Monica Potter will no longer be starring in the upcoming Netflix series Sweet Magnolias.

The 48-year-old Parenthood actress has been replaced in the series by JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Deadline reports. It’s unknown why the show made the casting change.

JoAnna will now be playing Maddie Townsend – “a low-key, but resolute, warm and loving woman with a vocabulary like Southern poetry. She finds herself at a crossroads in her life and her best friends are trying desperately to convince her that now is the time for reinvention.”

Jamie Lynn Spears, Brooke Elliott, Heather Headley, Chris Klein, and Justin Bruening will also star. The series is based on Sherryl Woods’ popular series of novels set in Serenity, South Carolina.

The two were first married in 2005, and have a 12-year-old daughter named Molly Brigid. Monica also has two sons – Liam, 23, and Daniel, 27 – from a previous marriage.

The news of their split comes soon after Monica posted a photo on Instagram that was mistakenly interpreted as a pregnancy announcement, but in fact was meant to provide awareness about her gastrointestinal issues from colitis.

Parenthood's Monica Potter Is Not Pregnant, Shares Colitis Diagnosis

Monica Potter posted a photo of her bare stomach last night and had people thinking she’s pregnant!

However, the 46-year-old Parenthood actress clarified that she’s not pregnant and actually has been diagnosed with colitis. She posted the image to raise awareness.

“So we posted something yesterday about my belly, and thank you for all of the well-wishes – I’m not pregnant. I’m kind of a little old to be pregnant, but you never know. But what I wanted to bring to everyone’s awareness was some issues that I’ve been having with my belly, and sometimes these issues aren’t talked about. Colitis, Crohn’s, and getting a colonoscopy to diagnose what’s going on with our stomachs and intestinal problems,” Monica said in a YouTube video.

“I haven’t really talked about it. It’s not really glamorous. I’ve had to wear adult diapers sometimes driving [her daughter] Molly to school. That’s not really glamorous either. But I think finding the right healthcare provider and dealing with these issues can prolong your life and also diagnose things you might not really understand,” Monica added.
