REAL Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey dropped hints that she’s leaving the Bravo show.
The 54-year-old has starred on the Bravo franchise for 10 years.
Rumors began to swirl that Cynthia was leaving the show when she removed the RHOA hashtag from her Instagram bio.
However, the TV personality insisted she hasn’t been fired.
She told Love B. Scott that she chose to remove the hashtag from her bio a while back, adding that she hasn’t been fired “to her knowledge.”
However, Cynthia implied that she has not yet been asked back for the next season of RHOA as she said she “would like the option to return.”
The Bravo star also spoke about her hopes to return to the show in a recent interview with Sheen Magazine.
She told the outlet: “Oh, I 100 percent always want the option.
“The way that Housewives’ gig works every year is, you know, every year either you’re invited back or you may not want to come back.”
Cynthia continued: “But, you always want the option, so of course I always want to have the option.
“And right now we’re not currently filming at the moment, so I have some time to think about which direction I wanna go. They have time to figure out what they want to do at the show.
“That’s bigger than me. I’m like just tell me [if] I have the option to come back or not. If I do, let me think about it and figure it out like I do every year.”
Even if Cynthia does not return to the series, she hinted that fans won’t see her disappear from the spotlight.
The RHOA star told the outlet: “Here’s the thing, whether I do or not, I’m still going to be working somewhere. That will be the next part of the journey.
“If I’m not on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, you can best believe these cheekbones will be on TV doing something else.”
RHOA is not her only involvement in the franchise, as she’s been tapped to star on Real Housewives All Stars.
The show will feature seven cast members from the Real Housewives franchise, including Cynthia, Jersey girl Teresa Giudice, 48, New York socialite Ramona Singer, 64, fellow RHONY star Luann de Lesseps, RHONJ cast mate Melissa Gorga and RHOA star Kenya Moore, 50.
Back in May, Cynthia’s daughter Noelle Robinson revealed that her brief stint on RHOA got her fired from a waitressing job.
While appearing on the first-ever Housewives Kids special on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the 21-year-old said of the show: “It definitely made my experience a lot different and harder for me socially.
“People assume you’re bougie or stuck up and that’s just really not true. I definitely think it made it harder for me at college.
“I actually got fired from the job because [fans] were noticing me.
“They were like, ‘We don’t want people noticing you at the job. That’s not what it’s about.’”
