A video surfaced recently of The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey’s husband Peter Thomas apparently cheating on her with another woman. As this story circulates more and more, many are beginning to wonder if it was actually just a hoax.
OK! Magazine is reporting that this cheating scandal may actually have been all staged to help Cynthia stay as a full-time housewife on season eight of RHOA since this would give her a dramatic storyline.
“Viewers of the video have noted that the camerawoman was extremely close to Thomas and should have been easily spotted by him. And Bailey’s comments in a radio interview following the video’s release are adding to the suspicion among fans,” OK! Magazine wrote. “Others have added that Bailey’s quickness to make her Instagram account private on Tuesday afternoon while going on to talk publicly about the scandal in the radio interview on Wednesday doesn’t completely add up.”
The magazine also stated that due to recent reports claiming Cynthia has been asked back for the eighth season of the show, this video could help the couple ensure Cynthia keeps her full-time role on the show and does not get bumped down to a guest role, like Porsha Williams did last season.
Not much casting info has been leaked about next season except that the only women to have been asked back so far are NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore, and Kandi Burruss, so this incident could help keep Cynthia on the show as a housewife for another season.
What do you think of the cheating allegations against Peter? Do you think he and Cynthia faked all of this just to stay on the show full-time?
