For nearly three years, American fans of Supernanny Jo Frost have waited for the other shoe to drop.
After all, the beloved star had abruptly left the ABC series following the ninth season. It was hard for fans not to feel a little abandoned by her too.
And although she said she planned to start a family of her own, repeated Googling failed to reveal news of a pregnancy or adoption. (Efforts at more on-the-ground stalking were thwarted by the Atlantic Ocean.)
Worse, Frost seemed to have no problem starring in other, international editions of Supernanny or in launching a new British series. But stateside her fans were left to pine in vain.
It's like first she broke up with us, telling us it was her, not us, then we discover it was us all along!
The pain of her absence was--for many--made all the more acute by the launch of America's Supernanny featuring non-Jo Frost nanny Deborah Tillman, who constantly reminded Jo Frost fans that she wasn't Jo Frost.
Finally, there is salve for those emotional wounds: the announcement that Jo Frost is in fact returning to American TV in a new TLC reality series, Family S.O.S. With Jo Frost, which premieres May 28th.
It's the Jo Frost that Jo Frost fans have been waiting for.
