Friends, family urge Cynthia not to marry Peter in Atlanta “Housewives” finale
By Kim Palacios
hollywoodnews.com: The list of friends and family who attempted to dissuade model Cynthia Bailey from marrying failed restaurateur and fiancé Peter Thomas was almost never-ending. In last night’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season finale (not to mention in some of the episodes leading up to it), nearly all of Bailey’s crowd—from her fellow Housewives, to her entourage, to her close family—expressed doubts.
The finale showed the bride on the morning of her wedding, not eagerly getting ready for her nuptials, but in tears as one person after another strove to convince her she could still walk away. Bailey went through with the wedding, but not without trepidation.
Those close to Bailey had trouble accepting the couples’ relationship after business dealings between the two went south. Thomas sunk his life savings into his supper club venture, “Uptown”, and took on Bailey as a partner when she invested a sizeable sum of her own money. Yet, Bailey was the last one to know that “Uptown” was going under. She found out during an episode of the show that Thomas had unilaterally decided to close the restaurant, effectively forfeiting her investment. In the episodes leading up to the finale, it was doubtful as to whether the pair would be able to pay for their upcoming wedding.
The most dramatic moment in the finale came when Bailey’s own mother and sister conspired against the bride by hiding the marriage certificate, which was needed to make the union legal. Indeed the only one of Bailey’s family members who seemed to support the marriage was her young daughter.
