Jeri Ryan reveals the feud between Mulgrew and her

Jeri Ryan reveals the feud between Mulgrew and her
In a pretty revealing interview on Aisha Tyler's podcast Girl on Guy, Ryan (7 0f 9) speaks up about the four year long feud between her and Mulgrew. She doesn't say her name, but it is clear that she is talking about Mulgrew. Things got so bad that Ryan was considering not returning for season 7, but she had a family member get sick, so she signed on. Ryan was really hurt by the down right hostile environment that Mulgrew presented to Ryan at every turn. It is hard working with someone that hates you, I've done that before.

 As Wang stated, things got so bad on the set between the two that no one wanted to be around there when they filmed scenes.
Even Mulgrew has spoken many times about being displeased with a sexed up female character on the show. From Trek Movie.com, ((Mulgrew: I found that that was hard, Jeri notwithstanding. Certainly, I could see with my own eyes that she was a va-va-va-voom and beautiful-beautiful bombshell of a girl. Sexuality was brought into Voyager, and that’s what I resented ))
However, did Mulgrew need to treat Ryan that way? It just seems very catty to me. I think I've lost a bit of respect for Mulgrew after hearing this interview. If she had such an issue with the direction of the show, she should have taken it out on the producers and not Ryan. I remember hearing that Ryan distanced herself from the show and the franchise for years after the show ended. She was supposed to have a cameo in Star Trek Nemesis, but turned them down. It was only recently that she started showing up for conventions again.
However, Mulgrew is right too as far as show losing something when they brought in Seven in a catsuit. That was downright stupid. She couldn't wear normal clothes, Braga? A woman can be sexy just dressing normally. I think they could have handled the transition of Seven better and perhaps not fire one of their other cast members. They added Worf to DS9 without throwing away a member of the team.

Yes, yes, Mulgrew should have brought it up with the producer... that Jeri Ryan was fucking.
