Jennifer Armstrong & Noella Bergener Leaving Show After Only 1 Season

The Real Housewives of Orange County will return for Season 17 without Dr. Jennifer Armstrong and Noella Bergener,

who both joined the show at the start of Season 16.

On Friday, July 8, both ladies confirmed their exits on Instagram.

“I loved opening up about being a working mom on Real Housewives of Orange County.

I am so grateful to have had the privilege to talk about my father,

my kids, and a real modern relationship on national television.

My family and my work are the most important aspects of my life,

so I am stepping away from RHOC and focusing on them ” Jen wrote.

She continued, “Thank you to everyone who has reached out in support — especially from the working moms.
