Real Housewives' Peter Thomas Has COVID-19, Thinks a Fan Gave It to Him

Peter Thomas, who is best known for appearing on Real Housewives of Atlanta, has revealed that he is battling the novel coronavirus.

The 58-year-old reality star, who used to be married to Cynthia Bailey, says that he thinks he got COVID-19 after taking photos with fans.

Peter posted a video on Instagram in which he detailed his experience. He didn’t test positive until he took the test six times.

“I’m going to tell you something, wear your mask, wear gloves and practice social distancing,” he said. “People come up to me and ask me to take pictures all the time and they want me to have the mask off and they want to hug on me and they say they like me. I take those pictures, and every time I take those pictures, I’m praying to God that I don’t get this thing, but it caught up to me.”

“It’s the most excruciating pain I could think of. My stomach [has been] a complete wreck for the last 8 days, pain [and] constant cramping. The pain is crazy. Chills all day and all night,” he said (via People). “I gotta be in bed for another seven days before they come and take the test again. I have to be negative twice before I can even think about outside. I guess I should be celebrating because here in Miami there’s 260 people dying everyday for the last 7 days. I am celebrating because I’m still alive.”

“I want you guys to take this thing extremely serious because it’s no joke. The pain don’t go away,” Peter added. “Your body is extremely sensitive, the slightest little thing, it’s constant pain everywhere. I can’t wait for this s–t to be over.”

All of these stars also tested positive for coronavirus
