Kim Kardashian commented on Instagram, “Wait!!! WHAT???? I’m NOT OK. How can this be?” Stassi Schroder the former Vanderpump Rules star commented on Us Weekly’s Instagram post “I’m not well.” Dionne Warwick tweeted “No, @regejean! You CANNOT leave me like that. I WILL NOT have it.” And the singer Jana Kramer wrote on Instagram “This is not ok.”
There was one celebrity though who sort of agreed with Page’s exit, John Oliver. On Last Week Tonight on Sunday, April 4th he said, “His character’s arc is mostly wrapped up and he does not appear in the rest of the novels. It’s really a generational story of the whole family. And also, you could absolutely lose the Duke. It is actually perfectly in his character to start something he doesn’t finish.”
This exit from Page due to his arc ending makes sense but also is a bit devastating. It also leads us to wonder, will this push other castmates to leave later on as their arcs end as well, or will they stay written in somehow due to fans’ emotional attachments?
