Submitted by on June 30, 2015 – 1:05 pmNo Comment

It’s the end of an era for Real Housewives of Atlanta fans. Monday, the show’s last remaining original cast member, Nene Leakes, announced she would not return for season 8.

Nene announced the news on her Facebook page, saying in a post, “This is so hard for me to type! I cry as I do so! After seven seasons, I am so grateful for all the love and laughs! I can confirm that I have decided not to return to RHOA for the eighth season.”

Nene went on to acknowledge everyone who was a part of her RHOA journey, saying, “Thank you everyone that has watched and supported me over the years on this amazing platform! Special thanks to Andy Cohen, True Entertainment, & Bravo for giving me the opportunity to show the world Nene Leakes and sometimes give them NayNay.”

The 48-year-old is one of the Bravo network’s biggest stars, and used her RHOA platform to build a very profitable brand and a career as an actress. She teased one of her upcoming post-RHOA projects in an interview with PEOPLE, telling the mag, “I’m actually going to be doing a new primetime television show with a big legend. All of my fans will get to see me be really happy, witty and funny and tell all of those one liners that I always have said on Housewives.”
