“I started on The Real Housewives of Atlanta in 2008. We took off like a rocket. I mean, we took off,” NeNe told fans in a YouTube message. “You could have never told me that I [would have] starred on this little show and it still be going strong 13, 14 years later — and it is. 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 to step up and be a part of what we all now love so much: reality TV.”
“We wish Nene all the best in her future endeavors and thank her for sharing her journey for over a decade with the fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Bravo said in a statement to The Daily Dish. “She’s been instrumental since the start and will truly be missed, and maybe one day she’ll hold the peach again.”
