She'd be sleeping with one eye open after trashing everyone in the group.

She's definitely burned any bridges within H!P and UFP. I don't imagine her contract will be renewed once it expires.

Up Front is doing what Up Front does: letting her save a bit of face on the way out the door and not torching all of her future employment opportunities by publicly firing her. I don't believe for a minute that Risa made the decision to leave, though.

Maybe it's because I've had too much to drink over the holidays but I've thought a lot about Tsubaki's relationships. You can actually see certain groups.
- Kiki and Saori are good friends and Kisora seems to get along well too (though Kisora might be more neutral here). Kisora is also close with Mizuho as well as with Ami (who is also friends with Saori).
- Risa is friends with Mao and Yumeno - I thought Yumeno wrote very endearing and friendly blog posts regarding Risa's suspension and graduation, despite her shittalking her. It was also interesting that Risa found no bad words against Mao despite her having been center a few times, compared to the recent push of Mizuho and Ami (at least in visuals).
Riko is pretty neutral here. In general I think Risa didn't go against Kisora because she is absolutely, in no way ever, a threat to her. Her talking about Yumeno being too rude to managers, or too much of a large ham in general, might have been a temporal thing - or maybe that's what actually got her into trouble (i.e. the part about being the reasonable one and still having to suffer for others' mistakes). That's why Yumeno went soft on her, because she understood that it was her mistake.
My hot take (continued) is that Kiki is not super popular among H!P members, while Risa is actually well liked. There are Yumeno and Mao as mentioned, but also Akane, Rei and Hirose.
I could totally see Kiki as the big diva. Risa is not sweet or anything either, more like she has a rbf and an insecure personality. The fact that they basically put Tsubaki on hiatus just because of Kiki's hernia - while MM just continued without Masaki - probably pissed her off and I'm sure that many people in H!P wondered what was going on. And Saori's boy stories probably lead to many, many talks with management - and Risa, as subleader, had to take it.
Don't get me wrong, it's still dumb. Once your dirty laundry becomes public like that it's over.
The REALLY spicy part is: Who were her followers? Just non-idol friends? I'm sure there are idols among them... probably even H!P or Up Front idols.
...which also leads to Up Front officially announcing investigating the case. I bet they will force every private idol account to be shut down*. I do wonder though what would happen if the leaker him-/herself was an H!P idol?
*nobody talked about this but like a day after the first Risa leaks someone leaked Morito Chisaki's private account. She didn't post anything interesting though.
