It’s the rare couple that doesn’t run into a few bumps in the road but the marriage between Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas has reached a dead-end.

Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Cynthia Bailey, recently announced plans to divorce her hubby, Peter Thomas, after six years of marriage, unbeknownst to Peter. Apparently, the restaurateur found out with the rest of us that his wife is ready to sign those divorce papers. Ouch!

The Bar One owner claims he had no knowledge of his wife’s plans to go through with a divorce instead of working on their issues.

“Most of the highs and too many of the lows in our relationship have been on display for public consumption and condemnation since we joined the cast in 2010. I say ‘we’ because Cynthia and I came as a package deal. We were in this together. And until July 5th, I thought we were in agreement about our separation until I was flooded with calls, text messages, direct messages, and emails from my closest friends and family members. They were concerned about my well-being after reading news stories and blog posts where my wife says, ‘We are just not going to be married anymore.'”

Thomas explains that due to the couple marrying on the Bravo reality show, their relationship became a fishbowl that deprived them of privacy. 

“On July 24th, Cynthia Bailey and I will be married six years, and for our entire marriage we have been a part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Bravo TV’s most successful reality show. As a result, Cynthia and I have shared almost every aspect of our lives with the millions of RHOA fans. Viewers had a front row seat at our wedding, and watched as we worked to blend our families, personalities, and business ventures.”

The Atlanta couple dealt with their biggest scandal when a video surfaced of Peter engaged in “inappropriate” behavior with an unidentified woman. Peter maintains his innocence. 

“I love Cynthia. I have never cheated on her. She knows this. I have never taken money from Cynthia. She knows this. I have never done anything, but love and defend my wife. She knows this too.”

Peter does acknowledge that Cynthia is ready to move on.

“When we got married, divorce was never an option, at least not for me. I am not sure where our relationship went left for her, or perhaps it was never really there. I’ve always been here for Cynthia, even though she is fiercely independent. I want her to be happy. I want her to win, and I am happy she has seemingly found peace. In the meantime, I will continue to distract myself by growing and expanding my businesses. Charlotte, North Carolina has been great to Peter Thomas and I am so appreciative to the Queen City for all their support. Bar One Atlanta will be opening before the end of 2016.”

Do you think it’s time for the couple to call it quits, or should these two give love another try? Sound off in the comments below.
