Selma Blair Gone from "Anger Management"


Posted on: June 19th, 2013 by ABC News No Comments

Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — It seems Charlie Sheen’s reported feud with Selma Blair on the set of Anger Management has cost her her job.

Lionsgate, which produces the FX sitcom, announced on Tuesday, “We are confirming that Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management and we wish her the very best.”  

The announcement came after TMZ.com reported that Sheen had told producers he would quit unless they began the process of firing Blair as soon as possible.  TMZ reported earlier this week that Sheen was upset that she allegedly complained about his work habits to the show’s executives.

To say that Sheen would have left a lot of money on the table had he quit the show would be a huge understatement.  TMZ notes that he stands to earn between $75 million and $200 million if he completes the network’s 100-episode order for Anger Management.  He reportedly has taped approximately half that amount to date.

TMZ further reports that when Blair was approached by a photographer Tuesday morning regarding her job status, she answered, “I don’t know anything.”  Well, now she does.

Deadline.com reports Sheen informed Blair of her firing by text message, and even called her the “C” word.

Blair played Kate, the therapist of Sheen’s character, on Anger Management.  According to Deadline, the role will not be recast.

As you’ll recall, Sheen was fired from the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men in 2011 after repeated rants against the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.
