When the show returns to New York City next year, Brie won’t be joining the other women.
“She wasn’t asked back for season 2,” a production source revealed. The reason? “Her storyline was just too boring.”
She told Essence back in March, “People are always like where is she?” She explained that she never had a lot of screentime because “This girl sits in an office and has a job. I actually have stuff to do, investors to meet with, my job isn’t a social job.”
Earlier this month, Brie told OK! Magazine she is pregnant with her first child.
She told the magazine, “My entire pregnancy has been an enjoyable and easy one. I’ve had absolutely no morning sickness or discomfort. It’s been a true joy and a breeze!” She added, “My family and my boyfriend’s family were of course the first to know, and then our nearest and dearest friends. Once we were out of the first trimester we became much more comfortable telling everyone. It’s our favorite news to share.”
She also reveals of whether she’s having a baby boy or girl, “Only my mom was told the gender of our baby because I’d asked my doctor to let her, and only her, know. About a week later my boyfriend and I hosted a gender reveal party at our apartment. My mom had a box filled with balloons, which were to be either pink or blue, so when my boyfriend and I opened it, we’d find out whether we were having a boy or a girl. We learned our baby’s gender at the same moment as all of our guests. It was so much fun and the anticipation was incredible. I screamed with joy and absolute excitement when we saw pink balloons fly out. We’re having A BABY GIRL!!!!!!!”
She continued, “We have a growing list of name suggestions from people, but I think we’re pretty set on one particular name that we both recently fell in love with. We’ve agreed to keep it a secret until our daughter is born. But we’re still open to name suggestions, just in case there’s one out there that we haven’t considered and might like more.”
Asked about taking time off the show, she added at the time, “Neither he nor my pregnancy will be a part of Blood, Sweat & Heels. I’ll eventually introduce him and my daughter, but it won’t be on the show.”
