Crystal Kung Minkoff confirmed that she would not be returning to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for Season 14 in a video posted to her Instagram account on April 15. Crystal and her family, including her husband, Rob Minkoff, had appeared on the show since Season 11.

"It's very bittersweet," the mother of two said in the video. "Never did I think I would be asked to do this show in a million years, let alone film it for three seasons. Every single year I was asked back, it was a blessing, it was an honor."

Crystal's friends and family took to the comments of the post to share their reactions to her big news. But there was no comment that was more fitting than her husband's, who expressed his sadness for the future.

Rob hilariously stated his regrets for not doing more in the comments of Crystal's Instagram post on April 15. 

Rob Minkoff's comment on Crystal Kung Minkoff's Instagram post.

"And I was really planning to 'bring it' this season," Rob commented, which was since gotten more than 6,000 likes as of press time. Although no one will know what Rob was planning to "bring" come Season 14, he already brought so much to the show.

It will be impossible to forget his dance moves at Garcelle Beauvais' 55th birthday party in Season 12, where he busted a move on the dance floor. "Rob...he loves to dance," Crystal said during a confessional in the episode. "Our friends call him 'Hip-Hop Rob' — that's his nickname actually."

In fact, Crystal told The Daily Dish in 2021 that she thinks Rob should be on the cast of a reality TV show. "[Rob] deserves his own show because he's such a great person, honestly," she said. "He's so humble, and that personality trait to me is number one. My dad was super humble and Rob just has that and he's so talented and he doesn't even talk about it. I don't even think he realizes his talent, you know?"
