    Nope.
    They wrote her character out the show.
    It was something about a contract dispute.
    But she ain't coming back.

    Heck, no one wants their pay to be cut. But in the acting industry some work is better than no work at all. The remaining three on the show are still getting paid for this year along with repeated syndication which is only a portion share of what Jones is now getting.

    Why couldn't they have written her off as having reconciled with Joan? I haven't even been watching the show and the events taking place prior but I saw the episode where Joan comes back from New Orleans. Why couldn't the two have mended their friendship over the phone or something? Who is friends with someone for most of their life and just ends it in their adulthood? It's like they weren't that close to begin with, the 4 only got together because of them.

    i saw the first episode without her and they have the women at each others throats again. very harsh dialogue.
    i hate for this to be the picture of black friendship.

    I agree. These soi-dissant Black television shows are not at all representative of the Black community as a whole. These show can be very degrative and backwards. But that's America, right?!
