Hewitt’s involvement in “Ghost Whisperer” extended far beyond just being the lead actor of the show. She served as a producer for the first four seasons of the show and was promoted to executive producer for the fifth season. Additionally, Hewitt directed three episodes of the series, including the explosive 100th episode.
Her directorial debut received praise for complexity and emotional depth. By the time “Ghost Whisperer” debuted on CBS in 2005, Hewitt had already been in the entertainment industry for over a decade. She brought a wealth of experience and knowledge to the show, not only as the lead actress but also as a producer.
She Wasn’t a Fan of How “Ghost Whisperer” Ended
Hewitt wasn't completely satisfied with the way “Ghost Whisperer” came to an end. According to her, the hit TV show's writers didn't tie up loose ends properly, leaving the series finale feeling incomplete. Hewitt was disappointed with the lack of closure and felt that the show's loyal fans deserved a better farewell.
The film’s narrative itself centered around unfinished business, and so she believed that it was essential to give viewers a proper goodbye. Hewitt believed that when a show has taken people on a journey for so long, the least it can do is give them some sort of closure.
She Did Not See It Coming
Fans were disappointed when “Ghost Whisperer” was canceled, but many people don’t know that the star of the show was just as taken aback by the decision! Hewitt said she was surprised when she learned that the show was being canceled. Despite knowing that the show was nearing its end, she did not expect the cancellation to be so sudden.
In an interview, she expressed her shock and said that she had anticipated the next season to be the last, given that the show had been running for a long time. She acknowledged the challenge of keeping the audience engaged with fresh content but never thought that the show's seventh season would be the final one.
A New Man in Her Life
Even as Hewitt’s break up with Jamie Kennedy continued making headlines, the press went into a tizzy when they spotted her with Alex Beh — an actor and producer known for keeping a low profile. The couple went public with their relationship in November 2010.
During an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in January 2011, Hewitt revealed that they had been dating for seven months. The two appeared to be deeply in love at the 2011 Golden Globes. Hewitt said she loved his sense of humor. He was incredibly down to earth, and Hewitt said that falling in love with him was effortless.
The Pressures of Dating a Celebrity
Hewitt may have been excited to bring her new man to the Golden Globes, but Beh wasn’t as comfortable or familiar with the paparazzi as his famous girlfriend. Said girlfriend seemed oblivious as she continued talking to Ellen DeGeneres about how he had never experienced anything like the Globes before, being from Chicago.
Perhaps she could have taken a cue from a song an ex-boyfriend had written for her ages ago. Hewitt's excitement about their romance was short-lived. She and Beh called it quits less than a year later. The details of their breakup remain private, but fans speculate that it must have had something to do with dating a “Girl on TV.”
