She's almost the Sarah Bernhardt of martydom.  GLAAD REPORTS

Really big argument between Laura and the exec's from Paramount occurred right in front of the studio guests. Laura stormed off the set and wasn't seen again. About two hours later the producers for the show called all the staff together and said they were suspending operations until further notice." (Source: Usenet)
