Cynthia Bailey is giving up her peach.

The star of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” 54, announced on social media Monday that she is leaving the Bravo series after 11 seasons.

“After much thought and consideration, I have made the very difficult and heartfelt decision not to return for the next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta,” she captioned a photo of herself on Instagram.

“Thank you NBC Universal, Bravo, and Truly Original for over a decade of partnership. I can’t wait to see what we do next!”

The “Housewives” alum then thanked her former 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,” Bailey added.

To her followers, she wrote, “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,” Bailey concluded, “and I look forward to sharing it with all of you.”

A source close to production confirmed to Page Six that Bailey’s departure was her decision and that “her statement is accurate.”

Bravo declined to comment.

Rumblings over whether Bailey would be renewing her contract began over the summer after Wendy Williams told the reality star in June that she should be fired from “RHOA.”

“Let me tell you why, because there’s nothing more exciting that you can give to us,” the outspoken talk show host, 57, said at the time. “I don’t want to see you fight, I don’t want to see you get divorced, like, I think it’s time.”

Bailey, who tied the knot with husband Mike Hill in October 2020, responded, “God’s will, not my will, be done. I’ve had an amazing run, it’s been 11 amazing years as a consistent peach holder.”

Although the Bailey Agency founder will no longer be on “RHOA,” fans will get to see her again soon on Bravo’s upcoming all-star crossover series, “The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip.”

The show — which also features fan favorites Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Kyle Richards of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and Bailey’s buddy from “RHOA,” Kenya Moore — is set to premiere this fall on NBC’s streaming platform, Peacock.
