Katie Holmes Speaks Out After 'Dawson's Creek' Co-Stars Left Out of Reunion

Katie Holmes is sending love to her Dawson’s Creek co-stars who were left out of the recent reunion.

The 39-year-old actress gave a shout out to Mary-Margaret Humes and John Wesley Shipp, who played her parents on the show and said they were “blindsided” by the reunion.

“This was [Entertainment Weekly's] choice…not ours…it was done behind our backs and we both were literally blindsided by it when we woke up yesterday in NYC and LA…we both did a short telephone interview after the fact but were never told about the reunion,” Mary-Margaret wrote on her Instagram.

She later added, “For the portion of our family that did appear in these photos…congratulations…you look great and I love you…I only wish I had been given the opportunity to have said it to your faces. Such a shame.”

After reading Mary-Margaret‘s message, Katie took to her Instagram to respond.

Mary Margaret and John were such a huge and important part of #dawsonscreek I am so grateful to have worked with them and experience their kindness 💕 #creekweek @thereal_marymargarethumes @johnwesleyshippjr,” Katie wrote.

    I never even thought about the fact they were not on it. The show was really about the kids. Just like 90210 – they did reunion pics back in the day with just the main crew.

    Did anyone even miss them? if you’re asked the stars of Dawson’s Creek, you go for the four main cast, not the minor cast.

  • Max

    I would have loved Kerr Smith to be there, but I didn’t spend one thought on the parents of Dawson. Sorry.

  • Enrico Troielli

    Kerr Smith was there…are you blind?

    Then why was Mary Beth Peil there? She was not part of the main cast either.

  • Reilly

    Gale and Mitch were Dawson’s parents not Joey’s. She was brought up by her sister and her dad was only in it a few times.

  • cf86713

    No but they were surrogate parents to Pacey and Joey compared to their actual parents. So yes I think they should’ve been there.

  • rabidpolitico

    Actually not completely true. They did a reunion where James Eckhouse and Carol Potter were prominent. To include Busy Phillips and not Humes and Shipp was ridiculous.

  • rabidpolitico

    Dawson’s parents were much more integral to the show than Busy Phillips’ character.
