McGowan blasts ‘fake’ Charmed co-star
ALYSSA Milano started the #MeToo campaign after her Charmed co-star and friend Rose McGowan, as well as dozens of other women, spoke out about being sexually abused by Harvey Weinstein.

"You make me want to vomit. You actually gave me a body flashback. Well done, fake one," McGowan wrote on Twitter.

Milano had appeared on Megan Kelly Today where she was asked if she and Chapman were still friends.
"I am," she said. "I am also very good friends with Rose McGowan, my co-star on Charmed for five years."
"Georgina is doing very well. She's an amazing mother, she's an amazing woman and I think her priority right now is focusing on how to raise those two children to the best of her capacity given the situation," Milano said. "She goes through very dark times, she's very sad. This is not easy for her.
"But I have no doubt that not only will she come out on the other side of it but she deserves to, she is a good woman," she said.
Chapman, the founder and fashion designer for Marchesa, has split from Weinstein since the allegations were made public. She has two young children from her marriage to Weinstein.
McGowan, 44, who took a settlement from Weinstein after alleging that he raped her in 1997, has no sympathy for Chapman, saying she was complicit in her husband's alleged bullying of Hollywood stars who say he forced them to wear her Marchesa designs on the red carpet.
McGowan retweeted the following remarks from another user: "I'm saying Georgina Chapman's company was 100 per cent funded by Weinstein money. No one knew who she was in the fashion world before she married him.
"I'm saying Weinstein bullied abused women to wear his wife's clothing line. She knew who and what she married and why."
McGowan went on to suggest that Milano and Chapman "call up Camille Cosby", the wife of alleged rapist Bill Cosby, who has attacked for standing by her husband's side as he denies drugging and having sex with dozens of women.
Milano has not responded to McGowan's comments.
It is not the first of her Charmed sisters who Milano has had a falling out with.
Shannon Doherty was forced to leave the show in 2001 after onset tension with Milano, prompting the writers to create a new sister, who was played by McGowan.
Holly Marie Combs, who played the final sister, has been best friends with Doherty for decades, although Perez Hilton reports the pair had a falling out while the Beverly Hills 90210 star battled breast cancer.
They have unfollowed each other on all social media.
However, the cancer diagnosis saw Milano and Doherty make up after all these years.
"I tweeted, I [direct messaged] her and I told her my concern and how everyone was on her side, and we're all supporting her, and she was very appreciative that I reached out, which was very sweet," Milano said last year. "We decided that we're going to get together. That date has not been set yet."
