Cynthia Bailey says she’s ready to get back in front of the cameras for season 15 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Bailey left the hit Bravo reality series after 11 seasons in 2021, and moved to Los Angeles.

But after divorcing husband Mike Hill, she’s spending more time in Atlanta at Lake Bailey. In a new interview in the SUAVV magazine studio, Bailey revealed fans will see her on upcoming episodes of RHOA.

“I can say that I am going to play with the girls a little bit this season, maybe some future seasons,” she said. “But only as a friend.”

The model and entrepreneur added that she got “bitten” by the Real Housewives bug again at BravoCon 2022.

Bailey said she remains close to some of the RHOA cast and has been invited to their events.

“Now that I’m spending more time back in Atlanta at Lake Bailey, I’m like, ‘I may as well go and play with the girls,'” she said.

Still, she wants time to work on her other ventures.

“I do miss hanging out with the ladies a little bit. I have some great friendships with some of the girls and I just want to still be able to do pursue my acting,” she added.

Over the past year, she’s had roles in the Lifetime movie Cruel Instruction and the second season of AllBlk’s horror anthology series Terror Lake Drive.

Bailey said RHOA still has “a few more weeks of filming” left for the season.
