I can’t be the only once fascinated by Cynthia’s desire and ability to be friends with an ex. I’m loving Noelle Robinson‘s increased presence on the show, so I’m not ready for her to move so I can’t imagine how her own mother feels. Cynthia opened up about both of these relationships and what we saw during the show’s latest episode.
Since her marriage was a disaster, Cynthia Bailey assumed her divorce would be a happy land of friendship, promises of everlasting love, and compromise. I think she forgot she’s divorcing Peter Thomas.
When Cynthia learned her spurned ex had reached out to her sister Malorie for guidance she was definitely “surprised.” After all, Mal tried to sabotage the wedding, and Mal and Peter have never exactly been friends. Crisis brings people together, I suppose…
I was surprised she asked her mother that (especially on camera) and I could tell Cynthia was completely floored that her daughter thought that was the case. It was very clear that Cynthia was thrown off. Now that that the scene has aired, I could not help being curious about Cynthia feels about it.
With season nine of The Real Housewives of Atlanta coming to our TV screens this Sunday, we are looking forward to new drama from the familiar faces we’ve grown to love (and scream at) for years. Although there won’t be any new women, there will be new alliances, new divorces, and some fresh shade. Based on the previews alone, this looks like a season not to be missed.
Despite Peternot wanting the divorce, Cynthia says things are moving along without issue. “It’s going to be a pretty simple divorce. We’re doing a settlement agreement,” she explained. “We don’t have children together. We’re not fighting over custody.” Or money apparently? Peter currently lives in Charlotte to focus on his burgeoning bar empire there, and Cynthia is still in Atlanta. They’re selling the home they lived in as a couple.
Will we see the demise of her marriage to Peter play out on this season of RHOA? “Yes, you will see it play out. Peter and I have always been very transparent in our relationship and it’s worked for us and against us at the same time. But, just being on the show, I think it’s important for us to keep it real, like you guys do [laughs]. So, yes you will see it play out and um, it’s kind of hard because we got married on the show. We’re the only couple that actually got married on The Real Housewives of Atlanta and to have to go to through, you know, a divorce on the show, it’s not easy, but I think the only thing more tragic than divorce is being in something that’s not working anymore.”
Cute dogs, cute couple, and colorful autumn leaves..what’s not to love about this picture?! I don’t get the chance to say that too often while compiling this Twitter and Instagram pictures post every week, but credit where credit is due: Million Dollar Listing New York star Fredrik Eklund does social media right. Fredrik shared the pic above of himself and Derek, adding, “I love this little family.” #AllTheFeels
