Disney:

Demi's Show Must Go On

11/13/2010 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The producers of Demi Lovato's show on the Disney Channel have come up with a way for the show to continue while she's taking a break to deal with personal issues.

The show, "Sonny with a Chance," will focus more on the show-within-a-show called "So Random!" ... this according to Variety. "So Random!" is a music/sketch/comedy show, so expect to see more of that until Lovato can resume shooting.

A rep for the Disney Channel told Variety, "This allows her the time she needs to get well, without distraction or pressure ... Again, we extend our ongoing support to Demi and her family as she works to overcome personal issues."

As TMZ first reported, Lovato quit her international concert tour with the Jonas Brothers and admitted herself into a treatment center for "emotional and physical issues."

There is no timetable yet for Lovato's return.

I don't care what awful things Demi has done. She is getting help for her problems and that takes courage. Is there anybody out there that has not made a bad decision in their life? So why are you judging her like she is supposed to be perfect? It is people like you that put her under the pressure to be perfect. I enjoy watching her show Sonny with a chance as well as watching her in the camp rock movies(along with the Jonas Brothers), and I also enjoy listening to her music. She is a very talented girl who just needs to learn how to be true to herself.

She was working way too hard. Just broke up with the guy she thought caused the sun to raise and set. Her parent push her like a draft horse.
She needs some rest, and new parents would also help.

She's 18 and mentally unstable. I doubt Disney will wait very long for her to get well. She's already past their useful age and is out of her money-grubbing parents control. She's just too risky for them. It's a shame that the money was more important to the parents than their daughter's well-being.

I was so sad when I heard what Demi has been going through. I really really loved her music &I would've never guessed. Haters get outta here. The only thing we can do is support Demi. <3

that's why cartoons are (enter large number here) times better than these stupid sitcoms. you dont have quadrillions of fans who only like you cause your greedy parents made you do stupid @#^% on TV. ever notice that the specific music shows have the main character's name the same as the actor's? it's cause the're already planning on exploiting your image for another ten years untill your too old for them, at which point they toss you out on the street with the little education you bothered to learn and the little money your parents didn't steal from you so they could buy a huge mansion with all sorts of high tech stuff
