GIRLFRIENDS' GUIDE TO DIVORCE: Janeane Garofalo to Exit - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


August 4, 2014 by  

Bravo’s first scripted series, GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE, will part ways with planned series regular Janeane Garofalo, a source has confirmed.

According to TVLine (who was first to report Garofalo’s departure), Garofalo will continue to shoot scenes for the show until October, and her exit is “part of the natural evolution of the character.” (No word yet on how many episodes Garofalo will actually appear in.)

GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE stars Lisa Edelstein as Abby, a self-help author who initially tries to hide her separation from her husband (played by PRIVATE PRACTICE’s Paul Adelstein) in order to maintain her image. The series also stars Beau Garrett and Necar Zadegan. Garofalo was set to play Lyla, one of Abby’s closest friends.

GIRLFRIENDS’ GUIDE TO DIVORCE is set to debut on Tuesday, December 2nd on Bravo.

    I like Janeane. It’s too bad. Odd to be leaving before the first season ending. I wonder what happened there.

    Hi Marisa,

    You went on set if I recall correctly.
    What do you think happened to lead to this early ‘divorce’?
    It seems quite odd.
    They all seemed to have some nice chemistry on the trailer.

    I miss character. She is a wonderful actress and would love to see her back, but if not in this show at least in other roles. She always makes the parts she plays very relateable.
