RHOA's Porsha Williams leaves Bravo show after TEN years as she plans wedding to co-star Falynn Guobadia's ex Simon
PORSHA Williams has announced she's leaving Real Housewives of Atlanta after 10 years.
The 40-year-old star posted the news to her Instagram on Thursday but teased that she would be "back on TV very soon."
Porsha has starred on the Bravo show since its fifth season in 2012.
In her post, Porsha shared some memories of her time on the show wrote: "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."
Porsha went on to thank Bravo and show producers as well as her supporters.
She continued, "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."
She ended her note, "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! 😘📚🎉"
CYNTHIA EXITS SHOW
The news comes just days after RHOA star Cynthia Bailey announced she was exiting the show, following rumors that two big stars would be leaving.
The reality star shared the news in an Instagram post as she claimed the decision was "very difficult" but "heartfelt."
Alongside a glamorous photo wearing all black, she wrote: "After much thought and consideration, I have made the very difficult and heartfelt decision not to return for the next season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
"Thank you NBC Universal, Bravo, and Truly Original for over a decade of partnership. I can’t wait to see what we do next!
"Thank you to my Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates for eleven of the most unbelievable years of my life; and the most incredible & UNFORGETTABLE memories!"
She continued: "I am so grateful to have had this amazing journey, and I am anxiously waiting to embark on new adventures.
BRIDE TO BE
Meanwhile, Porsha is preparing to marry fiancé Simon Guobadia.
Simon split from Porsha's co-star Falynn back in April, with the pair putting out joint statements after he filed for divorce.
Just a month later, he announced his engagement to Porsha, whom had previously been invited into the couple's home and was believed to be a close friend.
Porsha posted a loved-up photo of the pair on Instagram, while she insisted she had nothing to do with his divorce from Falynn in the caption.
The mom-of-one said: "Our relationship began a month ago – yes we are crazy in love. I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest.
"I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most."
Porsha has daughter Pilar, two, with ex-fiancé Dennis McKinley.
Simon and Falynn, who had children from their previous relationships, shared a blended family of eight children.
Simon is the biological father to five children – Quentin, Nicole, Christian, Benjamin, and Ximena – all from his previous marriage.
Season 14 of Real Housewives of Atlanta is set to air in April 2022.
