‘Blue Bloods’ Jennifer Espositos Booted After Twitter Rant

Submitted by on October 22, 2012 – 12:29 pm Comments

It looks like this could be the end we see of Jackie Curatola on ‘Blue Bloods’. As CBS put it, her character was on a leave of absence. This is due to a medical condition called Celiac. Their official statement according to EOnline was “Jennifer has informed us that she is only available to work on a very limited part-time schedule.  As a result, she’s unable to perform the demands of her role and we regretfully had to put her character on a leave of absence.  She is a wonderfully talented actress and we hope that she will be able to return at some point in the future.”

Now this is all well an good to stop an actress working on a show if their life is in danger, but Espositos didn’t take it too lightly. She tweeted, “CBS PUT me on unpaid leave an has blocked me from working anywhere else after my doctor said u needed a reduced schedule due to celiac”. Her comments are not going to permanently ban her from the show. This goes to show that you can’t say anything you want on Twitter and think that it would come back and bite you. Let this be a lesson to all you teenagers out there.

The rant sparked the network into putting Megan Ketch into the spotlight as Danny’s permanent partner. Esposito, who was married to Bradley Cooper for a while, has battled Celiac disease for a while and has helped in advocating for others. It is sad to see the actress gets fired after things that she has written on social media, but she should know better. With the many who are perfect examples of what your comments are going to do to you should have been enough.

However, there are those who stand by the actress saying that they agree with Espositos and her rant against the CBS network. There are many things that an actress can do. However, Twitter Call-Outs are not one of them. When you play with fire, you are going to get burned. Apparently Espositos didn’t know when it was right to jump out. They also feel that Espositos has a sound argument here. There are others who agree with CBS and feel that the actress is only trying to get a raise.

There are a lot of questions that are still up in the air and will take a while to sort out. Thankfully they are allowing for 3 more episodes of the character of Jackie Curatola.
