After four seasons on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Sheree Whitfield is saying bye-bye to Bravo.

Appearing alongside NeNe Leakes, Kim Zolciak, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey on the primetime hit, Whitfield, 42, tells Wetpaint.com she is now a "free agent."

"After four solid seasons of helping Bravo build the show into its most successful Housewives franchise, I have decided to leave," Whitfield told Wetpaint, which first reported her departure. "The direction the show is going in is no longer a fit for my lifestyle. I'm tired of the fighting and the cattiness."

"I want to be part of something that empowers and inspires women to not only be healthy, but to treat themselves with respect," says Whitfield, who helms her own clothing line She by Sheree. "I wish the rest of the women the best of luck. I'm thrilled to say I'm now a free agent and am already fielding offers."
