'RHOA' Star Cynthia Bailey My Breakup Isn't Just About the Show

EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Cynthia Bailey is desperately trying to save her marriage ... or she's completely given up hope -- depending on your take of this video.

Cynthia arrived solo at LAX over the weekend. We broke the story ... she and husband Peter Thomas are now living in separate cities. When we asked about the split, she insisted there's more to it than 'RHOA' drama or story lines.

But watch what happens when our photog asked if there's a reconciliation in the works. Either Peter's still got a shot ... or he can start making permanent moving plans.
