Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey’s Bar One and Bailey Modeling Agency in Trouble?

On a recent interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen, RHOA’s  Peter Thomas (Cynthia Bailey’s husband) assured fans that his Atlanta venue Bar One was doing quite well. However, that may not be the truth.

Thomas is being sued for $100,000 for unpaid rent and bills at Bar One. The building’s landlord Eloshua Elliott says, [the] “defendant breached a lease agreement by failing to pay rent and other fees including late fees, bank charges, real estate property taxes and unpaid utilities.” The lawsuit said Thomas hasn’t paid his rent of $10,000 a month since March, 2013 through the end of the year.

Elliott has also separately filed a complaint against Thomas’ entertainment group for the property across the street at 670 Memorial Drive which houses the Bailey Agency, Bailey’s modeling and talent company.

 Thomas has since stated that  the problem is his primary landlord Showtime Cafe for the Bar One property. (Elliott is partial land owner.) Prior to March, he said they had been taking his money for a year and not passing it on to the bank First Fidelity for the mortgage they owe. He said Showtime is in foreclosure proceedings and according to Loopnet, the property was auctioned off in October, 2013 but does not say to whom (Thomas’ attorney recommended he not release the names of the owners of Showtime.) Starting last March, he started placing his rental payments in escrow with his attorney until Showtime straightened out its issues with its bank.

“I’ve been caught in the middle of the crossfire,” Thomas said. In reality, he has no problem financially paying his rent.”

One of the top designers of the decade, Givenchy has named Dallas’ own Erykah Badu as the spokesmodel for their Spring/Summer 2014 campaign.

Designer Riccardo Tisci chose the icon of natural black beauty to represent his upcoming Africa-meets-Japan themed collection.

“Erykah, she’s an icon—come on!” Tisci told Style.com. “She’s one of the most stylish women I’ve met in my life. She’s got such a good sense of proportion, of colors.”

Tisci’s whole collection will feature women of color, despite setbacks like the Barney’s (which carries the brand) racial discrimination scandal earlier this year.

Phaedra Announces That her and Apollo…

On Dec 2, while on the Bethenny Frankel Show, RHOA co-star Phaedra Parks assured fans that her marriage with husband Apollo Nida is “just fine.”

But she also said that definitely thought that her husband was wrong for even entertaining (and texting) co-star Kenya Moore.

“Two inappropriate people acting inappropriately,” is what she called it.

On Dec 12, housewife Cynthia Bailey spoke her opinion about the whole situation on the Bethenny show.

“Obviously, enough happened to for it to get to this point. Kenya definitely insinuated…I’m excited for Phaedra to just “kill it” and move on,” she added.

FYI, Cynthia also assurred us that her thyroid problems “are behind her now,” and her and husband Peter are back having sex “constantly.” Peter looked really amused. lol

Is Julia Roberts Hiding a Baby Bump?

After a couple suspicious pics surfaced online this week, rumors are that Pretty Woman star Julia Roberts is pregnant. Most recently, while with her hubby Danny Moder’s parents home, her belly looked quite pudgy, or maybe even…round. Maybe the star (whose 46)  has just put on a few pounds since she’s not in the public eye as much, but her clothing (recently) has been baggy. And earlier in the week, she actually walked onto the stage at the 2013 BAFTA L.A. Awards (with George Clooney) barefoot! not to mention she was in a baby doll dress. Inside joke maybe? I guess we’ll know soon.

Jay-Z left the building with the most nominations this year, finally! Nine Nominations for Magna Carter, Holy Grail. Meanwhile, Kanye West’s  New Slaves was nominated for Best Rap Song, and his critically-praised  Yeezus was nominated for Best Rap Album (produced by Dallas’ own Symbolc 1,)  althought it was shut out for Album of Year.

Rihanna was nominated for Best Urban Album.

Next in line was Ryan Lewis and Macklemore who killed it with seven nominations for their song Thrift Shop, which is the first song from an independent label to reach No. 1 in 20 years. Justin Timberlake got seven noms for The 20/20 Experience, although he didn’t get a nom for Album of the Year. 

Keith Urban was one of the performers at The GRAMMY Nominations Concert Live! He did  a cover of Bill Withers’ Ain’t No Sunshine alongside R&B singer Miguel.  Urban’s album is No. 1 in three countries and he left with a nod in the Best Country Duo/Group Performance category for Highway Don’t Care, his collaboration with Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift. Swift performed via satellite while on her Red Tour in Australia. The country star scored four nominations, including  Album of the Year, Best Country Album, Best Country Song (Begin Again) and Best Country Duo/Group Performance (Highway Don’t Care). and Katy Perry did her bit live from Toronto And of course, got noms for Roar. Robin Thicke only left with three nominations for Blurred Lines, but gave a great performance with T.I. (No Miley Cyrus this time.)  The most anticipated performance of the night was Lorde singing her song Royal, although she seemed quite ackward onstage. However, she received four noms for the song. Youngster Mack Wilds was also nominated for his single Own It, which we love! Fantasia also received a Best R&B Song nom for Bittersweet. But none for Ciara, as usual.

Surprisingly, neither of Miley’s singles were nominated, maybe with good reason.
