LeeAnne revealed on Feb. 25 that she won’t be returning for Season 5 of the Bravo hit. “The last four years have been a trolley-slapping good time but after much consideration, I have made the personal decision to step away from RHOD,” LeeAnne, 52, said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Getting to share my wedding with the viewers last year brought me tremendous joy, however, the season was very personally challenging for me,” she continued. “I am looking forward to stepping away from the cameras and spending quality time with my husband and friends, traveling, but most importantly, getting back to philanthropy, which was my main reason for joining the show.”

She continued, “Thank you to everyone who has laughed and cried with me along the way. It’s been an amazing journey, and yes my pantyliner is still exhausted. There are so many exciting things on my horizon that I can’t wait to share with you.” While fans of LeeAnne’s will be sad to see her go, her exit doesn’t come as a huge surprise.
