Just one day after The New York Post broke millions of Americans’ hearts with news that Denise Richards’ E! reality series It’s Complicated had been cancelled, it seems that may not be so. (Also, John Kerry didn’t tap Dick Gephardt for veep in 2004.)
The Los Angeles Times‘s Dish Rag blogger Denise Martin is reporting that Ms. Richards and E! may work it out after all. "We’re still in discussions," Ms. Martin quotes an E! representative. "The show actually did really well for us. It was our third-highest series premiere. There’s no decision yet." Broadcating & Cable‘s Alex Weprin also spoke to an unnamed E! rep who told him, "No, it hasn’t been canceled." (In May, Media Mob checked out Ms. Richards’ early numbers.)
Yesterday’s report that It’s Complicated had been canned prompted gleeful responses from The Los Angeles Times, which quipped Denise Richards’ TV show not so ‘Complicated.’ Just awful and Defamer which went with ‘Denise Richards’: It’s Cancelled. Our sibling blog, The Culture Czar, also weighed in.
