Oh no! Turns out Megan Mullally won’t be appearing in every episode of Will & Grace‘s final season — she will miss two — and fans think it’s because of her rumored feud with the show’s costar Debra Messing.
The pair were said to be at odds once the public noticed Megan was no longer following Debra or costar Sean Hayes on Instagram. If you go to her profile, you’ll also notice that none of her castmates have opted to follower her either. However, the 60-year-old star has continued to follow costar Eric McCormack, who previously tried to squash all the reports about her rumored feud with Debra.
“It seems crazy. It is crazy!” Eric explained to Us Weekly about idea of the ladies not getting along. “I think people worried about that entirely too much.”
All of the worrying has apparently caused Megan to take a leave of absence from season 11 of Will & Grace, according to TVLine. Since she won’t be on set as much as her costars, Megan will be excluded from two episodes from the season.
“She really helped, and I’ll never forget how she was there for me. Megan’s my heart. She’s been a good friend,” Shelley previously recalled to Closer Weekly.
The Parks and Recreation alum was such a “good friend” to Shelley that she drove her to the doctor whenever she experienced some medical complications. Other than Megan, Shelley could always rely on her loving husband, Walter Dominguez, for support.
“He’s the most caring person I’ve ever known. He’s so affectionate, which is a biggie when you’re going through something like cancer,” she told Closer at the time. “Every day is a new opportunity. This is a tough journey to go through. You need to smile as much as possible to make it a bit easier.”
If Megan and Debra are at odds, we hope they can resolve their issues!
