"After a lot of careful thought, I've decided because of my crazy schedules at The Young and The Restless, as well as Days of Our Lives, it's best for me and my family if I step away from being a Housewife for now," she said in a statement. (She mirrored the sentiment on Instagram on Friday (below).) "But you never know, I might be popping in from time to time just to see what the ladies are up to! Thanks for your love and support guys!!!"
