According to Media Takeout, NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey’s husband Peter Thomas dated each other several years ago!

A source — who used to work with Peter — revealed, “This was BEFORE he met Cynthia. Peter was a ladies man and dated a lot of women, NeNe was one of many . . . it wasn't serious.”

If that was the end of the story, then we don’t really see what the big deal is, but the source insists that Cynthia is completely unaware of her hubby’s past with her bestie, NeNe. “Peter is not one of those KISS AND TELL guys, I'm sure he never told Cynthia.”

Honestly, we can’t say we’re too surprised. We always thought there was something odd about the way Peter and NeNe acted around each other, and now we know why!
