There's been a trio of moves on Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea, the upcoming sitcom based on the life/memoir of comedian Chelsea Handler.
According to various reports, the following three cast members have been dropped:

It's unclear if the characters these actors portrayed on the pilot will remain.
