"If you watch her in scenes, she is clearly at the bottom of the acting pact of the show."

I don't know if you've read Rue's autobiography, but in it, she is very clear about how difficult it was for everyone to work around Estelle's problems with performing. Her final comment about the issue was "With the use of cue cards and a lot of creative editing, we somehow pulled it off, but it was very challenging." And she adored Estelle. Spoke highly of her as a friend. She was just describing how disruptive it was to work around her fear/memory problem/insecurities, whatever the real issue/issues might have been.
