The actresses were good friends before filming, which changed for the first time in the series. Then two of them went through a personal crisis. Shannen Doherty, who played the telekinesis-gifted Prue, was taking care of her sick father, and Holly Marie Combs, Piper’s representative, had to undergo an operation on her uterus at the time due to suspected cancer.
When Doherty wanted to visit her after the operation, Phoebe’s representative, Alyssa Milano, got involved with her family. I waited 24 hours after your surgery, but they didn’t let me go to see you, even so it was a problem in the end. Alyssa and her mother got in the way of people who wanted to visit you, and in the meantime, I received a text message from you asking me when I was coming, Doherty told her co-star on the Lets Be Clear podcast.
Call it back a weird feud that created a lot of tension throughout the entire series. I was angry that you wouldn’t let me see you, and because of the way the pugs, dows, and pists got into it, and then she cried every evening because of it.
Holly Marie Combs’ tweet that Alyssa Milano’s family somehow adopted her. When my parents raised me, they were quite young themselves, and she never had a large family. So when they were chasing me and practically wanted to adopt me, it was a big temptation for me, he explains. But mainly I wanted them to go out together, he added. No one was good or bad. Both of us got along well and both of us didn’t, now and then we could treat each other better, but we both lacked perspective at the time.
Published in 2021, Alyssa Milano also wrote. With Shannen Doherty, whom he considers to be a great actress, for today, go out with her. I could blame a lot of that tension between them. More than one problem stemmed from my feeling that we were competing with each other, instead of being about sisterhood as in the series itself. And I’m certainly not to blame for that either.
The character of Prue in the series failed because Shannen Doherty didn’t go on the show and you ran out of patience. After leaving the series, there was to be no communication whatsoever with him.
