‘Real Housewives’ car­ry­ing on with­out Leakes

Re­al­ity star says she’s step­ping away on faith

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NeNe Leakes is mov­ing on from “The Real Housewives of At­lanta.”

The Bravo chan­nel said that Leakes won’t re­turn for the re­al­ity show’s eighth sea­son this fall. She’s been with the se­ries about the lives of women in At­lanta since it be­gan in 2008.

In an In­sta­gram post ear­lier this week, Leakes called the show an “amaz­ing plat­form,” adding that she’s de­cided to step out, in her words, “on faith and not fear.”

Andy Co­hen, ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer of the “Real Housewives” fran­chise, tweeted that Leakes is a “Real House­wife for­ever” and is al­ways welcome back.

The 48-year-old Leakes par­layed her re­al­ity TV fame into an ap­pear­ance on “Celebrity Ap­pren­tice,” roles on shows in­clud­ing “Glee” and “The New Nor­mal,” and a fash­ion col­lec­tion.
