NeNe Leakes is in good spirits a day after confirming she is departing Real Housewives of Atlanta after 12 seasons.
NeNe posted a boudoir photo that showed her wearing a lacy negligee on Friday. The former stripper captioned the heavily Photoshopped photo, "Sometimes you have to hit the reset button."
NeNe's unmade bed was blurred out in the background of the photo.
NeNe confirmed her exit from RHOA in a video on her YouTube channel on Thursday. "I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation," she said.
NeNe tried to save face by claiming she made the decision to leave.
"There's been a lot of emotion flying from both sides. It has been hard, and I have made the very hard and very difficult decision to not be a part of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta,' Season 13. It wasn't an easy decision for me. It was hard."
Word has it that the producers thought NeNe, at age 52, wasn't connecting with Gen-Z. Her constant rants and jabs at everyone from her castmates to producers grew tiresome.
"I'm just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened up doors for black ensemble reality shows," she said.
She thanked Bravo's producers for "all the memories, the laughs, the tears."
Bravo isn't done cleaning house. Other aging cast members who will be phased out next year reportedly include Cynthia Bailey, 53, Kenya Moore, 49, and Kandi Burruss, 44.
