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….
Dude, you fucked up.
When Apollo Nida was indicted for all of his felony fraud charges back in, January of 2014, Peter Thomas’ name was bantered around as being involved in the criminal activity online. So was Todd Tucker’s. To me that seemed like just a bunch of blogs trying to make the story related to the show. I mean Apollo was a known felon. Phaedra had a suspicious past. But Peter? Todd? Not likely.
This week Cynthia made a really odd blog comment that basically said that she had nothing to do with the situation where it came to pass that the FEDs came TO IMPOUND A CAR THEY HAD FOR “years.” I found that interesting and unimaginable considering where they lived. They live (or at least Cynthia does) in a townhome which basically has parking for two cars. I doubt they are even allowed to have a third vehicle not in the garage by the condo association. None of this made sense to me.
I’m still trying to work it out. So who wants to work it out with me, because Peter is looking guilty as sin to me.

On last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kandi Burruss stood in her garage and deliberately taped an episode about all the crap they have in there. She said that a lot of the crap including a pricey motorcycle and ATV belonged to Apollo Nida. It took me about ten seconds to say that the FEDs should be by to pick that up shortly.
A LOT OF THESE EXCLUSIVE APOLLO NIDA STORIES BEAR REVISITING TONIGHT
Today, TMZ is reporting that is exactly what is about to happen. According to their sources, the Feds went to court on Tuesday for the warrant to go pick them up from the Burruss-Tucker residence. Assuming he purchased the motorcycle and didn’t steal it, he paid about $15K for it, as for the ATV it retailed at about $8K. Whatever they can get from the reselling of the items will go toward the millions of dollars in restitution he owes the people he stole from including many Delta retirees.
The final regular episode is finally here! That means, what 122 more episodes of reunions and lost footage? At the end of tonight’s episode you will see a teaser for the reunion and all the ladies are in white dresses. Nene of course has a meltdown at the mention of her mother and has to be practically carried off by the shrink. Clearly, the problem with all of these women is their mamas didn’t hug them enough and they had to get attention elsewhere.
Peter and Cynthia are packing up Bar One. It’s sad to see it closing up. They take down the giant canvas of Cynthia to move to the new location on Auburn Avenue.
Peter takes Cynthia to see another rental property near the new bar. It’s for Peter’s Brew, his Jamaican coffee line. It’s cute, small and not very expensive. Cynthia is a bit pissy because her rented it without consulting her. Cynthia says they don’t need to be dividing their energy away from Bar One.
Then Apollo calls Peter’s cell phone. Apollo is for some reason calling Apollo to talk about visitation with the boys. Um, Why? Oh yeah. Storyline. Apollo thinks that he may be reassigned closer to Atlanta. That won’t happen.
Peter asks Apollo if he is aware Phaedra filed for divorce. It’s my understanding that she has NOT filed for divorce.
We are treated to a scene with Phaera making cookies with the boys. The exterior shots, at the very least were filmed after production with everyone else was over. I can tell this because the gray trim on the house is up. The family is all decked out in red. Phaedra hasn’t taken the kids to the jail because she says that there are special rules for kids and infants. I’ve notice a trend lately where children are “infants” for a very long time. Phaedra is full of excuses for not taking the boys to Kentucky. It’s too far. It’s too complicated. The kids are too little. What if one of them has to pee? There is no place to change Dylan’s diaper. They may resent having to visit their father in prison. Continue reading
Kandi has called in a stylist for a date with Todd. Normally, I would find this ridiculous, but this is Kandi we are talking about. Did you see what she wore in Manila? But this guy is NOT the stylist. He brings her some leopard crap. She needs to hire Shun Melson.
On the date he says he made the date because it is their therapy “homework.” And we are off to a bad start. Things continue to get worse. Todd asks her if she is ovulating. Kandi says she didn’t know if they would make it to their upcoming one year anniversary. And she answers his ovulation question by saying her period is about to start. Seriously. Sex toys, enemas and periods all in the first 20 minutes. Kandi asks if Todd still wants a baby. His show got a second season which is going to mean more time apart and the timing is bad. Kandi says they have an appointment with the fertility doctor. Todd wants to go to L.A. for a month and a half. Kandi says she doesn’t think they should go more than 2 weeks without seeing her. Todd wants Kandi to come to L.A. with him for the whole time.
So I was trying to get my work area set up to blog (AKA grabbing a snack, in this case literally popcorn) and I come in the room and I’m trying to figure out who this woman is Cynthia is talking to. It’s Noelle! When did she turn 35? Why is Cynthia asking Noelle who her date to Homecoming is as she is getting dressed to leave? This script makes no sense. Apparently, the script also includes Kenya coming over to help Cynthia parent her child. Why is Cynthia asking Kenya about the pilot when Cynthia is in it ? Shouldn’t she know? This whole scene is weird. Why is Kenya mentoring Cynthia’s kid how to walk? Oh wait, at least Cynthia pointed that out.
Cynthia and Peter chat about the trip. Cynthia is unhappy her butt is getting so big. It is looking bigger. Cynthia is trying to get Peter to help her with the Jamaican accent her character has on Life Twirls On.
The :40 mark out take was of Kenya acting in the show as a knife wielding bride. Cute!
Gregg takes Nene to Sardi’s. Nene thinks she is a real New Yorker. Brentt is having a good time playing hooky and hanging out in New York. Gregg points out that Brentt needs rules. Nene doesn’t seem to think so. Nene’s parenting track record leaves much to be desired. Continue reading

The ladies at The Farm
The ladies must move on from their Zen resort (The Farm) and move on to their next destination. Everyone is relaxed and getting along! They are heading back to Manila to stay at the Shangri la Makati Hotel in Manila. They are really putting on the dog for the housewives with half the staff greeting them a manager escorting them to penthouse level.
I was just going to ignore this part, and then there it was! Another shocking talking head look. It’s not even the wig that is so damn bad. It might be the eyebrows. It might be the eye makeup. The lipstick is God awful. The teeth are bigger and whiter. She looks like a drag queen but I can’t figure out what exactly makes it so shockingly bad other than…EVERYTHING. Especially the eyebrows.
THEY ARE GIVING NENE A MONTAGE OF HER MOMENTS ON RHOA! THIS IS A GREAT SIGN!
Here is a Nene link for you Nene lovers that want a TT version of the montage. Continue reading
