All good things come to an end!
“💕After ten life-changing, gratifying, incredible years, it is finally time to begin my next chapter,” the 40-year-old reality star began her statement via Instagram on Thursday, September 30. “Next season, I will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise.”
“This was a difficult decision to not only make, but also come to terms with,” she continued. “It's one I have put a lot of thought into and because of that, I know it's the right one.”
The former Dish Nation host thanked producers at Bravo and her fans for their undying support over the years.
“I have so much love and endless gratitude for my Bravo family and supporters. You’ve made the past decade a truly special one,” Williams explained. “One where I've dealt with unbelievable highs and unbelievable lows, and I can honestly say I would not have made it through some of them without the unconditional love and support I have gotten from all of you.”
Fans of the beloved reality TV star fret not as she teased she won’t be gone from the small screen for long.
“Don't worry though, I’ll be back on your TV very soon 😉 I can't wait to share all of my exciting new endeavors with the world-beginning with the release of my memoir, The Pursuit of Porsha, out on November 16. As for the rest, you’ll just have to wait and see! Love ya! 😘📚🎉,” she concluded her sweet message.
Her famous pals wished her well on her future plans. “What a run. What an evolution. As we discussed, I’m gonna go ahead and consider this more of a PAUSE than a goodbye ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” mega-producer Andy Cohen wrote, while Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant commented: “Onwards and Upwards! 👏🏼👊🏽💪🏽.”
Olympian Sanya Richards-Ross is being eyed as a potential replacement. The track star is already gearing up to begin filming with the ladies, reported LOVEBSCOTT. If all goes well, and the audience takes to her, producers will crown her as a full-time cast member.
