As the coronavirus pandemic continues, more and more Bravolebrities are coming out with their own experiences contracting the virus.
Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jennifer Aydin revealed she had the illness, along with her father and daughter. More recently, Real Housewives of Atlanta alum, Sheree Whitfield contracted it as well. Now another RHOA former star has also divulged their diagnosis.
Cynthia Bailey’s ex-husband, Peter Thomas, revealed in an Instagram video that he has contracted coronavirus. As reported by People, Peter announced his diagnosis on Sunday by telling his fans to take the pandemic seriously.
In the video, Peter is lying in bed and tells us, “I’m in bed, of course. I’ve been in bed now for the last eight days.” He explained his symptoms, saying, “It’s the most excruciating pain I could think of. My stomach [has been] a complete wreck for the last 8 days, pain [and] constant cramping. The pain is crazy. Chills all day and all night.” He goes on to say that he has experienced “cold sweats” and has to “constantly keep my body hydrated.” Peter also said he has no appetite, diarrhea and is throwing up.
He tells us that despite taking a test for coronavirus five times and testing negative, by the sixth time, he tested positive. “I’m going to tell you something, wear your mask, wear gloves and practice social distancing.”
Peter goes on to say that he thinks he contracted the virus after taking photos with fans. “People come up to me and ask me to take pictures all the time and they want me to have the mask off and they want to hug on me and they say they like me. I take those pictures, and every time I take those pictures, I’m praying to God that I don’t get this thing, but it caught up to me.”

Peter laments, “Your body is extremely sensitive, the slightest little thing, it’s constant pain everywhere. I can’t wait for this s— to be over.”
Finally, Peter says of his recovery, “I gotta be in bed for another seven days before they come and take the test again. I have to be negative twice before I can even think about outside. I guess I should be celebrating because here in Miami there’s 260 people dying every day for the last 7 days.” He explained, “I am celebrating because I’m still alive.”
We are wishing Peter a smooth and speedy recovery!
