He continued, "We will still be supporting the family as they carry the #LPBW torch onward. This is a decision concerning Audrey and me specifically - the show must go on! That being said, we're not disappearing. We have a lot of exciting stuff in the works and are eager to continue the work that the Lord has called us to!"
The reality star also added, "I also want to give a big thank you to the team at TLC. Thanks for putting up with us;) You've provided us with a grand opportunity and for that we are forever grateful."
