Former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Peter Thomas, is saying that he was actually blindsided by the whole divorce announcement, and while admitting that he’d discussed getting a divorce with Cynthia Bailey, it’s not actually something that he wanted to do.
In early July, Cynthia made the announcement that she no longer wanted to be with Peter, and that she was seeking divorce proceedings, as they didn’t spend enough time together, their personalities were too different, there wasn’t enough chemistry, and they just were compatible altogether.
However, Peter is saying that this is not something he wanted to happen:
It wasn’t something that I wanted. But it is something that I believe she thinks she needs. And honestly, I wish we could have made the public announcement jointly.
Peter then goes on to proclaim his love for Cynthia, and that he’d never cheat on her:
I love Cynthia. I have never cheated on her. She knows this. I have never taken any money from Cynthia. She knows this. I have never done anything, but love and defend my wife. She knows this too.
However, in an interview with E! News, Cynthia says that despite her feelings for Peter, she doesn’t want an ugly divorce, and it’s time to move on:
I don’t want it to be an ugly divorce because I still love Peter.
Even though they’ve said all of this, Peter is on his way back to Bravo and The Real Housewives of Atlanta, undoubtedly so all of the couple’s drama can be caught on camera for the whole world to see.
This is definitely an interesting point, because Peter actually blamed the cameras for causing the couple’s split in the first place:
While the show is not the single contributing factor to the turmoil in our relationship, ‘RHOA’ had a lot to do with it. Reality TV can be a blessing and a curse, as it provides tremendous opportunities, but it also puts one hell of a strain on a relationship, especially if the foundation is not solid.
Even though there’s nothing they can apparently do to save their marriage, Cynthia still wants to be friends with Peter:
I can be a better friend to him at this point in the relationship than I can as his wife.
When a partner says something like that, you know to put a fork in it, because the relation is done.
