Reality star and television actress NeNe Leakes has resigned from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. She posted the news on social media earlier this evening with the following caption:

“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.”

Leakes was the highest paid housewife of all the Bravo Real Housewives franchises and was the only original member left on the Atlanta show. While she did not indicate what her next steps would be, I’m sure she will focus more time on her clothing line and her acting career. Leakes starred on Broadway earlier this year in Cinderella and most recently appeared on Live with Kelly and Michael as a fill-in for Kelly Ripa.

Best of Luck NeNe!
