In addition, Bob has agreed to pay up $1,000 a month for the next 12 months before going back to the original $2,142 payments.

"After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave," she told Wetpaint. "The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I'm tired of the fighting and the cattiness."

Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres on Sunday November 4 9/8c.
