"I didn't want to expose my personal life so much anymore," she told E!. "I had done that and was over that. I care very much for my family and children and that show tends to take me away from them."
Some speculate that the decision to leave the show was not Grammer's, and that producers kicked her to the curb in favor of another housewife.
"I can't say too much at this moment," the former dancer and Playboy model told Us Weekly, "but we couldn't get it worked out."
She said she loved her co-stars, and added that while she's had fun with the franchise, she and the producers just couldn't reach an agreement.
Will you be missing Grammer next season?
