Los Angeles: TV personality NeNe Leakes has confirmed she has quit ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ after being on the show for seven years.
The 47-year-old actress, who is one of the original cast members of the reality tv show, said she won't be appearing in season eight, as her contract is up and it's the right time to move on to other things, reported People Magazine.
"This was definitely a hard decision for me. Me and my husband (Gregg Leakes) have been going back and forth on it for weeks now.
But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things. I feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders," NeNe said.
The ‘Glee’ star earlier also confirmed the news on her Instagram account and thanked fans for their support.
"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 (sic)," NeNe said.
