The “Sorry Not Sorry” author is, actually, sorry.
Alyssa Milano says she regrets the bitter feud she had with co-star Shannen Doherty on the set of their show “Charmed” — and admitted that much of the trouble was her fault.
“You know, I could take responsibility for a lot of our tension that we had,” the 48-year-old said in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight Tuesday.
“I think a lot of our struggle came from feeling that I was in competition rather than it being that sisterhood that the show was so much about. And I have some guilt about my part in that.”
Milano and Doherty starred as witchy sisters Phoebe and Prue Halliwell, respectively, on the hit WB drama for three seasons together.
Doherty, 50, left the series in 2001, telling Entertainment Tonight, “There was too much drama on the set and not enough passion for the work.”
The “Beverly Hills, 90210” alum — who is now battling cancer — also clarified at the time that she had no issues with Holly Marie Combs, who played a third sister, Piper, on the show.
“We will always be pals, and she doesn’t even know if she’s going back to the show because she doesn’t want to be here without me,” Doherty said, without mentioning the status of her relationship with Milano.
Then in 2017, Milano revealed that she and Doherty had gotten back in contact.
“Shannen and I talk a lot on Twitter via [direct messenger] and I spoke to her maybe two or three days ago,” the “Who’s The Boss? star previously said on E!’s “Daily Pop.” “She was on vacation and we decided that we’re going to get together. That date has not been set yet.”
In 2015, Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer. She went into remission in 2017, but it returned three years later and is still currently fighting for her life.
“When I heard about her diagnosis, I reached out to her,” Milano told ET Tuesday. “And I will send her DMs every couple of months to just check in.”
She continued, “I have respect for her. Great actress, loves her family so much, and I just wish I could’ve felt strong enough in who I was to recognize that back then.”
Milano, who opens up in her new book, “Sorry Not Sorry,” about her life experiences. shared, however, that the collection of personal essays is not a salacious tell-all.
“There was a potential for that, but as I started writing, I felt really uncomfortable sort of telling the secrets that I know,” the author said. “I didn’t want to inflict pain on people.”
