Sanya Richards-Ross to exit Real Housewives of Atlanta ahead of season 16

After just two seasons, Sanya Richards-Ross is departing from Real Housewives of Atlanta.

It has been confirmed by Andy Cohen during his Andy Cohen Live show that the Olympic track and field star, 39, has decided to step away from the show amidst the unusually long hiatus in between filming seasons 15 and 16.


“How do you feel about Kandi, Sanya and Mario leaving the show?” questioned Andy to his guest, Mariah Smith.

The clip went viral in no time on the internet with social media accounts sharing their expression of shock over Andy so casually announcing another major participant exiting from the series, following the footsteps of Maria Hampton and Kandi Burruss, who were earlier confirmed to leave.

One of the fans in a post on X pointed out that Sanya’s departure was only casually dropped by Andy and not yet made official in press.

Sanya, who recently welcomed her second child with husband, Aaron Ross, in December, is yet to confirm her exit from the show.
