Spin City : Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

I really liked her on this show and was sad when she just disappeared. They never even explained it, did they? Does anyone know what happened?

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

That's a good question. I feel like she left on her own to pursue film.
I've been watching Spin City on FXX and was just wondering the same.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

I loved her in this. She fit in effortlessly. Simple fact is she made Summer Of Sam with Spike Lee and he encouraged her to get out of TV because he said it would trap her and to pursue movie roles. So she just left of her own accord and the writers (I don't think) acknowledged her disappearance. Mike was just trying to find a new assistant. Shame.


What the hell is a gigawatt?!

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

She left due to to having Celiac which wasn't diagnosed until a few years ago.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

She left to do movies. She had done a few movies when the series was on hiatus. Due to filming in New York, she had to turn down parts in other movies. She wanted out of her contract and when she ticked the producers off by not showing up for a taping of the episode 'Carter & Stuart & Bennet & Deirdre' the producers had enough and let her out of the contract for next year. In fact, her leaving was the main idea to bring Heather Locklear into the show.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

No. Not at all. She left/was fired due to being sick. It's called Celiac Disease. Read her book.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

Her leaving and the hiring of Heather Lockkear had nothing to do with each other.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

The problems with her health and celiac disease is what caused her to be fired from Blue Bloods, not Spin City.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

That is correct about Blue Bloods and I'm also correct about Spin City. She was let go due to her health problems which were undiagnosed at the time.

I'm glad he's single, because I'm gonna climb that like a tree.

Re: Did Jennifer Esposito leave on her own, or was she fired?

She left the cast after advice from director Spike Lee
