'Party Down South' cast member Taylor "Lil Bit" Wright reportedly quits show for good

Party Down South is reportedly losing a significant cast member.
Taylor "Lil Bit" Wright, a 23-year-old from Rockingham, NC, has quit the show after two seasons of filming, TMZ reported.
Wright chose to leave the CMT reality series, which closely resembles the former MTV hit Jersey Shore and is produced by the same production company, due to situations that oppose her strong religious beliefs. She allegedly began fearing for her safety considering all the drama that goes down.
The rest of Party Down South's cast has already inked contracts to return for the show's third season and, according to TMZ, producers are frantically looking to fill the big gap following Wright's departure.
Producers are reportedly "furious" about having to replace Wright, whom they compared to Jersey Shore'sNicole "Snooki" Polizzi. Polizzi was hugely popular amongst fans and stood out as one of the top personalities in the house.
Although Party Down South producers are hoping an increase in salary might keep Wright around, she allegedly keeps insisting she wouldn't even return to the series for a million dollars.
Party Down South, which premiered in January, features eight adults living together under one roof for the summer. The show is currently airing its second season.
