Word is there will be no season finale episode for “Girlfriends”, and the cast intends to sue:
“The CW made the cast members an offer to return for a ‘retrospective’ episode that would feature recaps of the previous shows and cast members reflecting on those shows. The CW apparently only offered to pay the actors half of their episodic salary to shoot the makeshift finale, thus the stars collectively opted not to participate.
In addition, [it is alleged that] The CW refuses to honor the contracts of the principal cast members and does not intend to pay the actors for the nine episodes that will not be taped.
Now the show stars have hired a litigator who will file a joint lawsuit on behalf of the talent, suing the network for the money they are due.
‘The network told them point blank, ‘Sue us!’ After using this show to help build its name, The CW has turned their back on them and disrespected them in the most horrible way,’ said someone associated with the show, who spoke under the condition of anonymity.”
Come on now folks, you had to see this coming. Those networks (the UPN & the CW) have been f**king with the cast for quite some time now. Best of luck to them on their lawsuit strategy. Golden could use that extra cheddar for a new stylist.
