While some thought Carnie Wilson, Marie Osmond, Jodie Sweetin, or Valerie Bertinelli, would fit in perfectly.

Gilbert explained that her reasons for leaving the show were because she had too much on her plate. The star also acts and executive produces “The Conners,” which is set to launch season 2, and has three children to take care of.
