‘Beautiful Life’ Star Shocked By Show Cancellation

The CW network’s ‘The Beautiful Life’ has become the first television series from the new fall crop to be canceled, after just two episodes of the drama aired. Actress Sara Paxton has responded to the bad news in an interview with Latina, calling the early axe “unfair.” She says, “The CW didn’t give our show a chance to succeed or fail. We had some amazing episodes coming up that we were all proud of… we’re sad that no one will ever even see those.”

The actress says that the news came as a total shock – and she’s not pleased with how the ‘Beautiful Life’ cast was notified of their sudden unemployment. “I was sitting in the hair and makeup chair, and I’m getting my hair done just like a normal Friday-we were all excited for Friday,” Paxton says. “And all of a sudden, they got the call, and the producers had to make an announcement on set that we were done-that we were over! And I was sitting there in shock. I couldn’t believe that in the middle of work, the rug was pulled out beneath our feet.”

The news that the CW won’t air the final five episodes – episodes that were already filmed and complete – is “a slap in the face.” Paxton says, “It’s almost like we were part of this family and now suddenly we’re dropped. I couldn’t even call the CW because they probably have my number on their caller ID and they’re like, ‘no don’t pick up, don’t pick up.’ It’s crazy.”

She adds, “It’s hard because I don’t want to sound ungrateful for everything they have done for us, but I think especially since this happened Friday-it’s really hard for me not to be angry. I really don’t want to upset [CW President] Dawn Ostroff, because she is a really cool lady. I just don’t understand how they could do this.”
