Goodbye, Dr. Cuddy: Lisa Edelstein leaves ‘House M.D.’ after seven seasons

Dr. Cuddy will no longer be treating patients.

That’s because actress Lisa Edelstein, who has been starring in ‘House M.D.’ for the past seven season, will not be returning to the FOX medical drama next fall.

“After much consideration, I am moving onward with a combination of disappointment at leaving behind a character I have loved playing for seven years and excitement of the new opportunities in acting and producing that lie ahead,” Edelstein, 44, tells TV Line in a statement.

Just last week, Edelstein’s costars Robert Sean Leonardand Omar Epps renewed their contracts. They will appear alongside Hugh LaurieOlivia Wilde and Peter Jacobson.

The only recurring cast member who has yet to renew his contract is Jesse Spencer, 32, who has played Dr. Robert Chase since the series began.

House: Lisa Edelstein is not pregnant!

Lisa Edelstein

Way to get our hopes up, Star magazine! The outlet reported this morning (in a story that’s since been taken down) that Lisa Edelstein (Dr. Lisa Cuddy on Fox’s House) is pregnant. This got us unreasonably excited, because if Lisa is pregnant, that means the writers very well might make Cuddy pregnant.

But alas, Lisa’s rep told me that Star’s report is not true and that Lisa Edelstein is not pregnant. According to her publicist, “Perhaps she’ll be pregnant one of these days, but not yet. Not sure where the rumor began, but it’s not true.”

My dreams of House being Cuddy’s sperm donor are once again cruelly dashed. Edelstein told us earlier this year: “There is a parallel between myself and Dr. Cuddy, only because of my age as an actress and the timing of the show. When the show started, I told the producers that at some point during the run of the show, if it was successful, that I was going to get pregnant one way or another. So they planted that seed in the character’s story so it would be possible for me as a woman to experience that.”

We do know that this season on House, Cuddy will be canoodling with the new private investigator character, and there are persistent rumors that Dr. Allison Cameron will be pregnant this year.

House’s star Lisa Edelstein is pregnant!


Lisa Edelstein is bursting with happiness as she’s expecting her first baby.

The House star, 41, has been telling friends she’s having a baby with her artist boyfriend Giammario Villa.

“Lisa is thrilled beyond belief that she’s having a baby,” says an insider. “She really didn’t know if she was ever going to have a baby because she hadn’t met the right guy, but then along came Giammario earlier this year to sweep her off her feet. She’s finally at the right stage in her life and dating the right guy. Things just couldn’t be any better!”

Lisa is so excited she couldn’t contain herself at Studio A Dance in Studio City earlier this week where she and Giammario were taking a yoga class together.

“Lisa was telling everyone about her good news,” says an insider. “She looks radiant and you can tell it’s from all the happiness inside her.”

In an interesting twist, Lisa’s House character, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, has been struggling to get pregnant through in-vitro fertilization.
