TV friends who could not stand each other in real life. Every great television show has a duo that eventually becomes the life of it. Sooner or later, it grows on the audience and they start to root for the duo. One thing that really gets us is the chemistry between the friends on-screen. But are they the same way when the director yells, “and scene,”? Well, no. What might seem to us is a great relationship on-screen isn’t always the case when it comes to reality. Check out this list of TV friends who couldn’t stand each other in real life and had a rocky relationship.
1. Hannah Montana
Miley Cyrus and Emily Osment had a rocky relationship off-screen which they eventually sort of sorted out. Regardless, they gave us some really strong friendship goals.
2. Anger Management
Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair played great friends, often with benefits, in Anger Management. But it all did not end well when Blair got fired via text! It all started when Blair did not like Sheen’s work ethic.
Naya Rivera and Lea Michele played on-and-off friends on the hit show Glee. However, it was the same in real life too. Reports claimed that they both had a fight on the set and they both stormed off back in 2014.
4. Sam & Cat
Ariana Grande and Jennette McCurdy were like a match made in heaven. But there’s a reason why the show only lasted only one season. That’s because of the tension between the pair which lasted long.
5. Star Trek
The original Star Trek series had some trouble because of the beef between William Shatner and Leanord Nimoy. It’s all because Nimoy got more fan letters, and jealousy got the best of Shatner.
6. Star Trek (5th Series)
Jeri Ryan and Kate Mulgrew were initially close. But when Kate’s rating went through the roof, it left Mulgrew in the dust which was the cause of the rising tension between the duo.
The 1998 supernatural drama had Alyssa Milano and Rose McGowan. Apparently, they had a toxic relationship. In 2020, McGowan tweeted that Milano created a ruckus on the set and was hard to work with. She even said that she cried every time the show got renewed because it was hard to work with Milano. Some real strong words there.
The relationship between Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion got so tense and the former left the show. It was alleged that Katic would go to her dressing room and cry because of Fillion and his behavior.
9. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The main reason for the tension between Sarah Michelle Gellar and Alyson Hannigan was simple. In 2003, Gellar surprised everyone with the announcement that she’s leaving the show which Hannigan didn’t like. Over the years, the remarks only got bolder.
10. The X-Files
Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny couldn’t stand each other by the time the show stopped airing. However, the relationship was sort of okay in the beginning. But the over years, it seriously deteriorated as the public comments by both the actors severed in terms of respect.
