So far on this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta we’ve seen Kenya Moore get kicked out of her home, Mama Joyce nearly ruin Kandi Burruss’s engagement to Todd Tucker, and Cynthia Bailey go under the knife to remove painful uterine fibroids that caused her to gain 20 pounds and lose her sex drive.

We watched as a frightened Cynthia checked into the hospital on the day of her surgery, and even though the fibroids themselves were painful, Cynthia is now revealing that the future of her marriage to Peter Thomas depended on getting them removed. The supermodel housewife candidly tells Life & Style that Peter nearly left her when things got tough.

Cynthia tells the mag that if she didn’t have the surgery, “we’d be divorced for sure.” And as shocking and heartless as that sounds, Peter admits that he would have ditched his gorgeous wife had she not had the fibroid surgery several months ago. Apparently the lack of sex (the fibroids left Cynthia with no sex drive) was just too much for him to deal with. Aww, poor guy!

“There is absolutely no way we could have survived another year if things hadn’t changed,” he admitted. In fact, things got so bad at one point that Peter seriously considered cheating on his wife. “Me and my buddies were planning a trip to Venezuela because nobody knows us there.”

But even after Cyn had the fibroids removed, things were still tense for the couple. During the January 5 episode of RHoA, Peter told his wife he wanted to get his own "man cave" across town, a decision Cynthia was understandably annoyed by. An argument ensued and we were left wondering if Cynthia's sister Malorie really had reason to worry about Peter and Cynthia's marriage. 

We’re glad to know that Peter took the “in sickness and in health” part of his marriage vows so seriously. We’ve always tried to give Peter the benefit of the doubt, but even saying he comes across as a sex-obsessed asshole in light of these recent revelations is letting him off easy. Still, Cyn is standing by her man and says the couple is “intimate a lot more now.” Insert eye roll here.

Are you surprised that Cynthia is still with Peter, even though he admitted he would leave her if she couldn’t find a way to have sex with him again? Tell us your thoughts below!
