At the beginning of Season 15 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans were super excited to see many familiar faces return to the franchise in guest roles, one of the highly anticipated guests this season was the one and only RHOA veteran Cynthia Bailey.
We’ve been hearing about Cynthia’s return to the Real Housewives of Atlanta for quite some time. In fact, even after she exited the show after season 13 Bailey always maintained she was close friends with the rest of her cast members and a “pop in” was always possible. During the season 15 trailer, the network teased her official guest return to the show Bailey helped build during one of Kenya Moore’s hair care events.
After fans anticipated Bailey’s return, during the latest episode of RHOA viewers quickly noticed that Bailey’s return was axed from the episode. Fans quickly took to twitter to address the shocking edit decision:
So let me get this straight; They clipped Cynthia out of the show & Removing scenes of NeNe but Kim racist ass gets to be front in center & y’all want me to believe they don’t have any ounce of prejudice ? #RHOA pic.twitter.com/VvNbtfxyQZ— 🅿️heno♏enal (@KensPhenoStroke) July 10, 2023
I’m so irked they removed Cynthia’s scene. I would’ve loved to hear both she and Kenya talk about getting their friendship back on track. I cannot stand the choices #RHOA’s production team makes. Such a missed opportunity.— CWT (@CWatchesReality) July 10, 2023
Bailey has even done press tours promoting her RHOA return, Bailey joined Kit Hoover and Mario Lopez on Access Daily to share some tasty cocktails as a Paid Spokesperson for Seagram’s Escapes. The reality star looked back at her time on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and teased her upcoming return on the hit Bravo show.
Fans are still speculating the reason why Cynthia Bailey’s pop-in into RHOA was left in the editing floor, Cynthia Bailey herself has not addressed it.
Real Housewives of Atlanta continues Sundays on Bravo at 8/7c.
