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.
