Yep! Nene surprised her RHOA family at the cast retreat. And production did a pretty good job keeping it under wraps, too.
"Everything went down last night. We’re still here shooting," says the source. "Nene shot a couple of scenes in Atlanta last week, but none of the other women knew, and only a select number of production crew knew it was happening."
Arguably one of the biggest stars on the show, Nene's initial departure news sent shock waves throughout the fan community. She made the announcement on Instagram, writing, "With lots of thoughts and prayer I've decided to step out on faith and not fear," along with a photo of herself on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, tagging the pic "#nomoRHOA4me."
