    Lisa Vanderpump stepped down from 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' because she fears her depression may take its "toll" on her

    The 58-year-old reality star has quit the show after nine seasons and admitted that she did it for the sake of her mental health after grieving for her brother, Mark Vanderpump, who died of an accidental suicide last year


    In an interview with the Daily Express newspaper, Lisa said: "I've never self-harmed, but I have had depressing moments. I started on antidepressants after my brother passed, and grief counselling. After such a depressing year, I worry about the toll it might take. That's one of the reasons I wanted to step away from 'Housewives'."

    The actress hopes speaking out will help others going through the same thing.

    She said: "It's important to talk about depression, and for people to seek help, realising there's no shame to it. Life is difficult to navigate.

    "Just because you're living in a great house, or driving a fabulous car, or have an amazing piece of jewellery, doesn't mean you'll be happy.

    "For the most part I've had a happy life, but suicide is not the answer. It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem."

    Lisa says she is a very emotional and sensitive person and cries at most things.

    She added: "I cry about so many things. The world's a sad place. "The slaughter and torture at this month's dog-meat festival in China; people struggling with depression; a young transgender boy struggling for acceptance."

    Lisa also felt like the show created a "negative" energy for her as she felt attacked by the other women on the programme.

    Announcing her departure from the show - which she appeared on from the start in 2010 - earlier this month, the 'Vanderpump Rules' star said: "The last year was a very negative year for me.

    "I feel like we're moving forward. They have had their resolution. I just had a horrible time with the show and the women. It was a very sad time in my life and it wasn't made any better. I just decided to walk away."

    Jessie J will consider adopting or having a child via a surrogate if she can't conceive naturally.

    The 'Price Tag' hitmaker - who is in a relationship with 'Magic Mike' actor Channing Tatum - has opened up about her "battle" to start a family, and how she hasn't given up hope of having a baby of her own one day despite being told by doctors four years ago that she couldn't give birth naturally.

    Asked in an interview with The Times newspaper if she will consider other options, Jessie said: "Oh yeah, I might go down the route of adoption or even surrogacy. I pray I have children the natural way, but if not, I'll deal with it."

    The 31-year-old pop star was offered her a hysterectomy but she has instead decided to opt for a healthy lifestyle and is vegan.

    She admitted: "Basically, I am still hoping. Some days it seems possible I might have children and others not.

    "I have to accept that becoming a mother is going to be a battle."

    'The Voice Kids UK' coach previously opened up about her infertility issues on stage at London's Royal Albert Hall last November.

    Before performing her track 'Four Letter Word', Jessie told the crowd: "So four years ago, I was told that I couldn't have children, and it's OK, I'm going to have children, trust me. When the doctor told me, my reaction was, 'Oh hell no!'

    "And I don't tell you guys for sympathy, I'm one of millions of women, and of men, that have gone through this and will go through this, and it can't become something that defines us. But, I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and of sadness. But, also to give myself joy and give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard."
