A loyal reader emailed me to ask why I never covered the Peter Thomas/ Uptown scandal. the answer is: I couldn't care less. I guess I have other things going on in my life that take precedence over worrying about nobodies and what they're up to.
Anyway, my reader accuses Thomas of not paying his workers when Uptown Restaurant was open. She also says Bravo network hired stand-ins to act as employees of Uptown, which was closed 6 months ago.

Your stuff is always FIRE! However, Im curious as to why you have not address Peter Thomas the con man that is NOT the owner of Uptown Restaurant and Lounge, everyone (except the chick he married) knows his game..... The place is closed I personally saw a marshal's eviction note slapped on the door ---- when it was open there was always bs, this dude would not pay the people who worked there.
Imagine working for 2 weeks, and being told: "you started on an off pay week, payday is in two MORE weeks for you." You could wait it out for 2 more weeks, and on payday he has another lie, or just doesnt show up! Eventually the staff (one by one) would quit and he would just replace them, with another naive cocktail waitress. (Oh he is goooooood at what he does: CONS) -The "staff" on tv tonight were Bravo stand-ins as they did not work there... Too funny!
Im sure he hoped to capitalize on celebrities being in town for the BET hip hop awards. He has never owned ish..just a front for the real owner (Uptown is OWNED by a retired nfl player .... Research the spots he claims to have owned in other markets (NYC, LA, MIA etc)! He will "do the town" and get run out of town. He usually dates "celebrity woman" to use them for who they know and of course their money!
Cadillac Kimberly was right: there is nothing Real about this show! He claims to have been an executive at Def Jam..... more lies. He is NOT an executive at anything. There are a million pending lawsuits, people would come to the club to serve him all day every day -- he doesnt care due to the fact that is NOT HIS PROPERTY HE OWNS NOTHING!!!!!!! Fraud, Phony, BS! This spot for the longest didn't even have a liquor license and was shut down because of that, he just would reopen and buy liquor himself - ILLEGAL IN GA!!!!!!!!
I heard Bravo peeps "had enough" and wanted a real married couple......... and he desperately needed the money so.......... wha-la, opportunity a knocking! He only would hire woman, because he knew he would take advantage of them! A real punk!
Ruby kisses for you, love what you do, cuz you bring it to us first!
