I believe Disney will keep Chyna around if they can. She is a talented singer, which they seem to love. I wouldn't mind watching her in something else, especially if they allow her to be a little more grown up.
I'm not so sure. Chyna is definitely young enough to stick around, but I'd be surprised if she's there post whenever her DCOM airs. I'm not even so sure the McClain sisters are still with Hollywood Records. I don't know if anything has officially been announced, but I no longer see them on the Hollywood website and the sisters just released a song independently. So if she's not on their record label anymore either and they're not making money off her that way, that's one less reason they would keep her around.
As for this show being the red headed stepchild, I think it just never caught on the way that Disney wanted. The ratings weren't abysmal, but I think they were lower than GLC, Jesse, SIU and most of the other recent shows. It never had very much buzz. I also think DC is trying to runoff most of the shows that are coming to an end as quickly as possible so they can usher in this new era of Disney.
Well they snatched up China for the DCOM How to Build a Better Boy which will be premiering sometime in 2014, probably the spring.
I think it was more likely her parting gift.
