Furious Rose McGowan blasts old friend Alyssa Milano on Twitter over Weinstein’s wife


Rose McGowan took to Twitter to attack her former “Charmed” co-star Alyssa Milano, after the latter appeared on television and voiced her supporter of Georgina Chapman, Harvey Weinstein’s now estranged wife.

Milano appeared on “Megyn Kelly Today” last week and chatted with the host about her friend Chapman — with whom she worked on “Project Runway: All Stars.” Chapman announced in October said that she was leaving Weinstein after 10 years of marriage in the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations made against him by numerous women.

“Georgina is doing very well … 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 this, but she deserves to. She’s a good woman.”

In response, a furious McGowan tweeted “You make me want to vomit. You actually gave me a body flashback. Well done, fake one.”

McGowan then suggested that Milano and Chapman should “call up Camille Cosby” — the wife of comedian Bill Cosby, who stood by her husband after several sexual assault allegations.

McGowan was one of the first women to publicly speak out against Weinstein. She also slammed actor Ben Affleck after former MTV VA Hilarie Burton accused him of groping her during a taping of “TRL.” Affleck has since apologized on Twitter.

McGowan alleged that she was part of a settlement with Weinstein in 1997 following an encounter in a hotel room in an explosive New York Times article.

Back in October, she was suspended from Twitter for violating the social media site’s rules.

The actress took to Instagram to voice her frustrations with a screenshot of her Twitter account that stated the “account violated the Twitter Rules” and they “temporarily limited some of [the] account features.”

“TWITTER HAS SUSPENDED ME. THERE ARE POWERFUL FORCES AT WORK. BE MY VOICE. #ROSEARMY,” McGowan added in the caption.
