The Charmed actress has been all over NY recently, promoting her new memoir fearless and her E! documentary series Citizen Rose. Isn't staying silent exactly what they and all of us are trying to change? Most often, the viewer is her interlocutor: She peers directly into the camera, her big brown eyes daring us to confront the woman behind the headlines.
However, during her next interview, she opened up about the spat that took place on Thursday and called the trans woman a "paid plant".
