"After much thought and consideration, I have made the very difficult and heartfelt decision not to return for the next season of [The] Real Housewives of Atlanta. Thank you NBC Universal, Bravo, and Truly Original for over a decade of partnership. I can’t wait to see what we do next!" she wrote. "Thank you to my [The] Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates for eleven of the most unbelievable years of my life; and the most incredible & UNFORGETTABLE memories! I am so grateful to have had this amazing journey, and I am anxiously waiting to embark on new adventures. Most importantly, THANK YOU to my fans! I could not have done it without your blessings, love, and support. Without the fans, none of this would be possible. I love and appreciate all of you. It’s time to move on to my next chapter, and I look forward to sharing it with all of you. See you guys soon!"

Cynthia joined RHOA in Season 3. Fans have been by Cynthia's side through so many of her milestones right through Season 13, including two of her weddings and marriages (she married Peter Thomas in 2010, and they divorced in 2017; then in 2020, she married Mike Hill), her life as a mom to Noelle Robinson (who has grown up on the series), and her move to her gorgeous home, which she has dubbed Lake Bailey, as well as her growth as an entrepreneur.
