“Taylor wasn’t on set filming much this season, but when she did show up she wasn’t very level-headed,” explains our insider. “The show’s executives didn’t trust that she was really giving it her all, so they dismissed her as a regular.”
This isn’t the first time Taylor’s been accused of bad behavior; Little J’s storyline was reduced on the show because of it. Jenny Humphrey started out as a good girl in the series but her downward spiral mimicked Taylor’s real life persona, which began consisting of dark makeup, shocking statements to the press and a high-profile flashing incident.
Taylor is now focusing on her music career as the lead singer in her band Pretty Reckless, and although Jenny Humphrey fans may be disappointed, they certainly won’t be surprised by her demotion from series regular to guest star.
