Jill Marie Jones’ (who played Toni Childs) left the show in 2006, two years prior to the show ending. She reportedly chose not to return to the show after her six-year contract was complete and the show was never really the same.
When Charlamagne asked the cast if they felt Jones’ decision was selfish, Brooks said they all respected her choice. ”
“One thing you cannot do is tell someone or project how you would do something onto someone else,” Brooks noted.
“She made a choice that was right for her. That was her choice and we have to respect that, and we did.”
