Three days after Cynthia Bailey revealed she won’t be returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for season 14, Porsha Williams announced she’s leaving too.

Porsha broke the news to fans Thursday, Sept. 30, on Instagram with a statement saying it’s time to move on from the Bravo reality series.

“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,” Williams wrote. “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.”

She went on to give a shoutout to Bravo, the show’s staff, and producer Andy Cohen.

“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,” she continued. “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.”

Bravo responded with a picture of Porsha on Twitter and included the caption: “We wish this fabulous Georgia Peach nothing but the best.”

Fans took to social media in droves to say they’re disappointed Porsha won’t be returning to RHOA.

Twitter user @DoubleDeeQue wrote: “First Phaedra, then Nene and now Porsha.. yeah I have absolutely no reason to watch #RHOA now.”

Twitter user @Mihrimah_FS added: “Nene and Cynthia and Porsha gone….. damn #RHOA This just too much rn.”

Twitter user @sylviamphofe posted: “Just like clockwork. No Cynthia, No Porsha, No Nene just throw the whole franchise away at this point #RHOA.”

While @yesoneverything added: “What the hell is #RHOA without Nene, Phaedra, Cynthia & Porsha ????”

Fans may not have to wait long to see more of Porsha on TV. As previously reported, she has a new limited three-part series in the works at Bravo about her life and her family.
