In a Facebook post Wednesday, the daughter of beauty icon Vidal Sassoon said she wants to "feel alive" and be "the real me."
"I want to BE the one to share with everyone this news. I WILL NOT BE RETURNING TO #RHOBH NEXT SEASON," she wrote. "In receiving this #news I feel free & ALIVE to BE the REAL ME that was not shown to the #bravo world of viewers. I truly am #grateful for the experience & huge life lessons I was up against."
Sassoon entered Season 7 of "RHOBH" as the other blonde newbie along with Dorit Kemsley, but quickly made foes in Kim and Kyle Richards as well Lisa Rinna.
During an exclusive interview with TooFab, Sassoon said there was an immense out pouring of support from friends and fans after watching her on the show.
"Every single day I have minimum of 20 people reach out to me. Minimum. And whether it's online or I give them my number or email back and forth, people go through some serious, serious things in life," she said. "Every single day, I'm reminded that what I'm doing and what I'm talking about relates to people suffering in this world. If that's why I'm here, that's why I'm here and I'm okay with that, completely okay with that."
Since announcing that she has no plans to return, Sassoon has been active on Twitter thanking fans for being so supportive of her new move and sending out tweets of appreciation for those who understand why she wants to move on from being a reality show star.
