As fans of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" eagerly await Sunday's season finale, one of the cast members who will figure prominently in that episode is having his say.
Peter Thomas is set to marry cast member Cynthia Bailey on Sunday's show, and Thomas recently took to the pages of Uptown magazine to get a few things off his chest. Thomas, who formerly owned an Atlanta club also named "Uptown," used the interview as the opportunity to have his say on things viewers have been privy to all season.
Fans have watched as Thomas struggled to save his business, and Bailey shared that she had invested some coin into the establishment. When the doors closed on the club, Bailey worried that she would never see a return on her investment.
But Thomas said that in his opinion, it wasn't that much money to begin with.
"As much as I appreciate what she’s done, it probably came across to everybody that she put up all this money to help me build my restaurant," Thomas said. "No. Initially, she put up $10,000. Uptown [Restaurant and Lounge] cost several hundred thousand dollars—$10,000 couldn’t buy the silverware and the plates at Uptown."
Thomas, who says he is not being paid to appear on the show, said he fully expects his Bailey to be supportive.
"If I need her to do something for me again, she better step up," he said. "That’s part of her duty as a wife. Because she’s never gonna call on me and I say no—never. It’s my duty as a husband to provide whatever support to [help] her go forward."
And while much has been made on the show about Bailey's potential to be a "runaway bride," Thomas said he too used to have an aversion to the institution.
"I didn’t want to marry nobody," he explained. "I was dating this one celebrity and read in People magazine that she said she wanted to marry Peter Thomas. So I went left on her."
But he has apparently found true love with Bailey, who he says is a "cool person" and someone he can live with.
The entrepreneur also lets loose on his thoughts about the other "housewives. "
"If they say, 'What do you think about the other Housewives?' I’m gonna say, 'I can’t stand Phaedra’s a**," Thomas told the magazine. "I think Kim is crazy as [expletive]. Nene has a big-a** mouth, okay? And Sheree’s not cute! She thinks she’s cute, but she’s not cute. And this is ON the record. The only one I like is Kandi, and she’s too soft. That’s why she got played with Kim. And that’s how I truly feel."
