The reality star compared Bravo to the Mafia

Brandi Glanville has cemented a reputation on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for creating drama, but she says there are no hard feelings when it comes to her exit from the series.

Glanville, 42, broke her silence Wednesday on her podcast, Brandi Glanville: Unfiltered.

“After a lot of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided not to return to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” she said. “They’ve been awesome, and Bravo will always be my family. Like Andy [Cohen] said, it’s the Mafia. You never really get to leave us. And they’ve been so great to me, and if I’m available and they need me, they know where to find me.”

PEOPLE confirmed June 18 that the former model won’t appear on the reality show next season along with Kim Richards. Yolanda Foster also won’t be back full time.

“Brandi got too big for her britches. She was a diva, and it came around to bite her,” a source told PEOPLE last week. “By the end, she couldn’t get along with anyone, and no one wanted to shoot with her.”

Glanville, who has appeared on RHOBH for four years, added that she has some new, “exciting” projects in the works.

“So,” she finished, “See you when I see you, peeps.”
