Don’t get us wrong, we love Southern Charm and will keep watching it as long as Bravo keeps airing it, but we miss Landon Clements.

The 37-year-old, who was going through a divorce when she first appeared on the series in Season 2, announced in 2017 that she was leaving the show (and Charleston) after three years as a main cast member. Here’s what we know about Landon’s reality TV exit and what she’s been up to since.

What happened to Landon on Southern Charm?

The beach-loving beauty moved to Malibu after having previously lived in LA with her ex-husband. "I have decided to return to California where I will be pursuing my career in residential real estate,” Landon told Bravo’s The Daily Dish after Southern Charm's fourth season.

"I recently renewed my license and am thrilled to join the team at CLIMB Real Estate. While I won't be returning to Southern Charm, I'm excited for this next chapter in my life."

In an interview with People, Landon added, "It wasn’t really about filming or not filming, it was just what I wanted out of my life. I love real estate and the hospitality… That’s what I sort of wanted to get back into. I know that if I want to get to the next level of things, I really need to get to work…"

The former interior designer also admitted that there’s a limited dating pool for her in Charleston. "I've known most of these guys since I was really young, or I'm related to them," she revealed. "It's a very, very small town and there are great guys there, but I've literally known them since we were kids."

However, Landon expressed that she’s in no rush to walk down the aisle again. "I’m not really looking to get remarried right now," she shared. "I’m focused on my career and want to get the real estate stuff going, and then I’ll try to figure all that out."

The lifestyle influencer was married to British businessman James Maby from 2008 to 2013. "I was living the dream," she said during one of her first appearances on Southern Charm

"We had a house in the [Hollywood] Hills, swimming pool, staff, the cars, the jewels. When I moved out of the house I pretty much just walked away from all of it," she continued. "On the inside I was so alone, so I packed up and left. Sometimes you just have to save yourself."

Landon confessed that she was afraid to tell her family about the split. "No one in my family has been divorced… It was just this, like, Southern pride," she explained. "You made this decision to marry him and now you have to toughen [up] and figure out how to stick with your decision… It was really hard to tell my mom I was getting divorced."

Though her marriage came to an end, the Georgia native remains close to James’ 16-year-old daughter Lola. "You don’t divorce children," Landon said of the teen, whose mom is Clueless actress Stacey Dash. "I was the Girl Scouts leader when she was in kindergarten and, you know, did all of this stuff. I love it."

Southern Charm airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
