Cast shakeups for Bravo’s Housewives franchise are common, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is no different—though Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer are both not returning to RHOBH for the fourth season, Bravo has had trouble finding replacements for the ladies.

Still, it seems that the Bravo executives aren’t afraid to let cast members go—and this season Marisa Zanuck is getting the boot.

Zanuck dropped hints that she would not be returning last month in a blog post and has since confirmed the news to Celebuzz.

“I wasn’t asked back,” she said. “It’s as simple as that, and I’m okay with it.”

Taylor Armstrong has already been downgraded to a “friend” of the cast for season four, and Zanuck’s departure also may not come as much of a surprise. Still, it is uncertain who else may be stepping in to fill the gaps—Lisa Rinna is a rumored star, though LeAnn Rimes’ name has also been thrown about (even though she and nemesis Brandi Glanville both swear it will not happen).

At least Zanuck is happy with the network’s decision.

Housewives was a once in a lifetime experience, and I am grateful that Bravo gave me the opportunity to step into their crazy world,” the now-former Housewife said. “I have no regrets and nothing but love for the amazing viewers that were so kind to take time out of their day and reach out to me on Twitter and comment on my blogs. We will definitely keep in touch.”

Unlike other stars who were fired, Zanuck is taking the high road and admitting to being let go. Sheree Whitfield and Danielle Staub swore they had quit despite reports that they were cut.

“Let’s be honest, nobody is going to quit the show unless they have a spinoff because they either need the money or have a business to promote,” Zanuck said. “If a housewife doesn’t fall into those two categories, then perhaps she was attracted to the show by the lure of fame and in that case won’t be giving it up anytime soon.”

“Reality television is not for everyone and requires a thick skin, you go from obscurity to opening yourself up to millions of people and have to face the scrutiny and criticism,” she added. “I have learned that it is pointless to judge others for the decisions they make because it has nothing to do with me.”

As for RHOBH, Zanuck maintains that it was simply “a moment in time that has passed,” though she is not completely finished with television just yet—Zanuck will appear on the next season of Million Dollar Listing L.A., another series on the Bravo network.

“I’m not the kind of person that is desperate to be on television, and the truth is, that HousewivesSelling L.A. and Million Dollar Listing L.A. found me,” she explained.
