He’s single and definitely mingling! Nearly a year after finalizing his divorce from Cynthia Bailey, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Peter Thomas has seemingly found someone else, but he is playing coy about who that person is! Even though he’s been posting photos of a mystery woman on Instagram, fans are now convinced that there’s something going on between Peter and RHOA star Marlo Hampton.
During this week’s episode, pretty much the entire cast of the series showed up to support Kandi Burruss at the party she threw for herself in celebration of her first-ever Essence magazine cover. Cynthia brought her new fling Will to the event, which is why she felt extremely awkward when she found out that Marlo was wearing a coordinating outfit with Peter, who also attended the event. Since wearing matching or coordinating outfits is something that is usually reserved for couples, fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that Marlo’s bestie NeNe Leakes convinced her to bring Peter as her date just to annoy Cynthia.
But there is no proof that Peter arrived with Marlo, and he could’ve gotten a solo invite to the event because he’s very close friends with Kandi’s husband Todd Tucker. Besides, it looks like Peter has his eyes set on another woman who isn’t a part of the show.
The club and restaurant owner — who relocated from Atlanta to Charlotte, NC, to oversee his Sports One and Club One locations — recently posted a photo of himself and a mystery lady giving each other a kiss on New Year’s Eve.
“NYE KISS,” he captioned the pic. In the photo, Peter’s apparent girlfriend (who is untagged in the post) leans in for a smooch as her man gives a smug expression to the camera. This isn’t the first time Peter’s unidentified significant other has appeared on his social media. On Dec. 10, he shared a selfie of the same woman, writing, “BEAUTIFUL.”
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until Peter confirms the relationship himself. (Hopefully, we’ll get a name soon!) The Bravolebrity’s PDA with his new love interest comes months after his rumored romance with Love & Hip Hop Atlanta cast member Sina Bina. However, the mom-of-two — who shares twin daughters Eden and Allon with rapper Joc — insisted to Radar Online last May that she and Peter were never an item.

During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Peter’s former spouse Cynthia, 50, revealed that she and her ex don’t keep tabs on each other’s dating lives post-split. “We’re not together anymore so I’m not there when he watches [me date on RHOA]. He told me actually — I spoke to him a couple of days ago — he said that he hasn’t really watched it,” the model explained. “Um, I don’t imagine that it’s easy. I mean I don’t want to watch his dating life on TV so I kind of get it. Um, I guess it’s as well as to be expected. But we are officially divorced and we have both moved on so…”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo Sundays at 8 p.m. EST.
