I hate to be the bearer of bad news here, but fan favorites Martha Madison
(Belle) and Brandon Beemer
(Shawn) have been let go and will finish wrapping up their storylines in a few weeks. No official final airdate at this time has been set. Martha Madison confirmed it on her website message board
today, January 21. Many fans, including myself, are in complete shock over this decision, especially since they are such an integral part of the show and part of the Philip/Chloe mix. Martha recently signed a new contract with the show for two more years, but as we all know by now, contracts don't mean a thing anymore. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
