Call it a spring break of sorts. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey exclusively tells Us Weekly that she is focusing her attention on her daughter and herself amid rumors that she and her husband, Peter Thomas,have split and are headed for a divorce.
“I am spending time with my daughter, and taking some time for myself,” the reality star, 48, tells Us. “Whatever the future holds for my marriage, I have given over to God. I appreciate everyone’s kind words and prayers.”
A source confirms to Us that Bailey and Thomas, 56, are living separately and have been for several months, with Bailey in Atlanta and Thomas in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“It’s been a lot of problems over the years and it’s just gotten worse,” the source says. “You’ve seen it all play out on the show. She’s just over it. It’s not just the alleged cheating, it’s everything. There have been problems all along. He’s really trying to talk it out but it seems to be it for Cynthia. It’s not going to last.”
The reality TV couple dated for three years before tying the knot in 2011. Their problems began after Thomas was spotted getting close to another woman in an Instagram video last June, and their struggle to save their marriage has been documented on the most recent season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
On Tuesday, she told SiriusXM’s Reality Checked With Amy Phillips that the pair haven’t been in a good place for a while.
“At the time of the finale and what was filmed, we were in a better place. I will say now that Peter and I are not in a great place,” she said. “We are not in a great place. Honestly, I don’t know what’s going to happen with us right now, we’re still trying to figure it out.… We’re the only couple on the Real Housewives of Atlanta that was married on the Real Housewives of Atlanta. We’ve never been married outside of the show, and I don’t think that has helped us a lot.”
Bailey has one daughter, Noelle Robinson, from her previous relationship with actor Leon Robinson.
