On Thursday, the actress said that her reason for exiting the ABC show was to pursue her acting career. "It wasn't an easy decision, but before I started The View,
I already had my commitments to Fuller House
and my work with the Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies," she explained. "Because of the success of those shows, my commitments have become even greater with those shows, and the commute going West Coast to East Coast has been tough on me and my family. I want to make sure I spend as much time with my children and invest in all the projects that I do to the fullest extent."
