Brooke Shields: Lipstick Jungle Not Canceled

Brooke Shields: Lipstick Jungle Not Canceled

Brooke Shields says her NBC drama Lipstick Jungle hasn’t been canned.

“They thought that because My Own Worst Enemy has been shut down that the same thing had happened to us, and it’s not true,” she said at Sunday’s Cookie magazine Kidsfest in NYC. “They’re not breaking down the sets. We’re still working. We still have more to do, so it’s erroneously presented that we’ve been canceled, thank God. Our bosses are saying, ‘You’re not canceled, don’t worry. We’re just trying to figure out how to make this make sense.’ It’s been insane. I think that the public outcry has been crazy, and it’s kind of wonderful. We’re basically No. 1 if you look at DVR. And you look at all that. So the public is watching it.”

Fans have been sending tubes of lipstick to the President & CEO of NBC Universal: Jeff Zucker, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, 52nd Floor, New York, NY, 10112. And as a bonus, lipstick to the co-chairman of NBC: Ben Silverman, 100 Universal City Plaza, Bldg 1280 Flr 11, Universal City, CA, 91608.

Almost 250 of you commented on the news of Lipstick Jungle being canceled. Who do you believe, The Hollywood Reporter or one of the stars of the show?

    Maybe Katie Holmes can give her a job since I heard her show has been cancelled. Ms. Holmes probably needs a maid in her New York apartment oh, that’s right, BS is in Calif. well she could probably work in KH’s 34 room mansion.

  • silverpink

    it’s a good news
    i believe Brooke Shields!!!

  • Nicole

    Hollywood reporter, of course. Either way I bet there’s no next season.

  • Donna RO

    I hope they don’t cancel Lipstick Jungle!! I love that show. It is the only show on NBC that I do like. I would be so sad if they cancel it. :(

  • mika

  • nike

    I hope they cancel more trashy shows and bring back more traditional family programs.

  • Hm

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOT WOOT!

  • Suyen

    This show rocks.
    No way should it be cancelled….

  • sharene

    she’s severely deluded if she thinks shes got the number 1 show with tv ratings.

  • TASH

    sweet, it’s not canceled!
    I believe Brooke, I mean, you’d think she know whether they were filming new episodes or not, lol.

  • LuckyL

    It’s on the -verge- of being cancelled. Why do they need to “figure out how to make this make sense”? Because their asses are on the line.

    Oh please, Brooke Shields is an icon either way. Scientology Kate’s job is following Tommy boy’s orders at all times. Don’t even compare Down Syndrome eyes Kate with Brooke Shields.


    THANK YOU BROOKE SHIELDS FOR CONFIRMING THAT!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LIPSTICK JUNGLE AND I was devastated to hear that my favourite show lipstick jungle has been cancelled. Im so happy and relieved that the show is going on and i look forward to every single episode, i think its better than sex and the city and these actresses are more beautifull and stylish. I love to see what happens to Kirby and Nico:)

    Sign the petition to save the show:

    Send tubes of lipstick and keep your TV ON even if your not home this Friday night to support the show.


  • ace

    obviously i believe brook. its better to believe something from the own stars of the show mouth.
    omg haters shld seriously get a life and not ruin things. go watch days of our lives or play chess or something. if u dun have anything good to say please dun. its better and peaceful if everyone keeps their comment to themselves.tsk2.

  • bedi

    Just because they’re still working doesn’t mean it isn’t cancelled. Maybe they just have to finish the scripts that were written.

    Anyways, I’ve never watched it, so I don’t care.

  • Freddie

    That’s awesome!!

  • Hanna


  • Ana

    I’d rather believe Brooke Shields but, let’s face it, entertainment is a back-stabbing business like no other. I hope she is right because the Lipstick Jungle is great.

    (The axe could come down to some other less inspired shows before hitting the girls.)

  • The Fan

    To #21: Keeping your televisions on even if you’re not watching the show won’t do anything ratings wise. This is what many people fail to realize: If you’re not a “Nielson house,” and chances are you aren’t, your viewing habits won’t be recognized in regards to ratings.

    Also, there’s no way that Lipstick Jungle is #1 by any stretch of the imagination. That comment alone makes me believe that Brooke Shields doesn’t know what she’s talking about.

  • Nicole

    I LOVE LIPSTICK JUNGLE!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone needs to send in their lipsticks and keep the show on!

  • Vivien

    The outcry against LJ’s rumored cancellation has been incredible. The show’s website board forum has been deluged with lots of support for this show. This is one of the few shows that NBC that has people really riled up. I’m a LJ fan – it’s one of the few shows out there that’s about successful women. Lots of fans have been sending in lipstick to the NBC honchos.

  • sara

    I’m so happy to read this, i hope it’s true!

  • JOY

    Too bad because that show sucks !!!!

  • Lauren

    I believe you Brooke!!!

  • Shopping27

    Don’t take it off!!!! I love it!!!! Can we write Zucker????

  • ToniAnn

    I really hope lipstick jungle is not cancelled…i LOVE that show! NBC would be foolish to cancel it, they barely have shows that are major hits. They need to take into account the people who DVR them, just because you can’t watch the show when it airs, doesn’t mean you don’t love to watch it!


    Cool =)

  • Kt

    ohh thats a bad bad picture

  • teresa
