“I will never be in a relationship again where it will take a lawyer for me to walk away,” the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star told Us Weekly shortly after divorcing her husband of six years, Peter Thomas. “I will never marry again.”
Bailey and Thomas’ marriage was plagued by a number of issues, most of them captured by reality TV cameras and in the tabloids. Thomas was infamously caught flirting with other women, which spawned infidelity rumors.
“Hawaii was the first time Peter and I have hung out since we separated,” the model, 49, tells Us Weekly, noting that costar Kandi Burruss’ husband, Todd Tucker, invited the bar owner along. “I think Kandi was hoping for a love reconnection.”
Or at least a few sparks. “It was Peter’s birthday and there was talk of, ‘Technically, you guys are still married. He needs a little birthday booty!’” Bailey reveals, adding cagily, “I may or may not have entertained that notion.”
Outside of paradise, the couple have been learning to be just friends. Since Thomas, 56, relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina, in January, Bailey has been coming to terms with her decision to end their six-year marriage. (They were together for nine years.)
“There’s something very scary about turning 50 and being by yourself,” she said. “I just have to believe everything will be OK.”
