Well it’s bottle popping time! The Real Housewives of Atlanta’sCynthia Baileyand the show’s alum, NeNe Leakes have mended their broken friendship and are now in a better place, or so it seems. On Sunday night’s RHOA episode, the show’s former “IT” diva, NeNe, appeared on Cynthia’s doorstep in her usual grand fashion and overdone from head-to-toe.
When Ms. Leakes, along with her shiny long blond tresses, skin-fitting designer duds and husband Greg Leakes in tow, rang Cynthia and Peter Thomas’s doorbell, she then greeted them boisterously. During NeNe’s catty commentary for the segment, she proclaims with a beaming oversized toothy grin, “Yes bitches, I am back!” She then gives RHOA co-star Kandi Burrussa dig, then announces to all of her haters, “Pick your faces up off the floor, she’s back,” followed by a quick fingersnap.
Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter Thomas has largely become her main storyline on this season’s Real Housewives of Atlanta. Will they last? Will they fall apart? Will Peter refrain from getting involved in womens’ business long enough to pretend to be a recommitted husband? Despite the real issues at stake (so Cynthia claims), the drama surrounding the couple’s relationship sometimes come off as manufactured at best, and boring at worst.
About the status of her marriage,Cynthia shares, “One day at a time… we did just celebrate our five-year anniversary. It feels more like 20 years because we got married on the show. I feel like we’re super super married because we were married in real life, we were married on TV, we’re very married.”
“Peter is very romantic and always goes out of his way to make our special moments together memorable,” gushed Cynthia. “I especially loved our “lunch in the park” date because although it was well thought out, it was really sweet and simple. As a matter of fact (after being married for five years), this was one of my favorite dates. Spending quality time together does not always require all the bells and whistles. Sometimes less is so much more.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Nida didn’t mince words when he went on Instagram to let ‘er rip about his feelings towards Peter. “CRAZY WORLD RIGHT!! I GUESS IT’s TRUE THAT IN TIME ONE WILL SEE WHOM THEIR FAKE FRIENDS REALLY ARE!!” Peter apparently saw the rant and wasted no time in responding to the man, whom he still considered to be a friend stating, “Wow!! Fake friend, never that, my number hasn’t change. Still holding it down for everyone I love, including you my brother @apollonida03.”
Post-confrontation, Cynthia shares, “I was shell shocked, and honestly could not believe what had just happened. I didn’t know what to do, and I felt lost in the moment. This was my first physical altercation, and before I could process or react, the fight ended as quickly as it had started. An argument is one thing, but to actually get physical with another woman is a disgraceful situation.”
But first, Cynthia weighed in on her talk with Kandi Burruss, “I enjoy talking to Kandi because she is level headed, rational, and doesn’t sensationalize things. I knew that Peter and I had just celebrated our five year anniversary, but did not think about the five year hump that marriages go through until Kandi brought it up.” Oh, the delusion. News flash Cynthia: your marriage suffers from a “hump” problem, allegedly, but not of the “five year” variety.
Cynthia concluded, “My conversation with her reminded me that no marriage is perfect, most have issues, and we were not alone in our struggles.”
