"Our producer, Scott Dunlop, said, ‘Unless they kick you off the horse, don’t voluntarily get off the horse.’ So, I’m still on the horse! I’m still riding the pony," she explained.

She continued, "I don’t know what my future is, but I’m having fun and they’re my friends. I have much love for my franchise — a love for what I’ve created and a lot of love for my cast, we’ve been through hell and back. But truthfully, it’s our reality. It’s what my life has gone through for the last 14 years. And it’s been some bumpiness.”
