Erica Mena is saying a big farewell to The Big Apple.

The Love & Hip Hop: New York star announced today that she is leaving the VH1 series that made her (sort of) famous.

"I have fan base that now become my family! I can’t thank you all enough for following & riding this ride. You are all appreciated," Mena wrote on Instagram, adding:

"No matter what I’m always going to be Open and Real with you all. This chapter has ended but the real deal is the journey has just begun."

Mena has hinted in the past that she’d step away from the franchise after she marries rapper Bow Wow, a wedding likely scheduled for next month.

"Four years ago became #MenaMonday," Mena also wrote. "I let the world in and it’s been a crazy ride since. I’ve always been open about who I am & my relationships just because I know my story was meant to be told. I’ve made many mistakes and I get judge[d] harshly.

"Thank God I’m as tough and bold as I am because the truth is many are like me."

Fortunately, we can always watch Love & Hip Hop online to relive Mena’s best episodes.

And fortunately Ray J is not leaving Love & Hip: Hollywood after coming to a new deal with producers. PHEW!
