The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco is allegedly being resented on the show’s set because of her fat paycheck and for grabbing the limelight for the wrong reasons.
Report indicated that the actress is getting too much media attention because of her high-profile divorce from husband, tennis player Ryan Sweeting. In addition, Cuoco has been in the headlines lately because of her new romance with Karl Cook. Apparently, her Big Bang Theory co-stars are not backing her on this one.
“It used to be Kaley and Johnny [Galecki] versus Jim [Parsons], but now it’s kind of everybody versus Kaley,” Radar Online cited an insider saying.
In addition, there is also the issue of paycheck. The site source noted that Cuoco had only six lines in a The Big Bang Theory episode last year, which was aired the same week the actress landed in the cover of a famous magazine. The actress is currently receiving $1 million per episode along with Parson and Galecki. Other cast members such as Melissa Rauch and Mayam Bialik are only paid $100,000 per episode.
