The last time Cynthia and her husband Peter tried to semi-work together, but really apart, it didn’t work out so well. I specifically recall a lot of drama on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” when Peter’s nightclub turned out to be a bust and when Cynthia wasn’t getting the type of support she wanted from her husband when she was starting the Bailey Agency. Nevertheless, the two have decided to embark on yet another venture as a couple — writing a relationships book.
Sister 2 Sister caught up with the pair to talk about the idea for the book, which will be titled Baggage Claim, and Cynthia said this:
“The whole reason we decided to do the book is because we are a couple that got together later in life. At that point usually, you have a lot of baggage with you.
“People don’t usually change up in their late 40s. It’s kind of ‘what you see is what you get,’ as opposed to getting married when you’re younger, and a little more open to things. So, it’s just kind of a different struggle to go through. We felt like a lot of people could relate to our story.”
Cynthia expects Baggage Claim to be available by Valentine’s Day 2013 and she said working with her husband, who clearly is st in his ways, was a new learning experience.
“It was interesting working with Peter because the book was really all about his perspective and my perspective. Even though we’ve been together for like five years and I know him and I love him, we really kinda saw—even how we got together—very differently,” she said.
“When I tell you how we got together, it’s going to be totally different from how he would tell you that we got together. So, that’s really how our relationship is. He may see green, and I may see purple, but we still always get to that common place.”
