No, but it was probably what the rest of us thought: Pepper became too squelched, too hookered, and too frequently rescued.
I couldn't agree more. I've always been a fan of hers and wondered why she didn't get cast as the lead in a series; she certainly appeared in her share of made for TV movies. According to Wikipedia she retired in the early 90s.Tangent: Joanna Pettet is another of those actresses who should have been a household name as a lead in a TV series, but it never really happened for her (or maybe she didn’t want it). But I always thought she was beautiful with charisma to spare.
Angie did say at one point that the difficult thing about doing a long-running show is that you "stop focusing on character, and in just getting it physically done," and having to face "another lousy script."
