Melissa McCarthy just re-broke our hearts with her latest statement about the "Gilmore Girls" reboot
As excited as we are about the Gilmore Girls Netflix reboot (waaaay excited), we can’t help but feel a little brokenhearted over the news that Melissa McCarthy won’t be part of the show. Even worse, McCarthy explained last month that she wasn’t even invited back to Stars Hollow. TBH, we’re still having a hard time wrapping our heads around this decision. I mean, what are the good people of Stars Hollow going to eat on the new show? Sookie is one of the only people in that town who knows how to cook. Lorelai and Rory can’t live on coffee alone. Just saying.
In a new interview with Refinery29, McCarthy is once again addressing her absence on the new version of our fave show. Believe it or not, the situation has somehow gotten even more depressing. When asked if maybe things would work out and we’d at least get a tiny glimpse of Sookie in the reboot, McCarthy said, “It’s not. They didn’t ask. And once this came out, because people were starting to say, ‘Oh, you won’t do it. You’re too big and busy now.’ I was like, ‘No. No one invited me to the party. I didn’t get a single call.’ And then after that, it was kind of, ‘Well, she’d like to do it, you guys can call us.’ I have to call and ask? And now I can’t make it happen. I thought it was the strangest thing. I am really proud of that show. I can’t wait for my kids to see it.”
So basically, even after McCarthy publicly said she would be interested in being a part of the show, no one called. Ugh.
How is this even possible?
Our hearts are breaking all over again. We’re actually having a hard time expressing how we feel about this. Perhaps Sookie herself says it best…
We’re smad, guys. Really, really smad.
