Cynthia Bailey has done many things to try and save her marriage on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The season started off with Bailey learning about a video of her husband, grabbing another woman at one of his bars. And the season ended with Bailey trying to save her marriage by giving her husband a massage. And while the season may have ended on a positive note, it sounds like the marriage has taken a turn for the worse since the cameras left Atlanta.
According to a new Bravo report, Cynthia Bailey is now speaking out about the status of her marriage, and it sounds like things are not great. Since the show wrapped, Peter has been spending more time away from the home as he is busy opening up various other sports locations. Plus, the other ladies seem convinced that Thomas is out cheating on his wife, something that Cynthia continues to deny.
“At the finale, what you guys saw, we were definitely at a better place. I will say that Peter and I are not in a great place right now,” Cynthia called in to Reality Checked with Amy Phillips on Radio Andy Tuesday. She admits that things have been better and she isn’t really sure where her marriage is at right now. But Bailey does have one theory as to why things are not good: The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
It’s not that Cynthia Bailey is blaming the reality show for messing up her marriage. Instead, she makes a great point about them not knowing a marriage without the show. The two got married while filming the show, and they haven’t tried to be a married couple without the show. Of course, the cameras aren’t around all the time, but their relationship has been under a microscope since day one. Plus, it doesn’t help that Cynthia’s own family members tried to hide the marriage certificate on the wedding day and even tried to stop the wedding.
“We’ve been married five years. We’ve been together for eight. We’re the only couple on The Real Housewives of Atlanta that was actually 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,” Cynthia explains, adding, “Maybe if we were married three years before we got on the show, that would’ve been better. I just have nothing to compare my marriage to outside of being on the show. It’s just been difficult. I mean, the wedding was difficult. Everything about our marriage has been difficult.”
Cynthia Bailey’s marriage to Peter has been on a rollercoaster since the first day and it sounds like they have periods of ups and downs. And she admits that things are not perfect.
“I never said that we were perfect. I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I usually have all the answers for all the questions, but when it comes to my marriage, I just don’t know right now,” Bailey explains, adding, “I just know that it’s not good right now.”
Bailey did this interview all by herself and Peter wasn’t there to give his side of the story. It sounds like he’s busy launching more bars and clubs. He posted, “Hard day, long day, I hope the night is better. CLUB ONE in 23 days. Never stop, won’t stop, family first” on Instagram, writing that he was putting his family first. But maybe Cynthia isn’t included in that family. He has yet to say anything about his wife’s comments on the radio show, but one can imagine he isn’t happy about his personal life being discussed.
What do you think of Cynthia Bailey’s comments that her marriage isn’t going well? Do you think these two would be better if they were apart?
