Famous Actress Jennifer Esposito accused CBS TV chiefs after she was dropped from her role on the series of Blue Bloods.
She has blamed them for shameful behaviour’ after she claiming she has been prevented from work following an on-set collapse, while Esposito took to her Twitter account to hit out at CBS accusing them of ‘shameful behaviour’.
The 39 year old woman, who suffers from immune disease Celiac, claims TV chiefs accused her of faking the illness to get a pay rise. The story primarily did not mention tensions between Esposito and CBS Studios, which produces Blue Bloods.
The war of words erupted after Esposito, who plays Detective Jackie Curatola, was told that she was being put on unpaid leave from the hit series. In a statement, CBS Studios told Deadline: “Jennifer has informed us that she is only available to work on a very limited part-time schedule.
Consequently, she is unable to perform the demands of her role and we regretfully had to put her character on a leave of absence. She says CBS didn’t listen to my doc and I collapsed on set. Which everyone saw! After a week off my doc said I could return to work but CBS implied that I was NOT truly ill and this was a scheme to get a raise!
‘It’s been almost two months without bringing me back to work + keeping Me from working anywhere else!…Absolutely shameful behavior.’
