It appears that Kate has been bumped from the show because of Heath Ledger up and dying.
How quickly the news moves these days.
Edited by Kate to add: Y’all, clearly, the death of a 28-year-old who had a young child is a tragedy, and all of us at Shapely Prose are sorry for Ledger’s family. But not everyone feels deeply affected by news of celebrity deaths. Fillyjonk didn’t feel that way, she was upset about me being bumped, and she was also posting in the middle of a busy work day because I was out and texted her with a request that she update the blog a.s.a.p. So I really don’t want to hear any more discussion of her supposed callousness.
