A day after RHOC star Meghan King Edmonds revealed that she’s expecting twin boys, news of a very different kind is coming out of the reality TV franchise. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Siggy Flicker has announced that she’s leaving the show after two seasons.
Flicker’s short time on the series has been filled with drama, most recently when she and Margaret Josephs clashed in Milan over a comment Josephs made about Adolf Hitler. Flicker, whose father is a Holocaust survivor, accused Josephs of being anti-Semitic. And that was just one of many disputes, some of which Flicker detailed in an Instagram post.
Despite that, Flicker doesn’t seem to have any regrets about her choice to appear on the reality series, or about her decision to leave.
She told The Daily Dish, “After much reflection and [with] Bravo’s support, I have decided that this will be my last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I am grateful to the network for allowing me to be part of this successful franchise and wish only the best for Teresa [Giudice], Melissa [Gorga], Dolores [Catania], Danielle [Staub], and Margaret [Josephs]. At this time, I want to focus on my beautiful family, my growing business, and some exciting new projects.”
In a separate interview with Us Weekly, she said, “Looking back at the show, I truly wanted to make a difference for Jersey and in Jersey and I realized that I had too many obstacles working against me and I couldn’t do it. I feel like I lost the battle but I won the war, because at the end of the day, everyone’s goal should be … to be happy. And there is nothing more that I love than myself, my husband, and my family too much for them to be unhappy and for me to be unhappy.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey airs on Bravo Wednesdays at 9pm ET.
