Another peach is saying peace out to the Real Housewives of Atlanta!
On Thursday, September 30, Porsha Williams announced her exit from RHOA after 10 seasons on the show.
“After ten life-changing, gratifying, incredible years, it is finally time to begin my next chapter. Next season, I will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise,” Porsha wrote on Instagram. “This was a difficult decision to not only make but also come to terms with. It’s one I have put a lot of thought into and because of that, I know it’s the right one. I want to thank Bravo, Truly Original, and Andy Cohen for this opportunity, and all the show’s producers, editors, and assistants, for working tirelessly every day to create our show.”
She continued, “I have so much love and endless gratitude for my Bravo family and supporters. You’ve made the past decade a truly special one. 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.”
Porsha then hinted that fans will see her back on their TV screens very soon.
“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 added.
Andy Cohen commented on Porsha’s post and commended her on an amazing “run” on the franchise. He also insists that he’s not considering this an exit but merely a “pause.”
“What a run. What an evolution. As we discussed, I’m gonna go ahead and consider this more of a PAUSE than a goodbye,” Andy said.
Filming for season 14 is scheduled to begin sometime in October, and the season will likely premiere on Bravo in early Spring 2022.
