Yolanda Hadid Announces She's Leaving 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

Yolanda Hadid announced she was leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Wednesday, but now new details are coming out about her split from the hit series.

A source on the show's production tells ET that the decision to go separate ways wasn't mutual -- in fact, Hadid left RHOBH after being demoted by the show's producers.

According to the source, Hadid exited the series because RHOBH producers demoted her from a main housewife to a friend of the show for the upcoming season. The star then told production she would only stay if she could continue as a main housewife, to which production declined. However, the source asserts there is no bad blood between Hadid, Bravo, and the series' production team.

This new information brings clarity to Hadid's announcement that she was leaving the series, which she posted to her Instagram on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old reality star wrote that while she had hoped for a better ending than season six of Housewives, "Sometimes we don't get to control the ending of the chapters in our life."

As viewers will remember, last season of RHOBH focused on Hadid's Lyme disease diagnosis, which was questioned by her fellow housewives in several drama-filled moments.

"I believe that every exit is an new entry and with that in mind I say goodbye to my @Bravotv Family as I continue to focus on a my recovery, my children and bring back the privacy within our Home," the star wrote. "I am excited about this CHOICE and look forward to the next chapter of my life."
