52-year-old NeNe posted a video on her YouTube channel breaking the news.
there has been a lot of emotion flying from both sides. it has been hard, and i have made the very hard and difficult decision to not be a part of real housewives of atlanta season 13.
NeNe made it clear that her decision was not an easy one for her at all. She is proud of the name she has made for herself on the show.
i’m just so happy that i can say that i was a part of a genre that opened up doors for black ensemble reality shows. i want to thank everybody that has looked up to me over the years.. i want to thank bravo for all the memories… thank you to the cast for all the memories.
NeNe was one of the original housewives when the show premiered back in 2008. She did leave once back in 2015 just before season 8 but made her way back in 2017 for season 10. As she leaves just ahead of season 13 she concluded her video by letting the fans know that she is going to miss them.
