Yeah, I agree. TWC isn't the same with all the new replacements.  :thumbdown:

According to Rich Johnson on his forums, Alex apparently wanted to go part time and NBC wouldn't allow that.

I wonder how Rich Johnson would know anything about this (unless all laid-off OCMs keep in contact with each other or something like that). :unsure:

And she got fired/laid off for that?!

Why would that lead to a legal issue? If she wants to go part time she has the right to do that.

Why is that so hard to believe?  I'm still in contact with people I haven't seen since high school graduation more than a decade ago!

Rich stays in contact with some of the OCMs, mainly Mike Sidel.

Not necessarily. Changing your availability in some professions is cause for termination, especially in the television industry.

Tyler is correct.

I am thinking that Alexandra asked to go part-time and when NBC said no, Alexandra probably decided to leave, which would cause legal problems because she violated her contract.

I wonder why she wanted to step down.  :thinking:

but yes, indeed...what Kyle mentioned could very well be the legal issue that we had previously heard about.

edit: and if this is the case, then Alexandra was not "let go", this topic name may need to be changed.

When you have a contract you don't have rights. You don't agree to paint a whole house then decide that you will just paint 50% of it.

Yes this is also what I was informed of. But my friend couldn't confirm it. As rich mentioned they are being particularly tight lipped on this one.

I imagine it went something like this. Alex wanted to go part time, TWC said no leading to a possible legal battle. You will note TWC employees were explicatively told not to take down her profiles while this was going on.  Leading me to believe TWC intended to make her stay. I would imagine they reached an agreement and settled out of court and Alex ended up getting the boot completely. That would be my best guess on the situation based on the information available.

Alex does has a family. I don't know the age of her child (children?) but I imagine she wants to spend more time with them. With her current schedule she only sees her kids up until around 2pm. If her kids are going to some sort of schooling that means she only sees them until around 8am each weekday. By the time Alex arrives home most likely they are sleeping. Just a thought.

Let go seems to fit. She wanted to work less... TWC no and said bye bye. Some folks objected to the word fired and saying she left doesn't fit the information in my opinion

I understand completely what u are saying.
And if you want to know, Alexandra has a two year old daughter.

I hope Alexandras husband has a good job. I hate that Alex got fired just because she wanted to go part time! :hammer:

Actually, he had his own business.
If you want to know how I know this, it's because of the Internet here.
Also, I hate the fact that that happened as well. TWC is just a bunch of crooked people, and that's a fact.
