Why did Cameran Eubanks leave the show?

While Eubanks was a part of the show from Season 1 to Season 6, she, along with co-stars Chelsea Meissner and Naomie Olindo, announced that they would not be making a comeback in Season 7. And while Olindo seems to have backtracked, seeing that she is a part of Season 8, it looks like Eubanks has no intention of returning. 

"My mantra with social media if you are on a reality show: You don't like the heat? Get out of the kitchen. Well, get out of the kitchen is exactly what I did after season six," Eubanks said, as reported by E!Online. "At that point, I had a child and since becoming a mother, my priorities had changed. I also felt like I was at a different place in my life. It was time to move on." In addition to motherhood, there were also the "false accusations" and "nasty rumors" that her husband Jason Wimberly was cheating on her.

Eubanks noted that it "started to feel a bit icky", further prompting her to leave. In a now-deleted Instagram post, she explained that she picked her marriage over the show. "While upsetting, it sadly doesn’t surprise me as this is what reality television has come to nowadays and a large reason why I kept my marriage off the air,” she wrote. “You must protect what is sacred to you. Some things aren’t worth a big paycheck,” she added. 

However, she still had positive things to say about her experience. "That said, all in all, Southern Charm was a very positive experience. I would go back and do it all over again," she said. "I'm pretty certain I am done with reality TV, though. I've got two shows under my belt, and at this point, I am enjoying a simpler life without a camera in my face," she added. She echoed this sentiment while talking to Us Weekly when asked about Season 8, stating, “That chapter’s closed.” “I closed that door and there’s really no need for me to go back. I don’t think it would necessarily serve a purpose. But the show’s doing great,” she added.
