I'm probably one of the few who won't be crying over this. I'm not, nor I ever was a huge fun of Huddy, so this news will at least spare me that aspect of the show next season. Though the show in itself is becoming quite dull, so I'll probably just be watching out of habit only.

@mumster99 yeah, me too! is either one of the two for me: either she didn't quit, she was wrote off and now they're just saying she quit so we won't be mad at the writers OR she didn't want to see her salary cutted back and went all diva on us, which i doubt.

Can't quite believe it yet.
I'm starting to wander whether I will watch House next season or not.
But if she don't get a proper send off, I'm done.

I dont think the producers have writen her out, ther is no way if they had this would have been leaked now and because katie j said the other week that she was working hard to get her back and could not start writing until she knew she was coming back.I sadly think this is lisa choice which with only one year left is unfair.plus she was not at the end of season party and thing have seemed a bit odd.

LMAO!! Well isn't this just dandy? Another one of my favorite characters will no longer be on one of my favorite tv shows. Looks like Criminal Minds just took top place as my fave show. About Lisa Edelstein though, I will always love her and watch whatever she's in. Good luck to her! TV is starting suck like movies, thank GOD for video games!!!

@solo1861- Unfortunately, I don't think her character will get a proper send off. In fact, I don't think she'll get any kind of a send off because I don't the writers were expecting her to quit. I have to admit, I for one will be very disappointed to see her go without any send off.

Steady on now!!

LE is in no way shape or form a lead on the show. HUGH is the principal in the show and that is why he gets paid what he does. This show is called HOUSE not House & Cuddy! Although the Huddy arc was very interesting and something many of us were excited about.

I for one am not surprised. THAT IMO is why they wanted the 23rd episode. Could be her screen time would be less, or she was offered fewer episodes, they do get paid by episode, which would mean less money, so that could be a reason.
Perhaps SHE decided enough is enough, since Huddy is over and HULI is clearly not on the cards, she feels it is best to leave and get on with life. Get away from Hugh as soon as she can, since he has made it quite clear he will be returning to the UK to his family once House is over.

However if this is true and it was HER decision it is weird, because she was always gushing about how she loved the show and the cast and crew, that they are the best in the biz and would definitely be there for as long as they wanted her. I can't see TPTB wanting to get rid of her, because she is very close with KJ and BS in particular. I mean it is not like she is the MOST sought after actress in Hollywood!! What is she leaving for?

I am going to wait and see what happens! This could just be a negotiating tactic!! Some seem to think RR caused this, but RR is insignificant, he is a nobody, a non entity as far as I'm concerned. As far as Hugh, I'm sure he'll miss her, they are supposed to be friends and having worked so closely together for so long it is natural. But his world won't end if she is not there!

Season 8 is definitely the last season.

I... I don't understand how this will work out! We all saw how it went when they had Cameron take over. And there are so many unfinished storylines that need to be covered!
What also confuses me is she was hoping for a season 8... Why the sudden change of heart? :( And Lisa E is an amazing actress! She will be sorely missed!

Dont get me wrong, I love this show to bits, but the first three to five seasons were best. Its definitely changed recently - theres no element of the old housian humour really anymore, and we never see anything like clinic duty, house chilling watching his soaps in coma guys room or anything.
I am forever a Huddy believer to the core and am gutted there will be no hope for them in future, and will miss Lisa incredibly, but I dont blame her for leaving - whether she turned down an offer, simply didnt want to negotiate or just wanted to move on its her choice and I respect that. I only wish the storylines all had chance to be tied up properly with her - this has always annoyed me slightly about the organisation here, as it seems silly to end a season without solidly knowing whats going to happen the season after - characters may not return and we will be left hanging like this.
I will just put on season five and wallow in the Huddy sexual tension forever more.

I'm so sad about this. Below is Lisa Edelstein's statement. Doesn't really say much.

"After much consideration, I am moving onward with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead," Edelstein's spokesperson quoted the actress as saying in a statement made to OnTheRedCarpet.com on Tuesday, May 17.

As you, i am so sad!!!... at this point I think, I feel a little bit like HOUSE.
Please Cuddy, Please LE ... Don't leave us !!! we love you, and we love HOUSE... and the show. (T_T)
–HOUSE is going to lose the love of his life... (no matter what they say... they are made for each other)
–WILSON is going to lose a truly friend...
–THE TEAM is going to lose a great boss...

AND The show can be lose a lot of HUDDYs FANS !!! (I hope not for hugh)

Me imagino que como yo hay muchas HUDDYS "Foraneas" sufriendo por esta noticia. La verdad no se si seguir viendo esta serie que ha sido MI FAVORITA por mucho. Tal vez si... esperando que Cuddy reaparezca en algún momento y se quede hasta el FINAL!!!

Personally I have no idea why the Producers hooked up the CHARCTERS of House and Cuddy at all. To me this was the kiss of death for the show. During this time House was her little lap dog doing everything her way INCLUDING his job. I was so very happy when they broke up because House was getting back to his old personality. BUT lets face it the economy sucks now so it's even going to effect your favorite show. I read that 3 actors from House were going to take a pay cut. In conclusion stop bashing the SHOW as a whole. HOUSE is just that-not CUDDY or HUDDY! Find another to romanticize about the main characters and see it get canceled! No where to go BORING!

@Housee Actually, it had nothing to do with Huddy. It was the way they handled it. If it was handled better, than we would be fine. It wasn't handled well. I can understand that you arent a Huddy but Cuddy is still a HUGE part of the show and a part of House's life. Without her, an element of the show is gone and its gonna fail.

LE quitting over money?! I don't get it. That makes her sound trivial and selfish. I always thought that she wasn't like that. Is she trying to bring the show down with her? Like.....?

HuddyJoy0524. Hun money makes the world go round. I have said all along that her motivation is money. It has nothing to do with creative differences, personal feelings and relationships or even it seems loyalty.

She wants her pound of flesh and because she is not going to get it she will do the only thing she can to properly screw with the show its producers and the fans.......resign!!

Thing is if they have taken this long to come to an agreement on Season 8 all the cast and crew and even TPTB would have been aware of the implications.
A few months ago she was all "Yes we are looking forward to Season 8 and we all will be on board."

What happened between then and now?
Salary negotiations!!!

Only Hugh, Olivia and Peter are unaffected. By leaving Lisa Edelstein is showing that all her gushing about working on House the best cast, crew, writers blah blah blah was all just lip service.

She was offered a contract, it was obviously NOT what she was expecting, but in this global crunch one would think she is smart enough to take what she can get. It is only one more season after all. And who says NO to $2 million in this economic climate? So now she will earn nothing. House is a global phenom, sorry for her. And if by some miracle the economy recovers, and it is decided to give the ones that stayed for less bonuses or they decide to make another season (unlikley) she will be out in the cold.

This move just shows that she is not loyal to anything but the money. It is a shame really.

They might decide to better her deal to see if she changes her mind, but she really is just being mercenary!!

Her leaving will also affect others, the twins that play Rachel are now also going to loose their contracts and that is a real shame. They are little and just starting out. They are loosing a job and they can do nothing about it.

Her deal will be with NBCU & Fox. KJ, DS, RSL and Hugh really have no input, and clearly they have little to say at this point. I doubt Hugh will say anything he is to much a gentleman but I am sure he has his own thoughts on the matter.

Just because she is leaving does not mean everything is falling apart. If Hugh left only then would things fall apart!!

Now you Cuddy fans know how us Cameron fans felt when Jen was written out of the show, but at least you actually got a televised relationship to enjoy for a while. Be grateful for what you had.
