"I’m at a good place where this could be my last season on the show. I’m happy, I’m married, I don’t have a lot of drama going on. I would be happy to share my married life with my fans and continue to build and repair relationships with my friends on the show," she told OK! at the time. "However, I’m kind of good.”
