*Tracee Ellis Ross is tired of pretending she likes the show, “Reed Between the Lines.”

Ok, that’s not what she said, but she is leaving the terribly scripted so-called BET comedy. Her departure comes shortly after joining the cast of NBC’s fall pilot, “Bad Girls,” a show about women in federal prison. The show wasn’t picked up, though.

So what’s the plan?

In a statement Ross  said that, “Reed Between the Lines” was a show, “I believe in and care about,” and that there was a “chance,” that she might return at some point.

“Reed Between the Lines” will (unfortunately) continue without her.

Ross played Carla, the wife of Alex Reed (Malcolm Jamal Warner). The busy power couple attempts to manage raising three children while maintaining a loving relationship.

The second season will launch next July, but the couple will be separated as Carla moves away to Los Angeles to pursue her dream job.
