    She and Megan Fox could play sisters, if the latter went back to being tan again.

    Lost all respect I had for the cast of that show, after their greed suit, they are nothing but specks of dust in my eyes! Such a shame that show will go under due to their greed. They will do with out pay because I dont believe the director of the show will put up with their bull.

  • Ok

    Greedy bitch send her back to telemundo

  • Just so

    Fire them all and get a new cast.

    I would send a message to them and to all of the greedy actors, especially in the current economic climate – Cancel the series. Write a new series and cast actors who will appreciate the fact that they actually have a job.

    I can’t believe they’re suing because they want a higher pay. Honestly, why are celebrities paid so much? It’s not like their jobs are that challenging. -______-

    I think they feel the show generates a lot of revenue for the network and they want a share.

    I don’t begrudge them that, but it would be nice if all parties involved thought about the fans that have made the show successful. If the fans go it really doesn’t matter how much money you are paid. If nobody is watching. Then the money is gone. Find a way to make this work. Outside the show they are not that big a deal. And Sofia has all those endorsement deals because of the show. She is making a lot of money. None of them are broke.

  • Reese

    Sofia was just named the highest paid TV actress and she still wants more!

  • Ange

    It was a great show, until the adults became greedy.

  • Nymeria

    Almost same thing happened on “Friends”, all of the actors asked for the same very very high salaries, and they got what they wanted and got praises for it.
    Maybe because of the current economy what they are doing is a sin, but otherwise, not, they are working as a team.

  • Paul

    Greedy grasping Colombian taking advantage like the drug cartels.

  • Shannon

    Last I heard they made $60,000/episode and it takes only 1 week to film an episode LOL I make half that in an entire year working full time teaching preschoolers. Can I trade them?! Now they want $150,000/episode!?!?! The show wins awards sure….but ratings are more important than awards end of the day and this show isnt syndicated either. How can they remotely justify getting paid that much? They should just be happy to get paid $60,000 for a week of “work” getting to work on a successful show. There’s thousands of out of work actors that would kill to be them right now for half of what they even earn now
