Emmy Rossum is Leaving Shameless

The news is true. Emmy Rossum (AKA Fiona) is leaving "Shameless."

Emmy announced on her Twitter that she is leaving the show for good and will not be returning for Season 8, which starts filming next month. Her reasoning behind leaving the show was "starting the next chapter in her life," though it's been speculated that it may be because she wasn't getting paid as much as her co-star and TV father William H. Macy.

"Shameless" will not be the same without Fiona Gallagher. She's been on the show for 8 years. The producers have promised a good-bye for Emmy's character, that is definitely "Shameless" worthy. 

Good-luck to Emmy and all her future endeavors, but let's just hope her absence doesn't make the show go downhill.
