American Housewife cast includes Katie Mixon, Diedrich Bader, Meg Donnelly, Daniel DiMaggio among others. Read on to know why some of the cast members left the series midway.
According to a report by TV Line, the sitcom titled American Housewife, headlined by Katie Mixon as Katie Otto had original cast member Carly Hughes playing the role of Angela, one of Katie's best friends. Carly exited the series ahead of season 5 amid a workplace environment she claimed was toxic and subjected her to discrimination. Carly stated that she was no longer able to work amidst the toxic environment created on the sets of American Housewife. She added that she made the decision to leave to protect herself from discrimination and as a black woman in entertainment, she felt like she should stand up for what everybody deserves, to be treated equally. She concluded her statement by wishing the show well and claimed that she is excited to pursue opportunities ahead.
An American Housewife spokesman said in a statement to TV Line that Carly was a valued member of the cast, and they had hoped she would return to the show this season. It further read that the concerns she raised led to positive changes to the workplace and improvements to the culture, but they respect the decision she made to move on. They wished her nothing but the best.
According to a report by Distractify, child actor Julia Butters played Anna Kat for the entire series up until Season 5. The young actor decided to quit the sitcom when she bagged a role in a major film starring Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio titled Once Upon A Time In Holywood, directed by Quentin Tarantino. Julia wanted to spread her wings and get better opportunities and the producers of American Housewife granted that. Presently, the role of Anna Kat is being portrayed by Giselle Eisenberg.
