I'm a long time fan of Sela Ward since her days on TV's Sisters. I also loved her as the romantic interest of Dr. Gregory House on House a few seasons back. I think she's a great actress and beautiful. I only wish she had Melina Kanakaredes' explosion of natural curls and ringlets which she primarily wears natural.
It's not news that Melina and CBS had a parting of the ways over her contract. The word is that she was asked to take a pay cut, she refused and now she's off the series. Of course there's two sides to every story and we may never know what really transpired between the popular actress and the eye network. But CBS has been busy cleaning house across the board.

I love the writing and acting on CSI: NY and have been watching it since episode one over six years ago. It's sad Melina is leaving after six years. She always brought an edge to her role as Detective Stella Bonasera. She was fierce, tough and played well against the rest of the cast. I won't just miss her natural ringlets, I'll miss her intensity and sass in the role she created for CSI: NY.
Meanwhile, although Melina and CBS both made nice with formal statements, it appears that the actress won't be appearing to wrap up her six seasons on the show. In fact, her exit was explained briefly in the first episode of the new season tonight with a short letter regarding her "new position" down South.
Ironically there's other news about the New York version of CSI. It has moved to a new time slot which is Friday at 9 pm ET.
Will Melina surface again? Count on it. The Bottecelli tressed actress starred for five seasons on NBC's Providence and was fabulous on NYPD Blue and The Practice. I'm sure we'll see her talented performances again soon.
