As OK! reported, the 44-year-old was axed from the hit reality series earlier this week following a series of racist statements that resurfaced on her social media accounts.

Bravo announced Tuesday, January 25, that Nguyen would "no longer be a cast member" on RHOSLC, as the network "has ceased filming" with the newbie housewife following the controversy.

"We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention," Bravo wrote in the official statement. "Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions."

In turn, Nguyen took to social media on Tuesday night to promise her fans she will be addressing the situation on Wednesday, January 26. "I will be finally speaking my truth tomorrow now that I am allowed to," Nguyen wrote on her Instagram Story. "Thank you to who all supports me!" She also posted the same message to her Twitter account.

"At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were," she wrote. "It's why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own." Nguyen added that she's regretful of the posts and apologized for "the pain they caused."

Nguyen's firing came after Bravo's Andy Cohen condemned the former housewife's social media statements, calling them "very upsetting…and disgusting," as OK! learned earlier this week.

"People were very upset about the lack of discussion on last night's episode [of Watch What Happens Live] relating to Jennie’s disgusting and upsetting posts, and I’ve also seen all the tweets wanting to know what’s being done about those posts," Cohen, 53, explained on Monday, January 24.

“I just want to say, in case anyone doesn’t realize it, that there are many serious discussions happening right now about everything — about everything,” he continued. “And I can’t address the situation right now, but it will be addressed very soon, and thank you for your patience.”
