Katie Holmes is mending some broken hearts after her former co-stars were “blindsided” by being left out of the 20 year reunion.
Holmes took to social media to praise Mary-Margaret Humes and John Wesley Shipp, who played Dawson’s parents on the “Creek.” “Mary Margaret and John were such a huge and important part of #dawsonscreek I am so grateful to have worked with them and experience their kindness 💕,” Holmes wrote on Friday.
This comes after a firestorm of controversy over EW’s “reunion” photoshoot of the cast which notably left out both Humes and Shipp, who were NOT pleased.
Humes spilled the tea after the reunion pics went public: “it was done behind our backs and we both were literally blindsided by it when we woke up yesterday.”
Okay, so let me get this off my chest as the initial hurt has subsided just a bit…I send an enormous amount of love and shout outs to the thousands of followers messages and ❤️’s that both @johnwesleyshippjr and I have read about being left out of @entertainmentweekly ‘s #dawsonscreek “reunion” photos. This was their choice…not ours…it was done behind our backs and we both were literally blindsided by it when we woke up yesterday in NYC and LA…we both did a short telephone interview after the fact but were never told about the reunion. For months I have been posting #behindthescenes photos to share my experiences of six years on this show…we were a #family & I know how much the photos mean to you from all the love you send me in comments…Yes, I do read them. Having said that… I will continue to post because yes, I have so much more to share. For the portion of our family that did appear in these photos…congratulations…you look great and I love you…I only wish I had been given the opportunity to have said it to your faces. Such a shame 😔 #moretocome 💟☮️
Shipp also mentioned the snub, posting an actual photo from the shoot with both him and Humes photoshopped in it.
The actual reunion shoot featured Holmes, James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, Joshua Jackson, Busy Philipps, Meredith Monroe, Mary Beth Peil and Kerr Smith. They all got together to reminisce about their time in Capeside.
Even though they don’t wanna wait, Dawson’s parents may have to catch the 40 year reunion.
