Notable/Quotable: Peter Thomas Speaks His Mind on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'

Comments (90)



"I can't stand Phaedra's ass. I think Kim is crazy as f*ck. Nene has a big-ass mouth. And Sheree's not cute! She thinks she's cute, but she's not cute. And this is on the record. The only one I like is Kandi, and she's too soft. That's why she got played with Kim. And that's how I truly feel."



-- 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' husband and entrepreneur Peter Thomas, weighing in on his wife Cynthia Bailey's cast-mates. (Uptown Magazine)
