Briana Renee is done with reality TV.
At least for now.
According to Radar Online, the Little Women: LA cast member will not return for season seven of this Lifetime series, turning down a contract offer that had reportedly been placed on her table.
In an unusual turn of events – for someone who has aired her dirty laundry in front of a camera for years – insiders say Renee is leaving the series because she yearns for a bit of privacy.
Specifically, she doesn’t want her ongoing divorce drama to play out for an audience.
And what a drama it is!
Back in November, Renee and Matt Grundhoffer announced they had split, not long after the latter admitted to having cheated on his wife.
At the time, this split seemed amicable.
Just consider Brianna’s quote at the time:
“We rode til the wheels fell off, and now we can redirect our course as friends focusing on being the best parents.”
The former couple is parents to an 18-month old son, while each also has children from previous relationships.
Fast forward to early January, however, and the concept of amicable was thrown out the window.
Like, WAY out the window.
In her divorce documents, Renee asks Grundhoffer for child and spousal support, which is reasonable and normal.
But TMZ also confirmed at the time that Renee filed for a restraining order in December because she alleges her husband verbally abused her at least twice in November, referring to her a “cunt” and a “worthless bitch.”
These same documents state that Grundhoffer threatened to take the couple’s son, Maverick, away from his mother.
Wait, however, there’s more…
Briana accuses Matt of often being drunk, mean and violent.
She relays a story in her filing from April of 2017, during which Grundhoffer supposedly threatened to “kill everyone in the house” and also talked openly about killing himself.
And Renee also says she found extremely disturbing exchanges between Grundhoffer and another woman, presumably his mistress.
These exchanges were “sexually explicit and disturbing,” Briana writes, and allegedly “involved bestiality and proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of sex acts with Matthew’s minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship.”
None of that is even worth joking about.
Shortly after Renee confirmed she was breaking up with Grundhoffer, a transgender model came out and referred to the twosome’s relationship as the “most dysfunctional ever.”
So it definitely seems like it’s for the best they are going their separate ways.
As for the future of Little Women: LA?
Radar reports that producers are not looking to replace Renee and that been in production on season seven has actually been going on for months without her.
Let’s hope, for the sake of her children, that everything works out as well as can be between Renee and Grundhoffer.
