Charmed TV Show FEUD!

CAT-FIGHT! The stars of the original "Charmed" have been in a social media FEUD with the news stars of the reboot "Charmed"

It all started with Rose McGowan saying the reboot “sucks.”

“I haven’t seen it, I can’t say that. I’ve never seen it,” McGowan continued, adding that “I’m happy that people have jobs. But it can still suck.”

Holly Marie Combs says

“Charmed belongs to the four [main actresses], our vast amount of writers, crews and predominantly the fans. FYI you will not fool them by owning a title/stamp. So bye.”

Which led Sarah Jeffery, who stars as Maggie Vera on The CW’s reboot, to call two of her Charmed predecessors “sad and quite frankly pathetic”

New - Holly Marie Combs has followed up after Sarah Jeffery (Maggie Vera on The CW’s reboot) to call two of her Charmed predecessors “sad and quite frankly pathetic to see grown women behaving this way.”

Holly Marie now says (after being called pathetic)

“That’s some [bulls–t]. And a lot of it. Clearly. People speaking, excuse me typing, derogatory accusations of a person’s character despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary because of a difference in opinions about a tv show is just plain wrong. And also personal gain honey.”

“There’s more important things happening in the world, Carry on.”

R3 Because she's not in it, of course!

Combs and McGowan have been dogging this show since it was announced. Almost pathologically.

Milano has remained pretty much ambivalent but positive.

Doherty has said she wishes them luck and Hope's that it can help younger audiences like the original.

by Anonymousreply 510/14/2020

Shannen Doherty is a class act. She was super nice to one of the new actress' dads.

And Sarah Jeffrey is right. It is pathetic to see them act like this. Hell, if they were smart they would:

1. Realize the CW won't cancel the damn show. They keep everything on forever.

2. Realize that if they were supportive of the show they could possibly appear on it. I'm sure they would have been happy to have them. Then they could get whatever paycheck they want.

Nothing they do is going to get their version of Charmed back on the air as a reboot at this point. (The new version got renewed again.)

And it's sad after all these years THAT was seemingly the height of their career (McGowan and Combs.) Seems Milano and Doherty have done better, at least mentally.

The poll is hard to answer because EARLY Original Charmed was good, but the show was a steaming pile of shit at the end. The reboot is...ok.

Ever since the reboot wass announced, Holly Marie Combs has been acting like her ex husband dragged her into court and called her an unfit mother. Your Charmed is not erased. You got paid. EVERYTHING is getting rebooted, so why should you be spared?

And they can't bring back the original anyway. All the actresses hate each other. Doherty and Combs don't speak and McGowan would try to kill Milano if they were in 100 feet of each other. She's...obsessed.

Rose responds in her typical ROSE fashion

'Dear Sarah Jeffery, I honestly have no idea who you were til you tweeted. I have been too busy fighting monsters & fighting for a massive Cultural Reset to notice who's in the reboot. Absolutely nothing to do with race, that's quite a stretch you took. I'm beyond glad any WOC has a well paying job. Hell yes to that. I'm sure you are a great actress.

'My quibble (google it) is about execs & producers & @wb network trading on years of my work & name in such a cynical and obvious way - a money grab to cash in on the Charmed name. I do not care that they remade it, I have far bigger things I'm dealing with. I do not nor will I watch a show I disagree with on principle.

'This is not my ego trashing the reboot, this is a criticism of creators (those are the ones who should be embarrassed) with little to no imagination making bank off of years of us busting our a** to create a legacy that you are actually profiting off of as well.'

'I care that the original fans weren't listened to. I care that Hollywood won't stop making remakes that don't need to be remade. It's a formula that's gone on for too long. Mediocrity rules there, not just sociopaths. There's no soul or heart in something made purely for profit whilst refusing to elevate and innovate. Reboots will always be the shadow, the originals will always be the sun. I wish you well.'

I may be the only one at DL who likes Rose and her early days of social justice activism, but she's laying it pretty thick with that comment. She doesn't own a stake in the Charmed franchise. She doesn't even own her own character. She was an employee getting paid to perform.

Holly Mary Combs at least had, at one point, a producer credit. At first I thought the drama was fabricated to get some fake controversy buzz for the reboot. But she really seems to take the reboot thing super personal for some reason.

by Anonymousreply 2710/14/2020

Just like 90210, the original sucked after Shannen left, and the reboot is terrible.

by Anonymousreply 2810/14/2020

R27 I appreciate what Rose tries/d to do but she makes everything about herself, acts like feminism is her way or no way and anyone who disagrees with her is wrong.

Holly Marie Combs really needs a xanax. Everything gets rebooted. You're not special. And the years she had a producer credit were awful.

But it's beyond tacky for the original actors to criticise it like this, really reflects poorly on them. It's like if you were to criticise the person who took over your job role at a workplace after 10 years - just makes absolutely no sense, you just look like an idiot.

by Anonymousreply 3410/15/2020

Of course they're going to complain, they spent so many years on the OG show for it to be cancelled. This is personal to them. Although I don't know why Rose is talking, since she hated doing the show so much. Girl needs to get some help.

And why is this bitch from the new show even talking, let alone complaining? You're on a CW show, sweetie, no one is watching for you. If you're not Liz Gillies or Lilli Reinhart, who have established careers outside, your chances of progressing are slim. Just keep your mouth shut and collect the check while you still can.

by Anonymousreply 3510/15/2020

The reboot isn't great. The first season was a waste of time because they got rid of every recurring character.

But the original was never emmy worthy either.

by Anonymousreply 3610/15/2020

Milano said on Wendy that "Hurt people. Hurt. People" so she doesn't get into it with Rose--who Wendy called Roseanne, btw--and prays for her, which you just know KILLS McGowan. Doherty and Milano have always been professional and rarely directly attacked each other. Not sure if that translates to maturity or being in the business since they were fetuses.

I wish I was in the room during that Armin chat. The original got better once McGowan signed on

by Anonymousreply 3710/15/2020

Doherty and Milano are cool with each other now. Milano reached out to her when she went public with her cancer. I think they both mellowed out with age.

It is a weird dynamic. Milano and Doherty are cool. Milano and Combs are cool. Combs and McGowan are cool. McGowan hates Milano but really wants to work with Doherty.

And no, the show did not get better when McGowan joined.

Is Combs actually cool with Milano? I thought she had made snarky comments in the past about her.

R35 Neither Liz or Lili have established careers outside. lol. Liz Gillies got famous from a kids show, did Lifetime movies and a canceled FX series and now she’s in a crappy reboot. Lili got lucky with Hustlers but I’d hardly say she’s got an established career outside of Riverdale.

Shannen is the only smart one whose agent got her a % ownership of Charmed in her contract. So even after she left and now with the reboot she’ll be making money off it.

When asked about that Holly Marie Combs responds

"Let’s get one thing straight. I don’t use social media to send messages to people I’ve known for 30 years. You can. But I don’t."

Combs followed up her Twitter post, by sharing an adorable cat video, with the caption "This. Cuz Twitter is filled with idiots."

by Anonymousreply 4810/15/2020

Remember when Shannen seemed like the unstable one? Who knew she's actually the most down to earth of them all and got while the going was good.

Rose is trashing a show she's never seen which is so childish and shitty and, once again, making it all about herself. She can't possibly watch it because she's too busy fighting monsters? No, you're not, bitch. You're taking pictures and videos of your duck lipped ass while drunk and/or high every night. You're embarrassing yourself. It's people like her that give real social justice movements a bad name.

Rose has to be one of the most clear cut cases of narcissistic personality disorder I've ever seen. Maybe she was more covert about it when things were going her way in the 90's and early 2000s, but ever since her fall from grace, she's been much more grandiose about it.

"Our personal take on it? If each of them was cut a check to do a two-minute walk-on, none of this would be happening. The CW and show's creators "dared" to actually want to make a show that took place in a different universe. Boo. Hoo. Folks? Get over it. Also, McGowan and Holly Marie Combs Ryan took time out of their personal lives to record and post a video trashing the show. We're assuming all of the world's problems have been solved by now, because contrary to what McGowan writes? They clearly have more time on their hands than they're letting on. Lastly… how do you trash a series you've never watched?!? Saying a series you've never watched has "no soul or heart" and not expect the person associated with it to push back- especially a show that has so many WOC in lead roles- is not only the height of privilege at some of its worst but it also says a ton more about McGowan than it does about Jeffery or Charmed– and not much of it's good.

But hey, she made sure E! got the 411 so she got some media traction out of it…"

by Anonymousreply 5810/15/2020

Let me be perfectly blunt: McGowan, Combs, Alyssa Milano, and Shannen Doherty (who has been unproblematic regarding the sequel because she's living her life like a true adult) are not owed anything by the cast and crew of the sequel series. They did not create the concept of the show, nor did they create it themselves. They were actors and, at most, producers. Aside from the title and basic premise, these are not the same shows. Nobody needed to approach the original cast when they began developing the new series because their version of the show ended in 2006. Maybe they could have, if they hadn't completely shot it down from the beginning, but they didn't need to. The original series finale featured the sisters defeating the Big Bad and flashing forward to their future families, which is everything they wanted from the beginning of the series. The new series does not follow that finale. So what would McGowan, Combs, or Milano have to say about being Black or Latina witches in 2018? What new information about being feminists could they tell production, headed by women, that they already don't know? What did they have to contribute to the new series?!

That sense of entitlement is the exact problem with McGowan and Combs. It's not about unnecessary remakes and creating shows off other ideas for profit, because Charmed itself was created to jump off the popularity of films like Practical Magic and The Craft. They're just upset that their "hard work" is the jumping-off point for something newer that they have no part in. Things get remade to tell new stories all the time, and the new series is nothing like the old one. It's high time that people like McGowan, Combs, and all the "fans" praising their behavior got over that. You don't have to watch the new series if you don't want to or don't like it, but either way, you have no right to belittle the people who work on it, especially when they haven't done anything to provoke you.

R59, Actually Shannen DOES own 10% of the new Charmed, so the new cast owed it to Shannen to do well. It also is in Shannen's interest to make sure the new cast keep the train going.

by Anonymousreply 6210/16/2020

I'd be flattered if something I was a part of was remade. That means it was a story that resonated with people the first time around. Look at Cinderella. How many versions of that have there been? It's because it's an interesting story about human triumph and each version, ideally, should show that in a different way.
