Cynthia Bailey says she’s moved on from The Real Housewives of Atlanta after spending 11 seasons on the show.
The model and entrepreneur was asked about returning to the Bravo reality series during a recent live taping of Page Six‘s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast in New York City.
“I do not see a ‘Housewives’ return at this point in my life,” said 56-year-old Bailey.
“I did 11 long years. I gave you guys two marriages, two divorces, I just don’t have anything else left to give you guys,” she added, referring to her divorces from Mike Hill and Peter Thomas.
Bailey appeared on the podcast with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Sutton Stracke to discuss Bailey’s new role as the first sustainable fashion curator for Sutton Brands.
The RHOA alum said she sees more in her future than just reality TV.
“I’m a woman of a certain age, there’s so much more I want to do,” she said.
Bailey said goodbye to RHOA in 2021.
“After much thought and consideration, I have made the very difficult and heartfelt decision not to return for the next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she said in a statement at the time.
Since leaving the show, she’s made occasional appearances as a friend. But is mostly focusing on her growing acting career, including starring in the 2022 Lifetime movie Cruel Instruction alongside Emmy-winning actress Camryn Manheim. Bailey also had a role on the second season of AllBlk’s horror anthology series Terror Lake Drive.
She said in the podcast interview she’s looking forward to doing more acting once the SAG-AFTRA strike ends.
“I’m actually really enjoying my acting career,” she said. “We are on strike right now. Please pray that it’s over soon.”
