Good Wife Archie Panjabi Confirms Feud with Julianna Margulies – No Denying It Anymore
It seems the rumors of an ongoing feud between the former co-stars Julianna Marguiles and Archie Panjabi of The Good Wife have become verified facts.
There are no more rumors since Archie Panjabi took to Twitter to slam Julianna Marguiles and ask her straight up, “@TheFallTV was not even in production at that time and I was in New York ready to film the scene!”
What was Panjabi talking about? She was talking about the final farewell scene with Archie and Julianna, with the two sitting at a bar together – but thanks to the magic of television, the scene was apparently filmed separately. Say it isn’t so Julianna? Archie said she was in town and ready to film the final scene. Does this mean that Julianna Margulies went all diva on us and refused to film with Archie? The two hadn’t been in a scene together on The Good Wife for years.
It has been rumored that Margulies and Panjabi have had a years-long feud behind the scenes of their hit CBS drama. In an interview with Vulture Magazine, Margulies said,
“I’ve heard about [the feud]. Who says that? It’s totally gossip.” She continued, “I feel people just like to have gossip or make something into something that isn’t there. There’s no animosity on my part.”
According to Margulies, the two filmed their last episode separate because that is what the director wanted and because Panjabi was busy filming The Fall. Both have been bitterly disputed by Panjabi. So much for no hard feelings.
Panjabi has landed on her feet and has signed a development/holding deal with 20th Century Fox Television, which will lead to her starring in a drama pilot for the studio in the spring.
So why the sour grapes? Let bygones be bygones and let it go Archie.
