Cynthia Bailey says she refused to drag her estranged husband Peter Thomas on television while they were going through their divorce even when producers were being messy. Find out why, plus catch up on Winnie Harlow’s clapback at a fan inside…
We watched Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas tie the knot on “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” And we’re currently watching them as they go their separate ways as they have decided to get a divorce.
But, one thing we’re never going to see is the former runway model disrespect her estranged husband on national television.
Speaking on a panel at the Sisters in Power event in Dallas over the weekend, Cynthia said she refused to drag Peter during their divorce while filming “RHOA.”
“When I decided that I was going to get divorced from Peter and the new season was beginning to tape, I went to the producers and said ‘I have a deal breaker. I'm going to be getting a divorce but I refuse to drag this black man on national TV’ Sure our divorce wasn't perfect, there were a lot of conditions, conversations & text messages. We said unthinkable things to each other, but I've always said that I'm going to leave this relationship with the same amount of respect, integrity and grace that I came into this marriage with."
Behind-the-scenes, producers were being messy, pressuring her to talk trash about Peter in hopes of creating drama for better ratings. Of course. Cynthia wasn’t with it though.
"The producers would come to me and say "he may come for you and he may do this.." and I would tell them that I don't give a damn what Peter does, he can go on Wendy Williams and do as many interviews as he wants, I know what I gave to this marriage and he knows what I gave to this marriage. One of the things I'm most proud of us going through this divorce and not making it a sh*t-show."
We'd have to agree. They both have refrained from hitting below the belt as they trek it through these divorce proceedings.
“One On One” starlet Kyla Pratt was also on the panel where she opened up about how she escaped the “child star curse” and avoided negative press.
"I've always wanted to make my mother proud. I grew up watching my mom do stage plays. I never wanted to disappoint my mom because my mother is one of my best friends. I'm not perfect, I've done crazy stuff but I've never been an attention seeker."
The mom-of-two also revealed how she handles “mean girls” in Hollywood:
"I run across a lot of women who see other women as competition and I'm just like "we don't have to fight each other, we should be supporting each other." Anyone who knows me knows that I don't have time, I don't sleep, I'm raising my kids, I have too much going on to be worrying about what someone else is doing. I'm raising two girls right now and my six year old is already dealing with mean girls in school."

Speaking of mean girls...
Supermodel Winnie can get SAVAGE if need be. Especially, when you come for her and she hasn’t sent for you.
The runway model posted a nude drawing a fan drew of her with the caption, “@sarahbrya #fanart Natural, but not accurate lol”
A fan decided to call her out for being “ungrateful” after Winnie pointed out that the picture wasn’t accurate. And here’s how it went down:
