Jennifer Esposito, star of CBS’ Blue Bloods, returned to work after a medical leave of absence to find out that she no longer had a job. TVLine.com is reporting that Esposito’s character was written off the show only a day after collapsing on set due to her diagnosis with celiac disease.
Jennifer sat down with Fox News Channel to discuss the incident and said that her request to work less days was met with the news that she was suspended without pay. Under the suspension she is not allowed to seek employment on any other network show. She went on to call the whole incident ‘sickening’ and chalked it up to the CBS’ lack of understanding of her diagnosis.
- CBS announced that the actress would be replaced by a rotating cast who will all fill in as partner to Donnie Wahlberg’s character.
- Under the suspension, she is still permitted to accept film and theater work or roles on shows on cable networks that air in a different time slot than Blue Bloods.
