All My Children Alum Kim Delaney LEAVING Army Wives?!





Say it ain't so! Deadline is reporting Kim Delaney is poised to exit Lifetime's hit drama Army Wives. According to the site, the network has just renewed the series for a seventh season and will return likely minus Delaney.

The All My Children alum's potential departure isn't a shocker, as rumors have been swirling that she would soon vacate the role as Claudia Joy Holden. Deadline also claims other actors on the series—outside of Catherine Bell—may be leaving as well. Bell recently signed a new two-year deal.

Season 7 of Army Wives is slated to air in 2013.

    No! No! No!

    Army Wives is one of the few primetime shows I watch and feel is worth my time. Kim was out several episodes at the end of the season (I refuse to repeat the rumors as to why) but I hope it works out and she stays. I want all of them to stay.

    This past season Pamela and Chase left and at the end of the season so did Roxy and Trevor. I am a realist and know that cast changes over time do happen.
    In season 7 of Knots Landing we didn’t still have Karen/Sid, Richard/Laura, Kenny/Ginger, and Val/Gary still driving all the action but I feel Claudia Joy is the “Karen Fargate” of Army Wives. I would hate to see Kim leave. I have said it before and I’ll say it again: I have loved her since she was Jenny Gardner Nelson on AMC!!!!

    And while we’re at it next season, bring back Josh Kelly as Cody for a romance with Gloria!
    And more J.R. Martinez as Marty Hernandez next season – the hottest physical therapist I’ve ever seen.

    Aww thats a shame. I think she is a talent and its clear that she has a terrible addiction that has cost her dearly over the years. praying that this time the rehab sticks and that she can kick her addiction for good.

    I really hate to hear of this as the show this past season wasn’t the same without “Claudia Joy”; I just hope that she can get the help she needs to stay well once and for all.

    So, I’m guessing some of the regulars died in the crash on the finale. :((

    I heard that can got fired from Army Wives, and I hate this. I know she will be on HBO for a mini series. I watched 30 minutes of the new Season, but I will not continue to watch. I do understand that some actor/actresses had to leave because it is a military show, but they could keep the actor/actress on but a different bases and they all could connect, just like they do when they are all overseas. By them killing off a major character off that is a NO NO. Another problem why so many new characters at one time. But what I am reading from other sites, a lot of people are upset with Kim Delaney not being on the show anymore, hopefully it will make it to Season 8 but without me.

    It was very sad to see them kill off Claudia Joy. I don’t know how the season will go as there have been a lot of cast changes but I will stay tuned.
    If you look at Season 7 of Knots Landing, there were different people on the show than in Season 1. It happens.

    Good writing and weaving the newbies in slowly and logically will keep the show going. If they turn it into Dynasty, I’m done with it.

    Kim Delaney got fired???? So that’s what happen to her! Is it because of that speech thing she messed up at some military event? Wow. I was watching Army Wife this past sunday and I tuned in and they said she was dead. I was like, WTF? Someone say out of the blue.
    Why do they have to kill her off? Couldn’t they have just sent her way like they did the Pamela and Roxy characters.

    I must say, the other actors from the original cast who played Pamela, Roxy, Denise, Joan, and Roland, didn’t give much emotional depth in their scenes when they were “mourning” Claudia Joy. Which I thought was weird because they usually “bring it”. Their expressions seem to me like, WTH. I can’t believe these writers kill of Claudia Joy, I better look for another job before they get rid of me too.
