Did reality TV destroy Peter Thomas and Cynthia Bailey’s marriage? Speculation is mounting that the celebrity couple is headed for divorce after Bailey confirmed what everyone knew for months: the couple are officially separated.
“I am definitely taking some time to myself to figure out how I want to move forward. I don’t want to rush into anything, so I think this time apart is good for us,” Cynthia told The Daily Dish. “And I think the space apart, I think he can appreciate it as well. I think it gives people time to think and process and just move forward in a way that really is healthy for everyone involved.”
The couple’s efforts to keep their marriage afloat while living in separate cities–Cynthia in Atlanta, where she owns a business; and Peter in Charlotte, where he operates a restaurant–has played prominently in the couple’s joint storyline on Real Housewives of Atlanta for two consecutive seasons.
The couple has previously admitted that being on reality TV has not helped them navigate challenging times in their relationship.
Hopefully, the two of them will work it out.
