Actress and supermodel Brooke Shields finally gives her statement regarding the previous speculation about "Lipstick Jungle" to be axed by NBC's network. The actress who played the main character of the dramedy series as Wendy Healy, denies the series' cancellation on November 16 at Sunday's Kidsfest in NYC.

Of it, Shields gives her comment stating, "They thought that because 'My Own Worst Enemy' has been shut down that the same thing had happened to us, and its not true." She emphasizes, "They're not breaking down the sets. We're still working. We still have more to do, so it's erroneously presented that we've been canceled, thank God."

Shields believes that the series will have more run, informing that "Lipstick Jungle" bosses have made that clear. She says, "Our bosses are saying, 'You're not canceled, don't worry. We're just trying to figure out how to make this make sense'." Then she adds, "It's been insane. I think that the public outcry has been crazy, and it's kind of wonderful. I mean, we're basically No.1 if you look at DVR. And you look at all that. So the public is watching it."

In the meantime, there is no official confirmation from the network regarding "Lipstick Jungle" future. As a reminder, on November 12, NBC network has been reported making a decision to shut down its new drama series starring Christian Slater, "My Own Worst Enemy", and second season run dramedy starring Brooke Shields, "Lipstick Jungle". The termination is believed to have something to do with the series' poor ratings.

Look how slow Sex and the City took to take off an to become a standard office/ home conversation piece. Here you have great actors and a since of real life situations. Really rethink this, I mean what's not to like? Hot women, Good writing. It would be very missed here. Lisa from Alabama, USA
