I think it’s safe to say that The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey is enjoying her single life right now. She’s got a new house, a few different businesses and a successful reality show. She weighs in this week to deny Peter Thomas‘ claims that she didn’t believe in him during their marriage and to share thoughts on the RHOA men staying tight with Apollo Nida.
Cynthia started off sharing that she wasn’t shocked to see that Peter has kept in close contact with Apollo Nida and she’s sure Apollo appreciates it. “I was not surprised to hear that Peter and Apollo kept in touch. I knew that they were in regular communication with each other, but I did not know how frequently they spoke. Apollo, Todd, and Peter are friends. Under the unfortunate circumstances, I would imagine that their friendship and support means the world to him.”
Unfortunately, many Real Housewives of Atlanta fans weren’t stunned when Cynthia Baileyfiled for divorce from husband Peter Thomas. The writing had been on the wall for a long time. Nevertheless, it did seem like the couple was trying their best to work through their differences. Cynthia’s costar Kenya Moore opened up about the divorce and why she wasn’t as shocked as other people might have been.
I mean, they are good friends, so it make sense that Kenya would have more personal insight than the rest of us, but are they best friends? We all remember that debacle last year when Cynthia pulled a two-faced move when NeNe Leakes returned and said she and Kenya weren’t “best friends.” So, where do Kenya and Cynthia stand today? Did they get past all of that nonsense with the friendship titles from last year?
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.
