Just days after Lisa confirmed she would not be a part of the upcoming 13th season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Diana took to her Instagram page with a slideshow of family photos to confirm to her online audience that she also would not be returning to the Bravo reality series.
“Hi everybody…” Diana, 49, began on January 9 with images of herself, fiancé Asher Monroe, and their two-year-old daughter, Eliyanah Monroe, in bed.
“As so many of you know, Asher and I are expecting our second child later this year. You also know that due to many factors, this pregnancy is considered high risk and I am on doctor-advised bed rest. To that end, I am not able to devote myself fully to filming the next season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” she announced. “I would like to thank Bravo and Evolution for allowing me to focus on my pregnancy, and for their support and understanding.”
“I promise to continue sharing my fertility journey with you,” Diana added.
Diana joined the RHOBH cast in late 2021 for the series’ 12th season and was featured in a full-time role throughout the episodes. However, her time on the show wasn’t without controversy. In fact, at one point, she was accused of being behind a series of racist bot attacks aimed at castmate Garcelle Beauvais‘ 14-year-old son, Jax Nilon, which she denied.
Also during her time on the show, Diana caught the attention of many when she pledged to donate $100,000 to victims harmed by Erika’s estranged husband, Thomas Girardi, and his fraudulent behavior, much of which Erika has been accused of being part of.
Prior to Diana’s exit news, she appeared on Instagram Live with Lisa and Erika Jayne, declaring that Lisa “better” be asked back to the show as she and her then-co-stars proclaimed that they are “real friends.”
“Happy New Year from us and yes, we are real friends … We are. Love you girls,” Erika said.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 13 is expected to go into production later this month but a cast lineup has not yet been announced.
