One popular series that brings back memories from countless people is “Charmed.” The fantasy drama started airing in the late ’90s and gathered a cult following not long after. The last episodes were released sometime in 2006.
The fantasy series followed three sisters dubbed “The Charmed Ones.” They were apparently the most powerful good witches of all time. One of the key actors was Alyssa Milano, who played the happy, carefree Phoebe Halliwell.
Milano recently revealed that despite how popular the series was, her children are yet to watch it. Her reasons, while being hilarious, are understandably valid. One of them is the sultry tummy baring fashion of the series and her ongoing crop top war with her daughter Elizabella.
Alyssa Milano Was In ‘Charmed’
In addition to her numerous tv appearances over the years, Milano is well known for her role in the 1998 series “Charmed.” The fantasy drama was created by Constance M. Burge with Aaron Spelling in charge of production. “Charmed” was released on The WB and aired till 2006 until it got canceled.
The series had quite the cult following and popularity upon its release and commercial and critical success. These all ensured its spot in pop culture and propelled the careers of the lead actors forward.
Milano started her acting career long before her appearance in “Charmed.” Aged just seven, the actress was selected to be part of the national touring company of “Annie.” After the tour, she starred in several commercials and made her movie debut in a coming-of-age drama titled “Old Enough.” Milano starred in several more roles until she was added to the “Charmed” cast.
Why Milano’s Children Haven’t Watched The Show
In a TikTok video initially made to answer fans’ questions, Milano was asked if her children Milo and Elizabella had watched “Charmed.” She got married to David Bugliari, a CAA agent, in 2008. The couple welcomed their son in 2011 and daughter in 2014.
After being asked the question, the actress immediately seemed amused by her answer. She revealed that one reason her children hadn’t seen the show was because she locked lips with many actors on screen. She said, “I Kiss a lot of guys on ‘Charmed’ —so many guys that are not their dad.”
Milano Doesn’t Want Her Daughter Copying Her
In “Charmed,” Milano acted alongside actresses like Shannen Doherty, Holly-Marie Combs, and Rose McGowan. Her character was Phoebe Halliwell, one of the three witch sisters called The Charmed Ones. In addition to its intriguing storyline, the show was particularly famous for its representation of the peak ’90s fashion and the Y2K culture.
In her video, Milano mentioned that her daughter was in the phase of her life where things like “belly tops” appealed to her. This clothing article is apparently a big part of the sultry fashion of the “Charmed” series, making Milano’s hesitance understandable.
The actress herself wore several crop tops during her time filming. Considering the show’s legacy and popularity, one can only say it’s a matter of time before the actress’s children get their fill of it: crop tops, witchy powers, and all. Until then, Milano has ample reason and time to keep her daughter off the crop top craze.

The 1998 series followed three sisters called The Charmed ones. There were the most powerful good witches to have lived. In addition to saving the lives of countless people from demons and warlocks with their combined “Power of Three,” the sisters also try to live everyday lives in San Francisco.
The characters try to separate their supernatural identities and capabilities from their everyday lives. When they can’t help but use magic, the ensuing result is a number of police and FBI investigations.
The main characters in the series are the three Halliwell sisters named Prue (Doherty), Piper (Marie-Combs), and Phoebe, played by Milano. In the third season, Prue died and was replaced within their power of three by their long-lost half-sister, Paige Matthews, played by McGowan.
