You're not taking the Daily Mail at their word, are you?
As far as I know they are the only ones saying that she (and JB) were 'axed', and they are clearly wrong about JB - in fact, they were the first to report his stint on Desperate Housewives in March/April, so that reads as deliberately misleading to me.
I doubt very much that Denise - who is a sensible woman - wanted to have work commitments right up to her due date, which is what being on the show would have meant. This is just the Daily Fail looking for a way to bash the BBC again.
So why is she not denying it then? If it was not true she would have denied it. By not saying anything there is always the implication that it could be true. The Guardian also picked up this story. http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2010/feb/1...n-bbc-pregnancy
Lloyd Webber said: "Each member of the panel brings something new and exciting which will take Over the Rainbow even further than the previous shows. We have a fantastic wealth of talent within our judges, and I know they're going to be bringing some incredibly valuable expertise and opinions in our search for Dorothy."
It sounds like The Lord just really wanted a new team of judges and is happy with the new line-up. He has given her job opportunities in the past and I thought he was a friend of hers. I can't see why DVO is kicking off and stabbing him in the back by trying to blame her job loss on her pregnancy.
