Rhonda Britten: “I never received a call from NBC or Bunim-Murray regarding its fate”

Rhonda Britten, one of the life coaches on Starting Over, says that she never heard from NBC or Bunim-Murray about the show’s cancellation. In other words, she was just as in the dark as viewers.

In the blog on her Fearless Living site, as my colleague Gael noticed, Rhonda writes, “I have never received a call from NBC or Bunim-Murray regarding its fate or even discussing the possibilities. So I, just like you, had to wait…and wait…and wait. Starting Over had until June 30th to pick up my contract for another year and since they failed to do it, and I’m still living in Colorado rather than shooting the show somewhere which I would normally be doing by now, that lets me know Starting Over is not coming back.”

Over the show’s three seasons, she taped 570 episodes of the series, but says, “I don’t know when I will be on television on a regular basis again but you can be sure it is something I am open to…and working on.”

Rhonda encourages fans of the show “practice what I taught the women on Starting Over right here at the Fearless Living Institute,” and adds that the TV show “was a good support tool but it didn’t do the work for you. So begin today.”
