It was the news that went off like an thermonuclear device around Hollywood.
Kaley Cuoco, actress who plays Penny on the hit sitcom The Big Bang Theory has announced her intention to quit the show at the end of it's current season.
It is the reason for her departure that is creating such a buzz around the 26 year-old starlet.
"I want to do stuff like all the boys do on the show, I want people to know that blondes are not all stupid. I am going to go to college and get my degree in Psychics (sic)." Cuoco announced via her twitter feed.
Johnny Galecki, Cuoco's co-star on the show had this to say to an inside source.
"I can't wait to see the back of her!" Galecki laughed. "Once I found out I was going to be working with Kaley, I got myself the top cardiologist in the country." "I mean, after she jinxed Ritter, I wasn't going to be taking any chances."
When asked about Kaleys chances of achieving her physics goals Galecki continued.
"She thought that the acronym LHC was the active ingredient in marijuana, so I wouldn't put my many houses on it!"
