Here are her words about her decision to once again pursue other activities.
RHOC has given me a great platform and I’m grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time. I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity. After a family vote, it was unanimous that I should take a break. Sometimes the people who love us the most see things even we don’t see. I trust my path and I’m excited for what the future holds.
Bravo and Evolution have been amazing to me and I have made great friendships. I treasure all my fans and appreciate all the love and support. I’ve been honored to be a source of entertainment and inspiration to all of you and I hope to continue spreading light and love.
Being a full-time mom to THREE little boys, publisher of NOBLEMAN Magazine, blogger, jewelry designer, author, and wife, I have a lot going on! I will continue to share my life and faith and use this platform to be a lightworker.
I grew up on TV and love the entertainment business. I can’t help and be a little sad for my departure but 100% feel it is the best for me and my family. Lots of other dreams to make come true in my life and in no way do I want to make a career out of being a housewife. That just isn’t me. Life is short and I choose to focus on what makes me happy and brings me joy.
After season 8, I decided to take a break and write a book and have my third baby. That was the right decision for me although many people didn’t understand why I would walk away. Gods plan is always good and it was the perfect timing for me with the launch of NOBLEMAN Magazine to return for season 12. I feel it is now, the perfect twist to once again hang up my orange.
I know I am probably the only one, but I will miss Lydia. She’s quirky and different from the other ladies and brought a different point of view. She was also one of the wealthiest housewives on the show, if not the wealthiest.
We are all presuming that Peggy will not be back and Evolution has been casting new housewives for months now, so hopefully we will be hearing from Peggy next. There are already a lot of rumors about the replacements. I’ll start paying attention to that once filming starts in the near future.
Will anyone else but me miss Lydia, or her crazy mama?
