Cynthia Bailey is giving up her peach. The model and actress announced that she will not return for season 14 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote, “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.”

After thanking multiple networks, Bailey extended her gratefulness to her RHOA cast members, thanking them “for eleven of the most unbelievable years of my life; and the most incredible & UNFORGETTABLE memories!”

“I am so grateful to have had this amazing journey, and I am anxiously waiting to embark on new adventures,” The model and actress added. “Most importantly, THANK YOU to my fans! I could not have done it without your blessings, love, and support. Without the fans, none of this would be possible. I love and appreciate all of you.” 

“It’s time to move on to my next chapter, and I look forward to sharing it with all of you,” she concluded. “See you guys soon!”

Bailey, 54, joined RHOA in 2010 during its third season. Throughout the next 11 years, fans were able to witness her friendship with fellow cast member Nene Leakes, her former marriage to restaurateur Peter Thomas, her current marriage to talk show host Mike Hill, as well as her relationship with her daughter, Noelle

Fans haven’t seen the last of the reality star yet, though. Bailey will appear on Bravo’s new crossover series, The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, with other fan favorites across the Housewives franchise. The series is set to premiere this fall on Peacock.
