The show may have garnered some mixed reviews and a little controversy since it was aired but fans of Netflix's Wolf of Wallstreet meets Gossip Girl series - Girlboss, took to their social media accounts to mourn the announcement that the 13-part show has been officially cancelled this week. The inspiration behind the story, Sophia Amoruso, has expressed the opposite sentiment to many of her shocked fans, relaying that she was pleased with the cancellation and felt some sense of 'relief' that her story would no longer be played out on screen. 

Taking to her Instagram to express her feelings, the former Nasty Gal CEO wrote, "While I'm proud of the work we did, I'm looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out." Continuing; "It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what's happened in the last few years."

Focusing more on her business school and community platform in recent months, also called Girlboss, Amoruso sold the rights to the TV series when she was still CEO of Nasty Gal, a business which once had a value of $200 million, before being fired during the company's restructuring and ultimate sale to UK company boohoo for one tenth of its original value - all of which garnered a fair amount of negative press and may have contributed to the show's ultimate demise. 

 

Fans can still step into Sophia's world off-screen via www.girlboss.com and with the launch of her new workbook dedicated to helping women create a business from the ground up - we're sure we haven't seen the last of her yet.
