However, she does proceed to say, “No, I don’t think it;s the last you’ll see if me, but you know, I also don’t look like an actor anymore. I’ve gained weight and I’m fine with that. For me to maintain that level of fitness, it’s like being an athlete. You have to maintain it. It takes money, time, effort, and focus- and I’m focused on other things. I’m focused on my brain. I’m focused on being a mother, and on growing in other ways. And honestly, I just don’t have the time to do that right now.”

General Hospital spoilers reveal McCullough is working on her next project, Directing for the Disney Channel Original, High School Musical: The Series.
