Rumors and speculation are the lifeblood of fandom. These channels give fans a way to express and entertain themselves, even after they’ve discussed all the action, every hidden meaning and the minutia involved with their favorite TV shows. Rumors are an outlet. They are the embodiment of our love and our paranoia. They are also, almost always, ridiculously untrue. Every show is surrounded by rumors. Most never gain any traction once they’ve been started, but sometimes, when the conditions are just right, a rumor takes flight, infiltrating forums and penetrating even the thickest of our skins. We skeptics might pretend that we're unaffected, but deep down we feel something; it starts out as a near-silent murmur in the pit of our stomachs, grows to a twinge and then is vocalized from our lips in a resounding "what if?"
With love comes fear. These two elements of the human condition are always connected. The worst part about our love is the necessary fear of loss associated with it. Our world is filled with temporariness. Everything around us has a shelf-life and coming to terms with that is difficult, especially if that life is to be ended before we're ready. When it comes to our favorite TV shows, we're almost never ready. We wouldn't be able to cope without it. So, we grin and bear the rumors. Every whisper we hear, we scoff at, cackling at the ridiculousness of it all. Yet, deep in our hearts, we're praying it's not true. Thankfully, most of them aren’t. Here are some of the wildest we've heard so far. Here are the 15 stupidest rumors about TV cast members leaving the show.
15 Jim Parsons – The Big Bang Theory
14 Trai Byers – Empire
13 Steve Burns – Blue's Clues
12 Pauley Perrette – NCIS
11 Blake Shelton – The Voice
10 Rodger Bumpass – Spongebob Squarepants
9 The Entire Cast – The View
8 Norman Reedus – The Walking Dead
7 Steven Amell – Arrow
6 Peter Capaldi – Doctor Who
5 Emilia Clarke – Game of Thrones
4 Andrew Lincoln – The Walking Dead
3 Ellen DeGeneres – The Ellen Show
2 Ariel Winter - Modern Family
1 Kaley Cuoco – The Big Bang Theory
Some rumors surfaced recently suggesting that Kaley Cuoco, star of the smash hit TV show The Big Bang Theory, is seriously considering leaving her steady-paying gig. Apparently, Cuoco is said to be jealous of actress Melissa Rauch and the newfound attention that her character, Bernadette, is receiving from the writers. You probably know that Bernadette is pregnant, so the show is having fun with creating episodes centered on her mood swings and difficulties adjusting to pregnant life. This whole Cuoco leaving the show thing makes sense if you forgot that the actress makes ONE friggin' MILLION dollars an episode. The only way Cuoco is leaving the set is through death or fire, either being fired or lit on fire. There's no other place in the world that she makes that much money ever again.
