Today's Blind Items - The Show

In the past, I have written about some shows that have gone off the rails in a big way. Most of them involved some combination of drugs/partying or out of control love triangles that caused big problems when a star would invariably want to leave.

This particular show was very short lived. Did it get low ratings? Yes. Did the network air it in a time slot that would ensure it get low ratings? Yes. Was there a huge controversy surrounding the show? Yes. All of those things contributed to the show's demise, but there were several unaired shows. How come it was canceled prior to those episodes airing? It is because the controversy about a story line was actually happening to an actress on the show and the network freaked out and shut it down when they heard. One of the stars of the show was an actor all of you know. He was not a big star then, but he slept with two of the actresses on the show, both of whom would go on to have B list careers. One still works, and the other does not. The one that does not, all of you know. The actor was having sex with both actresses without the knowledge of either. One of the actresses got pregnant and had an abortion. The show was pulled from the network a couple of hours before an episode was to air. The executives at the network learned of the abortion and canceled the show and no one at the network was allowed to discuss the show at all. That ban lasted a solid year or two before people forgot about it.
