The last Real Housewives of Atlanta episode was pretty awkward for Cynthia Bailey. She worked on a business venture with her ex-husband Peter Thomas, who used that as an opportunity to ask questions about Cynthia’s new flame Will Jones. Then Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker questioned Will’s intentions with Cynthia.
The whole episode was total overkill considering that Will wasn’t even Cynthia’s boyfriend at the time and they only went out on a couple of dates. Cynthia was still trying to figure out how she felt about Will, so it was a little too soon for other people to insert their opinions.
The model opened up about the last episode in a Bravo blog post. Cynthia explained, “I invested in Bar One Atlanta when Peter and I were still married. The bar was doing amazing when we closed due to issues beyond our control with the owners from whom we were renting.” Props to her for sticking with her commitment, but it has to be awkward since the divorce still feels so fresh and they are both trying to date other people.
Cynthia continued, “I believe in the Bar One brand, and since I am already invested and a 25% partner, I am excited and looking forward to being a part of the success of opening the Auburn Avenue location. Bar One Charlotte and Club One are doing very well, and I am confident Atlanta will be no different. In my eyes, it’s unfinished business, and I guess you can say I already have some skin in the game.” It also makes for an interesting story line. Well, a semi-interesting story line. I would rather see the ladies arguing than Cynthia’s awkward tension with Peter at a business meeting, but I’ll take what I can get.
Cynthia wrote about her talk with Peter: “Yes, of course it was a little awkward talking to Peter about Will. Although we are divorced and are no longer together, we are still friends. When I met with Peter at Bar One to discuss the plans for the bar, my dating life with Will was already in the blogs and a hot topic on The Wendy Williams Show. So since the information was already out there, I respectfully wanted Peter to also hear it firsthand from me.”
After the hard time that everyone gave Todd when he first started dating Kandi, it was interesting to see him go in on Will. Then again, he is boys with Peter, so he might not have done that otherwise. Cynthia admitted, “Yes, I was surprised that Kandi and Todd gave Will such a hard time. When we all went on the boat ride, Will and I had only been on a few dates and were still getting to know each other.”
She revealed, “He had mentioned the dating shows to me that Kandi brought up, but all this was before we met, so I didn’t really think anything of it. ” She added, “Although I appreciate Todd and Kandi looking out for me, I honestly think Will is a really great guy. My only concern is whether or not he is a great guy for me. However, I must admit that I am having a great time trying to figure that out.”
