“I’m not returning but excited to see next [season],” Dayna replied.

Dayna also revealed that her podcast, Unf*ckwithable, which aired its latest episode in February, would be “back soon.”

Dayna was brought to the Pump Rules cast in 2019 ahead of the series’ eighth season and proceeded to embark on short-lived romances with Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni, both of whom were fired from the show in June 2020 due to past racist remarks.

After previously appearing on the show’s seventh season in a guest role, Dayna admitted on Katie Maloney‘s podcast, You’re Gonna Love Me, that she was fired from her corporate job due to her drunken antics with the guys of the show, including Peter Madrigal, Jax Taylor, Tom Schwartz, and Tom Sandoval,

“I actually woke up the next day with the worst anxiety of my life because I had a corporate job and was f**king hammered,” she admitted. “I [was] in full-blown anxiety thinking someone from my work is going to see it and I’m going to get fired, which, spoiler alert, ended up happening.”

No word yet on whether or not Dayna was fired or quit Vanderpump Rules.
