Crystal Minkoff‘s departure from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reminded Us that celebrities are Bravo fans too as Octavia Spencer, Paula Abdul and more reacted to the casting news.

“You’ll be missed!” Spencer wrote as Abdul called Crystal “so beautiful” amid the shakeup. Crystal took to Instagram on Monday, April 15, to announce that she will not be returning to reality TV after three seasons.

“I just wanted to share the news that I will not be coming back to film season 14 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It’s very bittersweet,” she said in the video post. “Never did I think I would have been asked to do the show in a million years, let alone film it for three seasons. Every single year I was asked back, it was a blessing. It was an honor.”

Crystal admitted that being the first Asian American on RHOBH came with “a lot of weight” on her shoulders.

“I have since just have really understood the magnitude of what that meant for people,” she noted. “I just wanted to thank you guys for being such an incredible support for me, and I hope that I have been for you, sharing my story with my ED [eating disorder], sharing stories about my father and his Alzheimer’s. I’ve heard so many incredible stories from you guys.”

In her social media upload, Crystal clarified that she was not saying “goodbye” but rather “see you soon.”

“I have some other things going on that I will be sharing with you soon that I’ll still be able to connect with you because at the end of the day, that is been my biggest gift of filming. This show is connecting with so many of you with your beautiful stories,” she continued. “So, more to come but I just, I’m so grateful for everyone’s love and support. You guys are an incredible audience with your own unique story to tell and I hope that you guys all one day have your opportunity.”

It didn’t take long for fans and stars alike to flood Crystal’s comments section with reactions.

Garcelle Beauvais, who starred alongside Crystal on RHOBH, wrote how she would miss spending time together while filming the show. Crystal’s husband, Rob Minkoff, meanwhile, joked that he was planning to “bring it” on the next season.
