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.”
