Don’t expect to see a Charmed reunion any time soon… I don’t think we will ever see Rose McGowan and Alyssa Milano together on the same set ever again.
In fact, McGowan leaned all the way in, calling out Milano’s alleged past toxic behavior on the set of Charmed.
The two actresses clearly worked together on the WB hit series for five seasons. But as it turns out, all that time together didn’t help them forge a friendship. The latest spat started on Friday, August 21, following the final night of the Democratic National Convention.
McGowan criticized Democrats, calling them “frauds” and “monsters.” In a follow-up tweet, she accused the party of doing little to solve problems for minorities, saying, “You have achieved nothing.”
I guess it didn’t sit so well for former co-star Milano, who clapped back with a series of tweets listing achievements of the Democratic party over the years.
Milano started off by pointing out the 19th Amendment in 1920, stating, “Under the leadership of Democratic President Woodrow Wilson, the U.S. Constitution was amended to grant women the right to vote.”
McGowan wasn’t afraid to respond, saying, “Ummm… did you conveniently forget only WHITE WOMEN got the right to vote? They betrayed all others.”
She followed that up with another tweet criticizing the early 20th century women’s suffrage movement.
“If I had been the leader of the Suffragettes, I would have waited and fought for EVERYONE’S right to vote,” McGowan said, adding, “And you wonder why Black Women think white feminists are frauds. Most are.”
Milano clapped back.
“Rose and anyone bleating the same ‘dEmOcRaTs DoNt HeLp PeOpLe’ nonsense, your lies are going to hurt people less privileged than you,” she wrote. “It’ the kind of thing an ACTUAL fraud would do. Thousands of people are dying a day but you go on with your hyperbolic attention-seeking tweets.”
That’s when the always outspoken McGowan hit up her former co-star, moving away from politics. She accused her of having “stole” #MeToo from founder Tarana Burke, and for being “toxic AF.”
McGowan later uploaded an interview clip from 2018, in which she told Nightline she thinks Milano is “a lie.”
In the clip, McGowan also points out that her former co-star is married to a Creative Artists Agency (CAA) talent agent, and implies that CAA is a part of the problem in Hollywood. As it turns out, Milano is also friends with the estranged wife of McGowan’s alleged sexual assailant, Harvey Weinstein.
In a follow-up tweet on Sunday, McGowan posted that Milano had blocked her on Twitter.
In response, Milano has only said, “Hurt people hurt people. Commenting any further doesn’t align with my wellness plan.”
