It truly is the end of an era.

Yolanda Hadid, the sometimes controversial mother of Gigi, Bella and Anwar Hadid has revealed that she is leaving the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

The 52-year-old chose to make the announcement on social media, citing the reason being that she wants to ‘bring the privacy back’ to her life.

During her stint on the show, the former model’s split from her husband David Foster was well documented, as well as her ongoing battle with lyme disease.

In addition to that, her on-screen battles with the other housewives, specifically Kyle Richards, have become a major talking point. She also clashed with her co-stars including Lisa Rinna and Lisa Vanderpump and was accused of having Munchausen syndrome, a condition where someone pretends to be ill or induces symptoms of illness.
