting for a new Housewife. “People I knew had mentioned I should be on the show, and I was eventually approached because my name kept coming up as a candidate. I took a meeting, which led to another meeting, which led to a phone call with Bravo and a screen test.”
Cynthia says watching herself on TV during her first season was “a little mortifying.” “There’s no book on how to be on a reality show,” she confesses. “You just have to go through it. Peter and I decided the best thing to do was to put it out there – to be real. On one hand, I’m glad we put it all out there. On the other hand, I feel like we gave too much.” Is she referring to the total financial implosion that happened days before the wedding her mother and sister tried to cancel moments before she walked down the aisle?
“I think people really related to our troubles last year with this economy. I got so many letters from viewers who were losing their jobs, losing their houses, losing their cars. They were glad to see that people on TV have problems, too. It was really real. I can’t fake that kind of pressure,” Cynthia explains of last season’s issues the couple faced after Peter was forced to close Uptown.
This season Cynthia promises that, although she remains friends with out of control out-spoken co-star NeNe Leakes, she is “more opinionated” and branching out to form friendships with other ladies. “Last season, NeNe was my friend on the show, but this season I integrated with more than just NeNe, and I’m much more vocal.” Uh-oh… that means trouble!
She also formed strong friendships on the ladies’ cast trip to Africa! “We took an amazing trip there, and it’s one of my favorite things we shot this season,” she expresses. “I felt like I really bonded with each of the girls individually on the trip. We were stuck together for ten days in a Third World country, and it brought us together.”
“Our show offers something different; we’re organic,” she says of what makes RHOA Bravo’s most popular Housewives series. “It is what it is with us. We’re more real, and you’re going to get great moments and major train wrecks with us.”
In other RHOA news, as you all know Kim Zolciak is engaged! She is finally showing off the glamorous rock fiancé Kroy Biermann designed especially for her! While it’s not as big as her ring from Big Poppa, the 10k ring is nothing to laugh at. It’s gorgeous! Kim revealed her sparkler to the world via TwitPic just in time for her expected 11/11/11 nuptials! A photo of Kim’s ring is below.
Well, I can’t wait! Real Housewives of Atlanta premiers on Bravo, Sunday, November 6 (9/10c).
THOUGHTS ON CYNTHIA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU PREDICT TROUBLE BETWEEN HER AND NENE THIS SEASON? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SEASON FOUR OF RHOA? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF KIM’S RING?

And speaking of Cynthia, her family still hates her husband Peter!

But as it’s been reported, this appears to be a storyline solely for the show as the two have been photographed during filming — away from Bravo cameras — looking happy and cozy. But we’ll let you be the judge. The housewives also manage to take a break from all the drama to visit South Africa!
The RHOA season 4 trailer is below! The show returns Nov. 6 on Bravo at 10/9c.

According to the TalkingWithTami blog, which was on hand to snap photos at the event, The Bailey Agency offers an intense six-week course with Cynthia, exploring the many different facets of modeling such as etiquette, walking the catwalk, posing, photography, film production, make-up amongst other things.
If you recall, Peter, who was found not guilty this week of assaulting a former female employee, shut down his previous lounge/restaurant Uptown last year when it stopped doing well. No word yet on whether or not Cynthia also invested in this latest venture of Peter’s. And speaking of Cynthia, she recently opened up her own modeling agency called The Bailey Agency.
In other news, it’s now been weeks since Kim Zolciak gave birth to her baby boy Kroy Jagger and we have still yet to see photos of the little one. Many are now wondering why as Kim is not one to shy away from cameras, even selling releasing her sensual pregnancy photos to the tabloids.
Well it appears Kim is planning to wait a little bit before releasing her baby’s pics. “I’m going to go with a month or two. She’s figuring it out,” said her rep to the Wetpaint website when asked about the baby’s photos. The site adds that Kim has already sold the photo rights to an as-yet-unnamed magazine.

The gossip website MediaTakeOut broke the story offering no proof but the word of a source who told them Peter, husband of Cynthia Bailey, is currently going through a bench trial (a trial held before a judge sitting without a jury) for assaulting a former female employee named Tamela at his now closed Uptown Club.
While no major media outlets seem to have confirmed this news, Reality Tea did uncover two mugshots of Peter, both stemming from recent arrests for battery.
The first mugshot came from a 2008 arrest in which Peter was arrested for Simple Battery. He was released the same day after posting $1,000 bond. The second arrest came a year later on December 3, 2009 when he was once again arrested in Atlanta on two different charges – Simple Battery and Battery with visible harm. He was released the same day after posting $2,000 bond. It’s likely the later charge is the one he is on trial for.
The sources add that Peter will likely be convicted and locked up for a year. As of the moment, neither Peter or Cynthia have yet to respond to the story.
This newly uncovered arrest records might be one of the reasons Cynthia’s family was so against her wedding to Peter last year. If you recall, Cynthia’s mom and sister spent most of her wedding day crying and trying to talk her out of it.

UPDATE – Peter spoke to the Sister2Sister blog and acknowledged he was on trial on Monday but states he was found not guilty. He denies hitting his former female employee and states she was “acting up in his restaurant and throwing plates.” Peter states after asking her to leave, he returned about 30 minutes later and was accused of pushing her. Peter said she slipped and the former employees who testified on his behalf backed his story.
