Alyssa Milano prayed for Shannen Doherty after cancer diagnosis


Alyssa Milano said a little prayer “everyday” for her former Charmed co-star Shannen Doherty during her breast cancer battle after reaching out to settle their years-long feud.
The two actresses fell out in 2001, when Doherty quit the TV drama amid rumors of behind-the-scenes tension with Milano.

At the time, Doherty told Entertainment Tonight, “There was too much drama on the set and not enough passion for the work. I’m 30 years old and I don’t have time for drama in my life anymore.”
Now, 16 years after the controversy, Milano has revealed their dispute is firmly in the past after reaching out to one another via social media.

Shannen and I talk a lot on Twitter via (direct messenger) and I spoke to her maybe two or three days ago,” she told 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.”

Milano, 44, admitted they had both matured a lot since their Charmed days and wanted to move on as friends.

“I think we’re just at ages now where what happened 15 years ago or however long ago that was – it was a long time ago – it’s now irrelevant,” she continued. “I think that what she has gone through, motherhood in my life – I think it just changes people.”

Milano, who shares two young children with husband Dave Bugliari, only wishes the best for her old pal, and prayed daily after learning of Doherty’s cancer diagnosis.

“I am so happy that she is feeling well and I prayed for her everyday that she would feel well,” she shared, “and I can’t wait to see her.”

Milano had previously told Entertainment Tonight in October (16) she had messaged Doherty online to express her concern as she underwent treatment, insisting the 46-year-old was “appreciative” of her support.

And it appears the extra prayers have paid off as Doherty announced in April (17) her cancer is now in remission.
