Drew Sidora was missing in action at BravoCon 2023.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star skipped the Bravo fan convention in Las Vegas, despite previously being announced to appear on the 'Viva Las Atlanta Peaches' panel Friday with her costars.

Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Marlo Hampton, Sanya Richards-Ross and Shereé Whitfield sat on the panel without Sidora, spilling the team on their jaw-dropping season with moderator X Mayo.

PEOPLE reached out to a rep for Sidora. A Bravo rep had no comment.

Sidora's absence comes amid her ongoing divorce to Ralph Pittman, which a source close the star tells PEOPLE still isn't settled. The two remain in mediation and have yet to agree to a settlement.

Sidora and Pittman first met in 2013, while she was visiting Los Angeles to promote her performance as Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins in the VH1 original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story — though they didn't begin dating until the following March. Pittman proposed in June 2014, just three months after their first date. They wed that August, exchanging vows at sunset on the beach.

The former couple are parents to son Machai, 8, and daughter Aniya, 5. Sidora also is mom to son Josiah, 12, from a previous relationship.

Fans first met the family of five when Sidora joined RHOA in season 13. It didn't take long to see the cracks in their romance, with Sidora and Pittman getting into a fight during their anniversary dinner in the season's second episode.

Signs of trouble continued throughout the years until they officially called it quits, lobbying dual divorce filings just 61 minutes apart on March 3, 2023 — days after production officially wrapped on season 15.

In Sidora's petition, filed first, she lodged an explosive set of allegations against her Pittman, including claims he was a "serial cheater and adulterer" who abused her both mentally and financially and even got "physically aggressive" with her at one point.

“Everything in the petition I obviously stand by," she told PEOPLE in June. "It was just a culmination of things that should not happen in a marriage. And I think the inability to own it, the inability to apologize, the inability to work through it, the inability to care about my emotional state and wanting to work and heal that, was very challenging.”

But Pittman denied all her claims in a response filing, insisting he was never unfaithful or abusive.

"I love my wife with all my heart. It is no secret that marriage is a challenging journey, one that is not for the faint of heart,” he told PEOPLE, also in June. “My family means the world to me and I've dedicated myself to providing support, encouragement and acting as a pillar of strength for my wife and children.”

“Although we know the real reason that ultimately led to my request for divorce, I'm taking this time to be more introspective and working to become the best version of myself,” he continued. “I stand by my response to the petition, however I sincerely apologize for my part in the deterioration of our relationship. As seasons change, I'm hopeful and optimistic for brighter days ahead."

Sidora's BravoCon absence also comes as speculation grows that Bravo executives might be planning a full reboot of the series for season 16, in the same vein as they did Real Housewives of New York City for season 14.

Production on RHOA would typically be up, though executive producer Andy Cohen has said the show it taking a small pause to figure things out.

Asked about the reboot rumors at BravoCon on Saturday, Cohen told the audience that while the success of RHONY taught up that a recast "can be done and done well," he doesn't believe that'll be happening to RHOA anytime soon.

"I always love building with what we have," he said. "I think Atlanta has some really strong building blocks that are already there and we have a growth opportunity for Atlanta."

BravoCon 2023 is continuing through Sunday, Nov. 5 as Caesars Forum in Las Vegas.
