Porsha Williams took to social media on Thursday to officially announce her departure from the Bravo hit reality series, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
In a lengthy message posted on her Instagram page, Porsha said it was a “difficult decision to make,” but it’s finally time for her to begin her next chapter.
Read her full statement below:
💕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.
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.
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! 😘📚🎉

Andy Cohen responded to Porsha’s statement and suggested in a very subtle way that she’ll be back.
What a run. What an evolution. As we discussed, I’m gonna go ahead and consider this more of a PAUSE than a goodbye ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Kandi Burruss reacted saying she was hoping the news wasn’t true.
I was hoping you weren’t 4real leaving. Wishing you the best on all you’ve got going on! ❤️

I’m sure Porsha’s fans are greatly disappointed by the news considering she has so much juicy juice going on in her life.
But, if Andy Cohen is right…the tea will just be deferred.
