Original story (1/23/18 at 16:20 p.m. ET):
Meghan King Edmonds is done.
The reality star is leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County after three seasons.
The mother of one opened up about the difficult decision on her blog and shared the bittersweet announcement.
"Today is a bittersweet day for me,” she wrote on Tuesday, January 23.
“After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County I've decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat.”
Though it was a difficult decision for the Bravolebrity, the show became too much of an emotional toll.
"As you might suspect filming this show takes a massive emotional toll: I'm literally filming my real life in real time and engaged in situations and circumstances which can be contentious," she said.
"Then, when the show airs, we relive some trying of the most trying moments in our lives and then endure the public's reaction; we never come out as winners to every viewer.”
She continued, “But what you might not suspect is the physical toll: filming is grueling!”
Not to mention, the blonde beauty is currently expecting twins after undergoing IVF for a second time.
"After my first season I knew what to expect for round two, but even still, filming during IVF and then the beginning of pregnancy during my second season was difficult,” she shared.
“I was hormonal and tired all the time. But my third season takes the cake: I had a newborn and had to hire a full time live-in nanny (my cousin) so as to allow me the flexibility to meet my obligations of continuous days and long hours of filming, traveling, etc..”
While she loved her time on the RHOC, she knows her heart is no longer in the show.
"As I was filming the season 12 reunion I knew in my heart I was done: this wasn't my place anymore,” she said.
“I was only 5 weeks pregnant when I filmed the reunion and I was already exhausted.”
She continued, “I knew that I was going to have a long pregnancy growing the twins and it would be next to impossible to film. I could do it, but did I really want to?"
