How to Watch

"I loved opening up about being a working mom on [The] Real Housewives of Orange County. I am so grateful to have had the privilege to talk about my father, my kids, and a real modern relationship on national television. My family and my work are the most important aspects of my life, so I am stepping away from RHOC and focusing on them," she said in a statement on Friday, July 8 about her exit. "Thank you to everyone who has reached out in support - especially from the working moms. Women can really have it all if you work for it. I believe in you, and I’ll still be here to chat about it with you. I love inspiring people to be their best. I am forever grateful for the friends I made, and the lovely people at [Bravo and Evolution Media]. Here’s to the next chapter, and I hope you’ll follow along for the journey. There are so many exciting things to come, so stay tuned."

Dr. Jen first joined the RHOC cast in Season 16 and during her time on the show, viewers followed her journey, which included her ups and downs in her marriage to Ryne Holliday (more on that below), as well as her life as a busy mom and businesswoman.
