This just occurred to me
How was Farrah able to leave after only 1 year? Wouldn't she have signed a contract?

Regardless, she wasn't the bitter ex-Angel anyway. I believe that was Kate Jackson. Something about not being able to do the movie Kramer vs. Kramer because she was still on CA. (don't have many details here)

I was under the impression that she broke her contract, and that they settled by having her appear in several episodes each year for a year or two afterward.

Yep that's true. And whenever she did appear ABC really promoted it. They were lucky. Cheryl Ladd was a great replacement although Farrah is still my favorite Angel.

I was about to come here and say that among the Charlie's Angels stars, Kate Jackson seems to be the most bitter. She was trapped in her TV contract when Hollywood came knocking. As a direct consequence, Jackson lost out on a potentially Oscar winning role (in this case, Meryl Streep's part in Kramer vs. Kramer). Jackson's ex-husband, Andrew Stevens, also backed up his pickup truck to her bank account around that time as well. There were also rumors that Jackson didn't get along with Farrah Fawcett's replacement, Cheryl Ladd and would only speak to or acknowledge her when the situation really called for it.

Larry's brother Daryl and his other brother Daryl- they didn't speak to anyone until the series finale.

After doing some reading, you can add Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I'm not going to give them flack for not wanting anything to do with Full House (since their parents pretty much sold them out when they were still literally babies) or show business in general anymore. But they none the less, always come across as so sour, creepy (to be brutally honest, they always look like old scary witches), superficial/vapid, jaded and run down looking. They're always extremely private (but on on the same token, apparently have huge daddy issues and their smoking habits care clearly signs of stress/anxiety) and the only time they show themselves in public (media) is when they're promoting something (business related).

Farrah Fawcett is one celebrity for whom it's quite easy to feel sorry for when you get right down to it. She had overnight fame, but really non of the success after Charlie's Angels, except maybe the Burning Bed. And then she a horrible personal life with an abusive Ryan O'Neal. Plus, her son landed in prison jail and she ultimately died a horrible death from anal cancer. To add insult to injury, she died the same day as Micheal Jackson yet he got all the medial attention (whereas there was hardly a peep about her in the media).

Jimmie Walker you'd figure should've been bitter about his stand up comic career getting sidelined by playing JJ on Good Times and never really having the success as the Jackson's did.

And yet he really wasn't bitter, was he?

No surprisingly but then just like Adam West George Lindsey and Bob Denver he learned to embrace the character that made him a household name and like Don Knotts and Don Adams moved away with success.

15 TV Stars Who Hated Their Own Shows

Between feuds with co-stars, fights with producers, and lack of faith in the material, actors often donít have fond feelings about their own TV shows.
