The Gilmore Girls are back and coming to Netflix‘s and they are having a reunion. Wait a reunion minus one BIG star. Melissa McCarthy got her start as Sookie, best friend to Lorelai. However, they are best friends no more as Melissa was not even invited to the party.
Amy Sherman-Palladino, creator of the show left out Sookie on purpose.
“She’s really f–ing busy, but the thing I have said [to her team] is, ‘Look, if Melissa is available and has an afternoon free, I’ll write her a scene. Melissa was one of us. If she has a spare moment to run over [to the set] — even if for just a cameo — we would be totally game. And if it’s a last-minute thing, I would write her in and we would figure it out. That’s the way we left it.”
We get her reseaning, but even though she is a superstar, why not ask her if she would like to be a part of the cast in any form. Why the snub? At least ask if she would like to make a cameo.
