    I thought she was good. I liked her character. I wish she would have become a regular.

    Anything to keep her out of my favorite shows and quality films. After this gets cancelled, hopefully she books the 7th lead on a CBS procedural that runs for eternity in complete obscurity.

    I agree with you both. She sucks and only gets jobs because of her last name. Next.

    This lady has got something very special and amazing opening doors for her: Her dad!
