Charmed Stars Slam Network
CHARMED stars HOLLY MARIE COMBS and ROSE MCGOWAN are thrilled the magical series is ending after eight seasons, because they were so badly treated by bosses at America's WB network. The show, which also included ALYSSA MILANO and SHANNEN DOHERTY, made history as the longest-running TV series featuring multiple female leads, but that wasn't enough to keep it on air - and the stars couldn't be happier. Combs, who plays PIPER on the show, says, "We were never treated that well. We were never promoted properly by the network." While MCGowan, who plays witch PAIGE, adds, "Then, the network dishonours us by saying we were cancelled, axed, cut. "This last thing about being cancelled seems like the last annoying p**sing match going on with the show. It was extremely rude." Both actresses insist their contracts ran out after the current season, and they didn't plan to return to the show anyway. MCGowan adds, "There was nothing to cancel. They didn't have us... Instead, we continue to get treated like the ugly stepchild of the network. Anyway, I'm proud of what we accomplished."
