Kaley Cuoco has been starting a lot of negative buzz about herself lately. The latest I have seen is that she is “supposedly” jealous of Melissa Rauch’s increased air time and presence in the story line. But I find there is a lack of evidence and people are just trying to stir the pot. If anything, Cuoco is causing a stir with contract deals, but that’s about it. Though I could be wrong. What do you guys think?
Long time TBBT fans are worried after learning that neither the show runners nor CBS have guaranteed The Big Bang Theory is going to return for the next season.
This is because contract negotiations are going on for all the key cast members of the show. The network wants to make sure that their revised salaries do not exceed the budget that it has allotted to the production.
However, the main cast members Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, and Kaley Cuoco already make $1 million dollars each, per episode. With Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg are right behind with $900,000 payday each.
A salary hike would most probably not be the issue for any of the cast members to back out of their existing contracts. But there is one TBBT star in particular who has suggested that Season 10 might be the end of the road for the show.
Kaley Cuoco, reports TV Series Finale, has dropped hints now and again that it might be the final curtain soon for The Big Bang Theory. But is she speaking of the show in general or just the character that she plays on the show, Penny?
Melissa Rauch, who plays Helberg’s onscreen wife Bernadette, has received quite the praise for the development of her character on the show. I have praised her many times myself.
The squeaky-voiced actress might have started out in a minor role, but now is pregnant with Howard’s baby. Bernadette is being given almost as much screen space as Penny. Is that making Kaley Cuoco insecure and jealous?
People are definitely loving Bernadette more than Penny, given that the former’s mood swings and soon-to-be-mom attitude are fun to watch, reports Glamour. But this could be a matter of opinion.
What Readers are Saying
Besides, when Morning News USA reported that The Big Bang Theory might have to continue without the presence of Penny in its future seasons, the readers reacted:
“The show makes them a double ton of money. They would be insane to cancel it because one actress gets the big head and prices herself out of the show. She could easily have a fatal pregnancy or something and be written out. She isn’t nearly as good the last few years as she was in the beginning,” wrote Arizona Willie.
“Way to wreck the show Kaley! But, from what I have been hearing about her personal life, she is not one to care much about consequences of her actions. Maybe she thinks she could get better offers elsewhere but from my perspective, it’s the writers that make the show, not her,” wrote Brians000.
