She then popped by Entertainment Tonight, where she opened up to former General Hospital star Matt Cohen (ex-Griffin) about how good it felt to be back. Mowry-Housley dished:

There's so much chemistry between us girls and I felt so honored to be one of the OG hosts. So seeing them it was like, 'Ahh, there they are! Hi, guys!' And I still haven't been able to give them hugs and kisses.

Mowry-Housley noted:

I never got to really say goodbye. I never got a proper kind of exit because of the pandemic. I was already thinking about moving on to my next chapter. I knew it since the beginning of season 6 that I was going to [leave].

Why? She explained:

It was something that I needed to do for myself. Creatively, I was feeling a little dormant. I was missing home, missing acting as well.
