During the April 9 episode of the daytime talk show, Gilbert announced that she made the difficult decision to exit the series.
“This is something that I have been struggling with for a while, and going back and forth, but I’ve decided that it’s time for me to leave the show at the end of this season,” she began her statement. “I obviously love it here, and like I said, this was extremely difficult."
