Bye Bye NeNe Leakes
Bad news, Real Housewives of Atlanta fans. After more than seven years of being on the show, NeNe Leakes has announced that she will not return for the eighth season. “This was definitely a hard decision for me,” she told People. “Me and my husband 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.” She announced the news on Twitter as well, writing, “This is so hard for me to write! I cry as do I so!”

“I feel a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders,” she said. “There were times when I was a target. I won’t miss the negativity.” NeNe is one of the few Housewives to break into scripted television, having appeared on both Glee andThe New Normal. She told People that she plans to continue this streak with a “new primetime television show with a big legend,” which will begin filming this week. In the meantime, you can see a cartoon version of NeNe in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. She and Kim want to take you to brunch!
