Taylor was a primary cast member from seasons 1 to 3 but became a part of the guest cast in the following three installments due to personal issues and the fact that she had moved out of Beverly Hills and now resided in Orange County, California. Indeed, her appearance in ‘RHOC’ marks the first time any Housewife has switched franchises as Taylor did. However, the reason behind the move seems to be a mixture of personal and professional concerns.
