Did anyone ever think that this day would come, when the Queen B, NeNe would walk away from the show she made so popular?

"This was definitely a hard decision for me. Me and my husband have been going back and forth on it for weeks now. But my contract is up and I just think this is the right time. This is my opportunity to spread my wings and do different things," Nene said to People Magazine.

But TMZ is reporting that Nene could still have a part-time role with the show ... if the money is right.

Rumor is that she has a major deal in the works with one of the major networks. I guess we will just have to wait and see. At any rate, congrats LaNethia!
