There's no doubt that being on a reality show can be hard at times. In fact, the drama on Vanderpump Rules can get so intense that it has had Ariana Madix think of quitting the show "all the time," she told The Daily Dish podcast. Specifically, there's one moment coming up on Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules that had Ariana seriously considering walking away.

"There's one [moment] this season that you saw in the preview that I literally openly was just like, I can't do this anymore," Ariana revealed. (See that moment for yourself in the clip above.)

But that's not the only time Ariana thought of leaving it all behind.

"There's been a few," she admitted. "I feel like what ends up happening is that if I'm watching the show, in the moment, I'll feel a certain way. And then, like, seven months later, the show's airing and something will just feel worse when it comes back because then it's like maybe that person you're confiding in said something sassy in their interview and you're like well, f--k you, man, that sucks."

She continued, "And then you have the opinions of millions of people online and you're just like, you don't know me or anyone on the show. I appreciate you watching it and that's lovely, you know. But to speak about somebody on that level sometimes can be a little intense. Those are the moments that I'm just like... but then I think about it and I'm like, oh, the good far outweighs the bad. And I honestly feel like instead of being frustrated with the status quo of a situation, I feel like I'd rather stick in the situation and change it."

Catch Ariana on Vanderpump Rules every Tuesday at 9/8c. Preview below.
