Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas' marriage may be coming to an end.

A source tells E! News that The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars are considering filing for separation after being married for five years. The news comes shortly after TMZ reported that the pair have decided to live in separate homes, with Cynthia residing in Atlanta while Peter stays in their Charlotte house.

This may not be a huge surprise to fans who have followed the series, especially this season. The show has teased the growing tension between the couple for two weeks in previews, with Cynthia and Peter confirming they're living apart. They will also be addressing their relationship during the reunion show with Andy Cohen on Sunday.

Cynthia and Peter's relationship was never a smooth road, and a number of their difficult moments within their marriage have been played out on the hit Bravo reality show.

When the 48-year-old reality star stopped by Reality Checked with Amy Phillips on Andy's Sirius XM channel, Radio Andy, she confessed that her relationship with Peter has been especially rocky in recent minds. "I will say that Peter are not in a great place right now. Honestly, I don't know what's going to happen with us right now, we're still trying to figure it out. But, you know, it's complicated," Bailey admitted.

"We've been married five years, we've been together for eight. We're the only couple on The Real Housewives of Atlanta that actually was married on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. We've never been married outside of the show, and I don't think that it's helped us a lot...Maybe if we were married three years before we went on the show, that would have been better. I just have nothing to compare my marriage to outside of the show, and you know it's just been difficult—I mean, the wedding was difficult, everything about our marriage has been difficult."
