Just when reports were swirling that Kim Zolciak would be coming back to The Real Housewives of Atlanta for Season 9, NeNe Leakes has revealed that she will not be returning to the show.

On Tuesday morning, Leakes revealed on Twitter that producers did not ask her to return for the new season, as a full- or part-time cast member. “I wasn’t asked 2 b a full time housewife or part time but they got Sheree & I think Kim Z” she said.

When asked if she was bitter by one Twitter follower Leakes responded, “Never bitter! Please support them.”

The news is pretty shocking since Leakes has always bragged about being an “OG” on the show. Last season, Leakes only appeared as a part-time cast member, as she was juggling other projects.

No word from Bravo on the casting changes for this season. But network head honcho and Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen did post a few teary-faced laugh emojis after Leakes said: “I wish the single housewives of ATL the best.”

“Black Lightning” premieres today, but if you’re expecting just another superhero series you’re in for so much more!

The series, created by Salim and Mara Brock Akil, focuses on retired superhero Jefferson Pierce, played by Cress Williams. Pierce returns to a life of fighting crime in order to protect his family, friends and community as a whole. That alone, and the fact that he’s a Black superhero, is enough of a reason to watch the highly anticipated show … but wait, theres more.

While chatting with Williams at the NAACP Image Awards, the seasoned actor opened up about the fact that “Black Lightning” is actually a family drama with “a little superhero sprinkled on top.” The title character not only saves the day, but he’s a single dad who has custody of his daughters and connects with his community as the principal of the local school.

The show also tackles topics like Black Lives Matter, police brutality, racism and more. And Cress promises, “it’s a show that has something for everyone.”

“Black Lightning” premieres non the CW tonight, Tuesday, January 16th at 9/8c.
