Landon Clements leaving 'Southern Charm' after three seasons
UPI News Service, 09/20/2017
Landon Clements is leaving "Southern Charm" after three seasons on the Bravo reality series.
The 35-year-old television personality announced the news in an Instagram comment Monday after a fan criticized her "lack of girl code" in regard to Austen Kroll and for "flaunting her status," which co-star Shep Rose previously accused her of.
"Girl code? Thats so silly I've never been anything but friends with all of those boys and actually that really hurt my feelings that Chelsea [Meissner] said that," Clements wrote.
"As for Shep we fight like brother and sister. I won't be returning this season and heading back to California to pursue my career in real estate," she said.
"Southern Charm" follows the lives of several professionals living in Charleston, S.C. Clements was introduced as a college friend of Rose's in Season 2, and returned to star in Seasons 3 and 4.
Clements previously appeared on "The Hills" while working as Brent Bolthouse's assistant, but told Page Six in April 2016 that she turned down a larger role on the MTV series.
"I wasn't on the show that much because, at the time, I really wanted to build my career," the star explained. "I was in my twenties and I wasn't ready for it."
"With 'The Hills,' I didn't feel that comfortable developing my story," she added. "They wanted me to go after so-and-so's boyfriend and all this. That's not me."
