She continued that her termination was because she refused to shoot one of the episodes, she said, “I refused because the storyline resembled an incident that is in my book. I told them that I was not going to re-enact my life in a soapie.
“I refused because it is a kind of an incident that I would not want to go through again, let alone talking about it.
“I told them that they got the story from my book and there is a copyright issue involved.
“They asked another actress to act in the episode, which still hurt me.”
She had a meeting with the scriptwriters after they told her they had run out of idea, she said, “I sat there motionless. I was left dumbfounded. I left the meeting without even saying a word. I went straight home and contacted my lawyer.
“We looked at the contract which had a clause that says they can terminate your contract any time they wanted.”
