#Update in on Cynthia Bailey being fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta.
According to TooFab.com:
Cynthia Bailey has not been fired from “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” according to Bravo which airs the popular reality series. “There is no truth to this story,” a spokesperson for the network told TooFab on Tuesday. An insider close to production of the series also told TooFab that Bailey is still with the show “at this time.”
Reports surfaced Tuesday on gossip sites, claiming Bailey was fired from production of the show.
Cynthia Bailey, she’s one of our favorite housewives, so we’re sad to be hearing that she was reportedly fired From ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’ Rumors are that she’s not the only one getting the ax, though…
Mediatakeout.com says that Cynthia was in tears after learning that she was fired from RHOA. But she’s not the only one leaving the cast as the article says “we hear that at least one other Housewife will also be asked to leave.”
They say it’s to make room in the budget to bring NeNe Leakes back to the show.
An insider was quoted as saying:
“Usually we wait until after the reunion show to fire the ladies, but [the producers] want to sign new housewives (aka NeNe) soon – so they’re making budget moves early.”
However, this might not be the only cast member leaving. Reportedly, another member will be asked to leave soon as well. No word yet on who that member will be.
Bailey was previously demoted on the show back in September of 2015 after her altercation with Porsha Williams. Bailey and Porsha got into it while filming the show in a scene on a boat.
The ladies had a heated argument over something minor, but things became physical when Porsha repeatedly called Cynthia the B-Word.
Eyewitnesses said that “words were going back and forth” until “Cynthia snapped and kicked Porsha in the stomach while wearing high heels.” Wow!
There has been no official statement on Cynthia’s departure from “RHOA” from the network or Bailey herself. The promotional videos for the show still mention Cynthia and her ex-husband, Peter Thomas.
Bailey recently confirmed in a new interview that her divorce had been finalized and that she has already started dating again. She told “Daily Dish”, “You know, we’ve been separated for over a year, and just this whole process has been a lot, just mentally and emotionally, and I’m not saying, ‘Yay, I’m so happy to be divorced, but I’m kind of saying, ‘Yay, I’m so happy that it’s finally over.”
Cynthia has not hinted at being fired from the show on social media. Her latest post simply states, “Smile. Life is Beautiful”.
