“Well I have over the past 12 years and 10 seasons been a part of this whole franchise, and I’ve been very happy to rally and stand on the platform and be here with all of you, but it is time for me to leave and do something that I want to do that makes my heart happy everyday," she told Andy Cohen in the WWHL Clubhouse. "And so I will be never returning as a Housewife again.”
Then she added, "Nope, never returning as a Housewife again... with the Jersey girls.”
She confirmed she's leaving to start her own cooking channel since “I find my peace in the kitchen.”
You can hear more from her about it in the WWHL clip above.
