WHAT A BEAST!!!!! She's full of lies! Everyone else who's been on the show has loved the cast. She can bite me.
WHATEVER.

in the show business it is a common rule to speak always well about colleagues, work environments, relations, etc. I admire Kristanna for having the courage to break with the general hypocrisy and leaving without trying to find excuses. I wonder if the intense turn-over of the major characters may not be another indication of some serious problems behind the scenes.

Intense turn-over of the major characters? Are we talking about the same show?

I think it is too soon to assume that Kristanna acted out of courage in the rightful sense. I mean, you did take into consideration that Kristanna had been offered the lead of a new series called "Painkiller Jane" while she was already under contract with 'The L Word" right? And I am sure you were also aware of the fact that Painkiller Jane would be filming around the same times that "the l word" would be filming. So how does one get out of a 2 year contract so they can take the more lucrative offer? I'm just saying that it is just way to coincidental in my opinion that the only person to ever have anything bad to say about The L Word cast quite possibly had other things going on behind the scenes that not everyone was made aware of.

I may have to hurt some people for giving Kristanna a hard time.

I think what she said might be true, since she is not the only one who have said it. I will not tell the name of the person, but let's just say that an actress who appeared on the show told a good friend of mine that many of them were full of themselves... Sad but probably true.

What? I thought only men were hostile. Women are all about cooperation and harmony. There must be a man behind the scenes somewhere who is causing Kristanna to leave. Women good,(straight) men bad.

I had a friend that worked on the show for the first season and said EVERY SINGLE cast member from the series had an attitude except Mia (Jenny). Which is funny b/c her character was such a douche! My friend said the cast looked down on everyone else. I have talked to more than a few people that met Leisha Hailey and said she is a royal B! Sadly, people in Hollywood are not as they appear (like their character) and as soon as ppl realize this the better.
