According to Lydia, it wasn't a crazy, make-it or break-it moment.

She says the the news source, "I never wanted to make a career out of being a housewife. That's never really been a dream of mine."

While she was completely honest with the shows involvement in her future career goals, she did voice that skipping out on season nine would be tough.

"I compare it to breaking up with a boyfriend you know you're not going to end up with—it's hard, but overall you know you're doing the right thing," said Lydia to Us Weekly.

What do the other ladies think about this?
