If Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes were still good friends, they would likely have a big laugh about this. On Thursday, July 3, Cynthia's husband, Peter Thomas, revealed that people are actually mistaking him for NeNe's husband, Gregg Leakes. The husbands of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" may frequently be seen on the hit show but apparently some people think that they all look the same!
Peter posted a scathing tweet stating that if another "motherf****r" in Charlotte calls him Gregg, "it's going to be a problem." He added that he has "no disrespect" but he's just not him.
Several fans replied to say how ridiculous it is that dark-skinned black men all look the same to some people. Some also complemented Peter, telling him that he's much sexier than Gregg. Of course, Gregg's fans took the opportunity to say that he's better than Peter.
Guess that means the people in Charlotte aren't as avid watchers of the show as they are in Atlanta and elsewhere? Once the Charlotte location of his Bar One lounge gets up and running and he spends more time there, perhaps people will realize that he looks nothing like Gregg?
Something that may also help reduce the confusion is more air time for the housewives' husbands, which may very well happen in season seven of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and all upcoming seasons. While at the Debra Lee Pre-Dinner for the BET Awards show during the prior weekend, Peter revealed that the producers and/or the network actually want to give the husbands their own show "every year, at the end of the year." Peter added that they want to do at least three or four of them.
At the end of season six, the husbands, without their wives, sat down and talked about the season in their own special titled "Husbands Revealed." Unlike what happened at the regular reunion show, where Porsha Williams actually physically attacked Kenya Moore, there was no fighting between the husbands at their reunion show. Of course, that may change between Peter Thomas and Gregg Leakes since it's likely that things between their wives Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes will get very ugly in season seven!
