Brooke Shields Confirms Lipstick Jungle Isn't Cancelled

by at . Comments

Despite rumors and supposed confirmed cancellations of Lipstick Jungle, Brooke Shields tells reporters that Lipstick Jungle is not canceled and it's just a misunderstanding.

According to Shields, "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. 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."

Brooke continued, "Our bosses are saying, 'You’re not canceled, don’t worry. We’re just trying to figure out how to make this make sense.'"

Thanks to an idea by the writers of the show, fans have been sending in lipstick tubes to the president of NBC.  Shields and crew have apparently noticed.

"It's been insane.  I think that the public outcry has been crazy, and it's kind of wonderful."

But what about the future of Lipstick, is Brooke still optimistic?

"I actually am," Shields said. "I mean, we're basically No. 1 if you look at DVR. And you look at all that. So the public is watching it. The problem that they have is it's not the same day live," she continued. "They just need to figure out how to reconcile advertisers' money because the advertisers don't want you fast forwarding commercials."

But if it gets cancelled Brooke will be heartbroken because, "The family atmosphere and the excitement of being all together and working -- that’s the perk. I think they would be remiss if they decided not to continue next season."

Kim Raver definitely confirms that feeling.  She would take the cancellation "really hard.  The main thing is that me and Brooke and Lindsay have such a great time, not to sound corny."

She finished by saying "I think on Monday there are emergency meetings as to what's going to go on. But I know the executives are really pushing it and believe in it."

It is December 2011 and I still miss the amazing show Lipstick Jungle. It really sucks that this show was cancelled. It was a big hit and the story lines were exquisit. The writers were awesome. Get together with a new network and start writing new stories. This was a great sitcom gone for reasons unknown.

This show is something that I and clearly others look forward to seeing on a weekly basis. The time slot of 10pm or later is in all probability why this show gets recorded and then watched later at another day and hour. Again, it isn't to be missed either live or recorded! Personally, I think that this show appeals to women creating a future for ourselves. We make up 60% of enrollement on our college campuses and these women on this show have clearly worked hard to get to the level of achievement that we all wish for ourselves and an example of the friendships we desire as a support system for our lives in general. Please, be sure and consider all that this show has to offer our youth, our future and our goals as a country in general. This show is a wonderful inspiration to all of us.

This shd ow is great, it is such a breathe of fresh air in comparison to all of the reality crap that is currently playing. I think NBC's biggest mistake was moving it from Thursdays last Spring to Wendesday and then Friday. The 8 pm time stot does improve it, but come on NBC give it a chance. I have watched all of the episodes in primetime (both season 1 and 2.) It deserves the shot.

I for one download from your site any episodes I miss due to my schedule....All advertising is still there and I even got some xmas ideas from it....keep track of downloads from your site, busy women catch up on episodes they miss this way and still see advertising. Its the 21st century, we need these options and shows should get credit for this. I have one other show I routinely download to watch because I can't always catch it at the time its on. This should be factored into ratings process.
