Well, now, someone in comments about the “shocking” revelation that Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas are separated informed me that my friend over at SFTA interviewed Peter (via Facetime) at his request to clear up a few things. So I just checked that out (my day is so not going as planned) and he did claim that he was not going to tape for RHOA anymore. BUT, even ATLien didn’t buy what he was selling and reminded him he said the same thing last year. Peter has never been the compliant househusband Bravo expects. He reminds us that husbands don’t get paid and claims that he forced Bravo to start paying the husbands to show up for the reunion. He says he is happy with how the season ended with scenes of a happy marriage to his wife playing across our screens as we saw them frolicking in Jamaica and Cynthia attempted to give him a handjob on national TV. He bemoans his life as a “celebrity” and how everyone is always filming
his cheating him with phone cameras. Poor thing. He just doesn’t want to be on RHOA anymore, y’all.
He is furious with Porsha for claiming he is screwing every 19 year old in Atlanta. He says he has never been unfaithful to his wife. Perhaps he feels like if it happens in Charlotte it doesn’t really happen. He professes his undying love for Cynthia. Then he says, basically that his great love for her might allow him to film a scene or two next season. You know, if it will help her out. It’s clear this couple is done and it’s just a matter of time before Cynthia files if she has not already. But that was not what I found interesting about the interview at all.
THE BIG NEWS WAS….
While blasting Phaedra for seemingly no reason, Peter blurts out that he “talked to Apollo yesterday” and he feels sympathy for Apollo because, “he knows the reason why Apollo is where he is.” MMMMMHmmmmmm. What might that be Peter? IS there something you would like to share with the class? You seem really angry with Phaedra Parks. Peter says that Apollo made some bad decisions and he is paying for them now. He says when you come out of prison after doing six years for fraud no one will give you a job or trust you with money. So, sometimes you have to do what you have to do to get to where you need to be. That’s interesting. Don’t you find that interesting?
But it gets better. Peter says that Apollo is in prison “plotting” out his plans for when he gets out. I kept backing up to listen. It sounds like he said plotting but sometimes Peter mumbles. Plotting is an interesting word choice. And he used the word right after talking about Apollo getting divorce papers in jail. So what is Apollo plotting exactly?
Most of the interview was Peter talking out his brand and how his main focus is on “getting rich” and he discusses why he abandoned Bar One in Atlanta (building code issues) to open three bars in Charlotte. He referred to Kordell a bit when trashing Porsha. He mentioned him as an “investor” but it sounded to me like he’s not really an investor anymore. Peter was all over the place. But when it came to Apollo he said that when Apollo gets out of prison he wants to give him $100,000 so that he can get back on track get his life set up.
Marinate on that.
He’s a 55 year old man, who appears to be going through a divorce, has several children, and history of restaurants that somehow can’t keep their doors open, trying to open THREE bars in Charlotte, NC and when he gets rich the only thing he mentioned doing with his money is giving $100,000 (there’s a specific sum) to a felon newly released from prison. Please, can we take a moment to revisit Apollo’s indictment?
Personally, I think the final straw for Cynthia was the FEDS SHOWING UP AT HER HOUSE. Oh and I have new information on the car. The neighbors said at one point the was an old red thunderbird (they think) at the house that Apollo said belonged to a friend. It was there for about a week and they never saw it again. It would appear that was the car the FEDs came for.
Sounds like someone wants to divorce before any potential shit could hit the fan.
Also the photo above is of Peter’s apartment in Charlotte. I believe he Instagrammed it this week. Someone sent it to me with the question, “Does this look like someone coming back to Atlanta?”
P.S. Kordell Stewart just released an autobiography yesterday. It’s called TRUTH. I wonder if there is any in there…
