Well, that didn't last long. NeNe Leakes announced her departure from "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" on Monday evening. And just two days later, she has landed another job -- and it's pretty major.
The 47-year-old former "Housewives" star will be appearing on "To Tell the Truth," a game show being revived by ABC. She will appear on the show alongside Betty White and a third panelist that has yet to be named. Each week three contestants will appear on the show where they'll have to convince NeNe, Betty and their co-star of something, whether it be that they've invented something, made some great discovery or something else. The show will be hosted by "Blackish" star Anthony Anderson. NeNe confirmed the big news on her website on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, it was announced that NeNe would be leaving Bravo's "RHOA." She had been with the show since it premiered in 2008. While she did not give a reason for leaving, it was widely believed that the network simply refused to provide her with the pay she felt she deserved for appearing on the series, so she quit. She has, however, recieved and open invitation to return any time she'd like from the show's executive producer, Bravo's Andy Cohen.
Although NeNe is done with "Housewives," she hasn't sworn of reality TV just yet. In addition to her new primetime gig, NeNe will be starring in a spinoff series alongside former frenemy Kim Zolciak-Biermann. The show, which is titled "The Road to Riches," will follow the ex "RHOA" stars as they travel the conuntry in search of adventure and are pushed way outside their comfort zones.
No premiere date has been set for either show. NeNe has, however, confirmed that filming for "To Tell the Truth" will begin filming Thursday.
