Why Is Bauer Leaving?
There had been no rumors of Bauer’s departure going around, so her announcement came as a shock. Rest assured, she’s leaving on a good note and she’s not getting fired.
She’s not leaving for other job opportunities, either. In fact, Bauer has no intention of getting back to work anytime soon.
She made the decision to leave to pursue the second act of her life. Bauer, who turned 50 in 2018, is going to devote the time she will get after leaving QVC to her family and herself.
Bauer’s son, Trevor, recently entered his teenage years and her daughter, Kylie, is set to leave for college. She now hopes to spend whatever free time she has with her growing kids while she still can.
She will set up new Facebook and Instagram accounts once she’s no longer attached to QVC. So, you can count on seeing more of her comfort food recipes and what she’s up to.
Her fans are obviously sad to say goodbye, but they are happy that she will pursue other aspects of her life and wish her well. And who knows, maybe we’ll see her on TV again.
