Things We Saw Today: In Which Buffy Summers and Prue Halliwell Talk About Their Friendship

Shannen Doherty and Sarah Michelle Gellar had an excellent interview on ET that made my Buffy/Charmed heart sing like crazy. The two women were at Doherty’s home and they talked about Doherty’s stage 4 cancer, Beverly Hills: 90210, and their friendship, which has lasted so many years. Also, I’d love to have Sarah Michelle Gellar have her own interview show where she talks to her friends.

I felt myself getting emotional and smiling at the friendship between these two women and that despite everything they can be so vulnerable with each other. Gellar’s warmth, Doherty’s natural charisma, and both of their snark made this an excellent watch. Most importantly it’s great that they both love and support each other. More positive celebrity things like this, please!

At one point Doherty asks if Gellar’s kids prefer 90210 to Buffy.

“So, they’re just finishing Buffy, and they’re getting ready to start the first three years of Charmed,” Gellar said.

“And only the first three years,” Doherty says. “Then we’re just going to turn it off.”

“There’s more than three years? I don’t think so,” Gellar quips. “Well, there’s three years and a reboot.”
