“It’s complicated.” That’s what Cynthia Bailey had to say about her marriage to Peter Thomas. The star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta recently opened up about the turmoil in her marriage and how the couple is not in a “great place” after the fallout from Peter’s cheating scandal.
In a brutally honest interview with Reality Checked, Cynthia said,
“Peter and I are not in a great place right now. Honestly, I don’t know what’s going to happen with us right now. We’re still trying to figure it out. It’s complicated.”
And let’s get real, being on a reality show only adds to the pressure.
“We been married for five years,” Cynthia explained. “We’ve been a couple for eight. We’re the only couple on the Real Housewives of Atlanta that was actually married on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. We’ve never been married outside of the show, and I don’t think that has helped us a lot.”
Even the best marriages struggle from time to time, however, Cynthia feels that everything in her marriage has been “difficult.”
“Maybe if we were married three years before we got on the show that would have been better. I just have nothing compare my marriage to outside of being on the show. It’s just been difficult. Everything about our marriage has been difficult.”
Currently, RHOA star is unsure if she and Peter will survive their troubles, leaving many fans convinced that the two may be calling it quits soon.
“I’ve never said that we were perfect. I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I usually have all the answers for all the questions, but when it comes to my marriage, I just don’t know right now,” Cynthia said. “I just know that it’s not good right now.”
Despite her marriage troubles, things are going well for Cynthia and her eyewear line, so she’s got that going for her. Tell us what you think. Do you think Cynthia will divorce Peter?
