Eight years after beginning her journey on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," the star, 47, is moving away from reality and dipping her hand into primetime TV.
"This was definitely a hard decision for me," Leakes told People about leaving the show. "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."
Fans don't fret though, the sassy housewife will still be appearing on the small screen.
"I'm actually going to be doing a new primetime television show with a big legend," she shared. "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."
However TMZ says NeNe is open to a part-time role on 'RHOA'
