According to multiple sources, Edmonds is leaving the Bravo reality series before the show's upcoming twelfth edition, Us Weekly reported.

The 32-year-old Missouri native joined The Real Housewives franchise as a full-time cast member in Season 10. She resumed her role on Season 11, which just wrapped in November 2016.

Edmonds starred on the last season of the show with Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, Heather Dubrow and Kelly Dodd.

Before news of Edmonds' departure began circulating, sources claimed Judge will be coming back for Season 12.

Judge's return is reportedly in spite of Gunvalson and Dodd's objections and attempts to kick her off the show due to past unresolved conflicts.

Edmonds may be taking a break because she just welcomed her first child, daughter Aspen, with husband Jim Edmonds in November of last year. A storyline on the last Housewives' season had to do with Edmonds undergoing in vitro fertilization to hopefully get pregnant.

Shortly after giving birth, Edmonds took to Instagram to gush about her husband.

"From the hours leading up to the birth I had the most incredible husband, he didn't leave my side," she wrote at the time.

"I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn't do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours."

Bravo declined comment on the report and confirmed to Us that casting has yet to be officially determined.
