When the fourth season of The People’s Couch premiered earlier this month, fans noticed that show mainstays the Egber family were mysteriously missing from the couch (er…bed). On Friday, the second episode of the season aired and the Egbers were still nowhere to be found, leaving fans to wonder what has become of Julie, Andrew, Sam and Jack (and their beloved neck pillows)?
Unfortunately for fans of the funny family, The Ashley can confirm that the Egbers will not appear on this season of the show.
Egber matriarch Julie took to her Twitter to tell fans that she and her family are “taking a break” from the show, and assured fans that she and her boys were not fired.
“[It was] our choice to take a break!” she tweeted. “Had to get off that bed!”
The family, who has been on the show since its first season, stated on their Twitter account that they are “on to bigger and better things.”
On the family’s Facebook page, the Egbers made it sound like they have no plans to return to the ‘Couch’ for future seasons.
“We have gone a different direction and we are not involved with the show anymore,” the family wrote. “Too many conflicts.”
The family informed fans that Sam Egber will be appearing in ‘Grease: Live’ this Sunday on FOX. (His neck pillow, however, was not given a role in the production, sadly.)
