Crystal Kung Minkoff Exits ‘The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ After 3 Seasons

Crystal Kung Minkoff is leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills after three seasons on the Bravo reality series.

“I just wanted to share the news that I will not be coming back to film Season 14 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” Minkoff said in an Instagram video. “It’s very bittersweet. Never did I think I would’ve been asked to do this show in a million years — let alone film it for three seasons.”

She continued, “Every single year I was asked back, it was a blessing. It was an honor. Being the first Asian American on Beverly Hills was a lot of weight on my shoulders that I have since just have really understood the magnitude of what that means for people.”

Minkoff joined RHOBH in Season 11 of the Bravo franchise and quickly became involved in a feud with Sutton Stracke. One of the memorable lines of the reality series was when Stracke called out Minkoff’s “ugly leather pants” after claims of being jealous of her.

When Minkoff joined RHOBH, she became the first Asian-American housewife on the show. Throughout her tenure on the reality series, she talked about the struggles of having an eating disorder and how it affected her self-image.

As RHOBH heads into Season 14, Bravo has not announced which housewives will return. So far, the only housewife who confirmed she was not asked back was Annemarie Wiley, who was only there for one season.

The cast of the most recent season also includes Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Garcelle Beauvais and Stracke.

Kathy Hilton has been rumored to be making a comeback and taking on a “friend of” role for Season 14. She last appeared in the Season 13 reunion to support her sister, Richards.

Bette Midler recently took to social media to express her interest in joining the Beverly Hills-set show as she was “in the mood to talk some sh**.” Former housewife Denise Richards, who guest-starred in Season 13, left the door open to return to RHOBH if asked back.
