Barry Watson — the ”Sorority Boys” star who plays eldest son Matt Camden on the WB smash ”7th Heaven” — doesn’t want to return for season 7 because ”I just want some time to breathe.” (Two years ago, Jessica Biel also expressed a desire to leave — and played Mary Camden only part-time before returning full-time this year.)

A WB rep says nothing’s official, but you’ve got to wonder if pinup boy Watson’s departure will affect the show’s ranking as the No. 1 destination for female teens. Offers Watson, ”Maybe ‘Angel’ will get canceled and they’ll bring in David Boreanaz.”
