Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas' marriage has always been rocky to say the least.

Even before they got married there was tension between them around his financial difficulties and business failures.  She recently explained that she has funded his various businesses since she's known him—despite him claiming for the last few seasons that he didn't need her income.

Then there were the huge problems between him and her mother and sister.  The wedding episode where they hid the marriage license right before the ceremony, caused a huge rift, which Cynthia was constantly in the middle of. Cynthia's sister Malorie has always been there to offer her support but has never hidden her dislike of her brother-in-law.

Peter, 56, meanwhile, has always inserted himself fully in the housewives' business—something which the other ladies did not take kindly to.  During one fight NeNe Leakes famously called Thomas "a little bitch", a comment which ultimately led to the downfall of the friendship between Cynthia and NeNe, something Peter was pretty happy about.

Money Monday—How Much is NeNe Leakes Really Worth?

Despite the formidable Ms Leakes being out of their lives (well, before they made up again at least), the Bailey/Thomas marriage crumbled during the last season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.  Peter now lives (and allegedly plays) in Charlotte, North Carolina, and at the end of March Cynthia confirmed they were living separate lives, telling UsWeekly;

"I am spending time with my daughter and taking some time for myself.  Whatever the future holds for my marriage, I have given over to God."

The marriage has been dogged by cheating rumors and many fans of the Bravo show can't believe that Cynthia would want to try to make things work with him when he seems to make every excuse to be away from her, doubt herself and her friendships as well as (allegedly) playing away. Hell there's even been rumors that he's slept with at least one of the other housewives from the show! (Could this possibly explain why Cynthia went postal on Porsha during season eight?)

House Tour Tuesday—Phaedra Parks Palatial Atlanta Home

The 48 year old model turned businesswoman went on Radio Andy in March and spoke of their difficulties;

"We're the only couple on The Real Housewives of Atlanta that was actually married on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. We've never been married outside of the show, and I don't think that has helped us a lot.

Maybe if we were married three years before we got on the show, that would've been better. I just have nothing to compare my marriage to outside of being on the show.

It's just been difficult. I mean, the wedding was difficult. Everything about our marriage has been difficult."

Well it seems it's about to get a whole lot more difficult.

A source close to Peter told that he was lawyering up for the fight that's to come and that he is going after half of Cynthia's Bravo earnings;

"Peter is no fool. He sacrificed a lot for Cynthia during their marriage. He was unpaid for many seasons on [Housewives] and he did it because he believed that all the money that was coming in was for him and Cynthia.

I'm not saying that the marriage is over. But if it is, Peter will be looking to divide up their assets, and get half of all Cynthia's Bravo checks going forward."

Thomas called BS on that quote, but went on radio station Power 98 in Charlotte, giving what can only be described as attempt at a face saving PR interview. He talked about his marriage and blamed being on the show as the main factor in it's demise.

He's now quit the show (or was he pushed?), claiming that he did it so that any marriage downfall wouldn't be played out on on TV (a bit late for that now).  Bearing in mind it's never bothered him before, he just loves the spotlight, that is a big sign that the situation is irretrievable. He also says he hasn't been paid for his appearances during the seasons he's appeared—which pretty much confirms the denied quote above.  On a side note, if that is the case, why would he feel obliged to 'work' the 18 hour days he's bitching that they have to put in during filming?

Divorce papers haven't officially been filed yet, but it seems pretty clear that the writing is on the wall for this reality couple.  Cynthia recently told NBC's New York Live

"Peter is in Charlotte, and as you can see, I’m in New York. We’re definitely not together. I have been taking some time for myself to just kind of figure out how I would like to move forward. We haven’t officially done anything at this point, but we are definitely talking about taking steps to officially move forward in a different direction.

I can only do but so some point, nothing has to be that hard."

Well get ready Cynthia, cos it's gonna get even harder—Peter will not be going quietly—check out his Instagram post and watch this space!

Man, those housewives are getting physical now!

Filming is currently underway for the Season 8 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, and there was Bravo all worried that with NeNe Leakes out of the picture, there wouldn't be enough drama.

Guess Who’s Back On The Real Housewives Of Atlanta?

Well hell were they wrong!  It's been leaked that two cast members, namely Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey got into a verbal catfight which culminated in Cynthia kicking Porsha in the stomach.  Thank goodness the Bravo cameras were there to capture it on camera!

They were on a boat trip with co-stars Kenya Moore and Kim Fields and the pair got into it over something trivial.  Things got heated, with Porsha calling Cynthia a bitch, and Cynthia walked away, with Kim following to console her.  Now Porsha has proven in the past that she's not one to let things go, so in typical dog-with-a-bone fashion, she went over to where Bailey was sitting down to start it up again.

Porsha got in Cynthia's face and that's when Cynthia's self defense training came into good use.  She kicked out at Porsha, landing one in her stomach! Boy she must have been pissed!  Producers stepped in and Porsha left shortly afterwards to get checked out in hospital, where she was hooked up with some pain meds.

A source has told E!News that Porsha is not planning to press charges and that, in true reality style, the pair just want to "move forward".

The really shocking take away from this story is that there was a fight and Kenya Moore wasn't involved! WTF??


Season 8 of Real Housewives of Atlanta has just started filming and Bravo have brought back a couple of old faces to fill the void left by NeNe Leakes' departure.

Nene Leakes And Kim Zolciak—Taking The Road To Riches Together

Sheree Whitfield is officially back as a full time housewife—she was one of the originals and feuded with everyone, including the infamous wig-tugging fight with BFF Kim Zolciak outside a restaurant.  She was last seen trying to get a better divorce settlement out of ex-husband and former NFL star Bob Whitfield to finish building her mega mansion—Chateau Sheree. The absence of any sign of progress to the building was something of a bitchy joke to the other housewives during Season 4.

One of Sheree's knock-down-stand up fights was with the other returning face, Marlo Hampton in Africa, where shockingly NeNe ended up being the mediator.  Originally brought on as a friend of the housewives to wind up NeNe (they shared an ex), Marlo stunned everyone by becoming close friends with Ms Leakes—she was even a bridesmaid at Nene's re-marriage to Gregg Leakes in 2013.  That friendship came apart at the seems though and the pair are no longer on speaking terms.

‘Head Bitch’ NeNe Leakes Throws Epic Tantrum, Storms Out Of Therapy

Sheree's fight with Marlo was one that has gone down in housewives history.  It included screaming at the tops of their voices, a lot of finger wagging and so much shade thrown about each others financial situations it's surprising they ever managed to be in the same room again.  Its amazing what you can force yourself to put up with when there are a few $$$ and some screen time on the table as they are both back for Season 8.

Given the personalities involved we can see potential drama in the form of Sheree vs Kenya Moore, throw in a bit of Peter Thomas (Cynthia Bailey's husband who likes to get into the ladies business) and it will be shade central!

We cannot wait to see, what is arguably the best Housewives franchise back on the air.


Nothing says 'I'm proud of my teenage daughter's scholastic achievements' like a humungous pair of fake tits.

Kim Zolciak's 18-year-old daughter is the happy recipient of such a thoughtful graduation present, and is [of course] showing off her newly amplified assets on social media.

Brielle Zolciak has been slowly morphing more and more into her reality TV star mother each passing week it seems—with the two sporting matching Barbie doll shaved down and upturned noses, plumped up pouts, fake tans, fake lashes, hair extensions…and now, matching fake racks.

The fact that Brielle is only 18, and therefore still developing physically might act as a deterrent to some parents when it comes to paying for plastic surgery…. the fact that, as most teen girls do, she likely needs reassurance that she looks great the way she is, without surgical enhancement…..the fact that as she graduates school you might want to put emphasis on her mental capacity and her smarts rather than her bra size and tits…..well, that's all just nonsense when it comes to Kim Zolciak.

Ugh….. just…. ugh….Perhaps if she makes it to college proud momma can buy her a labiaplasty.

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to get my head around what self respecting 18-year-old wants to look like their mom?!!!!!

It's happening!

Bravo has announced a new show starring Nene Leakes and Kim Zolciak.

The weave tuggin' frenemies were in NYC last week to talk about their upcoming show Nene and Kim:  The Road To Riches which will follow them on their adventures as they take a road trip around the USA.

Now, you may remember, the last trip they took together, in an RV to Miami in 2011, resulted in the huge argument which put the final nail in the coffin of their onscreen friendship (NeNe accused Kim of treating her assistant Sweetie like a slave).

Don't be expecting the old fireworks though. Both Nene "I am very rich" Leakes and Kim "Can you pour some wine in my coffee cup?" Zolciak have moved on from those dirty laundry airing days. The two ladies have become considerably more media savvy since their last appearances together on Real Housewives of Atlanta in Season 5, when Kim quit the series halfway through as she really couldn't be assed with all the fighting since she was too busy producing babies at a rate of knots.

They were originally genuine friends though and have since made up behind the scenes, with Kim, and husband Kroy Biermann, attending NeNe's nuptials to ex-hubby, Greg Leakes, in 2013.

What the show does promise to deliver is the hilarious one liners from the divas and the same banter between the two of them that we saw from Season 1 of RHOA—should be good!


It’s good to talk—unless you’re trying to do so with NeNe Leakes—and then it inevitably just turns into an insane, screaming bitch-fest.

At the behest of the 47-year-old, The Real Housewives of Atlanta gathered together to air their grievances under the watchful eye of Dr. Jeff Gardere.

Not surprisingly, given this bunch of nut jobs, things soon turned sour, resulting in raised voices, accusations, tears galore and…piece de resistance….. NeNe throwing an epic tantrum and storming out—you can watch the drama unfold, right here on Popdust.

Talk to the hand bitches, ‘cos this delusional drama queen really ain’t listening.

It all started off well enough, as Leakes beseeched her castmates to talk it out, with the aim of the good doc getting things “back on track.”

NOTE TO NENE: Give the poor guy a break, he’s a therapist, not a miracle worker.

Sure enough, sparks started to fly after Dr. G asked NeNe and her arch nemesis Kenya Moore to discuss their fractured friendship and ongoing feud.

“We're never going to be friends,” NeNe sniped. “We will never be friends. Ever again.”

So much for “getting back on track”….

It didn’t take long for all the Housewives to start calling NeNe out on her cray cray to the max shit—with good reason, right? Seeing as SHE was the one who instigated the therapy session then cut it dead in its tracks.

“You don't realize you're the drama,” voice of reason Kandi Burrusss was quick to point out. "This desire to be head bitch in charge is driving her crazy.”

Claudia Jordan jumped straight into the frey, branding NeNe’s behavior as “bipolar.”

However, things turned nuclear after the subject of NeNe’s war with ex-best friend Cynthia Bailey was broached.

In true Real Housewives style, the two women went AT IT, screaming over each other, and accusing each other of being a “mean girl” ...forcing Dr. G to intervene in a vain attempt to cool the situation.

Yeah, good luck with that mate.

But, the straw that broke the camel’s back was when Kandi started sticking up for Cynthia….oh, hell no!

A suddenly stoic NeNe just couldn’t take it anymore, standing up and silently leaving the room in protest, with the long suffering doc running after her.

“I’m not going to sit here and act as if I am the sole cause of these friendships and relationships being the way they are today,” NeNe sniffed indignantly. “I’m not staying here for Attack NeNe Day!”

“This must be Attack NeNe Day, and I'm not doing it with you,” she vowed dramatically.”Nope!”

Meanwhile, Kandi summed it up perfectly, “I am so over it!” She declared.

We so hear you girlfriend….we so hear you...

If you want to see yet more screaming matches, general insanity and jaw dropping levels of delusion, tune into Bravo at 8/7 on Sundays for all new episodes of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.
