[Blind Gossip] Have you ever wondered why a young star would quit a TV show at the height of its popularity? This young actress said it was because she wanted to continue her education. Some speculate it was actually because an older male cast member made her feel uncomfortable.
No and no. Here’s the real story!
She was dating a young actor who had guest-starred on her TV show. After his guest stint was over, he enrolled in college on the opposite coast. Our actress wanted to live with him. So she abruptly quit the show, publicly claiming that she had decided to go back to school because her education was so important to her. How could fans be mad at her for being so intelligent and so mature? She moved across the country – not coincidentally to the same city as the young actor – moved in with him, and enrolled in a nearby school.
The producers of the show were furious that she had abandoned the show and lied about the reason to make herself look good! They knew that co-habitating with the young actor was the true reason for the actress’ departure, but they could not publicly call her a liar. So they did something really sneaky.
The producers publicly commended the actress for pursuing her education. Then they called the actor… and offered him a permanent role on the TV show! He was thrilled. He immediately dropped out of school, moved cross-country and joined the show as a regular… leaving the actress living alone in a city she didn’t care about, attending a school she didn’t care about, and pursuing an education she didn’t care about!
Can you guess what happened next? Yes, our actress dropped out of school, moved cross-country again, and rejoined the show she had quit. She never went back to school. Guess that education wasn’t so important to her after all.
