Wahlberg hopes Jennifer Esposito is 'doing good'


NEW YORK — Donnie Wahlberg hopes his “Blue Bloods” co-star Jennifer Esposito is OK, but has no idea when, or if, she’s returning to the show.

CBS suspended the actress from the Tom Selleck-starring police drama, claiming she can’t fulfill the full-time demands of the show.

Esposito responded on Twitter, saying she’s been diagnosed with celiac disease and requires a reduced work schedule.

The network has said it hopes Esposito will be able to return.

“She’s a friend and I hope she’s doing good. I love working with her,” said Wahlberg.

For the time being, her role as Wahlberg’s partner is being rotated by new characters played by Megan Ketch and Megan Goode.
