The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Cynthia Bailey has had enough and it appears that plans for divorce are on the horizon. Last season on The Real Housewives of Atlanta we all watched as Cynthia’s marriage to Peter Thomas unraveled before the cameras. The couple dealt with alleged infidelity, living apart most of the season, and Cynthia admitting to her sister that she was no longer attracted to her husband. We watched this couple go through so many trials and tribulations, but we were still rooting for them to make it.
Unfortunately, it appears that this couple will not stand the test of time. While at the Essence Festival this past weekend, Cynthia told E! News exactly where she and Peter stand. Here’s what she had to say:
“I want to take some time for myself. I think the time apart has been good for him as well. It wasn’t like I had to do it right this second but the more we got used to not being together and living together, the easier this divorce is going to be. I don’t want it to be an ugly divorce because I still love Peter. I just don’t want to be married to Peter anymore.
It’s as simple as that. I still root for him. I want him to win. I still love and support him. We are just not going to be married anymore.
Regardless of if we were on the show or not, our issues would have happened anyways because it’s just personalities and it’s just chemistry and it’s also compatibility. I am really optimistic that in the end, after we take some time, we are going to be friends at the end of this because that was the start.”
Well, it looks as though Cynthia has secured her Georgia peach for next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. What do you think of the couple splitting? Are you surprised by the news or was it expected?
