The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is down two housewives as Carlton Gebbia and Joyce Giraud were fired this week after just one season on Bravo.
What does the former have to say about her dismissal?
E! News’ Giuliana Rancic caught up with Carlton, the franchise’s first Wiccan, at the premiere of Maleficent, and she hinted that she is in fact gone.
Not that she’s looking at this news as devastating.
While she hasn’t “officially been notified yet by Bravo,” Carlton is already plotting her next reality TV move, calling her RHOBH exit “a blessing.”
“I sort of look at it as a blessing in disguise because my husband does have a project in the works, a reality show,” Carlton revealed to Giuliana.
“It’s something that would give me the opportunity to work with him. I was contractually obligated for a three-year deal and if that’s the case, I’m not anymore.”
She is married to David Gebbia, owner of Stockcross Financial Services. Carlton adds, in closing, “I really have enjoyed working for Bravo!”
However, she does also confess that, “I would like to go into a show and not have to watch knives coming at my back. That would just be great!”
Ouch. In related news, we hear Lisa Vanderpump may quit the show too, though Andy Cohen is reportedly battling hard to retain her services.
As it stands right now, Kim and Kyle Richards, Brandi Glanville and Yolanda Foster are the only stars set to return for Season 5 on Bravo next year.
Faye Resnick may join the cast too, we’re told.
VOTE: Will you miss Carlton and Joyce?
