Post-Thanksgiving news has been filled with updates about the Turkey Day beatdown of Halle Berry‘s ex Gabriel Aubry, the father of her daughter Nahla, by her fiancé Olivier Martinez. Judging by the pictures, Gabriel received the flogging of his life by Olivier, who has professional boxing skills. Although the three adults in the situation have reportedly worked out their differences, the whole situation doesn’t sit well with RHOA husband Peter Thomas. Like Halle, Olivier and Gabriel, Peter, Cynthia and Leon have a similar triangle, only theirs never comes to physical blows. Yet, according to Peter, the media has ignored how maturely he, his wife and her ex handle the situation and so he wanted to share his rant with UPTOWN.
You aren’t cool with what went down in Halle Berry’s driveway. Why?
“My beef is that, if it was two black men who go to work on each other like that, they would say that ‘it’s expected of us,’ ‘we’re criminals,’ ‘we belong in jail’ and ‘they should take the kid away from the woman and put her in a foster home.’ If this man, who just won a custody battle, is coming to drop off his kid in the driveway, Halle Berry had the power to shut all that down. This is a very volatile situation that she’s put herself in once again. He’s dropping off his daughter and all Halle had to do is come out of the house, meet the baby half way just because they don’t like each other and keep it moving and that man can go about his business. But, for the fact that her man, her current boyfriend, had to have something to say and then homeboy had the beatdown of life by a boxer, he should have gone to jail. When I looked at the pictures, that beatdown was severe. That’s a beatdown and a half, stitches, black eye. I’m surprised he didn’t knock out a couple of teeth while he was at it.”
How did your wife RHOA Cynthia Bailey deal with you and Leon and her daughter Noel?
“Halle should take tips from my beautiful wife Cynthia and how she’s handled the situation with me, her daughter Noel and Leon [Noel’s dad]. The way she dealt with it out the gate was I couldn’t even walk in her house until I sat down to dinner with her child’s father. She made sure that everything was so cordial before it could accelerate to another level. If she hadn’t done that and I had started going to her crib after meeting her and I was up in her house and Leon would get heated because he wouldn’t have known this man that was up in the house with his little daughter and then when he see he’s looking at me crazy and then I’m looking at him crazy he might say something I might say something and then it jumps off. My wife made sure that she handled the situation with her new man and her old man so stellar that that never even came up.”
So what happens if Cynthia and Leon disagree on something? What do you do?
“I have to be respectful that if they are having differences to step out of it and let them work out their differences. The only time I would jump in as a black man is if Leon would ever lose his mind and ever talk to my wife reckless and even do it in front of their daughter but I respect him so much because he is not that type of guy. Whenever they disagree, he makes sure Noel is nowhere in the vicinity and then he amicably states how he feels and then they amicably work it out. And the only time I interject is if they ask for my opinion because I wasn’t there when they made this beautiful little girl.”
