Today, Kimberly took to Twitter to address her decision to leave, and to thank her fans for all their support.
"Thank you for your tweets. I have read all of them. I wish I had words for the type of gratitude I feel for all of your support for so many years. Personally, I feel like it's the right time for me to pursue my dream of directing episodic TV as well as writing and directing feature films. I am heartbroken as well. To leave Robin, a character that is a huge part of myself and my life. "GH" is my family and you (the fans) are like my extended family. I hope you will come with me along the journey. I've enjoyed getting to know so many of you. If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have been able to make Nice Guys Finish Last, a film that ultimately gave me the courage to leave the nest and step behind the camera. In the coming months [Jason Thompson (Patrick)]and I will pour our heart and soul into the story that is given to us. I can promise you that much. Everything else is out of our control. I am sad too, but I intend to make the best of it. Again, thanks for the love and opinions and support. I appreciate it more than I can ever express. Stay tuned..."
