Cynthia Bailey: ‘Inappropriate’ Cheating Video Is Not Enough To Divorce Peter Thomas (Video)
Inappropriate actions are not enough for Cynthia Bailey to divorce her husband, Peter Thomas. Bailey gave her “divorce is not an option statement” after a video surfaced showing Thomas touching and kissing another woman.
Don’t expect Cynthia Bailey to leave her man because of his inappropriate conduct. In 2008, amidst cheating and open marriage rumors, Will Smith appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he said no matter what goes on in his marriage with Jada Pinkett Smith, divorce is simply not an option. The actor said:
“What I found is divorce just can’t be an option. It’s really that simple… there are so many options. So a huge part of the success for [Jada] and I is that we just removed the other options.”
Earlier this week, a very inappropriate and cringeworthy video featuring Cynthia Bailey’s much older husband, Peter Thomas, surfaced on the internet. The brief clip, which was filmed at Thomas’ Bar One in Atlanta, shows him whispering, kissing and touching a woman’s shoulders and breasts.
Seeing this is the second time that Peter Thomas has been embroiled in a cheating scandal, many expected The Real Housewives of Atlanta star to finally pack up all of her wigs and hats and file for divorce. Nope, not happening.
Cynthia Bailey has issued several statements and done multiple interviews saying that divorce is not an option. The reality star said:
“My marriage is not perfect. We’re going to deal with this issue as husband and wife. Most marriages go through their share of challenges, and ups and downs. Peter and I are no exception. I felt the video was inappropriate, and embarrassing. I expect him to accept full accountability for his actions. We are coming up on our five-year wedding anniversary and we will deal with this situation as husband and wife. I appreciate everyone’s well wishes, and concerns.”
Mr. Cynthia Bailey is defending himself by blaming his slippery hands on the Internet. He claimed:
“There’s stuff all over Instagram that makes me look like a big ass cheater. That’s not what it is. That’s a friend of mine at a club that I was talking to. Looks crazy — I know it does, so I’m apologizing to my wife. I’m apologizing to my two beautiful daughters…daddy’s not a cheater.”
Bailey sat down on V-103 Wednesday, where she explained that she is not leaving her spouse just because he was filmed touching another woman:
“I wasn’t there.When I saw the video I thought it was inappropriate…but I’m not going to set his clothes on fire, but we’re going to talk about some things…I’m going to need him to be a little more careful with who he’s kissing on or looking like he’s kissing on or putting his hands on the neck or grazing their breast.”
