The Real Housewives of Atlanta - Season 8

More divorce-not-divorced drama for Real Housewives Of Atlanta stars – this time it’s Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas‘ turn to ‘pretend’ to get divorced.

Cynthia’s attorney, Daniel Meachum, reveals that, despite what we saw on last night’s episode, Cynthia and Peter are not yet legally divorced according to the courts.

In fact, Fulton County Superior Court records show that Cynthia and Peter only filed on February 21 – of this year! Although they’ve been legally separated for 9 months. So does that mean, that as of last night’s episode, Cynthia had only signed separation documents?

Her attorney couldn’t reveal why Cynthia and Peter refrained from officially filing until this year, but AJC.com reports that there are “no major disputes” over real estates, property, or finances – because yes, it is an amicable split between the couple.

With that, Cynthia’s attorney expects the courts to finalize the divorce – like finally for real finalize it – later this month.

Let’s hope Peter doesn’t pull an Apollo Nida and re-file, or something!

Why did Cynthia lie?! Especially when coming down on Phaedra Parks for the very same thing! Why not just explain that she and Peter are legally separated while working out the particulars? It’s not as if Cynthia was expecting to reunite with Peter – actually the paperwork she filed with the court, where Cynthia is listed as the plaintiff, specifies, “There are no prospects for reconciliation.”
