Supernanny Jo Frost quitting after this season

The seventh season of ABC’s Supernanny debuts tonight at 8 p.m. ET with an episode about out-of-control teenagers, and marks the beginning of the show’s last season, as its star wants to move on to other things. Jo Frost said she’s leaving to focus on having a family of her own.

“I have decided to hang up my cape. It was a very conscious decision, through much reflection. But I need to create more balance in my life. … Proper balance will allow me to date and have a relationship and look at my own future of having a family,” she told the New York Post. “I am definitely excited about dating and being in a committed relationship. That is all exciting stuff for me around the corner.”

Having written several books and created an international franchise, Jo said she won’t disappear, and could bring her UK series Extreme Parental Guidance to the US. “I will certainly not be giving up what my public service is to America and the world. … I don’t think you will be seeing less of me. I just think it will be a different way that you see me.”
