We’ve known for many months on end that there is a big subject of conversation floating around out there when it comes to NCIS — why did Pauley Perrette leave the show?
Since that time, we’ve done our best to avoid reporting too much on it largely because of one simple thing: What place is it for us to speculate on the subject? What good does that accomplish? Many of the stories that have been out there have come from tabloids that don’t have the best reputation. Yet, some of that changed a few days ago when Perrette posted a series of tweets discussing presumably her exit, ones in which she seemed to take the tabloids to task for posting false stories about her departure. Meanwhile, she also alleged at one point “multiple physical assaults” being tied to her departure. Once again, it’s not right to speculate, especially on a situation that is so serious.
Tonight, however, CBS Television Studios did acknowledge a “workplace concern” that took place over a year ago in a statement responding to her messages:
“Pauley Perrette had a terrific run on NCIS and we are all going to miss her. Over a year ago, Pauley came to us with a workplace concern. We took the matter seriously and worked with her to find a resolution. We are committed to a safe work environment on all our shows.”
Following this statement coming out, Perrette posted another message expressing gratitude to CBS the network and the studio for being good to her throughout her run on the show.
Do we really need any more information than this? Not really; it’s a matter that should be left up to the parties involved in order to share. They have a little more perspective on what they want the world to hear and not hear. Also, there can be so much false reporting (as evidenced by the stuff out there) that you can get drawn into a vortex of it if you are not careful. The most important thing remains that Pauley is okay, and to go along with this that NCIS and other TV sets have the safest work environments possible.
