Cynthia Bailey wants to find her true love
Cynthia revealed to the weekly magazine that she wants the love of her life to come quickly. She said, “I know that God has someone out there for me, I need to bring him this way soon enough.”
The 55-year-old seems to be putting herself out there already. A few weeks ago, she hit the town with her friend Kenya Moore.
The actress also shared that she doesn’t have to get married again. Cynthia was previously married to Peter Thomas for seven years.
Their relationship was well documented on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. They had a rocky start from the beginning. Cynthia’s mother and her sister even considered hiding her marriage license so that she wouldn’t marry Peter.
Cynthia told Page Six that Peter reached out to her when he heard she was getting a divorce. She said, “He said he just wishes me the best. He told me I was a queen and that I deserve the best, so that was really, really nice.”
Peter will be making a cameo appearance in the current season of The Real Housewives of Potomac.
