Fans of the Real Housewives of Atlanta have seen the ups and downs of Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas’ marriage. From her mother holding the marriage license hostage to now an assault case in the midst, these two cannot seem to catch a break. In an exclusive interview with OK! Magazine, Cynthia spoke out about the incident and where her marriage stands now.
“It’s an unfortunate situation. Now even though he’s innocent, he still has to go through the process of going to court or whatever. It’s still just less time that he can focus on work and focus on me because now he’s got to deal with that situation.”
Though Peter is charged with simple assault by reportedly coming after a patron in his Charlotte venue, Cynthia is not blaming her husband.
“Because of Peter’s businesses, he’s very accessible,” she said. “People can walk into Sports One, and of course he has to be a host to some degree—he’s going to be pleasant to people who support his bar.”
She continued, “But sometimes there’s a situation where the whole fan part of it, some of the fans can get a little aggressive or a little comfortable. I think this is a situation where one of his fans just got a little too comfortable and he really just kind of got up in Peter’s personal space.”
“Lord knows what can happen when you get into somebody’s personal space too much,” she continued. “And he was talking some little kind of crazy stuff to the point where Peter definitely felt like he needed to push him away from him because he was like kind of leaning into him too close. Some of the things he was saying were definitely aggressive.”
So how is Cynthia feeling towards her husband with not only dealing with this case, but spending most of his time in Charlotte for his business?
“Marriage is hard,” she said. “It’s definitely not the ideal situation to be in. It’s kind of nice—no matter how busy you are—to sleep in the same bed at night.
