And another Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star seemingly bites the dust.
On the heels of Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer's shocking exits from the hit Bravo show, Marisa Zanuck, a part-time season-three castmember, has hinted she will also not be returning to the reality TV show despite earlier reports she was in talks to become a full-time Housewife for season four.
"In truth, I have moved past all of the drama, and I don't want to acknowledge it anymore," she posted on her Bravo blog after the season finale Monday night. "This is my final blog and I want to dedicate it to all of you that have supported me immensely throughout this experience."
She continued, addressing her relationship with her husband Dean Zanuck (yes, that's the grandson of legendary Hollywood producer Darryl Zanuck), whom she often insulted and criticized on the show, even causing costar Brandi Glanville to suggest the pair give each other a "hall pass" to save their marriage:
"I have learned so much from this experience and it has changed my life in ways I couldn't have dreamed. My husband Dean and I have grown closer as we discussed the things I've said on the show," she insisted. "I regret many things that I have said without thinking, but my husband and I are deeply in love and after 16 years we know how we truly feel about each other. Dean is an incredible man and he knew that I didn't intend on hurting him."
Finally, she addressed the challenges of being a Bravo star and admits the job isn't as easy as it seems:
"I don't think anyone or anything can prepare someone for becoming a part of the Housewives," she wrote. "A Housewife must be many things: she must be media-savvy and tech-savvy. She must think about what she says and its potential impact, she must have a thick skin to handle the constructive criticism and a sense of humor about her to enjoy the creativity of the many writers that blog the show. A Housewife must also recognize that she is not perfect and be willing to learn from her mistakes. If 10,000 people are telling you that you are being a bitch, they can't all be wrong."
Well said. But now that Marisa knows the tricks of the trade, do you think she'd really give Beverly Hills the boot?
"To answer many of those who are asking!! I'm not sure if I will be asked back to the show for season 4. We all have to wait and see!!!," she posted on her Twitter page in response to the exit reports. "I don't know what I want or if they will even want me back but thank you to everyone who's been so great!!"
Guess the answers not as clear as Lisa Vanderpump's crystals.
