Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Cynthia Bailey and her husband Peter Thomas are grabbing the spotlight and releasing a …..relationship book? While most of us who are familiar with their story are not sure anyone would want to take advice about relationships from Cynthia and Peter, we will not knock them for trying! It’s surprising that their marriage has lasted this long. You never know what goes on behind closed doors? Maybe the couple counseling helped them and now they want to help other struggling couples! Cudos!
After a rocky engagement (were we the only ones who didn’t think they would make it to the alta with all that drama?) and two dramatic weddings, both filmed for the hit Bravo reality series “RHOA”, Cynthia Bailey Thomas and Peter Thomas have penned Carry-on Baggage – Our Nonstop Flight. It’s a straight talk couple’s memoir following their journey of raising a blended family, running a mini empire and keeping the home fires burning after ago 40.
Distributed by Griffin Scott Press, LLC, a press release from the couple revealed that they wrote the book “to inspire, provoke and make readers laugh out loud” as they look at their “nonstop flight to finding marital bliss.” And it hits shelves July 2013.
And in addition to bookstores, Cynthia’s also headed to the dollhouse. She’s partnered with The One Doll Project to create a “collector’s item” in her image. The ESSENCE cover model released a statement saying,
“I’m elated at the opportunity to work with (doll designer) Stacey McBride-Irby and design a doll that will expand my message and the overall mission of The Bailey Agency School of Fashion to be confident, to feel empowered and to always be inspired.
As young girls, we looked at dolls as a representation of beauty. I hope looking at this doll will display not only physical beauty, but will also represent the beauty of being confidently and unapologetically who you are.”
