"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Peter Thomas has broken his silence about his and Cynthia Bailey's decision to divorce.

Last weekend, Bailey revealed to E! News that she and her husband of six years are heading to a divorce.

"I want to take some time for myself," Bailey said of why she hasn't seen Thomas for five months after news broke that they were separating after six years of marriage. "I think the time apart has been good for him as well. It wasn't like I had to do it right this second but the more we got used to not being together and living together, the easier this divorce is going to be."

"I don't want it to be an ugly divorce because I still love Peter," she explained. "I just don't want to be married to Peter anymore. It's as simple as that. I still root for him. I want him to win. I still love and support him. We are just not going to be married anymore."

In response to Bailey's statement, Thomas reached out to UPTOWN Magazine to further explain their decision to divorce.

"We have discussed divorce," Thomas confirmed. "[But] it wasn't something that I wanted. But it is something that I believe she thinks she needs. And honestly, I wish we could have made the public announcement jointly."

"I love Cynthia," he continued. "I have never cheated on her. She knows this. I have never taken money from Cynthia. She knows this. I have never done anything, but love and defend my wife. She knows this too."

Thomas admitted that the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" "had a lot to do" with their decision to divorce, explaining that "Reality TV can be a blessing and a curse, as it provides tremendous opportunities, but it also puts one hell of a strain on a relationship, especially if the foundation is not solid."

"Our individual ambitions were also part of our relationship's demise," Thomas added.

"When we got married, divorce was never an option, at least not for me," the businessman said. "I am not sure where our relationship went left for her, or perhaps it was never really there. I've always been here for Cynthia, even though she is fiercely independent. I want her to be happy. I want her to win, and I am happy she has seemingly found peace. "
