Two-Thirds Of A “Charmed” Reunion
Nostalgia alert! Well, if you consider 1998 old school, which I guess I sort of do. Anyway, I was never a “Charmed” fan to the extent it was must-see TV for me, but I liked it well enough. I think what I really liked was all the behind-the-scenes drama the show had going for it.
A brief summary: Aaron Spelling created the show about 3 sisters who used their witchcraft to fight evil. The “charmed ones” were played by Shannen Doherty, Holly Marie Combs and Alyssa Milano. At first all was sunshine and roses, then, as always seems to happen when Shannen is involved, things got ugly–specifically between her and Alyssa. The fighting got so bad that, guess what? Shannen’s character got killed off after the third season. Lesson to be learned: a Long Island hard-ass trumps a spoiled tv diva.
What is it about that woman? I have a theory that if you’re one of the approximately six people in the world who will put up with her crazy bitchiness, you’re her friend for life. But it’s all on you. If you don’t fall in line–like Alyssa Milano and all her old 90210 cronies–it’s sayonara city. Clearly, Holly Marie Combs falls into the former category. Here are the two leaving Nobu on Saturday night. I wonder if Shannen’s the type to badmouth all her old friends while Holly just sits there repeating “I’m staying out of it” all night. I’d go with a resounding yes.
