Sanya Richards-Ross Says Goodbye to The Real Housewives of Atlanta

It’s time to say adios to the four-time Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross on The Real Housewives of Atlanta

Andy Cohen, host and executive producer of the Real Housewives, confirmed the reality star’s exit during an episode of his radio show, Andy Cohen Live. Although Sanya is yet to comment officially, Andy’s remarks arrived right as the Bravoverse began wondering what was next regarding Atlanta’s Sweet 16. 

What’s going down in Atlanta, Georgia? 

Sanya isn’t the only Housewife exiting after Season 15. Kandi Burruss was the first cast member to announce her departure, citing her desire to try other projects. “I decided I’m not coming back this year. It’s been 14 seasons, and they allowed us to sit around for a little too long, but during that time, I had started working on a lot of other things, and I got some nice big projects coming soon, so I’m super excited about those things,” she said earlier this year. 

Marlo Hampton also shared she wouldn’t return to the franchise. “My contract with Real Housewives of Atlanta ended when Season 15 wrapped. This break from RHOA is a fresh start, allowing me the space to participate in new creative entertainment projects focused on my future, and not reliving my past,” she stated. 

Fans are still waiting to hear about Shereé Whitfield, Kenya Moore, and Drew Sidora; however, one familiar face confirmed to return is Porsha Williams

In addition to the Bravo staple picking up her peach again for Season 16, P Willy also inked an overall talent deal with NBCUniversal, which will put the multi-hyphenate in scripted projects too. 

Phaedra Parks, who had a phenomenal performance this season of The Traitors, is also rumored to be returning. She spoke about the possibility earlier this year, saying she’d love to help bring the show back to its glory days.
