  • Notes

    • There is much speculation about why and how Wendi-McClendon Covey, Carlos Alazraqui and Mary Birdsong left the show. This was posted on Wendi's myspace page:

      Hi everyone!
      Recently I've been asked the same questions over and over, so I thought I'd better just address the subject here so I don't have to keep writing individual messages about it.
      No, I'm not on Reno 911 anymore. No, I didn't leave on my own. No, I didn't see it coming. No, I wasn't the only one who was dismissed. No, it wasn't because we weren't doing a good job - in this business you don't necessarily get hired because you're good, and you don't necessarily get let go because you're bad.
      Yes, I was on the set of The Office when I found out.
      Yes, I was disappointed at first, but as Sophia Loren used to say, "Don't cry over anything that won't cry over you." Five seasons and a movie was a good run, and I'm surprised that it lasted that long. I'm grateful to have been a part of the show but believe me, it was really time to move on and play other types of weird women - maybe someone who wears a turtleneck!
      We wrapped season 5 in April of 2007, so I've been away from the show for 2 years. It's a distant, bittersweet memory now.
      So thanks to all of you for liking my character! Thanks for being so sweet to me.
      xoxoxoxox, Wendi
