For the second season in a row, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey has been caught in the middle of massive tension between her husband, Peter Thomas, and her sister Malorie. 

Last year, Malorie voiced her objections to Cynthia and Peter’s marriage so loudly, the bride was in tears on her wedding day. This year, Malorie still had such a problem with Peter, she nearly ruined the couple’s one-year anniversary party with her loud (and cocktail-fueled) complaints about him.

Wetpaint Entertainment recently caught up with Cynthia at Bravo’s Upfront presentation in New York, where she updated us on her family drama.

“It’s been a really tough situation for me because Mal is my sister and Peter is my husband,” Cynthia explained. “They’re BOTH my family.”

“As you guys saw, Malorie recently left for France to go live with her husband, so that gave all of us some breathing room and some time to reflect.”

Now, says Cynthia, she, Malorie and Peter are “working it out. It’s a work in progress.”
