Earlier this week we were shocked when Cynthia Bailey revealed that her husband Peter Thomas almost left her before she had surgery to remove her fibroids several months ago, because he couldn’t handle being married to her and not having sex on the regular.
Cynthia was recently on HLN, where she explained Peter’s frustration and detailed just how the fibroids had really begun to ruin her life. “The whole fibroid thing had really just taken over my life, and I’m not being dramatic!,” she began, explaining why her sex drive was virtually non-existent.
“You don’t feel like it, you don’t feel attractive, your bloated. You’re just tired all the time.”
And the lack of sex was really taking it’s toll on Peter.“I knew it was really a problem when Peter started feeling low self esteem about our relationship. He started to say things like ‘I feel like you’re not attracted to me anymore, you never want to do it anymore,’” Cynthia explains.
When you put it that way, Peter comes off a little better, but not much. Still, Cynthia defends him, noting, “My husband is very attracted to me, he wants to have sex with me and I wanted to have sex with him, as well!”
After an embarrassing incident at a Bravo event when Cynthia bled through her dress, she knew it was time to get her condition under control, and elected to have the fibroids removed. The “procedure”, as she calls it, was “ the best thing” she ever did. “My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner,” she dished.
And how are Peter and Cynthia these days, you ask? “We’re doing it all the time now!”, she happily concluded.
Are you still shocked by Peter’s admission that he was very close to leaving his wife, or does it make more sense now? Check out Cynthia’s complete interview on HLN below and share your thoughts with us!
