Michael Chiklis and Candice Bergen have two very different recollections of their time together on “Murphy Brown”.
Begen recently said Chiklis was her least favourite “Murphy Brown” guest star. She made the remark during a recent appearance with Faith Ford on “Watch What Happens Live!” with Andy Cohen.
“I heard this and I was so horrified,” Chiklis told “People Now” after the fact. “When I did ‘Murphy Brown’ Candice Bergen was so phenomenal to me and so welcoming. She brought me through and introduced me to everybody.”
“The thing that makes me think Faith [Ford] is mistaken is about her memory is because she said I was one of her assistants,” he noted. “I was not one of her assistants, so maybe she is misconstruing me for someone else.”
Chiklis went so far as to reach out to Bergen: “I remember it as being a euphoric and beautiful experience. It broke my heart frankly. I reached out to her and she never responded.”
The actor’s resume includes roles in “The Commish”, “The Shield”, “No Ordinary Family”, “Vegas” and “Gotham”.
