Rob Estes Leaves 90210

| Filed under: 90210Jennie GarthMelrose PlaceAnnaLynne McCord


First Jennie Garth leaves and now Rob Estes!

They're dropping like flies in the 90210 zip code!

A source explains Rob's exit, who played Principal Harry Wilson, saying: "The producers, the studio and Rob came to the conclusion together that his role had ran its course. There just wasn’t enough for Rob to do because the show is more about the kids."

And apparently that's where the execs are putting all their money. The source continues:

"Rob’s an expensive actor and wants to be challenged and it became increasingly clear that most of the penny lifting was going to the younger cast members of the show, who Rob adores. He’s absolutely leaving the show on good terms."

But according to another source, that's not the case.

The second source reveals:

"Rob’s not happy about it all. Basically they couldn’t agree on money and that’s all it comes down to. Rob’s an experienced actor and feels he deserves to be compensated accordingly, but the CW just want to cut costs and they want to reward all these young, hot, up and coming, and therefore cheaper, actors and actresses instead."

Hear that AnnaLynne? You're cheap!

Continuing to take a dig at the actor, source #2 says Rob really needed the money.

Maybe he can go back to his roots and get a gig on Melrose Place. They did do some necessary house cleaning not too long ago.

    Jennie Garth, Shannon Doherty, this guy, even Tori S. The exodus continues.

    Attention all you employment attorneys out there - Hollywood or no Hollywood - that's PURE age discrimination. To overcompensate and favor younger (cheaper) actors and to wedge out the expensive ones. Calling all aspiring Gloria Allreds

    cw did it to all their other shows. look at smallville. at one point, the parents where sent off or died and the only adults left were luthers. and big bad daddy luther was throw out that window by lex and it was lex and a bunch of 20 year olds. in a town of 50,000. yeah, right. at least supernatural has a cast of all ages. even though it is about the paranormal, it seems more realistic when you go into a diner and the people in there are from 16-90

    NOOOO! First Kelly and now Harry…what about Debbie? Are they gonna get a divorce on the show then? Hmm maybe Kelly and Harry will hook up and leave the show together.

    That's Hollywood for you. Kristen Stewart is probably paid higher than Meryl Streep. A successful franchise or notorious scandals of the young attracts the public more than the acting skills of the legends.

    Put him on MELROSE PLACE - the BEST show on TV!!!! It would be great to see his character back.

    I rather watch a Melrose Place with all the original actors playing their original parts. They would be fun!

    I've actually been drooling over him since Silk Stalkings. haha.

    Out with the old and in with the new. Hollyweird chews them up. Estes looks just right now for myriad character roles, which leaves the actor/actress time off to maneuver in their lives.

    That is disappointing because I liked his and Lori Laughlin's roles on the show. It may not have been full time but it was still worth the money.

    Re: Laura – LOVED SILK STALKINGS! One of my all time favorite shows!
