Looks like Alyssa Milano’s experience on Charmed didn’t quite live up to the title of the show. Talking with Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, July 9, the Mistresses actress hinted that things weren’t always magical between her and former costars Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs.
Asked what really went down when Doherty left the show in 2001 after playing witchy sister Prue Halliwell for three seasons, the 40-year-old Who’s the Boss? alum said even she wasn’t sure. “We never really found out what happened,” she told the fan who asked the question. “I can tell you that we were on the air with her for three years, and there were definitely some rough days.”
“Holly and Shannen were best friends for like 10 years before the show started, so it was very much sort of like high school,” she explained. “I would hope that in our thirties it wouldn’t be like that anymore.”
“High school is over!” Cohen quipped.
The former child star laughed, then added: “I never went to a high school because I was tutored on the set, but I imagine it would have been a lot like that.”
Combs, now starring on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, apparently disagreed with Milano’s assessment of the experience. “Working on Charmed was nothing like high school,” she tweeted. “I went to high school. It was a very important job to me and always will be.”
“Yeah, agreed, considering it helped me support my family and pay for my dad’s medical issues, but everyone has their opinion and views,” Doherty chimed in. She later added, however, that she wasn’t mad and thought Milano “did a great job” on WWHL. “That show can be tricky,” she tweeted to a fan.
“OK, gang, there’s no drama,” she clarified. “Let’s not feed into it!!”
Milano, for her part, later tried to smooth things over with her former costars. In response to Combs’ tweet, she wrote, “You’re lovely…My best to the family! Mwah! And my parents send their love to you!”
Combs didn’t respond, but she and Milano can at least agree on one thing: Charmed was important to both of them. “It was the best job I’ve ever had in my life,” Milano said on WWHL. “Certainly a learning experience.”
Annnd, we’ve got even more talk show releated updates for y’all! On July 9, Alyssa appeared on the talk show “Watch What Happens Live“. This is definitly one of my favorite interviews this year, as she finally got some questions we haven’t heard a trillion times before. It also featured a bunch of old clips of Alyssa’s past projects, including her Teen Steam workout video, Crash Course, an old commercial (which I had never seen before!) and more. Trivia loving fans will also love that Alyssa used to play basketball on set with George Clooney as a kid!

Los Angeles, July 4: Actor Channing Tatum admits to having a childhood crush on actress Alyssa Milano.
The 33-year-old, now married to actress Jenna Dewan and father of a daughter, also said that Milano was his first celebrity crush and he would probably freak out if he met her.
“She was it, man. I’d love to run into her. I’m pretty sure I’d geek out. Isn’t she married,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Tatum as saying.
The “White House Down” star also said that he likes to swim when he isn’t working.
“I have a really nice back porch where the pool is. Once the shoes are off, the socks come off too, and then everything else downstairs just follows at some point.”
Tatum and his wife, who met on the set of their movie “Step Up” in 2006, have a unique way of making sure they are still happy together.
“Jenna and I have a trick we use to check in with each other. We say, ‘On a scale of one to 10, how much do you love me right now?’ It’s not as romantic as you think. Sometimes it’s like, ‘I love you at a six right now. I have an issue, and you asked. So now I’m going to tell you’,” he said.
