Porsha Williams is leaving The Real Housewives of Atlanta


The Real Housewives of Atlanta has lost another cast member in Porsha Williams, who's been around since season 5.

Just days after veteran Cynthia Bailey walked away from the reality TV series, Williams released a statement on Instagram on September 30 detailing her decision.

"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.

"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," she wrote to her 6.6 million followers.

"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.

"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."
