I hate to even say this but we saw this coming 2 season ago. After this past season of RHOA, most of could tell that Peter & Cynthia’s marriage wasn’t as strong as it once was.
Peter trying to woo Cynthia back was part of their Season 8 storyline and it was tuff to watch. Both of them were trying to find their happiness they once had in their marriage and it seemed forced. The look Cynthia gave him when he tried to kiss her after returning from Charlotte, NC could’ve told us that she wasn’t feeling it anymore.
The video incident with him talking to a woman and he slightly touched her added more fuel to the fire. Too many it looked as if Peter was flirting and caressing the woman’s breast. She told him on an episode that he needs to know how to carry himself in public. Sounds like this wasn’t the first time he has shown out. Cynthia had the following to say about their separation.
Cynthia said she and Peter are now trying to figure out what’s next for their relationship. “I am definitely taking some time to myself to figure out how I want to move forward. I don’t want to rush into anything, so I think this time apart is good for us,” Cynthia told The Daily Dish. “And I think the space apart, I think he can appreciate it as well. I think it gives people time to think and process and just move forward in a way that really is healthy for everyone involved.” – Bravo
When asked about the future of their marriage and would there be a divorce in future she responded.
Cynthia said she doesn’t yet know what the future holds for her and Peter, but she is confident that he will still be in her life. “Regardless of where I am with Peter, he is my husband. I will always love him, and I will always support him. And I believe he feels the same about me,” Cynthia recently told The Daily Dish. “Whether or not we decide to stay married or not, that’s something that we have to decide soon. But right now, I’m enjoying the time apart, taking time for myself.” –Bravo
Cynthia is a beautiful woman and I truly hate this for both of them. I honestly believe Peter might be taking it a bit harder than her. Men’s egos are truly fragile. In my opinion, I believe Cynthia had enough of all the financial troubles that came from Peter’s businesses that never went anywhere. Bars opening and closing. She was a model that was accustomed to a certain way of life. Peter tried to continue that life but couldn’t keep up. Which may explain why he tried to open so many businesses.
There is no doubt in my mind that Housewives of Atlanta played a part of their marriage. Reality tv and living in the spotlight is difficult. You’re open to everyone’s opinion even if you don’t wanna see it you will feel it.
What do you think about Cynthia’s separation from Peter?

Noname Drops “Song 33” in Response to J. Cole Diss
Chicago musician Noname has responded to J. Cole in her latest release “Song 33.” If you recall, two days ago we broke down the Noname/J.Cole beef and why many were calling Cole’s controversial song “Snow on Tha Bluff” misogynist and patriarchal. Noname appears to address the diss track and more on her latest release “Song 33.”
As soon as you press play the track hits you right in the feels. A sample saying “Oh, I have ambitions, dreams / But dreams don’t come cheap” opens the song, then immediately we listen to Noname discuss the patriarchal society in which Black women are forced to exist – a society that undervalues and ignores Black women. She said Oluwatoyin Salu’s name.
I saw a demon on my shoulder / it’s looking like patriarchy
Like scrubbing blood off the ceiling and bleaching another carpet
She takes aim at J. Cole for staying silent while Black women routinely “go missing,” yet immediately having something to say when she called him out on it.
One girl missing another one go missing / One girl missing another
But niggas in the back quiet as a church mouse / Basement studio when duty calls to get the verse out
Noname lists all the brutalities happening to Black people and Black women while at the same time, calling him to action. She reminds us Black women are going missing.
I guess the ego hurt now / It’s time to go to work / Wow
Look at him go / He really ‘bout to write about me when the world is in smokes?
When it’s people in trees?
She then criticizes the internet at large for being too easily distracted by the “beef” and losing sight of “the new world order.”
It’s trans women being murdered and this is all he can offer?
And this is all y’all receive? / Distracting you from the convo wit organizers
They talkin abolishing the police
This the new world order
Noname has always been an outspoken champion for Black women’s rights, often bringing attention to crimes committed against Black women that regularly go unheard. In her response to J. Cole, the musician again uses her platform to not only highlight the inherent patriarchy that causes so many Black female victims of violent crime to go unnoticed and forgotten, but to also galvanize Cole, to publicly and boldly challenge him and everyone listening to be the vanguards of a more just and equitable society.
Noname’s call to action is one that has been repeated by women of color for years. Tarana Burke (below), a woman of color and the founder of the “Me Too” Movement, initially began saying the phrase to remind women of color that they are not alone when they struggle with coping with sexual harassment and sexual assault.
Kimberlé Crenshaw (below), another woman of color and an outspoken feminist and civil rights activist, coined the term “intersectionality” to explain the myriad obstacles Black women face in society and how those obstacles compound on one another to create a unique brand of discrimination against them.
As we take each and every day, but especially this Juneteenth, to reflect on the painful history of the United States and remember the priceless cost of freedom, we must heed Noname’s call and begin to acknowledge the ways we Black Americans are not free, the ways Black women are not free.
And we must do it in a QUEEN TONE!!!
