RHOA’s Peter Thomas Puts Lisa Vanderpump’s Restaurant On Blast; Calls It ‘Ghetto’

January 17, 2013 |By Continue Reading

Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter are in Los Angeles visiting for a few days. Earlier, Cynthia and NeNe were posting pictures of themselves hanging out on set at The New Normal. Peter stopped by RHOBH’s Lisa Vanderpump’s West Hollywood restaurant SUR Wednesday night and let’s just say he was not too happy with his experience!

Peter instantly took to Twitter to announce his far from pleasant experience at SUR, calling it “ghetto” and asking Lisa what was going on! Apparently, a woman was being taken into custody by sheriff”s while Peter was there and he took the opportunity to put SUR on blast to the whole world. Read his tweets below:

You can tell by the later tweets that Peter tried to make it seem like he was talking about the actual arrest of the woman, not the restaurant. I still don’t think that he should have said this about Lisa’s restaurant especially since he is also a self-proclaimed “restaurateur”. This could make Lisa’s business look bad and he should’ve just kept quiet about it. Also, SUR is in West Hollywood, not Beverly Hills. And there is a difference, believe it or not.

Thoughts on what Peter tweeted about Lisa’s restaurant?

OMYGOSH!!!!! Are y’all serious?! Maybe it’s a Sourhern thing or a black thing but we are usually curious about the race of a criminal. Peter on the other hand is from Jamaica and recently moved to the South. He lived in New York and Cali for many years. I think he was just clarifying the term Ghetto can refer to white or black people. He gave a description!!! A description!!!!! I repeat, a description!!! He didn’t “say crazy white B” or “poor white trash” he just stated the lady was white. To all those offended you mean to tell me… Read more »

OMG! I’m surprised SUR is still open. I was there in 2011 and the service was just terrible. One of the waiters made an obscene gesture in reference to my friend’s breasts and laughed with the bartender… What they didn’t realise was that I could see them in the large a** mirror against the wall..Besides, that spot is in the worst location. If you want good food you’ll cross the street to Cecconi’s or go a block to Il Piccolino… For fun you’ll go past it to The Abbey…

I am just going to say it like I see it , yes he did mean that white woman the same way white people will refer to it as some black woman.. he is loving it because of the steriotypical of the ghetto scene of someone being arrested at a restauraunt only happens at a poor black neighborhood. Sounds to me he is just making a point and they go hand in hand and that it doesnt matter where or who because it really does happen anywhere and to anyone. The tweet to Lisa was just a hay wth there… Read more »

Lisa can’t prohibit the officers from arresting someone. I wouldn’t take Peter’s advice on anything. He said they were Sheriff Deputies which would be there for different reasons than the police so it’s difficult to know why they had to arrest someone in the restaurant. From all the crime shows I watch, I think they would have avoided making a public arrest that they couldn’t control if they had the option. Peter is tacky. I do hope he keeps us updated on the race of everyone he interacts with and witnesses on a daily basis.

FYI …. West Hollywood does not have its own police department. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department IS their Police Department. They handle the same situations and bad people that the LAPD or BHPD handle in their jurisdictions. That particular Sheriff’s office is quite busy as WeHo has a lot going on all the time.

First of all, this show is not called House Husbands of the RHW of BH. I couldn’t care less about the men. If Peter or the men want to join, let them wear sequins and high heels. Then it would be more enjoyable to see or hear them speak. Truthfully,if I was the customer at SUR, and that incident happened, I would never go back. Most likely this happened because of this “Rules” show, and I think it will happen again. I feel the servers are/will be the demise of this show/restaurant; at least for the older crowd with money… Read more »

You have no room to preach about what is and is not Ghetto! PS….why are you tweeting Lisa like you are a somebody of RHOA?!?!?

wasn’t peters own restaurant located in the “ghetto”. wasn’t sheree making fun of him because of the location? didn’t he and cynthia get offended of that? so he’s an idiot for saying that about lisa’s restaurant. how is someone getting arrested right away “ghetto”. i’ve seen people thrown out or arrested in the most fancy places. especially when there is liquer involved. besides sur is located in west hollywood where it has an active nightlife of nightclubs and restaurants that diverse people attend.

Wow, the comments about this post says it all. Peter’s just trying to stir sh*t up so he can get people talking about him. You got what you wanted Peter.

And I do detect a little hint of jealousy from his childish antics (yeah, the live tweets were CHILDISH!). Lisa & Ken are SUCCESSFUL restauranteurs and sounds like he’s on to his second failure.

Does anyone here believe he would have gone on a twitter rant if this happened at any other well known BH restaurant? I sure don’t.

How is he racist for acknowledging (sp?) that she was a white woman? He didn’t say anything offensive in my opinion. It is what it is, if this was Lisa going into his resturant and wrote it was ghetto and a black woman just got arrested, would she be racist? GMAFB.

If Lisa went to Peter’s restaurant, which she never would, and Twittered that it was ‘ghetto’ and that a ‘black’ woman was been arrested there, all hell would break loose!! Peter and all the GA cast would be screaming racism.

Peter should just focus on his own business in GA.

When you take pleasure in sonmebody else’s trouble, that’s just jealousy. He didn’t have to put it on Twitter. People who try to make it in the entertainment business, but who fail, as Peter did, look for any reason to tear LA down. He’s trying to tell himself that he isn’t missing anything.

This is true. I think Peter has the right to his opinion, but he should get the location right and not make it look like a racist statement IMO. But, Lisa is fair game. She wants SUR to look as if it were Bagatelle which it is so not.

Lisa wants the publicity so SUR can be a Bagatelle with NY, Vegas, South Beach and now Hong Kong restaurant club appeal. She is not an idiot. Cipriani did this and has over 26 restaurants and 55 main clubs not counting their other businesses and products.

West Hollywood is the hip part of LA. She has significant competition. People would hate to go to a restaurant/bar that has an older crowd. Lisa wants the young sex appeal just like Bagatelle in NYC and make it the models hang-out which in turn attracts men and women to come and meet and spend money. Lisa is not stupid and I totally think that she wants SUR to get that name and out rank the other restaurants in the area. You are right!

I don’t know what Lisa would or wouldn’t do but I’ve never heard that she was responsible for the negative comments about Peter’s restaurant. Peter wasn’t necessarily malicious (although as a restaurateur who has experienced the impact of unflattering comments, one would think he’d be sympathetic). Perhaps he just wanted to make a point. It’s just that he doesn’t get it. As with all of us, his conduct shows us who he is. While any customer has the right to express their opinion of their experience, one would think that Peter & Lisa would want to extend each other professional… Read more »

So because he has restaurants that have failed he isn’t allowed to call Lisa’s partons as being ghetto. I don’t think Lisa would have done the same to Peter, but I doubt Lisa would go to ATL and even visits Peter’s establishment. He reported what he saw, big deal, he was actually telling to come down here and get your shit in order..she responded Im on my way..chill.

I think the bigger deal is he is in the same business as Lisa. He has to know what he said was wrong even if it were true. Do actors go out and say a fellow actors movie sucks and dont waste your money seeing it while its in theaters? No.. thats in poor taste. He may be right about her resturant… the bad reviews of his resturant may be right as well. What he did was in bad taste.

I’m surprised by the comments. So Peter can’t comment on something he observed with his very own eyes? And instead of addressing the scene he describes, people resort to ad hominem attacks ….

I think the Vanderpump show has demonstrated that Lisa’s restaurant is ghetto.

If your restaurant is the focus of a reality show, you’re going to be under the microscope.

I’m sure the twitter is full of SUR tweets, good and bad. I bet Lisa wasn’ bothered by this at all. In fact I bet the traffic into SUR is increased due to the twitter buzz.

Its the staff! UGH. I think this just was just not the right type of show for her. To me, I think it just looks bad on Peter for commenting on another franchise’s member’s business, as he is a business owner himself. ( In the past not a very good one). I said upthread had it been just a random putting out what transpired, I would not even comment on it.
