Peter Thomas is still being detained in a Miami jail after he was taken into custody at the Miami International Airport last week on an outstanding arrest warrant for writing bad checks in Louisiana.

The part-time Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member issued a statement via his publicist denying the charges on Monday.

"I understand the seriousness of the allegations that have been filed against me, however the allegations are false," he said. "I do have faith in the judicial process and have no doubt that I will be acquitted from any wrong doing [sic]. While I can offer no further information about this incident, I will say that my attorney is handling this matter expeditiously."

The 58-year-old businessman was in Miami to attend the opening of a nightclub last week.

Fellow RHOA co-star NeNe Leakes commented on Thomas's arrest on an episode of Watch What Happens: Live with Andy Cohen.

"I've been out of the country, honey, so I don't get the news," the 51-year-old mother-of-2 told Cohen.

"You were in Canada, sweetie, they get the news," Cohen responded sarcastically.

"Now that you are telling me, my reaction is, wow. Amazing," NeNe said.

Cohen reminded NeNe that she last saw Thomas in Miami when she attended a New Year's Eve event.

"I did. I love Peter," she said.

Thomas is being held without bond pending extradition to Louisiana.

  • Joy King

    I doubt he owns anything, if he’s running around writing bad checks. I hate to say it but Peter might just be a straight up fraud. His whole life is probably smoke and mirrors. It might be why Cynthia had no choice but to divorce him. He was probably about to steal her last breath.

  • Bossy704

    Him and Jussie with them checks. I haven't seen a check in years.

  • GAPeach

    The only people I ever see using checks are old white ladies in Publix.

  • EMILY POST

    People still take checks from individuals... LOL

  • Bonita

    I never liked Peter either. I always got a con and opportunistic vibe from him.

  • Daryl Campbell

    Damn Pete, at 58 you gotta do better integrity is everything.

  • NaeNay

    Brash V2.0 - did you accept cash, certified check or money order from Mr. Thomas before agreeing to do that press release? And will you only accept the above mentioned payments from him going forward until he is proven innocent for issuing bad checks?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  • dontgetblocked

    Peter has a shady history. He's guilty and will do some time.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Check-writing fraud is one of the easiest crimes for you to get caught doing. You're literally giving them a paper trail to catch you. Clearly Peter ain't too bright.

  • Logan Roberts

    I know Cynthia and her sister somewhere softly laughing. He had a good woman and took her for granted. If I was Cynthia I'll change my number, no jail calls accepted here homie.

    He might leave the country, go back to Jamaica

    *sips ?? * girl you right.

  • Faux Gibbler

    All his businesses fail.

  • HoneyHitchcock

    This may be Peter’s opportunity for the come up with Nene. She keeps talking about leaving Greg. He probably sees her as a moose shaped piggy bank. Just a thought.....you never know.

  • Faux Gibbler

    Preach. Thank you.

  • Faux Gibbler

    So much for prison / jail reform. I can’t believe they holding him and no bail tho.
    I can’t stop laughing at that statement calling himself the star of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Look at the main photo on top. ?

    He wrote a check for

    Memo: Training, nutrition. Ha ha

  • Logan Roberts

    Chile you're right, knowing Cynthia she'll probably "lend" him some money for an attorney.

  • Alextra Ballard

    What did Cynthia ever see in Peter...he ain’t bad lookin...but yew can see this fool was flawed.

  • XoXo

    He probably can’t even spell integrity!

    ROFL! girl it seemed like it!

  • Reenaface

    Oh can it Nene with the fake sympathy after you acted a whole ass fool on the latest episode of RHOA. This woman and I use that term lightly is so detached emotionally from Gregg, the last thing she should be doing is commenting or other people's problems. She needs to clean her own house first.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Cold Busted!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Greg has cancer. It may be hard of her. I have been through something lately & the pain is excruciating. In theory, I never thought it would feel like this. People really do cope differently.

  • Reenaface

    Gonna disagree with you on this, I am aware that people deal with health matters differently but Nene is detached emotionally because Gregg's illness is cramping her style.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I hope not.

  • Truth7981

    And who is the publicist Bernie madoff?

  • Truth7981

    The fact this man is still in jail..

  • Truth7981

    Ask a 4 yr old for a piece of a cookie, that's how slow the person he wrote that check to should have accepted it.

  • Truth7981

    Sorry to hear you are going through a bad time love. I pray you to have peace and help moving forwards. I watched as my aunt took care of both my grandparents when they were passing. She loved them but still talk about how much her life she gave up on them. My grandmother accused her of stealing, trying to kill her and everything else under the sun. That shit ain't easy.

  • Renita

    And sad to say she's tired of that "old" man wanting to get some with his colonoscopy bag. Nene already has a younger man...

  • Renita

    I hope they say the amount of the check.

  • Truth7981

    Same thing I saw in my ex-husband. Hell, we all have been duped, fooled and bamboozled by someone who claims to love us. If you haven't, shit i feel for you. Easy to be busted on your ass and move on when your young, hard as hell to move forward when you old. Shit, you can't tell me all these single parents chose to be that way. Nope God gives us a couple of things one is love. And she indeed loved Peter. Now what Peter chose to do with it, that's on him. Funny enough karma has his ass sending messages with a #2 pencil, smoking bats while eating a choke sandwich.

  • Truth7981

    Baby the only star he needs to talk about is the star he needs to make a wish on.

  • Truth7981

    Too soon to ask Phaedra for legal advice?

  • Trace da Ace

    Ha Ha....I love it when Andy shades folks....NeNe knows good and well she knew what was going on......she better go bail her buddy out the clank!! lol...folks be killing me...

  • indano

    Sure Nene!!! Seems like everyone close to you just happen to be arrested for bad checks or theft by check.

    "Hear ye, hear ye!" .Read all about it.

    Nene Leakes Rumored Ex-Boyfriend Charles Grant Arrested For Check Fraud.
    NeNe Leakes’ Son Bryson Bryant Arrested – Check Forgery.

    Greg Leakes arrested in 2002 for writing bad checks, shoplifting, assault, and receiving stolen property, (with all due respect)

    Watch the show some time, you'll see.

  • Reenaface

    I'm saying though....

  • Reenaface

    I side eyed Nene when she was complaining about Gregg not wanting to meet up with her at the bar to hang out. Well, if he's in and out of the hospital with blood clots how is he going to summon up the strength to walk down the street to meet her at the local hole in a wall bar.

  • sweetae99

    Receipts to me.....

  • Dee Mitchel

    Come clean Peter, just check fraud would not have you locked up this long. You own and operate to many clubs to be short on cash

  • yvette46

    She was only in Canada thats right across the street from Seattle get out of here..

  • Jayde da Blade

    Greg went to jail for the same shit that's probably why she ain't got that much to say her and Greg ain't that straight and narrow

  • Reenaface

    I wouldn't be surprised if she already has a younger man. These reality shows with these fake ass relationships kill me.
