Peter Thomas responded Tuesday to a newly released video showing the RHOA husband getting a little too close for comfort with another woman in a club. He took to Instagram to issue his wife, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey, a heartfelt apology, but then deleted the apology video without explanation.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, a newly released video posted Monday on The Shade Room’s Instagram account shows Peter Thomas cozying up to a young female in a club. It appeared from the physical contact between Thomas and the woman that the two know each other quite well.
Peter Thomas took to Instagram on Tuesday to issue an apology to Cynthia Bailey and his daughters for what he says just “looked crazy,” but really isn’t because the woman is just a friend.
These people, my 5 years anniversary is next month and everybody been trying to trip my ass up for… https://t.co/mFaSsQrOKo

He subsequently deleted the video from his Instagram account, but not before other users had a chance to snag the video and publish it.
“There’s stuff all over Instagram that make me look like a big a** cheater. Okay. That’s not what it is. That’s a friend of mine in a club that I was talking to. It looks crazy. I know it does. So I’m apologizing to my wife. I’m apologizing to my two beautiful daughters. Okay. Daddy’s not a cheater.”
Rumors have circulated for years that Peter Thomas is a cheater, and was again a topic of discussion between Porsha Williams and Phaedra Parks during the seventh season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Ahead of the Season 7 three-part reunion show, Thomas took to social media to proclaim his innocence, as the Inquisitr reported.
“My baby is killing them, most beautiful, most elegant, extremely classy, yes I am lucky, that’s why it’s funny when people talk about me f***ing this up, our five year anniversary is in three months watch out world here we come.”
As the Inquisitr reported last week, Cynthia Bailey has been asked to return to the show for its upcoming eighth season, although whether she will be a full-time cast member or just make guest appearances is still unclear. Could this be a ploy put on by the RHOA couple to ensure Cynthia Bailey has a more juicy story line than in previous years and secure her spot as a full-time cast member?
Although Cynthia has not publicly commented about the recent cheating rumors, nor the video, she did make her Instagram account private early Tuesday afternoon.
