She will never pull off playing Nina, only Michelle Stafford could do that!— Patty Setford A.K.A. Patty Setford (@PattySetford) April 11, 2019
What!!! It just wouldn’t be the same— David Fountain (@BigRedneck01) April 11, 2019
They really didn’t need to recast Nina either. Just have her leave as they did with Griffin— Lisa A Carlile (@LisaACarlile1) April 11, 2019
Sorry you are leaving, Michelle. You are really fun to watch. I used to listen to your podcast too and enjoyed that.— JWFrancesca (@bymarsam) April 11, 2019
Literally no one asked for this. In fact, I distinctly recall many fans being happy that MS's departure would mean no more Nina. But here we are, @valentinifrank once again demonstrating he has ZERO desire to cater to the actual fans. Just to his own ego.— holly_golightly (@hollyglightly00) April 11, 2019
