She made up her mind. NeNe Leakes announced her exit from The Real Housewives of Atlanta after much speculation as to her future on the Bravo reality series.

Leakes is proud of her legacy on the show despite her departure. “I’m just so happy that I can say that I was part of a genre that opened up a door for Black ensemble reality shows,” she noted. “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 of the memories.”
