Megan Mullally will miss two episodes of Will & Grace’s final season, as reports of a behind-the-scenes feud continue to generate buzz.
Mullally, who plays the iconic Karen Walker, has reportedly been in fights with her castmates, Debra Messing and Sean Hayes. Fans noticed earlier this year that she had unfollowed Messing and Hayes on Instagram.
In May, Mullally posted:
“It’s okay to let go of relationships that aren’t healthy and positive, even with people you’ve known for years and once trusted.
Shout out to the people who are happy for your happiness, who feel the excitement when you win, who take joy in your success.”
Ouch. But I guess she has no problem with Eric McCormack (Will) who she continues to follow. McCormack dismissed speculation of a rift as “crazy,” telling Us Weekly,
“I think people worried about that entirely too much… The four of us get along like a house on fire, we always have.”
The end of Will & Grace for the second time was explained by show, creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick in July,
“At the end of this year, we will have made a total of 246 episodes of Will & Grace over 11 seasons and 21 years…
In the interest of protecting the legacy of this show and the truly outstanding work that went into making every episode, we have decided now is the time to stop.
We should all consider ourselves very lucky, we have all had a once-in-a-lifetime experience twice. Thank you. We love you.”
OK. But the four have seldom been seen off-screen together over the past few months and Mullally has been absent from selfies that Messing has posted with her two male co-stars. Maybe she was busy.
Or as Karen might say,
“Oh, save it, honey and we’ll crack it open when we’re desperate.”
