Yolanda Hadid has announced that after four seasons, she will be leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The famous mama to Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid took to Instagram to announce her departure:

‘I would have loved a more graceful exit then [sic] “Season 6” but sometimes we don’t get to control the endings of the chapters in our life… I believe that every exit is an [sic] new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on my recovery and bring back the privacy within our home.’

The 52-year-old continued, ‘Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years. I am grateful for the housewife experience and all it has thought [sic] me. I’am [sic] excited about this choice and look forward to the next chapter of my life.’

During her time on the show, we’ve seen Yolanda’s battle with Lyme disease (which the other Housewives questioned), the rise of her kids’ modelling careers and the breakdown of her marriage to husband David Foster. Understandably, Yolanda now wishes to continue to live her life away from the cameras.

Following her announcement, the show’s network Bravo also released a statement, saying, ‘Yolanda was a great addition to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Along with our viewers, we have enjoyed and appreciated Yolanda sharing her life events, especially more recently as she struggled with Lyme Disease. We now respect her decision to focus on her health and family. We wish her a full recovery and hope to see her again sometime on the show.’
