She continued, “You know, I could take responsibility for a lot of our tensions that we had.

“I think a big part of our struggle came from feeling like I was in competition, rather than that it was that sisterhood that the show was so much about. And I feel guilty about my part in it.’

“There was too much drama on set and not enough passion for the work,” she said. “You know, I’m 30 years old and I don’t have time for drama in my life anymore. For me it’s whatever.’

The Heathers star went on to say, “I want to work with actors who really care and who want to be there every day.” The Tennessee clarified that she was not talking about her old friend Holly.

“I don’t want to work with people who whine about their work and complain about it and say they hate it or anything else.”

In a 2013 interview on Watch What Happens Live! With Andy Cohen, Alyssa likened the experience of working on set to being “in high school.”

“Holly and Shannen were best friends for about 10 years before the show started, so it was a bit like high school,” she told Cohen, 53. “I hope it wouldn’t be like that in your thirties.”

“High school is over,” the talk show host replied with a laugh.

“I never went to high school because I was tutored on set, but I imagine it would have been a lot that way,” the Who’s the Boss? said star.

Holly, now 47, and Shannen both responded to Alyssa’s comments on Twitter. Holly wrote, “Working on Charmed was nothing like high school. I went to high school. It was and always will be a very important task for me.’

Shannen responded to her opponent’s post, saying, “Yeah, I agree, since it helped support my family and pay for my dad’s medical problems, but everyone has their own opinion and opinion.”
