The producer recently sat down in a VPR producers panel at the BravoCon 2023. During the event, she was asked if she thought Lewis not returning for the eleventh season was a mistake. To this, she responded, “I don’t want to say it was a mistake because she made the decision that was good for her at that time.”

Mix then went on to add, “But I do believe that she had more story to tell as you guys all salivated over that last 5 minutes. Like, there’s more to that. And I think if she would have come back, it would have been more rewarding for her, and she would be able to look at herself better.”
