RHOA: Is Peter Thomas Involved In Apollo Nida’s Federal Fraud Case?

Posted on Feb 17 2014 - 4:50pm by Staff Writer

Peter Thomas

Supermodel, Real Housewives of Atlanta star, and CEO of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion, Cynthia Bailey recently conducted an interview with Jet Magazine to clear up a few misconceptions.

The internet has been on fire lately with gossip of Apollo Nida’s arrest and identity theft/bank fraud charges. Many are speculating other castmates could possibly be involved in the scam and also charged. While Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida have been tight lipped on their legal woes, Cynthia Bailey opened up to Jet Magazine’s Entertainment Director to address rumors.

On her hubby, Peter Thomas involvement in the scam, Cynthia stated:

“I can’t speak on Apollo, but I can say that Peter Thomas doesn’t have anything to do with a bank fraud scandal to my knowledge. The feds are not sitting outside of our house. That is just not accurate information, and this is the first time that I have heard rumors that Peter is involved in any way.”

On the relationship with Cynthia and her sister Malorie, Cynthia expressed:

“I am now in a much better place and I am glad that she came back to hang out with me … until she went back and told Peter some stuff that I told her. I feel like I should be able to talk to my husband about certain things and my girls about certain things, without them going back and telling any of that information. But Mal is my only sister and we are very close. I need my sister in my life. I don’t need her to stay with us for two months at a time, but I do need to see my girl.”

Cynthia was then asked about her co-star, Kenya Moore’s mystery “African Prince” and she had this to say:

“I have never actually met her African Prince. No, I have never met her man before. I have heard about him and I look forward to meeting him one day.”

Tune in Sundays on Bravo at 7/8 PM EST to watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

    How funny I just said this on the other thread Dr., yes I think he’s involved, who would give a deadbeat a loan for a Mercedes other than Apollo? LOL

    • RX

      Peter is not involved. FEDS have not questioned Peter. The cars might be a loan for the show. I.E. free publicity.

      • ohdearme

        I honestly don’t think Peter or Cynthia would reveal if they had been questioned.

        • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

          I sort of make a point to not be involved with anything oriented to the Law, like police, etc..
          But, I also don’t know if questioning by the authorities would be considered public knowledge that could be researched at this point or not.
          Does anybody out there know if this kind of information is researchable?

          • ohdearme

            No it is not, at that point it would be considered a part of their investigation, no one would know but Cynthia and Peter and I’m sure they wouldn’t tell lol.

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            Yeah, I’d be quite as a church mouse on that too!

          • ohdearme

            ikr, you couldn’t pay me enough to tell (especially not Mal) lol.

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            Oh, you got that right on the Mal edge.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Who says “not to my knowledge” when talking about possible criminal activity? That’s not much of a vote of confidence in Peter.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      ITA, West! It’s an odd thing to say when talking about your HUSBAND!!!! I wonder what she has heard about his activity, or how she “feels” about it. I always believe in gut feelings!!!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    I’m not an Atlanta viewer so I tried watching the mini marathon yesterday so I could get a better understanding of the dynamic. It simply did not hold my interest. But I don’t quite understand some of the snide remarks I have seen about Peter’s looks. To me he has a kind face and his skin color is such a warm chocolate brown. I think he is a very good-looking older man.

    • ohdearme

      Then they must not have shown when he was cursing his wife out and asking for a man cave? He’s got a very ugly mitchy soul and persona inside and out.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I haven’t seen that, but I was just talking about his appearance, not his behavior.

        • ohdearme

          I think the name “Papa Smurf” is befitting of his appearance. Disgusting using dog is befitting of his behavior. Two different things lol.

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            Yep, I think that maybe many of us have been acquainted with some nice looking folks (males and females) who looked good but were pretty much dirt bags as far as their integrity, character, truthfulness, morals, etc.

          • ohdearme

            I know I do every stinking day lol.

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            Fun to look at but disgusting to talk to, ay??
            Bummehr!

          • ohdearme

            Not even fun to look at because you know going in that as soon as they open their mouth a lie is going to tumble out!

          • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

            Ahhhh,
            Now that’s when a Lisa V, sit back and watch them string their own noose, attitude comes in for you.
            And one of the biggest kickers I’ve realized about people of this ilk, is that they lie like crazy. Therefore, they think EVERYBODY lies. We who tell the truth think the same (that people tell the truth).
            So with that kind of stupid game in action, we honest ones get exasperated with the outright liars. It’s a lose lose situation. The liars will always try to convince you that they are telling the truth AND they will always accuse you of lying.
            I don’t give that sort of individual the time of day. I mean I will literally not cross the street to help them. I’m such a Bitch with that stuff. A Chumps a Chump. They can wallow in their own crap as far as I’m concerned.
            Good luck to you!! Seriously, hopefully you don’t have to work with this type of crap swilling scummehrz.

          • ohdearme

            LOL it is my work, I don’t mind though. Go to work and throw on the face shield that says “THEY ALL LIE”!

    • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

      If I heard correctly I thought he referred to himself as 57. That’s not really old. Maybe I say that because I’m older, but. . .that’s not really old!

      But, I can see ODM’s point of where he was pretty adamant with Cynthia on his “mancave” BS.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Compared to the rest of the cast, he is older. Compared to me, he’s my kids ages.

        • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

          Now, I don’t believe that for a second!
          You are one sharp cookie!
          I think I am fortunate to know even a little bit of your friendship on these boards. In fact, I feel fortunate to be able to converse with all of y’all (even including the ratbags that I have the opportunity to spew with).
          Seriously, I feel blessed to have all of you in my life!

          • ohdearme

            DITTO Tre’s Twits,
            And I don’t believe that WCF has a 57 year old either, she’s much too sharp as are you!

          • WestCoastFeed

            Okay, I stretched it, but just a little. My oldest is 55.

          • Birdie11

            You’re a spring chickie WCF!

          • Marsbars09

            I would have never have guessed it. You’re sharp as a tac girlfriend!

          • ohdearme

            We’re going to wear you down until that age is really 35!

      • Marsbars09

        Cynthia said Peter was either 52 or 53.

    • Birdie11

      It’s his personality that wrecks any shred of good looks…at least for me.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I haven’t seen enough of him to form an opinion of his personality.

        • Birdie11

          I understand…I will admit that the above pic is an especially good one.

      • Marsbars09

        Agreed. And I think it’s because his beard is white too.

        • Birdie11

          And he’s sort of a shrimp. LOL!!

  • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

    In my not so humble opinion, it’s just not honorable for anybody to make speculative remarks on a legal issue that is as fluid as what is going on with Apollo Nida, Phaekra Parks, etc. At this point, it’s far too soon to make allegations of who might be found involved in the current legal issue with the known parties, let alone wildly implicating someone or anyone else.
    With the Giudice situation, it’s pretty obvious at this point. But with this one, it’s far better to be Switzerland here until more information is clearly revealed like with indictments, etc. This is clearly in a very early stage at this point.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I think you are right, especially since his bail was set so low.

      • ohdearme

        Rumor has it that he’s working on a plea deal.

        • WestCoastFeed

          That sounds about right. There may well be a bigger fish that the Feds want in this case.

    • ohdearme

      idk, it’s a gossip blog about these people that make very poor decisions, we chew on it for a bit, mull it over and toss out different scenarios. It’s not like the Feds will take anything we laugh about as the gospel or base their case around it. Should the actual people come to read, well that’s what happens when you place your life on display. I tell you one thing if we’re ever on a NJ post and someone asks where you live, don’t tell, it’s Teresa and she’s coming for YOU with that name of yours lol.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      I guess it is because Peter hangs around with Apollo. I agree that just because they have been filmed together, means absolutely nothing. I really don’t think Peter would get involved with any of Apollo’s “ventures”! I think he loves Cynthia and their life (inspite of the man cave thing!!) and wouldn’t be involved. He is certainly not my favorite husband, but I don’t think he would do that.

  • ohdearme

    Izzy and I are rolling out the red carpet for PlonkPlonkBloop! lol Let me know when you get here!

    • Marsbars09

      Don’t forget me, ODM!

      • Birdie11

        MARS! YAYYYY! *clapping!*

        • Marsbars09

          Hi baby! How are you doing?

          • Birdie11

            Good! That was your red carpet welcome! Did you like it?

          • Marsbars09

            I LOVED IT! Thank you for the warm welcome, honey. ((HUGS))

          • Birdie11

            ((HUGS)) back!! Glad you’re here!! 😀

          • Marsbars09

            Thank you very much.

      • ohdearme

        could never forget you Mars lol!

  • Marsbars09

    I believe Cynthia when she says she doesn’t believe Peter is caught up in Apollo’s crimes. I don’t think she has knowledge of a lot of what Peter does. Hence he takes money from her bank accounts WITHOUT HER KNOWLEDGE and does all kinds of stuff.
    I sure hope Cynthia covers her assets a lot better now that it seems Peter is under some kind of scrutiny.

  • WinterBlues14

    Cynthia doesn’t know what her husband is doing, poor thing. I’m pretty much over her too because she just follows Nene. Anything for a check I guess. Mal is ok. At least she has a backbone…lol. Cynthia can’t talk about tattle telling when she does the exact same thing though!

  • Bernice

    It’s just not usual for a wife with faith to include “not to my knowledge” in a statement of defense for her husband, especially one volunteered pertaining to charges of this magnitude. It’s usually cut n dry, no room for question, a resounding, flat out – NO!
    But maybe I’m just reading too much into it!
