Peter Thomas, the husband of Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Cynthia Bailey, is perhaps the most vocal of all of the husbands on the show. The Jamaican entrepreneur has a somewhat controversial relationship with his wife and although they appear happy, he often comes off insensitive, bossy and dismissive of his wife’s feelings. Several ladies on the cast have commented about Peter constantly voicing his opinions on arguments the ladies are having with each other. At one point, Nene Leakes suggested that Peter hold a peach in the intro of the show with the rest of the ladies, and she also called him a b**ch. With all of this controversy surrounding the outspoken Thomas, he’s decided to capitalize on his fame and pitch his own television show….about Bar One.
Bar One is the watering hole and lounge that he famously started with both he and Cynthia’s money (without her knowledge) and allegedly he has been struggling to turn a profit. His last business also failed, so in an attempt to help her husband save his business, Cynthia moved her modeling agency from downtown Atlanta, to an adjacent building that was also owned by Bar One. The problem was….Peter neglected to tell his wife that the lease to the Bar (and her agency) had not been renewed. I caught up with Peter on the red carpet and he informed me that they indeed lost the lease on that property and are currently looking for a new location. And that he is taking all of the drama to the small screen for his own spin-off show about launching a Bar One franchise across the U.S.
“I’m opening a new bar in Charlotte on the 10th of July. You know, in a couple of weeks, less than 2 weeks. I’m looking for a new location in Atlanta because we had to give up our other location. I’m kinda excited about that because we kinda outgrew the space. And I’m definitely looking in New York also. And I’m working on ‘Building Bar One,’ which is a show of me…an urban version of me building bars across the country.”
Alright now Mr. Thomas…
