After only one season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Marisa Zanuck is leaving the show. The reality star told Celebuzz matter-of-factly: "I wasn't asked back. It's as simple as that and I'm OK with it."
And Zanuck has no ill will toward the show. "Housewives was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I am grateful that Bravo gave me the opportunity to step into their crazy world," she said. "I have no regrets and nothing but love for the amazing viewers that were so kind to take time out of their day and reach out to me on Twitter and comment on my blogs. We will definitely keep in touch."
"Let's be honest, nobody is going to quit the show unless they have a spin-off because they either need the money or have a business to promote," she added. "If a housewife doesn't fall into those two categories, then perhaps she was attracted to the show by the lure of fame and in that case won't be giving it up anytime soon."
So will Zanuck come back to reality TV in another capacity? "I'm not sure," she said. " I think the danger of reality television is that some people can become consumed by it."
Fair enough. We wish her the best!
