Earlier this week, BV posted an interview with Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Cynthia Bailey.Â The beauty, who graces the cover of UPTOWNâ€™s Weddings and Travel issue, spoke candidly about her summer nuptials to entrepreneur Peter Thomas. Anyone who follows the show knows all about the investment Cynthia made in Thomasâ€™ now defunct restaurant venture.Â Cynthia dished her side of the story declaring, â€œI donâ€™t know when I am getting that money back, but heâ€™s going to have to give me something.â€
We heart Cynthia and Peter, so it only seemed proper that both parties had the chance to address the seemingly touchy subject. Peter most certainly wanted to clarify a few points and set the record straight. In an exclusive with UPTOWN, the self-proclaimed â€œreckless mouthâ€ didn’t hold back on a number of subjects, including marriage, the ex-factor, and how he really feels about the rest of the RHOA cast. In his words…
ON THE MONEY-LENDING INCIDENT
As much as I appreciate what sheâ€™s done, it probably came across to everybody that she put up all this money to help me build my restaurant. No. Initially, she put up $10,000. Uptown [Restaurant and Lounge] cost several hundred thousand dollarsâ€”$10,000 couldnâ€™t buy the silverware and the plates at Uptown.
So itâ€™s not like sheâ€™s supported my vision and gave me money to build a restaurant â€™cuz thatâ€™s not what happened. And I want to clear that up. I didnâ€™t agree with her putting that out there to the public. But sheâ€™s on a reality show and sheâ€™s a new jack to it, so she might feel as if thatâ€™s what she needed to do. I didnâ€™t agree to that. But I didnâ€™t oppose either, especially if sheâ€™s telling the truth. She has the right to say it. But I donâ€™t want the viewers to leave with the impression, â€œOh, sh-t. He got with this model girl and sheâ€™s putting up all this money to support his sh-t.â€Â Thatâ€™s not the way it is.
SHE CANâ€™T TELL ME NO
If I need her to do something for me again, she better step up. Thatâ€™s part of her duty as a wife. Because sheâ€™s never gonna call on me and I say noâ€”never. Itâ€™s my duty as a husband to provide whatever support to [help] her go forward. The show that Iâ€™m on is called Atlanta Housewives, not Atlanta Husbands. Iâ€™m not getting paid to be on the show. But I have to do it to support my wife. So I just gotta bite my lip, swallow my spit, and call it a day.
