Mary Fitzgerald opened up about her true feelings towards Bre Tiesi joining the new season of the Netflix real estate series, "Selling Sunset."

In August 2022, as the Netflix series geared up for renewal, it was announced that two new Oppenheim Group agents, Nicole Young, and Bre Tiesi, would be featured in its season six and seven, respectively.

However, the real estate broker was not sold on Tiesi joining the cast. Fitzgerald claimed that she was apprehensive of Cannon's baby mama because she feared she might bring too much drama.

"Really thought this was a baby announcement," another fan wrote. A concerned follower wasn't here for the multiple comments disturbing the couple for 'baby-related' news. The fan wrote:

"I know it was her choice to make some aspscts [sic] of their lives public, but that doesn't mean they don't suffer when someone brings out the whole 'baby subject.' They clearly want it so bad and as we saw on the show, it wasn't easy. Let's wish good news for them, may God give them a blessing really soon."
