She also tells the committee to grant Dwight an interview, saying she likes "a little bit of crazy." In the eighth-season premiere, "The List", Jim recounts to the camera crew how Robert California was hired as branch Manager over the summer, but immediately quit, drove all the way to Sabre headquarters in Florida, and then convinced Jo to give him her position as the company's CEO (in reality, Bates left The Office due to her commitment to Harry's Law).

However, Jo remains as chairman of the board, and Robert still refers to Jo as his boss.

She appears in "Search Committee" and reveals that she is old friends with one of the applicants for the manager job, Nellie Bertram.

Jo further plans to liquidate all of Sabre's assets, thereby effectively permanently dissolving the company.

Cathy Simms (Lindsey Broad) is the young and attractive temporary office worker who was filling in for Pam while she was on her maternity leave. She remained employed at the company for a short period of time after Pam returned.

Claudia Jordan made a name for herself during the seventh season of the show by taking on Ne Ne Leakes, something which the self-proclaimed Queen Bee was not happy with.

After Season 7 ended, Leakes was vocal about the cast changes she felt producers needed to make, as the “The show IS called Housewives, isn’t it?

During the conversation, Michael volunteers to accept public responsibility for the scandal and speaks to the press.

Jo thanks Michael and says that if there's anything he needs, she'll be happy to help, prompting Michael to joke about bringing Holly back to Scranton, to which Jo says "Let me see what I can do." (and Holly does return temporarily in season 7).

News of the firing took the TV/radio host by surprise.

When fans reached out to Claudia on Twitter to ask if the rumor is true, Jordon said she had no idea she has been axed from the show.

I don’t mind if there’s one girl, maybe two girls, that aren’t married because it’s always great to see a single girl like dating and all that kind of stuff.
