Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey has confirmed that she and her husband Peter Thomas have separated. Bailey told Bravo’s The Daily Dish on Tuesday, “Peter and I are separated. He lives in Charlotte, and I live in Atlanta.”
The news comes on the heels of a tumultuous season 8 for the couple. Camera’s caught the two trying to work out their marriage after video surfaced of Thomas flirting with a woman in a night club back in June 2015.
Bailey, who admitted on the show that she wanted some time apart, also said she and Thomas are trying to figure out what’s next for their relationship. “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,” she said. “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.”
Cynthia said she doesn’t yet know what the future holds for her and Peter, but she is confident that he will still be in her life. “Regardless of where I am with Peter, he is my husband. I will always love him, and I will always support him. And I believe he feels the same about me,” Cynthia explained. “Whether or not we decide to stay married or not, that’s something that we have to decide soon. But right now, I’m enjoying the time apart, taking time for myself.”
Bailey and Thomas wed in 2010. The 48-year-old model has a daughter, 16, with actor Leon.
