    WTF?!!! why????

  • Alaia


  • Paulie

    Prepon doesn’t like the lesbionic attention. That’s the rumor.

  • Sophia

    Oops, her scientology friends didn’t like the lesbian content too much huh? Or she got greedy for more money but failed at providing a compelling argument.

  • Dani

    I call bullish*t on this one. No one is confirming it and she just was quoted for second season saying “you don’t fix whats not broken”. im thinking its rumor mill…..

  • Kristy

    This is devastating news! I’ve watched the entire first season of this show in a span of 2 days and i’m obsessed! I hope they make up for her departure with some epic plot lines


    @Sophia most religions dont likes lesbians

  • Adriana

    Netflix denied.

  • araT


    This. 100%. I call ‘False’ until Netflix/JK/Prepon confirm it.

  • greckos

    who cares? it’s a chick show – chick shows blow. why don’t you people watch an actual good TV show like breaking bad.

  • ethel

    oh NO I love Alex! hope it’s not true…

  • Amy

    @greckos: sexist ass.

  • Dack Uliy

    Good grief! Hold everything. That big dike makes the whole show. Uggg.

  • Leni

    I like the show, but she’s not my favourite part of it. I doubt it’s because she doesn’t like the “lesbian attention”, since she filmed multiple gay sex scenes… she doesn’t strike me as an idiot.

  • Pinci

    that’s a lose for the show

  • Isabella

    Seams its true. It’s sad, because Alex is amazing, Laura Prepon is hot, and the romance between piper and alex seams so real. everybody is in love with both. It’s a huge lose. It’s sad as well, because it’s clear shes leaving because of her religion. sucks. hope this time they get someone who doesnt have a problem with that. Laura leaviing because of the “lesbian attention” is a huge frustration for the gay community.

    Alex is the most interesting and passionate. All is lost.
