Alyssa Milano was accused of firing Shannen Doherty from 'Charmed.'

“I knew this was going to come up in one way or another, and I want to be very thoughtful in how I respond to any of this,” Milano began. “I will just say that I’m sad.”

“I don’t think it’s really that I’m sad for me or for my life or how it does or does not affect my life,” the 51-year-old added. “I’m the most sad for the fans. I am the most sad that a show that has meant so much to so many people has been tarnished by a toxicity that is still to this day almost a quarter of a century later still happening.”

Charmed ran for a total of eight seasons, however, Doherty’s character was killed off at the end of Season 3 due to the supposed drama between castmates.

“I’m sad that people can’t move past it,” she continued. “I’m sad that we all can’t just celebrate the success of a show that meant so much to all of us.”

"He said, 'We didn't mean to — but we've been backed into this corner — we're basically in this position where it's one or the other,'" Combs said.

Combs alleged Milano had a case building against Doherty for "every time she felt uncomfortable on set." However, the Pretty Little Liars alum could not remember any "harsh words” being exchanged or "public brawls" taking place during filming.
