K. Michelle says she’s ready for “something bigger” that doesn’t include the Love & Hip Hop franchise.

The singer and reality star took to Instagram Wednesday, to announce she’s stepping away from the VH1 juggernaut to focus on a new show.

“For 6 years of my life I was on a show called Love and Hip Hop it really helped me reach a lot of my goals at that time, I’ll never knock that blessing,” she began.

“But I knew in my heart, I could no longer participate in something I was not passionate about, and had no desire to be on camera with any of the cast,” she continued. “I just didn’t care. I knew it was time for something bigger than throwing drinks. I wanted to turn my pain into purpose.”

“So it’s finally here. I start filming my new show on Lifetime in Feb and it’s such an amazing feeling to not only watch your dreams come true but to KNOW ILL BE HELPING WOMEN TO LIVE,” she wrote.

In the caption of her post, she added “Feb is go time??” and tagged Lifetime and producers Jesse Collins (American Soul), Carlos King (Belle Collective) and Scott Shatsky (Top Chef).
