Actress lashes out at CBS

Esposito
Yoakam
Walsh

“Blue Bloods” cast member Jennifer Esposito is blasting CBS for sidelining her from the show.

In Twitter postings, the actress has accused CBS of “absolutely shameful behavior” in putting her on unpaid leave from the Tom Selleck-starring police drama.

Esposito tweeted that she’s been diagnosed with celiac disease and requires a reduced work schedule. She said CBS believes she is angling to win a pay raise.

CBS has responded that because Esposito can’t fulfill the full-time demands of her role, it has “regretfully” put her character, Detective Jackie Curatola, on a leave of absence.

‘Practice’ to end

ABC’s “Private Practice” is shutting down.

ABC Entertainment spokeswoman Alison Rou said Monday that the “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff will be ending after 13 episodes this season, most likely in January. Series star Kate Walsh had previously announced she would be leaving after 13 episodes.

This is its sixth season on the air.

In other TV show news Monday:

•The CW picked up freshman drama “Arrow” for a full season.
