Why did Robin Hartl REALLY leave the PBS home improvement TV series
'Hometime'? Does it anything to do w/ those Little Giant Ladder
infomercials she does and the fact that she wanted to continue doing
more of them (but w/ 'Home Improvement' star Richard Karn, since co-star
Dean Johnson wanted to continue doing more seasons of "H" and their
contracts wouldn't allow them to do both) or w/ the rumor that she's a
chronic alcoholic who constantly came to work drunk and secretly
regularly drank on the job??? The IMDb (Internet Movie Database) doesn't
have any detailed and/or updated information on her. Thanks! :-)

Whoops! Disregard that last post... I should have Googled her name
first. lol I got the answer right here. It's (((not))) that she drinks
on the job. She thinks she can score more $$$ hawking Little Giant
Ladders. Read below:
HOST ROBIN HARTL LEAVES HOMETIME T.V. SHOW
The Hometime website has posted a story announcing that Hometime co-host
Robin Hartl has left the show after 12 years with the program. The
posting states that since programs have been taped in advanced, she will
continue appearing in episodes during the early part of 2005. To read
the news story, go to: http://www.hometime.com/About/press_robin.htm
Separately, Little Giant Ladders announced that Hartl has signed a long
term promotional contract with that company. Hartl's relationship with
Little Giant began in late 2003 when she and Dean Johnson (Hartl's
co-host of "Hometime") shot an infomercial for Little Giant Ladder
Systems, which began airing in early 2004 and rapidly became the top
ranked infomercial in the country.
Former "Home Improvement" Tim Allen sidekick Richard Kan (Al Borland)
will join Hartl as spokesperson for the brand.
