The Charmed Feud
Shannen Doherty and Alyssa Milano, former co-stars of the supernatural drama Charmed, have been feuding for years. Doherty recently accused Milano of giving producers an ultimatum that got her written off the show after Season 3. Milano denied the allegation, saying she didn’t have the power to fire anyone.
Doherty responded to Milano’s denial during a Charmed panel over the weekend. She said many of the things that had been said had been hurtful and that she had prepared her notes the previous night to tell the truth. Doherty also said she was adamant about not causing any more drama and that she and Holly Marie Combs edited out anything they thought would heat up the feud.
Milano doubled down on her denial on Instagram, claiming she didn’t have the power to get anyone fired. She said it came down to the late Aaron Spelling, who followed the advice of a professional mediator amid the on-set drama.
The Truth Matters
Doherty said the truth is more imperative than ever as she battles Stage 4 breast cancer that has spread to her bones. She clarified that there is no revisionist history at play and that she is paying attention to the facts as if she were still living in them.
Rose McGowan, another former Charmed co-star, weighed in on the feud. She said the cast wanted to protect the audience for a long time, but it seems like the time for that is over.
The Future of the Feud
Now that the floodgates have opened, it will be interesting to see what Milano says in response and whether there’s any hope of these one-time colleagues repairing their relationship.
