After Doherty and Holly Marie Combs, who also played in the fantasy drama series, made allegations that Milano was the reason behind the unexpected departure of the “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum from “Charmed” following the conclusion of the third season in 2001, the actress, who is now 51 years old, broke her silence on social media.
Milano addressed the charges made by her co-stars on Friday during a panel discussion that took place at MegaCon in Orlando, Florida. However, she did not expressly respond to Doherty’s departure from the show.
In an Instagram post that she published on Saturday, Milano provided further explanation on her comments, noting that she “did not have the power to get anyone fired.”
“For me, this is fifteen movies and thirteen television shows ago. This was eleven years before I had been married for fifteen years, and thirteen years before I ever had my first child. It has been such a long time since this occurred that any recounting of these tales by anyone is nothing more than revisionist history.
In an appearance that took place in December on Doherty’s “Let’s Be Clear” podcast, Combs remembered a conversation that she asserted she had with one of the show’s producers following the termination of her “Charmed” co-star.

“There was a professional mediator (I was told Holly and Shannen would not participate in any mediation) and an on-set producer/babysitter who were both brought in to investigate all claims,” according to Milano.
“It was then recommended by this mediator, after collecting testimony from cast AND crew—what changes should be made if the show was going to continue,” said the spokesperson. The studio, Aaron Spelling, and the network came to the conclusion that it was in everyone’s best interest to safeguard the worldwide marvel that was Charmed.
Originally, Milano, Doherty, and Combs were the stars of the television show “Charmed,” which was produced by Aaron Spelling and had its premiere on the Women’s Broadcasting Network in the year 1998. They played the role of three sisters who discover that they are the most powerful witches in the history of the world.
In the year 2020, McGowan made the accusation that Milano had exhibited behavior that was deemed “toxic” while working on the set of “Charmed.”
During a heated exchange with Milano on X, which was formerly known as Twitter, McGowan remarked, “You made two hundred and fifty thousand dollars per week on Charmed.”
“They don’t pay me enough to do this s—!” you yelled out in front of the crew as you threw a scene and showed your frustration. a daily display of behavior that is appalling. Due to the fact that you made that show really toxic, I shed tears each time we were renewed. Now, you f—ing fraud, get off my coattails and leave me alone.
In an interview with People magazine at the time, a spokesman for Milano stated, “Hurt people hurt people.” The continuation of my wellness plan does not permit me to comment any further.
During her statements at MegaCon, Milano mentioned that she was addressing both the podcast debate that Doherty and Combs were having as well as the comments that McGowan had made in the past.
In the final part of her Instagram message, Milano expressed her gratitude to the audience for the show “Charmed” and sent her best wishes to her former co-stars.
