Trina McGee says she has a better relationship with her “Boy Meets World” co-stars now after opening up about the treatment she received from them.
McGee, 50, who appeared on the original show and a 2015 reboot, said that Will Friedle, who allegedly called her “Aunt Jemima” backstage, and Danielle Fishel, who treated her rudely, have reached out to make amends.
“[Friedle] wrote a long email to me,” McGee told Yahoo Entertainment. “He said that it was a journey for him since that day that he had called me Aunt Jemima. And it was a journey of thinking about himself, thinking about what he’s been taught as acceptable to other cultures … what might hurt people.”
On Twitter last month, Fishel, 39, who played one of the lead characters, Topanga Lawrence, copped to acting “rude, cold & distant” towards McGee when the two met again on the set of the show’s reboot “Girl Meets World,” which she says was the result of a situation in her personal life.
“My relationship with [Fishel] right now is decent. We’re very complimentary of each other,” McGee said in her most recent interview. “She goes out of her way to say, ‘Hey, are you OK?’ … so I’m not trying to hang around and have a grudge against the girl or anything, I’m just slowly trying to take steps to trusting.”
But despite her mended relationship with Fishel and Friedle, who played Eric Matthews on the show, there’s still one member of the case she doesn’t have a relationship with.
“I do not talk to Ben Savage at all,” she said.
In a since-deleted tweet, McGee originally named “three acting colleagues” as the source of her discomfort on the original set. In another (also now-deleted) tweet, she absolved Rider Strong, 40, who played her boyfriend, Shawn Hunter, of poor behavior, which leaves Savage, 39 — who was the show’s lead, Cory — in the crosshairs.
Page Six has reached out to Savage for comment.
