cynthia & peter bailey*It’s a known fact that surgery can lives and heal the body. For Cynthia Bailey, all credit goes to the procedure for preventing her husband, Peter Thomas from finding love in other places.

During an interview with Life & Style, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star revealed that Peter was ready to walk out on her while she was being treated for uterine fibroids this season. Bailey’s medical situation was not an easy one to endure as she experienced physical pain that nearly ruined her marriage to Peter. To further complicate things, the condition caused Bailey to lose her sex drive and never be in the mood.

The lack of intimacy resulted in a period where Bailey and Peter hadn’t slept together in about three months, the reality show star confessed to Life & Style, adding that if the issue wasn’t taken care of “we’d be divorced for sure.”

“I know we would have been done,” said Peter. “There is absolutely no way we could have survived another year if things hadn’t changed.”

Pete further stated that things were so bad in his marriage that a trip out of town was not out of the realm of possibility. “Me and my buddies were planning a trip to Venezuela because nobody knows us there, ” he shared.

Now that Cynthia is recovering, happy days are here again for her and Peter as she said that her husband and she are “intimate a lot more now.”

The power of surgery. Gotta love it.
