I have a couple sips of tea on Cynthia and Peter I really have not had a place for so I am going to stick here. First of all, yesterday Cynthia did a fashion show in the parking lot of a Walmart grand opening that also appeared to be a model search opportunity as well. While she was there she interviewed with an AJC reporter. During that interview she mentioned the foreclosure issue. As I have been saying, it is the landlord of the Bar One property that is facing foreclosure. Property is foreclosed on, businesses go bankrupt.
The big tea was that landlord also owns the building across the street that Cynthia moved her business into. This is NOT what Peter and Cynthia claim on the show where they make it seem like Peter bought the new building and will be Cynthia’s landlord. However, I believe that the property was foreclosed on during filming, so perhaps they bought both properties during filming, and Cynthia is struggling to speak about things “in RHOA time” rather than present time. Frankly, I don’t think Peter and Cynthia could afford to buy what is likely millions of dollars of commercial properties. We will have to watch and see how this situation pans out.
The other bit of Cynthia and Peter tea involves crime in their neighborhood. There was recently and off duty police officer working as a security guard in the area who was shot and killed. Crime Stoppers posted a $5000 reward for information leading to an arrest of the shooter. Peter and Cynthia doubled the reward contributing an additional $5000.
Peter Thomas said he lives five minutes from his business and within minutes of the area where Smith was attacked, and believes that those residents and businesses that benefit from police protection should be willing to protect those officers.
“I wouldn’t want to hear that somebody who was trying to protect us was shot,” he said. “If this person will shoot a policeman, he’ll shoot anybody.”
I love that Peter is taking a role in the community and doing his part to give back. Hats off to Peter and Cynthia!
