Donnie Wahlberg hopes Jennifer Esposito is 'doing good'

This image released by CBS shows actress Jennifer Esposito, center, with co-star Donnie Wahlberg, in a scene from "Blue Bloods." Esposito is blasting CBS for sidelining her from the show. In Twitter postings, the actress has accused CBS of "absolutely shameful behavior" in putting her on unpaid leave from the Tom Selleck-starring police drama. Esposito tweeted that she's been diagnosed with celiac disease and requires a reduced work schedule. CBS has responded that because Esposito can’t fulfill the full-time demands of her role, it has “regretfully” put her character, Detective Jackie Curatola, on a leave of absence. Her last appearance for now airs Nov. 2. The network says it hopes Esposito will be able to return. (Associated Press file photo)

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 police drama, claiming she can't fulfill the full-time demands of the show. Esposito fired back over Twitter accusing the network of "absolutely shameful behavior."

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

When asked about the change, the actor deflected the question.

"Danny Reagan gets around. He likes girls a lot."

Wahlberg made the comments on the red carpet of the International Emmy Awards.

He said of Esposito: "She's a friend and I hope she's doing good. I love working with her, so we'll see what happens."
