“I appreciate the bond of friendship that I’ve made with my castmates and strong personal relationships I have with numerous executives and producers of Bravo,” she said in a statement.
“I am thankful for the opportunity I was provided, however, after speaking with my family and representatives, I believe that what I hope to accomplish for the culture and community will be better served by focusing on other opportunities.”
“I look forward to serving the community on Ricky Smiley Morning show and finding other ways to be a voice during this transformational time during our country for people of color,” she continued.
Marcille originally joined the cast of RHOA in 2017 as a “friend of the Housewives” but quickly proved herself and was promoted to full-time Housewife by season 11.
Marcille also shared that her new future plans include a lot of time spent with family and her three children.
“I believe my time is up. I have a 6-year-old daughter and two young boys still in diapers. They are 24 hours a day and there is a lot of work to be done. I decided to spend my time and energy focusing on my kids and my community,” she said. “And not so much reality show business.”
