Lauren Pope quit TOWIE on advice of psychic
Lauren Pope quit 'The Only Way is Essex' on the advice of a psychic.
The 33-year-old former model announced in October she was leaving the reality show - which she had been with since it began in 2010 - and admitted she found the constant conflict with female co-stars including Maria Fowler, Gemma Collins and Chloe Sims "too much".
She said: "The last series of 'TOWIE' was girls against girls - it was too much. I saw a psychic who told me to leave and now I'm very calm and relaxed."
Lauren also mocked Gemma's plans to break America after befriending Jonathan Cheban on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
She said: "I don't know if Gemma would say 'hi' if I saw her. Will she make it in the US and meet the Kardashians?
"I don't know if that will happen. Jonathan has probably forgotten 'Celebrity Big Brother' exists now he's back in LA. To break America you need a talent."
And the DJ doesn't think many of her former co-stars have much chance of TV success without the show.
She told Closer magazine: "The 'TOWIE' cast members are just normal people with normal jobs. Everyone works well together as a group - even Am Childs' reality show didn't work."
