A maelstrom of controversy surrounds former All My Children star Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall). The actress has found new fame on The WB series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

Buffy has been going strong for five seasons, but the show's contract with The WB at the end of this season. The show's producers have gone on record as saying that they want the fledgling network to pay much more then the $1 million they are currently paying to license the show. That has led to reports that ABC is interested in picking up the series and paying a much heftier price tag to do so.

Gellar stepped into the fracas by telling E-Online that she'd bow out of the series if it was taken from The WB.

"The WB has been so supportive, such a great network over the past four years. It feels like home. I don't want the show to move, because I feel that we belong on the WB. It's where our fans are," she says. "If Buffy leaves the WB, I'm out."

A show spokesperson immediately moved to chalk up Geller's remarks to her passion for her role and her show.
