Because of her professional obligations, she was unable to attend normal school like other children.

As a teenager, she received all of her education from a private tutor.

Her problems became clear when the actress who starred in “Empty Nest” chose to quit the show midway through its run.

Kristy’s abrupt departure from “Empty Nest” presented the show’s producer with an unanticipated challenge.

According to her co-star, Richard Mulligan, the actress was one of the primary casts and a huge attraction for the series.

Therefore, her departure in 1992 left a big vacuum in the series’ attractiveness and plot.

The actress also noted that quitting the program was the most difficult decision she had to make, but it was necessary for her health.

The illness deteriorated as she grew older, and by the time she was 30, a chemical imbalance had become unmanageable.

Kristy declared her retirement from performing after 24 years in 2001.
