Jo Frost'Supernanny' star Jo Frost has quit the hit ABC reality series to start her own family.

According to the New York Post, Frost will tape one more season of the series focusing on teen mothers.

"I have decided to hang up my cape," she told the newspaper. "It was a very conscious decision, through much reflection. But I need to create more balance in my life."

Frost has been traveling the U.S. and Britain since 2004, helping parents with unruly kids, but now she wants to focus on her own life and start a family. "Proper balance will allow me to date and have a relationship and look at my own future of having a family," she said.

Caprica started out slow but by the forth episode this fall had started to pick up steam again. Its too bad we won't get to see the rest. I really liked when Sam sent the Cylon in to wipe out the gangsters nest. I also wanted to see more of Zoe. They barely touched on her this fall.

I am a woman in my 40s and I couldn't wait every week for Caprica to come on. I told all my friends about it . I was captivated by the idea of machines taking over and becoming the dominate life form. The science was terrific and plausible.

Caprica fans need to move on. This series never lived up to its potential and was boring in the extreme.
