After leaving TOWIE last year, the glamour model appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, landed her own Channel 5 show It's All About Amy and has been tipped to earn over £10m in 2012 - significantly more than any of her former co-stars.
"Leaving TOWIE was the best thing I've ever done," Mr Paparazzi quotes her as saying. "I have my own reality show and so much going on that I've never regretted leaving for a second."
Childs went on to reveal that she has even stopped watching The Only Way Is Essex since branching out on her own.
"I've been so busy that I've not really watched the show since I left," she said. "But I did ask Harry Derbidge to buy me the third series on DVD."
Childs' TOWIE departure paved the way for Mark Wright and Kirk Norcross to leave the cast, with the latter following in her footsteps and entering the Celebrity Big Brother house last Thursday (January 5).
Derbidge, Sam Faiers and James 'Arg' Argent have also suggested that they may quit.
