Kandi Burruss surprised Cynthia Bailey with the news that her former partner Peter Thomas is joining the ladies squad on their Hawaiian vacation this season. Speaking about whether she was aware of him joining them, Cynthia told the Daily Dish, "No, Kandi didn't check with me about Peter coming. I was pretty much told that Todd [Tucker] invited him, and if I was OK with that. I was OK with it."

Further sharing details about the awkward situation, Bailey told the site, "I didn't want to share a room, and I definitely didn't want to send mixed signals to the cast to make them feel like, 'Oh, this is gonna be a big trip for us to reunite.' My mind was still made the whole time we went on the trip, and none of that was gonna change. But I think a lot of the girls and guys were optimistic that maybe there would have been a re-love connection."

The reality TV star also revealed that there were moments when she accidentally slipped back into couple mode. "I accidentally kept calling him 'babe' and all this crazy stuff. Like, 'Babe, we have to get on the boat now'. Like, 'Oh, I mean Peter, not babe. Sorry.' It was a little confusing."
