According to the odds, sharing the limelight with your spouse as a reality TV star front and center while being watched by of plenty of silver screen fanfare is not a good idea if you seek a strong and successful marriage.
There are many cases in point, which go a long way to legitimize this trend. NeNe Leakes, an established American $ex symbol and Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) co-star exhibited her ex-husband Greg Leakes in front of a legion of RHOA viewers on syndicated television.
However, NeNe’s marriage eventually went on to fail miserably. Here’s another example. Cynthia Bailey (pictured right) is another sexy and successful co-star of RHOA that showed off her former husband Peter Thomas (pictured left) under the bright lights of mainstream programming of reality TV.
But Thomas and Bailey’s union of holy matrimony also fell victim to the short-lived bliss that befalls a sizable amount of celebrity marriages. Being in the spotlight while showcasing your love alongside someone else in front of a large, trivial audience is a tall task.
Back in April 2016, rumors that were circulating about Cynthia Bailey’s marriage coming to an end turned out to be true. This story was previously covered here on HealthyBlackWoman.com. Fans of RHOA adored this highly chronicled couple prior to their marriage officially coming to an end.
However, Essence Magazine published an article very recently, which quoted Cynthia as saying that she still loves Peter regardless of the fact that they have ended their union. E! Entertainment Television conducted an exclusive interview with Cynthia at the recent Essence Music Festival. She shared a lot with them about the failed marriage to her ex-husband.
Cynthia and Peter’s marriage wasn’t televised on RHOA, but they became popular regulars on the show after they tied the knot. “I don’t want it to be an ugly divorce because I still love Peter. I just don’t want to be married to Peter anymore,” Cynthia said in her interview with E! Entertainment Television.
“I still root for him. I want him to win. I still love and support him. We are just not going to be married anymore,” she continued. Does this mean there is a chance for them to reconcile? The world may never know.
