The chilled-out mom of three left RHOC after just one season, opting to not remain with the cast for season nine.

Lydia told Us of her decision: "It's bittersweet. I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with — it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing."
