Why did they replace the daughter on American Housewife?

The character of Anna Kat was played by Julia Butters till season four but the makers decided to replace Julia Butters with Giselle Eisenerg. The reason for the same is because she was cast in Quentin Tarantino's movie, Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood, opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. She decided to leave the sitcom in order to look for better opportunities. 

Who is Katie's mom on American Housewife

Wendie Malick plays the role of Katie Otto's mother in the sitcom. The actress portrays a melodramatic mother, Marilyn, a former Pan Am stewardess who invites herself for Thanksgiving dinner and shows up wearing what looks like an erector set on her head.
