Shields Slams Lipstick Jungle Axe Rumours

BROOKE SHIELDS is baffled by claims her TV show LIPSTICK JUNGLE has been cancelled - because no-one has told her yet.
Internet reports last week (begs10Nov08) suggested the plug had been pulled on the NBC drama series, because of falling ratings.
But Shields insists she still has a job.
She tells, "It's not true. They're not breaking down the sets. We're still working. We still have more to do, so it's erroneously presented that we've been cancelled, thank God.
"Our bosses are saying, 'You're not cancelled, don't worry. We're just trying to figure out how to make this make sense'."
She adds that her bosses at NBC have been inundated with mail from fans desperate to keep the show on the air: "It's been insane. I thinking that the public outcry has been crazy, and it's kind of wonderful."
And she is hopeful the show can be saved - if viewers start watching the show when it's first aired, rather than taping it and watching it later. Shields explains, "I actually am (optimistic). I mean, we're basically No. 1 if you look at DVR. And you look at all that. So the public is watching it.
"The problem that they have is it's not the same day live. They just need to figures out how to reconcile advertisers' money because the advertisers don't want you fast forwarding commercials."
Co-star Kim Raver, meanwhile, reveals show bosses are meeting next week (begs24Nov08) to discuss its future: "I think on Monday there are emergency meetings as to what's going to go on. But I know the executives are really pushing it and believe in it."
