The one-season wonder curse strikes again!
Real Housewives newbies Noella Bergener and Dr. Jennifer Armstrong won’t be returning for season 17 of the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Noella was the first to announce she wouldn’t be back for another season.
“After a wild season of ups and downs, I will not be returning to The Real Housewives of Orange County,” Noella wrote via her Instagram Story on Friday, July 8. “Thank you to all of the fans for all of the love and support during quite possibly the hardest year of my life. I am looking forward to brighter skies ahead and can’t wait to share what’s next.”
Moments later Jen shared the news of her exit in a post on Instagram.
“I loved opening up about being a working mom on Real Housewives of Orange County. I am so grateful to have the privilege to talk about my father, my kids, and a real modern relationship on national television,” she wrote, “My family and my work are the most important aspects of my life, so I am stepping away from RHOC and focusing on them.”
She added that she was “grateful for the friends I have made,” and for the “next chapter.”
“There are so many exciting things to come, so stay tuned,” Jen concluded.
RHOC is set to return for season 17 in late 2022 or early 2023.
