Jennifer Esposito - Blue Bloods Actress Jennifer Esposito Still Angry About Suspension From Work

Jennifer Esposito is struggling to get over CBS' decision to put her on a period of leave from cop drama Blue Bloods. The initial decision came in the wake of the actress’s doctor telling her she needed to ease up her work load in order to manage her Celiac’s disease, CBS taking that as a sign to suspend her without pay.

Esposito was angry about it at the time, and according to TV Line is still struggling to get her head around it in a forthcoming interview to be aired on Fox. Claiming that she simply wanted to work fewer days, Esposito said "So many things of injustice that happen in this business. It's what you sign up for…This, though, is something that is not about me, I feel. This is about a disease that people don't understand. And what went on [here], it makes me sick.";

Describing the incident that saw her collapse twice on set, she commented: "The [assistant director] came in and said, ‘I'll get the medic,' and we were like, ‘There is nothing [the medic can do], unless he can cure me of Celiac disease. This is what we've been trying to tell you.' They had to carry me into the car and bring me to the doctor, where I [was] for seven hours."

Celiac disease is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food important for staying healthy.
