It’s been considered a possibility for years, but fiery original housewife Nene Leakes has decided to quit the show that made her famous. In an announcement to People magazine, Leakes said: “This was definitely a hard decision for me. Me and my husband have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things.”

I’m guessing this means she’ll pursue her acting career. She’ll be back for that huge cheque soon enough.

Fear not, reality fans, Leakes, 47, is still expected to team-up with former housewives friend and foe Kim Zolciak in a new reality show called NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches.
