But now, PEOPLE has learned, the Bravo reality star is likely leaving the show after the end of season 2 and is not expected to participate in a third season.
In a statement posted on her Twitter page, Staub, 48, acknowledges rumors of her departure, but declines to offer any details about her plans – including rumors she'll star in a solo spin-off show.
"I'm not even thinking about season 3 right now," Staub says. "I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me. Right now I just want to let fans know that we have a fantastic finale coming up next week and explosive reunion shows."
A rep for Bravo says, "We haven't announced anything regarding a 3rd season." – Charlotte Triggs
