Rose McGowan Calls 'Charmed' Co-Star Alyssa Milano a 'Lie'

Rose McGowan Calls 'Charmed' Co-Star Alyssa Milano a 'Lie'

Rose McGowan poses with her book “Brave” at a 92Y conversation with Ronan Farrow on Thursday (February 1) in New York City.

The night before, the 45-year-old actress appeared on Nightline and shared her thoughts on her former Charmed co-star Alyssa Milano.

When asked if she’s proud of Alyssa for her work with the Me Too movement, Rose said, “I don’t like her” and added, “’cause I think she’s a lie.”

“Do you think I don’t know these people? I’m not looking at this from the outside. I have a lot of experience. I know she’s married to a CAA agent [Dave Bugliari],” Rose said. “I do the math. Who’s behind Time’s Up? CAA. Where do they meet? CAA. Who needs good PR? CAA. Who are part of the pimp problem? CAA.”

When the reporter said, “these are very powerful people you’re talking about,” Rose replied, “They are. So am I.”

Alyssa provided a statement in which she voiced support for Rose.

“I am and always have been completely supportive of Rose and admire her bravery in speaking about her experiences,” she said. “Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and perspectives, and I cannot speak to anyone else’s motivations. My goal throughout the past few months with both #MeToo and the Time’s Up movement has been to use my platform to give others a voice so we can all work together to stamp out sexual harassment and sexual assault.”

    ENOUGH ALREADY! We are all so sorry that your career ended, but go seek money/attention somewhere else.

  • Ryan Tyler Hughes

    Shouldn’t you be saying that you are the lie! Your failed marriages, your rebellious relationship with Marilyn Manson should be the red flag that you need psychological help and your long rap sheet of controversy and now your allegations are a cry for you want in on the spotlight you want the attention too. Stop pointing fingers at others and blaming Alyssa for your past mistakes and problems take responsibility for your own mistakes and help cleanse yourself by looking in the mirror point to yourself and say I am the lie.

    Rose is a mess. The biggest problem with Rose and her message is Rose herself. And it’s a pity because I actually believe her. Who gives a shit about Alyssa Milano?? When did this has-been become the voice of a movement? It is VERY shady how Alyssa — married into the power structure of Hollywood, which is the CORE of all the abuse and corruption — is suddenly the face and voice of a women’s movement. Alyssa Milano, people. Let that sink in. I believe Rose — I just think she’s an AWFUL messanger right now.

    Sadly it turns out Rose is the lie.

  • Blake

    why is she still a thing?? everybody is sick and tired of her rant…

  • Jaclyn Shortt

    This was never about what happened to her, the more she does and says it becomes clear it’s an attempt to make herself relevant again and lash out at people who are more successful than she is.

  • Stoni

    Take your meds crazy.

  • Sara

    Rose sounds like she has totally lost touch with reality. I hope someone in her life will help her get the mental health treatment she so obviously needs.

    Sorry, but what started as wanting to bring an end to a culture of abuse has just become a witch hunt for her. She just attacks everyone. Alyssa Milano, Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey. I’m sure i’m forgetting people. She has a lot of anger and she’s taking it out on the wrong people. Makes people think she’s crazy, and they don’t want to listen to her. It’s not about the message but how you deliver it.

    Once again proving my point: “Charmed” should have gone with their number 2 choice to replace Shannen Doherty: Denise Richards, not crazy Rose. This would have given Rose the time, early on, to heal herself. Now she’s just lashing out at everyone. And bringing discredit to the very important issue of sexual abuse.

  • Yeezus_chri5t

    Is it me or she’s ruining all the Weinstein case ???

  • Emmy Snow

    I feel sorry for all that’s happened to her, but lashing out at other women trying to make things better is counter productive.

  • Michele V

    She’s like a walking soundbite. But I’ll keep asking this, Rose: why did you defend Victor Salva? You’re also part of the problem.

  • Gina

    Why is she taking a movement that is meant to unify women as a platform to be so damn combative with other women? Times Up on my sympathy for her.

    P.S Those ridiculous drawn on eyebrows of yours are a lie.

  • Lanes

    I just dont get it. She has all these women that have come out and shown support, but she burns bridges and still acts like shes in this fight alone!

  • J.K.

    The way she says “I don’t like her” cracks me up every time, sorry

    The worst is that people believe her and is ruining people’s lives as she goes. She now admits she Never told Ben Affleck she was raped.A little too damn late don’t you think? She should be the last person giving people advice .When she needs psychological help herself.

  • #BlacksLivesMatter

    where’s she admits that? Because she called him out harshly on twitter. But even if he knew, what he could have done? Weinstein was powerful and he could have broken his career as well. Plus she worked and supported Victor Salva, a convicted pedophile and when the journalist told her she said it wasn’t really her business so why her story would have been his business?

    I can’t stand her but I see her point. Milano and similar C list stars are getting a lot of media coverage thanks to Me Too. How convenient is to solidarize now when it’s safe. Opportunists will ride any train they can and turn everything into self-promotion and PR stunt. Me Too is already a travesty because everyone is exploiting it for their self interest.

  • Willowy Willow

    Yup .. McGowan said they have it wrong. “I never told Ben what happened in that hotel room,” she said.

    However the part that got me was the [o]nce written off as a shrill loon.” If she does not get back on her meds so, she will be returning there again quickly.

  • Alex Davenport

    I have my issues with Rose McGowan’s level of harshness with everyone. I came to this link thinking it would make me hate her, but now realizing that she had been sexually assaulted and was a part of this culture in Hollywood where everyone around her knew what was going on and basically pimped some many young people out to rapists and pedoohiles with no shame, I see that she genuinely hates these people because like she said, she knows these people. I don’t know what inspired this level of distaste for Alyssa in particular, but I believe she may have told her about what happened. Alyssa has been in this industry her whole life: when would she become a defender of their victins? When she sensed a movement about to take them down? Maybe. I won’t judge either of them for this. Rose knows Alyssa better than we ever will. I’ll assume she isn’t completely baseless in her stance.

    “Wow” She Only Doin This Because Shannon Don’t Like Alyssa. Rose Get ur Life & Stop Blaming People For Your Mistakes.

  • #BlacksLivesMatter

    Thanks

  • #BlacksLivesMatter

    They have it wrong? Maybe because she called him out on twitter saying “fuck you Ben, I told you”. So she never told him about her rape. And everyone was fuck him, he’s cancelled while she lied. I think she have some psychological issues. She is harming her cause

  • Atlanta_Girl

    McGowan, you made your choices, and you have NO ONE to blame except yourself. You chose not to go to the police and instead, took money for silence while countless other women assaulted. That has got to eat someone’s soul up – but your anger is misdirected – look in the mirror.

    And get help. You need it.

  • Atlanta_Girl

    The whole movement is about making money.
