"I will not be back for another season. The producers offered me more shows, but with my family I decided it was time to move on to other projects," writes Amy on the new Where Are They Now section of NFNS's site.
"The lifestyle and obligations of a television personality – including cultivating the thick skin it takes to survive the harsh criticism and vicious personal attacks mounted by bloggers – just aren’t compatible with my goals or my family at this time."
Vicious personal attacks mounted by bloggers?!?! Surely she couldn't be referring to this post or this picture. I actually thought Amy's show ended up being pretty good, but it looks like her heart wasn't in it from the beginning:
"It’s hard to hold two conflicting emotions simultaneously: Happy for myself – though also terrified – and guilty because I felt I didn’t deserve to win. It was a very bittersweet victory. By the time I was announced the winner, family issues had also helped me determine that working in television was not going to be in my future."
Ummm... so you already asked to go home once, but stayed on. Then JAG dropped out and you were brought back. You still wanted to go home, but were then announced the winner. Crazy!
Too bad. I wish Amy, who's currently living in a small village in France, the best in all her future projects. Sorry it didn't work out!
