Real Housewives of Atlanta is losing it’s biggest star, as longtime cast member and undisputed fan favorite NeNe Leakes bas announced she is leaving the Bravo series after 7 seasons. Leakes broke the news to her fans on Twitter, linking back to a People Magazine report.
A staple of the hit series since its first season, Leakes is leaving to pursue other opportunities. “[M]y contract is up and I just think this is the right time,” she told People. “This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”
Among those different things is a new series that she’ll begin filming this week with “a big legend”. The series, and that series’ network, have not been announced.
