Peter Thomas recently announced he and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey have signed back on for another season of the hit show. Speaking to Uptown Magazine, Peter bragged about how well the numbers are on the Real Housewives of Atlanta
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta is the number one show on Bravo, not just in the Housewives franchise. I need people to understand what that means. No other show on the network does our numbers. Not one. This ensemble cast of black people is number one on a very popular network, but not one of our wives’ faces are on a billboard advertising the show.”
Peter complains that after being in Los Angeles billboards of reality shows and questions why the Real Housewives doesn’t get that saying,
“Why doesn’t our show get the same exposure. I asked that question to a Bravo executive and I was told it’s because they don’t need to advertise for us. We get the numbers anyway. But imagine if they did. And let’s not get it twisted, if this all black cast was doing as poorly in the ratings as some of the other shows on the network, we’d be fired and the show would be cancelled.”
And Peter wants you to know that RHOA did not make him!
“Peter Thomas was Peter Thomas before the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Reality TV didn’t make Cynthia Bailey or Peter Thomas like some of the other people on our show. We were doing big shit before this.”
