Fans were treated to a whole lot of drama in the season opener of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, which aired on Sunday.
Between Kandi Buruss’ baby announcement, Phaedra Parks raising her children without her incarcerated husband, Kenya Moore renovating her new house, Sheree Whitfield’s big return, and Porsha Williams’ cougar conquest, there is so much storyline for viewers to follow and speculate on.
However, the highlight of the episode is arguably Cynthia Bailey’s angle, which involves some serious marriage issues with her husband Peter Thomas.
It can be remembered that in July, a “cheating” video of Thomas was posted on Instagram and quickly went viral. It showed him at one of his establishments, Bar One in Atlanta, kissing and getting quite handsy with a woman who wasn’t his wife.
Bailey and sister Malorie engage in a serious discussion about her marriage, in which the latter asked the former what her true feelings are for her husband.
"Are you still in love with him?” asks Malorie, to which Bailey responds, “Yes, I am in love with him still.”
She also admitted that she was still physically attracted to him, although when Malorie followed it up by asking, “Even with his clothes off?” Bailey says, “No.”
Bailey goes on to defend her answer by saying that she is more attracted to Thomas’ “mind” than his physical attributes.
Meanwhile, former Xscape member Kandi Buruss, who is currently the show’s most senior member after NeNe Leakes’ departure, revealed that she and husband Todd Tucker are expecting their first child together. Williams, on the other hand, has a new boyfriend – a football player named Duke who is ten years her junior. Parks is shown still contemplating filing for divorce from her husband Apollo, who’s been in jail for an entire year now.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs every Sunday at 8 p.m. on the Bravo network.
