Reality star and model Cynthia Bailey recently opened up about possibly joining The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (RHOBH) after exiting The Real Housewives Of Atlanta (RHOA), saying, “It can make sense.”
In an interview with Page Six, Bailey said that joining the RHOBH cast after leaving RHOA is possible, but it would have to be “organic.” She announced her departure from RHOA in 2021 after 11 years on the show.
“Beverly Hills comes up a lot, and [it’s] one of those situations where it would just have to be organic,” she told the news outlet while promoting her new role in the ALLBLK scripted anthology series Terror Lake Drive: Single Black Female.

During the interview, Bailey also noted that she’s friends with RHOBH star actress Garcelle Beauvais and award-winning actor Will Smith’s former wife, Sheree Zampino–both of whom are currently on the Beverly Hills-based series in The Real Housewives franchise.
“I know Garcelle. I actually know Sheree [too], who is one of the new’ friends of’ on the show,” she said. “I know [Lisa] Rinna, I know Kyle [Richards], I’ve worked with Dorit [Kemsley]. I’ve never met Sutton [Stracke]…I feel like I know those ladies well enough that if it ever wanted to make sense, it can make sense.”
The RHOA alum added that she initially moved from Atlanta to L.A. to pursue an acting career, after tying the knot with sportscaster Mike Hill back in 2020.
“I really came out to L.A. to start my acting career. I really didn’t come here to join Beverly Hills,” she said. “Now, once the acting kicks off…if I slide in there every now and then, I’m not opposed to it. It would just have to make sense, but it’s not my focus right now.”
In October 2021, Bailey said one of the main reasons she left RHOA was to “protect her marriage.”
