The 54-year-old reality star/supermodel also talked about potentially not returning to the hit Bravo series, when Williams said jokingly it’s Bailey that should be fired.
“There’s nothing more exciting that you can give to us. I don’t want to see you fight. I don’t want to see you get divorced. Like, I think that it’s time,” Williams explains. “The only thing then is what will you do for a paycheck? But I was thinking, ‘This is still a model, just like Christie Brinkley!’ You can model.”
But according to Bailey, the reality gig is the one she prefers.
“I love The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Bailey replies. “This platform has been amazing. I have an amazing relationship with the network. Bravo has been good to me.”
“Here’s the thing,” she continues, “nobody really wants to be fired. I mean, my first job was Taco Bell. I wouldn’t want to be fired from there. I would want the option to leave if I wanted to go. God’s will, not my will, will be done. I have had an amazing run. It’s been 11 amazing years as a consistent peach-holder.”
Bailey, who was on Wendy’s show to raise awareness for breast cancer screenings, also made time to shade her former co-star NeNe Leakes, who, while she didn’t say her name directly, she says is the one who should never come back to the show.
“The person who wants me to be fired all the time, who actually isn’t even on the show anymore. Her name rhymes with ‘meanie,’” Bailey said.
Leakes has made it very clear that RHOA is not the same without her. As previously reported by theGrio, in an interview with Jason Lee on Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored, the former housewife who left after 13 seasons, compared her absence to the fate of the R&B group Destiny’s Child without Beyoncé.
“It’s kind of hard to have the group Destiny’s Child and take Beyoncé out and still think you have Destiny’s Child. It’s kind of difficult to do that. You know what I mean? It’s kind of like, No…no. I want Beyoncé.”
Leakes added “It’s very difficult to go to the burger place down the street and think you’re going to get a Happy Meal. I mean, McDonald’s started the Happy Meal.”
