If you were wondering whether or not you’ll see Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas’ divorce unfold onscreen during the new season of the show, the answer is yes.

On Tuesday, October 25, The Real Bailey, joins the hosts at the table for an intimate discussion on her failed marriage and how she and Thomas are moving forward.

“Yes, you will see it play out,” Bailey tells the ladies, when asked whether or not the cameras followed the dissolution of her six-year marriage on the show.

When the couple tied the knot on television in 2010 they became the first and only couple to every get married on the popular reality show. “You know, we’ve always been very transparent in our relationship and that’s worked for us and against us at the same time,” Bailey adds.

Fans of the show and the couple’s once blossoming love story will no doubt be disappointed as their marriage comes to an end this season on the show, but it will be even harder for Bailey to watch.

“To have to go through a divorce on the show is not easy, but the only thing more tragic than divorce is being in something that’s not working anymore,” Bailey shared.
