layla kayleighOn Monday it was rumored that Layla Kaleigh may not be with World Poker Tour for a new season. This rumor was confirmed by the WPT in a press release and by Layla on her Myspace blog. The feisty Britt claims that she was asked back to do another season but opted out for personal reasons.

More from Kayleigh:

“Also you should know that as much fun as I had on season 6 of the World Poker Tour, I will not be returning for a 2nd season.

WPT were kind enough to ask me back for a 2nd season, however after much thought and deliberation I decided that I really want to minimize traveling in my schedule this year, focus more on my health and personal relationships, and they were very understanding to where I was coming from.

Might I add, that I had the most adventurous time on the road, learned so much about life and poker! and most importantly gained the most amazing friendship with my dear friend Kim Lansing (who I really hope lands the hosting position for Season 7)”

Well just like everyone else we’re also cheering for Kimberly Lansing who is a huge fan favorite on BIP. Currently, Lansing handles all the WPT online interviews and update reports.

As for Layla Kayleigh she joins the list of Sabina Gadecki, Courtney Friel, and Shanna Hiatt as previous World Poker Tour chicks.
