Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey is confirming that her divorce from Peter Thomas has been finalized.
“Yes, I am officially divorced, and I have officially started dating,” she told The Daily Dish.
“It feels like it’s finally official,” she said. “I feel like I’ve been talking about my divorce for a very long time. You know, we’ve been separated for over a year, and just this whole process has been a lot, just mentally and emotionally, and I’m not saying, ‘Yay, I’m so happy to be divorced, but I’m kind of saying, ‘Yay, I’m so happy that it’s finally over.'”
Viewers have watched Cynthia go through her divorce on this season of RHOA. “I feel good about it. I felt like Peter and I did this with a lot of respect and integrity and class. And that’s what I wanted. I love Peter. I’m always gonna love him. I’m always gonna support him. A lot of amazing things came out of our marriage, and that’s what I choose to focus on and to remember,” Cynthia explained. “So when I look back, I feel like this is one of the things that I’m probably most proud of, having the most peaceful reality TV divorce ever, probably.”
Cynthia admits Peter could have handled the divorce better at times. “I think I probably handled it better than he did. He did try a couple times, but he brought it back in. Yeah, I think I’m the real MVP in this whole divorce thing more than him,” she said. “But he was good. He reciprocated my energy, and he responded to the light and love that I was giving him.”
Overall, Bailey is happy and optimistic about the future. “We’re cool. We’re not on the phone every day talking, but I think that we’re friends, but we’re good,” Cynthia shared. “I wish him well, I wish him love again, and I hope that he wishes me well.”
