It’s safe to say that the Real Housewives of Atlanta has just as much drama on screen as it does off. Over the past few episodes, we have seen the fallout from an epic brawl involving all of the cast members on what was supposed to be a festive time. If that isn’t enough, last month, surprising allegations were made about Phaedra Parks’ hubby Apollo Nida who was arrested for alleged bank fraud and identity theft. Reportedly, the reality star is being accused of creating fake business and opening fake bank accounts under real people’s names. Also, it’s being reported that he deposited US Treasury Checks, checks from retired Delta Airlines employees and other unclaimed monies. Nida was scheduled to appear in court last week, but it looks like that was postponed.
In a recent interview with Jet Magazine, Cynthia Bailey spoke out on the recent drama on and off screen. Bailey talks about her current relationship with Kenya Moore and NeNe’s involvement in the infamous ‘pillow talk’ brawl, Peter’s involvement with Apollo’s court troubles and more. Peep the excerpts below.
Status of her relationship with Kenya:
Kenya and I are cool. I have come to the conclusion that people feel like NeNe started it. She never told anyone to get up and fight, but she definitely stirred the pot a little bit.
Rumors that Peter was involved in Apollo’s business dealings:
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.
Watching the fight on television:
When the fight actually happened, we were all really surprised. When everyone started initially fighting with their words and throwing lots of shade, I sort of knew that it would escalate and I know that the people who watch our show don’t want to see us fighting, especially when mates and husbands get physical.
Who she feels is to blame for the fight:
I say when Kenya actually got up. I don’t want to put the blame on her, but her emotion just caused a domino effect. You know we are all grown and personally, I always try to be rational and conduct myself with class, but sometimes my crew is a little messy sometimes — and I can’t not throw a rock in there sometimes.
