6. Peter and RHOA Ex Kordell Stewart Invested In Sports One:

Porsha Williams’ ex-husband Kordell Stewart was one of the investors in Sports One, so he and Peter have kept in touch since the couple’s split in 2013.

5. He and Cynthia Wrote a Book together:

Many ‘Wives write books, but they don’t all do it with their husbands, as Cynthia did when she co-wrote Carry-On Baggage: Our Nonstop Flight with Peter.

The book, which was released in 2013, tells the story of their relationship up to that point, but we think Cynthia and Peter could totally fill another book with all of the deets of their roller coaster ride of a marriage since then.
