Just like last year’s extravagant wedding, the couple’s anniversary celebration was being filmed for The Real Housewives of Atlanta and is rumored to be the finale for the upcoming 4th season of the show.
[Sidebar: In an effort to avoid stepping on any of my friends’ toes, I’m not giving away any major details about the who’s and the whats… so no spoilers this time.]
…but you can still check out sneak peek photos from the anniversary celebration below: Continue Reading…
Real “Housewife” of Atlanta/Supermodel Cynthia Bailey celebrated the grand opening of her dream come true.
Cynthia recently held a launch party for her school of fashion, where she confirmed plans to partner with colleague Marcus Jackson of CALIBER Enterprises (a fashion, event and talent management consulting company).
Coined “The Bailey Agency,” the school is Cynthia’s personal vision for an instructional program that will offer students an intense 6-week course covering all areas of the fashion industry including modeling, photography and production.
The launch party drew the attention of fashion industry vets throughout Atlanta, such as designer Mychael Knight and celebrity photographer Derek Blanks and was also taped for an upcoming episode of the The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
That being said, you already know each and every one of the Atlanta “housewives” were in the building (even rumored “newbie” /ex-convict Marlo Hampton) to celebrate the launch and mug it up for the cameras!
Cute couple 🙂
Apollo Nida and Phaedra Parks (She is WEARING that dress!)
Now Thomas, in partnership with Robert “RL” Thomas of the R&B group Next (Peter Thomas Entertainment Group), has developed a brand new restaurant/nightspot called “Bar One” located in the Grant Park neighborhood of Downtown Atlanta.
A private preview of the new spot was held for family and friends last week and was co-hosted by Cynthia’s fellow “Real Housewife” NeNe Leakes.
Other attendees included “Football Wives” star Chanita Foster, Q Parker (of 112), industry vet Shanti Das, NFL player Charles Grant and fellow “housewives” Phaedra Parks, Sheree Whitfield.
Lawd knows I loves me some Peter Thomas (who I saw recently during ATL Live on the Park), so imagine my surprise yesterday when my good twitter friend Bravolebrity1 clued me in on Peter’s recent legal issues.
Apparently Peter was in an Atlanta court earlier this week addressing charges that he assaulted a female employee of his now defunct Uptown Nightclub.
The first was from an April 2008 arrest in which Peter was arrested for Simple Battery. He was released the same day after posting $1,000 bond and charges were later dropped in that case.
The second mugshot was from the incident on December 3, 2009 when he was arrested in Atlanta for Simple Battery and Battery with visible harm. Peter was released the same day of the arrest after posting $2,000 bond and appeared in court this week (Monday, June 20, 2011) to face his accuser and former employee.
Peter was originally facing up to a year in prison if convicted but he has confirmed that he was found NOT GUILTY of all charges.
Event producers Shanti Das and Marlon Nichols did a wonderful job bring together over 300 Atlanta tastemakers and music industry insiders to celebrated the One-Year Anniversary of the event, held at Park Tavern in midtown.
Heralded as the most exclusive live music showcase in the city author/musician Fonzworth Bentley wowed the crowd with his expertly choreographed routine and R&B group NEXT reunited as headliners of the hot show.
When RL spotted 112’s Q Parker sitting in the audience alongside his wife Sherlinda, he handed him the mic urging him to sing a few bars.
Q first sung a lick while sitting but soon hit the stage, giving the hyped crowed a brief 112 flashback…
