Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas are moving forward with their divorce. The model turned reality TV star came on The Real to confirm that the former couple were moving ahead with their split and that it would play out in front of the Real Housewives Of Atlanta cameras.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Real, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star discusses her marriage and separation from her husband of five years, whom she wed on the reality series’ season 3 finale.
Asked by host Tamera Mowry if audiences can expect to see her relationship with Thomas unfold on the upcoming season of RHOA, Bailey, 48, reveals, “Yes, you will see it play out.”
“So yes, you will see it play out. And, it’s kind of hard because we got married on the show — we’re actually the only couple who got married on The Real Housewives of Atlanta — and to have to go through a divorce on the show is not easy, but I think the only thing more tragic than divorce is being in something that’s not working anymore,” Bailey believes.
The couple’s marriage struggles have been no secret to audiences on the Bravo series. Since tying the knot in January 2011, Bailey and Thomas have weathered cheating scandals, squabbles with Bailey’s pals and sexual lulls. In season 6, Thomas told Bailey: “We can’t continue like this. Somebody needs an escape route.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta season 9 premieres Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
