Yolanda Hadid Quit ‘RHOBH’ Due to Demotion By Producers — Report


Could this be the actual reason Yolanda Hadid quit The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills?

Apparently after hearing the plan, the mother of two told producers she’d only stay if she could continue as a main star and they declined her request, leading to her departure.

In the end, the source insists that there’s no Taylor Swift-esque bad blood between the former model, the network, or the production team.

Last year was a rough one for the Dutch beauty, as her Lyme disease — as well as the diagnoses of two of her three children — was called into question by her castmates and her divorce from David Foster was made extremely public.

“I am leaving what’s over without denying its past importance on my life,” the reality star wrote in her goodbye post. “Thank you to all the fans for your love and unwavering support these past 4 years.”

Season 7 of RHOBH is set to begin filming at the end of June.
