One more orange down! After appearing on Real Housewives of Orange County, Peggy Sulahian is now leaving the RHOC platform, Peggy Sulahian exclusively confirmed to media.
Explaining her exit plan from RHOC, the 44-year-old reality star said in a statement to US Weekly on Tuesday, February 13,
What an exciting experience it was to be part of The Real Housewives of Orange County! It was an honor to be the 100th housewife and to be part of the Bravo family. I am extremely proud of being the first Armenian-American Housewife and sharing my culture with the world,
She further added,
While I faced and conquered many challenges, I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my story and spread awareness of breast cancer. Dealing with the disease and the passing of my father challenged me to reassess and reflect on my life, and I’ve realized what’s most important is leading a healthy and happy life, surrounded by people who care and love you. At this point, moving on seemed like the right thing to do. A few new ventures have availed themselves, and I look forward to sharing them with you soon!
RHOC: Peggy Sulahian Reveals She Is Leaving the ‘Real Housewives of Orange County’
Peggy became Bravo’s 100th housewife after joining the cast of season 12 RHOC. This departure news comes just days after Lydia McLaughlin, who rejoined the RHOC last year after a one season stint in 2013, confirmed that she was also exiting.
Lydia explained through her blog on Friday, February 9,
RHOC has given me a great platform and I’m grateful for that. However, I feel like I can only handle this show one season at a time. I need a break! There is a lot of good that comes from the show, but also a lot of negativity. After a family vote, it was unanimous that I should take a break. Sometimes the people who love us the most see things even we don’t see. I trust my path and I’m excited for what the future holds.
Additionally, Meghan King Edmonds also previously announced that she was leaving the Bravo's hit series after three seasons in January.
She wrote on via her blog at the time,
After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County I’ve decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat. I will miss the rush of the first all-cast event of the season, the anticipation of receiving each week’s episode, the thrill of wrapping the reunion.
