Kandi Burruss announced that she will not be returning to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the Bravo reality series she has appeared on since 2009. She discussed her decision with Variety‘s Marc Malkin on the Grammys red carpet on Sunday.

“I’m not really keeping up right now,” she said, when asked about the show. “I’m not keeping up. I already said it, so I’ll tell you. I decided I’m not coming back this year. It’s been 14 seasons, and they allowed us to sit around for a little too long, but during that time I had started working on a lot of other things, and I got some nice big projects coming soon, so I’m super excited about those things.

“But it’s not just that,” she continued. “It’s just like, after you really have time to think, and a friend of mine was like, ‘Why do you keep doing it?’ And I was like, ‘Well, I think because I’ve just been doing it for so long, it feels weird to think not to do it?’ So I was just like, ‘You know what? I’m going to take a break, I’m going to take a moment… I’m not coming back this year.’”

Burruss joined “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” during the second season and is the longest-serving cast member. Beyond reality television, she is a founding member of R&B group Xscape, as well as a celebrated songwriter, with co-writing credits on hits such as TLC’s “No Scrubs” and Destiny’s Child’s “Bills, Bills, Bills.”
