When Cynthia Bailey left "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," she hoped to take a break for a while. However, she's found herself accepting more opportunities to feature in other projects, such as "The Housewives of the North Pole."
Cynthia Bailey left RHOA after the 11th season, hoping to spend more time with her husband of one year, Mike Hill, and their kids. The model shared that she's been enjoying the new chapter in her life.
Bailey announced her exit from the show in September. Sharing the news on her Instagram, she said that it was not a split-second decision, and she'd considered it for a while.

She thanked the NBC Universal network for over a decade of partnership and her cast-mates for eleven of the most "unbelievable" years of her life. She said she'd had the most incredible and unforgettable memories. She wrote on:
"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."
And while many speculated that Hill was the reason she left the show, Bailey was quick to dismiss the claims saying that her husband was her biggest supporter and always wanted what was best for her.
Bailey said she left the show because she had had a long run on reality TV. She wanted to take a break from all the drama. She, however, disclosed that she was not saying "never" to TV.
The "Life Twirls On" star also hinted that she would still be on TV, just not "RHOA." Bailey has since taken on other roles in the BET series "Games People Play."
Bailey and her husband Hill seem to be having the time of their lives amid recent cheating rumors. The couple defended their marriage by addressing the claims of Hill's alleged affair.
Hill allegedly sent a nude photo of himself to another woman. The couple, however, denied the allegations saying they were doing great. They referred to the ordeal as "very annoying."
Hill claimed that he would take legal action against the accuser if the allegations continued. He, however, said he did not know who started the rumors but hoped they would seek help.
Bailey and Hill began dating in 2018, got engaged in July 2019, and tied the knot in October 2020. They are doting parents to Bailey's daughter Noelle, with ex Leon Robinson and Hill's daughters Ashleé and Kayla from his two previous marriages.
