Why is Alanah Pearce leaving the Funhaus?
- Alanah is leaving because there is a new opportunity before her that she has to take, and couldn’t say no to. She can’t disclose what this is yet although she reassures fans that when they find out, they will be understanding of her decision.
Alanah still hasn’t told fans what she will be doing next or details on the opportunity, however, she did say that she would tell fans when she was allowed to.
In the video, Alanah also touches upon the recent scandal at Funhaus, that resulted in Adam Kovic and Ryan Haywood’s departure from the company. This is not the reason for her departure stating: “There is more that the [Funhaus] team has learned [about Haywood and Kovic] than the public is currently aware of … but I am 100% not leaving Funhaus because of what transpired there,”
She exclaims how Funhaus are in a strong and positive place, despite the recent news involving the two former Funhaus presenters.
Alanah told fans that she wishes she wasn’t leaving at this current period of time; she has a lot of faith in the Funhaus team, and she is particularly enjoying the content that has been made recently.
