[Blind Gossip] The producers of this television show allowed the tail to wag the dog, and the results were both predictable and ugly.
Actor 1 and Actress 1 didn’t just screw over their Costar. They also messed with another cast member’s paychecks!
Actress 2 got caught in the crossfire. She was going to be transitioning off the show eventually. However, the producers decided that they could not have two popular characters leave so close together. So they had to get rid of Actress 2 immediately. We already told you how this is going to happen on the show.
Actress 2 was furious about being given the bum’s rush! She was counting on those steady paychecks. She does know that Actor 1 and Actress 1 were responsible for this and is really pissed off at them. However, Actress 2 is more mature than her colleagues so don’t expect to hear any public anger from her (or her man) about how she was screwed over in this.
The final cast member that was directly impacted is Actor 2. He was the guy that Actor 1 and Actress pitched to the producers to replace Costar and become Actor 1’s boyfriend on the show. According to Actor 1, “Costar isn’t good-looking or talented enough to play (my character’s) boyfriend. I deserve to have someone better looking and more talented.” Yes, Actor 1 really said that.
Actor 2 wasn’t a regular on the show, but he did have some story arcs, and became off-screen friends with Actor 1 and Actress 1. He was initially amenable to taking the job, but – when all the drama and craziness started going down – he bowed out, citing other work commitments. That was smart of him.
How and when are they going to write Costar out of the series? The short answer is… nobody knows! The writers can’t figure out how take out his character without leaving too many plot holes. The latest idea is to let his character move to the big city (as originally planned) for just a couple of episodes, and then get rid of him. No, we don’t think that they will kill him off. After all, this is comedy, not Game of Thrones (although we love the idea of a “Red Audition” episode)!
So, to summarize, here is what we know TODAY (but keep in mind that things are changing on a daily basis): Actress 2 is out in the next couple of episodes but will occasionally make guest appearances; Actor 2 is out as a series regular; Costar is out (as soon as they can figure out a departure story that works) and will not be making any return appearances once he’s gone; the cast and crew are upset; and the plot is a big stinking mess… all thanks to the evil plotting of Actor 1 and his wing man Actress 1!
Of course, everyone could kiss and make up and be happy tomorrow. But we doubt it.
