They weathered a cheating scandal involving Thomas over the summer and are currently facing a new round of divorce rumors.

But the source also exposed that the relationship issues were part of the reason Bailey was chosen to return to the show!
“That’s how come Cynthia still has a peach,” the insider said.
The source continued, “She now has some drama and meat to her storyline.”
