Three months before her miscarriage, The Blast reported that Garcia had left the "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" after one season. She was a fan favorite cast until her link to a troll account was unveiled in the program's 4th season.

In January, Bravo's executive producers confirmed her exit from the reality TV series, claiming the cast needed to regroup after the tumultuous 4th season saw everyone gunning for Garcia's head.

The drama began when co-star Heather Gay exposed Garcia's ties to the Instagram troll account RealityVonTease, and she was forced to address the issue on the show's reunion episode.

Monica Garcia's Return Depends On Her Castmates

While Garcia didn't believe she did anything wrong, her castmates begged to differ. Gay slammed her as a "cyberbully internet troll," while Lisa Barlow stressed that she "f-cking deceived" them.

Other castmates — Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose, and Angie Katsanevas — echoed similar sentiments, noting they could no longer trust Garcia. This lack of trust is a significant problem if she wishes to return to the reality TV series.

Bravo producers Noah Samton and Lisa Shannon implied that Garcia's return depends on her relationship with the co-stars. They praised her as a valuable addition to the team but noted her relationship with the other cast members was a "really complicated puzzle."
