Kenya Moore Shares Her Thoughts On Cynthia Bailey’s Divorce


Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is revealing what went through her head when her close friend Cynthia Bailey shared that she would be divorcing her husband Peter Thomas after six years of marriage.

“I think that Cynthia has to do what’s right for Cynthia. If that means staying with Peter and that makes her happy, I’m happy for her. If that means divorcing Peter, and that makes her happy, I’m behind her,” Kenya recently told The Daily Dish. “I think that it’s a personal choice. I have nothing to say either way as long as my friend who I love is happy.”

But Moore admits she wasn’t completely surprised about the news. “I don’t think that Cynthia announcing that she was divorcing was surprising to me because I just knew a lot of how her marriage was going. Of course we talk on and off-camera. We’re really friends. We hang out together, whether there’s a camera around or not,” Kenya explained. “It was just a personal choice, and I just had to support her either way.”

Kenya explained that Bailey has good days and bad days as she goes through the divorce process. “With anyone who’s going through a divorce, there are so many colors and layers. I think at some point you’re upset, some point you’re sad, some point you’re happy, some point you’re not sure whether or not you want to go through with it. I think it’s just a gamut of emotions that you go through. I don’t know if you know what it is unless you’re actually going through it,” Kenya said. “So for me, I just wanted to support her in whatever capacity that I could.”

It appears Cynthia and Kenya are closer than ever, despite NeNe Leakes questioning their friendship status. “I think that Cynthia is and will be one of my best friends,” Kenya said. “I think that we just don’t get caught up on the words anymore. I know she loves me like a sister, I love her like a sister, and I think as long as we just support each other, the words are not important.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

  • I hope Kenya will be a true friend for Cynthia. I think most of us have gone through a divorce and it is horrible. I will be very surprised however if Peter however, doesn’t go spousal support.

    I agree with Sheree, Kenya Moore is delusional when she speaks of friendship. She will eventually do something to destroy that friendship.

    I am not sure if Kenya can be anyone’s true friend, but for now, if she can be there for Cynthia when she needs support, then I think that is great, though maybe she is just writing about it and not really doing it as much as she says. I don’t know for sure.
    I like Cynthia. I think she fell hard for Peter, but he was not the one for her. She ruled with her heart, and now she is using her mind a bit more. It still hurts. I wish her well. I hope she will stay single for a while and just enjoy life without Peter in it so much. She wants to be friends with Peter, but I think Peter knows how to say just the right words to get to Cynthia..in the wrong way. He has never respected her enough. He is not a nice person. He is a user, and he has taken more from Cynthia than he has ever given her in my opinion.

    Kenya’s only friend is Kenya; that’s the only person she truly loves.
