Cynthia Bailey Says She Doesn't See Herself Returning to 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta'

Cynthia Bailey, who saw her scenes cut from the dreadful 15th season of RHOA says she doesn't see herself returning to the franchise.

“I do not see a ‘Housewives’ return at this point in my life,” Bailey, 56, said during Thursday’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” live podcast taping at Chelsea Table & Stage in New York City.

The model-turned-reality star added that she feels like she “just left” the world of “Housewives,” noting her 2021 departure from “RHOA” after 11 consecutive seasons.

“I did 11 long years. I gave you guys two marriages, two divorces,” she said, acknowledging her 2017 divorce from Peter Thomas and her divorce from second husband Mike Hill, which was settled in February.

“Like, I just don’t have anything else left to give you guys.”

However, Bailey has appeared as a guest on the current season of “Atlanta” and filmed scenes for the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” with bestie and business partner Sutton Stracke. (Bailey just launched a sustainable line of bedding with Sutton Brands.)

“I did enjoy being able to pop in on … ‘Atlanta’ and ‘Beverly Hills’ because I do have organic relationships with a lot of the ladies after 11 years of being a consistent peach-holder on ‘Atlanta,’” she explained.

“It’s good to just be able to come home sometimes.”

Bailey emphasized that she is “really enjoying [her] acting career” at the moment despite the ongoing SAG-AFTRA actors’ strike — the first in 43 years — that has put most scripted productions on pause.

“We are on strike right now. Please pray that’s over soon,” the “Terror Lake Drive” actress said.

“I wanted to do something else and I feel like for me, personally, I’m a woman of a certain age,” she elaborated. “There’s so much more I want to do. Like, I’ve done ‘Housewives.’ I can check it off.”

Bailey can also check off partying with Mick Jagger this summer. She and Stracke, 51 — who joined Bailey for Page Six’s live show — told us about their wild night with the rock icon at the American Ballet Theatre Gala in June.

“I did mushrooms,” Stracke said, causing the audience to erupt in loud cheers. “… I’m cool now.”

Bailey said on “Virtual Reali-Tea” that she even asked Jagger, 80, for a selfie to commemorate such an unforgettable evening with Stracke.

“Me, [a] social media whore, I’m like, ‘We got to get a picture with him,’” she joked. “So we take a picture, his eyes are closed, it’s blurry. But of course we post it because it’s Mick Jagger, right?”

If only three quarters of her former castmates had the same sentiments. If you have nothing to offer the series in regards to a storyline that reflects your real life, you need not be part of the show.

Then again with the rumors swirling that producers are looking to either keep three of the castmates or reboot the entire franchise, changes to the long in the tooth franchise are definitely on the horizon.
