The Halliwell sisters had a "Charmed" life on television, but how did the actresses' real-life romances work out? Let's take a magical glimpse into their love lives.

In recent years, the reboot of “Charmed” caused a division among fans. Some people love, some people hate; however, let’s have a look at what the cast members have been up to since then!

SHANNEN DOHERTY / PRUE HALLIWELL

It was a shock to hear that Shannen left the show at the peak of its popularity. In reality, life on the set of Charmed was anything but charming.

Doherty had an off-screen feud with co-star Alyssa Milano, which went so far that one day Milano gave producers an ultimatum that either Doherty should leave the show or she would.

The real reason behind their conflict was never revealed. Although a year later, after leaving the show, Doherty unexpectedly got married to famous poker player Rick Salomon but the two split up after just nine months.

Shannen started her own reality show, “Breaking Up with Shannen Doherty,” but it was a failure, being stopped after just one season.

Shannen even appeared on “Dancing with the Stars,” but her couple was the first to be eliminated... At least her personal life got a new sparkle, as she met photographer Kurt Iswarienko - and they got married.

2015 brought her another challenge. Doherty was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she went for chemotherapy and radiotherapy following surgery; and in two years, she announced that her cancer was in remission.

The diagnosis changed Shannen's attitude towards her relationship and her life entirely. She finally became friends with the people she once disliked the most, including her "Charmed" co-star Alyssa Milano.

Shannen hoped for the better, but her new diagnosis last year revealed that her cancer returned early in 2020. She worked on the reboot of “Beverly Hills,” “90210,” and decided to keep it secret.

ALYSSA MILANA / PHOEBE HALLIWELL

In addition to continuing her amazing work as an actress, after the show ended, Alyssa also became a successful entrepreneur. Together with her Charmed sis Holly Marie Combs, Milano released a lingerie line.

The actress also became a world-famous philanthropist, as she started working with UNICEF on ongoing global initiatives.

Besides, Milano published a book about her baseball passion, “Safe at Home: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic.” Her sudden love for baseball was not accidental.

Milano's love interest, David Bugliari, is a sports agent for the Creative Artists Agency. After the three-year love affair, Alyssa decided to tie the knot with David.

Two years later, the actress gave birth to their first son – Milo. And in 2014, the family welcomed a daughter who was named Elizabella Dylan.

HOLLY MARIE COMBS / PIPER HALLIWELL

Right after “Charmed” finished its run, Holly Marie Combs focused on motherhood, as in the same year of the show's last episode, Combs gave birth to her second son Riley.

And only two years later, she and her then-husband David Donoho welcomed their third child, one more boy - Kelley James to the family.

Despite the happy news, their marriage soon fell apart. Holly and David filed for divorce in 2011. Meanwhile, Combs was signed for the series “Pretty Little Liars,” where she played the character of Ella Montgomery.

In 2018, Combs became engaged to Mike Ryan, and the lovebirds then married in September 2019. They held a private outdoor ceremony in Carmel, California, and are still very much in love.

ROSE MCGOWAN / PAIGE MATTHEWS

McGowan wasn’t living a “Charmed” existence while starring on The WB’s hit supernatural show. The actress confessed that two years in a row during the filming of “Charmed,” she struggled with 102-degree fevers.

High expectations caused the stress to build, as everyone looked at McGowan to become a better version of Shannen Doherty on the set amid their public feud.

After her famous relationship with Marilyn Manson, she had love affairs with men, but all of them were short-term. For some time, Rose was in a relationship with artist Davey Detail.

Her love affair with Detail even evolved into marriage, but two years later, the star filed divorce papers. McGowan was in a relationship with a young non-binary person model Rain Dove, but they split early in 2020.

BRIAN KRAUSE / LEO WYATT

We loved Leo as the best possible husband for Piper, but Brian was more in love with another Haliwell sister in reality. And guess who?

It was Alyssa Milano! Back in those times, Alyssa had just gotten divorced from Cinjun Tate, and in the same year, Brian got divorced from his wife, Beth.

Sadly for fans, after his last relationship with Alyssa, Krause is very private with his personal life. Though it seems the actor did not get married for a second time.

Since “Charmed,” he has made an appearance in many movies and television shows like “Mad Men,” “Castle,” “Another World,” “Highway to Heaven,” and others.

JULIAN MCMAHON / COLE TURNER / BELTHAZOR

It's no doubt that you still remember that romantic and tragic love story between Phoebe and Belthazor. In reality, the Australian actor is even more romantic than his character.

Love has been all around McMahon throughout his whole career. The man was married 3 times. First, he wed Kylie Minogue's sister, Dannii.

Then there was the actress Brooke Burns with whom he had a daughter, Madison. Despite the divorce, they remained on good terms.

The actor then met the model, Kelly Paniagua. They dated for 11 years until Julian finally decided to pop the question for the third time. The actor did it during a flight, with the help of his daughter Maddie!
