The cast shakeup comes after Dubrow announced her departure from the show.

She continued, "My oldest kids are now teenagers, and I just felt like they need to make their own decision about being on television and exposing their lives, and for me personally, I have some really cool, interesting opportunities that I want to explore. I don't know where they're going to go, but I want the opportunity to explore them."

She added that she will "miss the girls."

The departure is good news for her enemy Dodd, as they went at it during the season 11 reunion special.
