Retta Upset Over Good Girls Cancellation

Retta, known for her role as Ruby Hill on Good Girls, recently disclosed that the show came close to being renewed for a fifth season. However, due to issues caused by “one person,” the renewal fell through, causing disappointment among the cast and crew. 

While Retta didn’t mention the individual by name, there were reports suggesting that Manny Montana, who portrayed the popular character Rio, had contract disputes with the producers. Retta expressed her frustration during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Ryan, stating how bothered she was about the situation. 

Kelly Ripa empathized with Retta’s sentiments and wondered why they couldn’t replace the problematic actor with someone else. Retta explained that it was too late in the scripting process to make such changes.


Good Girls revolved around three suburban mothers who resorted to a life of crime as a means to solve their problems. Unfortunately, much to the fans’ disappointment, the show was abruptly canceled after four seasons. Many were left curious about what could have unfolded in future seasons. 

Retta, one of the show’s main stars, revealed that the cancellation stemmed from a conflict with one of the actors who faced contractual issues with the producers. Ultimately, without finding a suitable replacement and crafting an enticing storyline for season 5, the fate of Good Girls was sealed.
