Bailey and Thomas met in 2008. They dated for few years and later tied the knot on 24th July 2010. Their beautiful wedding ceremony was aired by RHOA on its January 2011 episode.

In an interview with Uptown, Thomas revealed that even though the couple had talked about divorce, it was his then-wife who needed it but not him. He also revealed his love for Bailey by saying that he never cheated on her and he is happy that she found peace.
‘I have never done anything, but love and defend my wife. She knows this too. I've always been here for Cynthia, even though she is fiercely independent. I want her to be happy. I want her to win, and I am happy she has seemingly found peace.’

The pair had started living separately since June 2016. Bailey told E! that she wants to take some time for herself. She believed that the distance did well to them and the more time they spend staying apart, the easier their divorce will be.
According to Thomas, the main reason behind their split is that the pair had different ambitions. Although there were a lot of reasons behind the couple’s decision of divorce, Thomas claims that RHOA is also one of the reasons behind their relationships break.
He doesn’t give all the blame to the show, as he says that the foundation of any relationship should be strong as a reality show can be both curse and blessing.
