When asked if she knew the reason why the three ladies did not return for Season 4, Gina responded: "Why? I suppose for various reasons."

"Chyka left. She had a lot of work to do. She'd sort of just done enough. She's a guest (however on the upcoming season). She does come in as a friend on the show," said Gina.

"Pettifleur I think...she said she resigned. I'm not exactly sure the logistics of it all are." As for Susie, Gina added: "And Susie I think was the same thing. But I'm not sure the reasons why."

Gina stated that in order for the show to be captivating, new cast members are essential. "We need to change it up. You need to bring new girls in it for it to stay entertaining."

"To all my friends on social media,I wanted to thank you for the wonderful posts and connections shared over my four year journey as a Real Housewife of Melbourne, I've had so much fun!! Reality TV is a ride and I have enjoyed it thoroughly, but that ride for me is now over," wrote Chyka. She continued: "I have decided to close this door in order to make way for some exciting new opportunities within the lifestyle arena, for the “Chyka Home and Life” media brand."

"Please know I have had a ball - laughed, cried, dressed up, been places and done some things I never expected. No regrets, only brilliant memories. I have loved your constant online friendship and support, I can only hope we stay connected." She added: "My friendships made during the show won't change either , and I'll look on with such pride as the girls film many more seasons full of drama, frocks and shocks!! For me, I'll just have a little more time for my family, businesses and will be able to focus on moving forward with "Chyka Home and Life" Love Chyka xx"

Meanwhile, Berenger confirmed earlier this year that she had contacted the show’s producers informing them she was officially walking away from RHOMelbourne. “I think it is important to leave something on a high,” she told The Herald Sun back in May 2017. “I have loved the opportunity Housewives has given me and enjoyed every moment of it. But I don’t think it is for me anymore.”

“I am looking forward to the next project and looking forward to spending more time on my property developments and with my family.”
