Thomas is vying to turn up the drama at his upscale Atlanta lounge, Bar One, after seeing the success of Vanderpump Rules, which was based around the drama at The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star’s restaurant SUR Lounge, a source told Radar.
“He has started shooting the spin-off, but it hasn’t actually been picked up,” the source said.
“They had all the windows blocked off because it was daytime and the shoot was supposed to be at night,” the onlooker revealed.
Thomas, who has been caught in numerous confrontations and brawls this season on RHOA, most recently drawing the ire of the show’s focal point, NeNe Leakes, who claimed the significant other was too quick to insert himself into conflicts concerning the women.
“You need to stay out of f***ing women’s business,” Leakes, currently taking center stage on Dancing with the Stars, told the ambitious bar owner. “What we do as women is between us — you stop trying to be a damn b*tch!”
The silver fox claims the men are driving up the show’s currently hot ratings, and he knows what sells.
“The fact is that now that the men on the show have a voice, one million people is [sic] watching the show than last year, that equal $$$,” he wrote on Twitter, before retweeting a fan who said Thomas “knows how to play the game called ‘reality TV.'”
The show has already spawned spin-offs such as I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding and The Kandi Factory.
