Tuesday on “The Real,” Cynthia Bailey from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” got real about her divorce from Peter Thomas, her husband of five years, whom she wed on the reality series’ season 3 finale.
When “The Real” co-host Tamera Mowry inquired if audiences can expect to see her relationship with Thomas unfold on the upcoming season of RHOA, Bailey, 48, responded, “Yes, you will see it play out.”
“Peter and I, we’ve always been very transparent in our relationship and it’s worked for and against us at the same time,” Bailey tells the hosts. “Just being on the show, I think it’s been important for us to just really keep it real, like you guys do.”
“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.
Ever since their marriage in January 2011, Bailey and Thomas have dealt with cheating scandals, squabbles with Bailey’s “Housewives” co-horts and sexual lulls.
“We can’t continue like this. Somebody needs an escape route,” Thomas told Bailey in a season 6 episode of the Bravo show
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 9 premieres Nov. 6 at 8pm ET on Bravo.
