On Monday evening, the world lost a great person in Penny Marshall who died at the age of 75. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, her cause of death was already determined and it was due to complications from diabetes. As the world mourns her loss, many celebrities and friends have expressed their grief and how much they will miss her. But what about her former co-star on Laverne & Shirley Cindy Williams? Were the two really estranged and feuding since the show?
For eight years, the series ruled the airwaves along with Happy Days of which Laverne & Shirley was a spin-off. The final season in 1983, though, was quite different as one big part of it was missing. Laverne was there and so was Squiggy, Lenny, Carmine, Frank, and many others.
But there was no Shirley.
In an interview with Today back in 2015, Cindy Williams revealed the true reason she was not around for the final season of Laverne & Shirley. She got married, became pregnant, and she expected to return and have them hide her baby bump "behind benches, couches, pillows, but that wasn't it."
As she was ready to sign her contract for the final season, the studio had her working on her due date. She told him, "You know, I can't sign this." It went back and forth for a while, but it never ended up working out and she had to leave.
