Andy Cohen is opening up about Cynthia Bailey’s exit from the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
On Monday, September 27, Cynthia officially announced that she would not be returning for season 14 of RHOA after 12 years on the show. This announcement came after months of speculation that she had been let go from the franchise.
“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,” Cynthia wrote via Instagram on Monday. “Thank you NBC Universal, Bravo, and Truly Original for over a decade of partnership. I can’t wait to see what we do next!”
Days later, Bravo’s Big Daddy revealed that he will miss Cynthia on future seasons of RHOA while also dubbing the former Housewife “iconic” and a “class act.”
On Wednesday’s episode of Radio Andy, Andy reacted to Cynthia’s departure.
“Class act. Love her,” Andy said of Cynthia. “I have to say, I think she had an unfair rep from people who would be like, ‘She’s boring.’”
He continued, “Cynthia drove a lot of story on that show for a lot of years. She was also on the show for 12 years. She was aspirational. She was classy. Glamourous. And I hope that we will be seeing more of her on Bravo in some way. She’s an asset.”
Filming for season 14 is scheduled to begin sometime in October, and the season will likely premiere on Bravo in early Spring 2022.
