Bailey said of the break-up in November 2016: 'I couldn’t give up Cynthia Bailey to be Cynthia Bailey Thomas.
She told US Weekly: 'I was in love with Peter, but I’m just not wife material. I will never be in a relationship again where it will take a lawyer for me to walk away. I will never marry again.'

'I can can confidently say that Mike and I will be getting married,' she declared on a January 2019 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
