Some have rumored for years that she would leave, but she’s ALWAYS returned. The OG of the ATL is no more. This is a bittersweet moment and an interesting one as well. The show has filmed without her for the majority of the past three seasons, however she’s been there in some capacity and the fact that she herself confirmed her exit is the most shocking development for the show this casting season. Filming started today in Atlanta and I’ve heard some definite casting rumors, but this one.. no one saw coming. We wish you well NeNe! Thank you for 7 glorious seasons!
