“I don’t know [if I’ll be coming back],” she told Access in November. “I think I had a really nice run with AGT. I had a lot, a lot of fun. I’m really focusing on Life-Size — I’m going to be producing TV and I have a massive project starting next year. I’m not so sure, but if I don’t come back, I had a lot of fun.”


While she wouldn’t tease too many details about the secret project, she did reveal it was “something that has never been done before.”

“It is so massive. It’s really making me look at everything that I’m doing and saying, ‘What can I peel off? What can I not do? What can I truly focus on?’ ” she said. “It’s coming out in the fall of next year.”
