The star also opened up about her decision to return to the show, and it sounds like she gave it a lot of thought after leaving at the beginning of 2019. She explained: "First of all, when they called me to ask me back on the show, I wasn't expecting it at all. Took me a few days, maybe a few weeks to think about it and give them my decision.
