NeNe Leakes is saying “Bye, Felicia” to the show responsible for making her a household name. After seven seasons on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe is hanging up her peach for bigger and better opportunities.

“My contract is up and I just think this is the right time,” NeNe told People. “This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”

Besides starring in the super successful Bravo franchise, NeNe has been making a name for herself outside of the Housewives world for years. A few of her professional highlights include a recurring role on Glee, a starring role on Broadway, and the creation of her own clothing line.

The 47-year-old said the decision to leave the RHOA wasn’t easy. “This was definitely a hard decision for me. Me and my husband have been going back and forth on it for weeks now.”

Despite the tough choice, NeNe feels relieved to move on. “I feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders,” she revealed.

NeNe addressed her fans directly, saying:

 

This is so hard for me to type! I cry as I do so! I am so Grateful for all the love and laughs! Thank you so much to everyone that has watched and supported me over the years on this amazing platform! With lots of thoughts and prayer I’ve decided to step out on faith and not fear #nomoRHOA4me

So what’s next on the docket for NeNe? Primetime TV!

“I’m actually going to be doing a new primetime television show with a big legend,” NeNe teased. “All of my fans will get to see me be really happy, witty and funny and tell all of those one liners that I always have said on Housewives.”

She begins filming on her mystery project this week.

One thing is for sure, The Real Housewives of Atlanta will never be the same!

 

Enjoy a few of NeNe’s most notable one-liners:

“Close your legs to married men!”

“I’m very rich, b!%ch!”

“I’m a size 10. I could be a size 8 if I wanted to, but I’m effin hungry.”

“Is your wig squeezing your head too tight?”

“I’m way too young and too fabulous to be a grandma. I’m a glam-mom.”

“Bloop bloop!”

We wish NeNe all the best as she begins this new chapter! #BloopBloop

    Goodbye, you poo stirring, ill-mannered, word-breaking fool.
    “I’m very rich, b!%ch!”

    Then it’s a shame that you couldn’t part with what I’m sure you consider a measly 20k for charity to Detroit Public Schools that was your idea to donate in the first place.

    I guess it’s a good thing. Your son keeps heading the way of Apollo, and you’ll need all the money you can get your meaty Amazon sized fists on to keep him from being Apollo’s cellmate.

    Buh bye.

      Why so salty. You mad or nah??

      • Bruja

        Not mad or salty at all. Not a single tear shed here. On the contrary, I think myself, and others are thrilled to see her thirsty behind go

        Again, she’s so busy bragging and trying (and failing) to one up someone, she stung a bunch of a kids. Kids. She’s pathetic.
