A couple of weeks before Marlo's announcement, Kandi revealed she was "going to take a break" from the Bravo reality show she appeared on since 2009.

At the time, she said, "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."

Marlo and Sanya announced their departures earlier this year.

A couple of weeks later, Sanya Richards-Ross announced she was out of RHOA after 2 seasons.

“I’ve been going back and forth and I think because they gave us such a long break, I had a lot of time to do other things and I’ve got some big announcements to make coming soon, so yeah,” she said. “I mean, I love the girls, they’re my friends, I’m still gonna see them and hang out with them. And Bravo is my family, I love them as well, but you know.”
