Chelsea Handler Sitcom Axes Three Cast Members

by at . Comments

Three stars have been fired by producers of the semi-autobiographical NBC sitcom based on Chelsea Handler's book Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea.

White Collar alum Natalie Morales, former ER star Angel Laketa Moore, and Chelsea Lately staple Jo Koy were cut by Vodka "for creative reasons."

That 70's Show's Laura Prepon is staying put as the star, playing a young Chelsea Handler in the sitcom, which is slated to premiere mid-season.

NBC already released a trailer with the now-cut cast-members in it. That's awkward, but these things do happen somewhat frequently before shows air.

Handler has yet to make any obnoxious, irreverent comments about the casting moves, or how she really likes to drink, but just give it a few hours.

I think they should've cast Kristin Cavellari as a young Chelsea, she looks so much like her and has a sassiness to her just like the real thing :)
