BOY Meets World star Danielle Fishel has been slammed by her former co-star Maitland Ward, who accused her of ostracizing her female castmates during the show’s reboot.
Maitland has opened up about her relationship with her ex-co-star in her new memoir, which was released on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
At one point in the book, “Rated X: How Porn Liberated Me from Hollywood,” the actress-turned-adult-film-star slammed Danielle for her alleged treatment of her and the other women on the show.
Maitland, 45, highlighted her interaction with Danielle at a reunion with the full Boy Meets World cast, where the 41-year-old appeared to ignore her former co-star.
“Danielle didn’t speak to me at all, which I found odd. She barely admitted I was even there. I hadn’t seen her since I got married but we didn’t have any bad feelings or bad blood,” the ex-TV star wrote.
Maitland theorized that Danielle’s behavior may have been directed primarily against her female colleagues.
She claimed the Disney star wasn’t keen on sharing the screen with the other main cast of the Girl Meets World spin-off.
“I don’t know if that’s true, but there were whispers that she didn’t want any of the previous female performers to share the screen with her,” Maitland said.
“That’s why her character would never interact with Trina [McGee]When Trina was on the show, she didn’t like it when I showed up on set.”
Girl Meets World aired on Disney Channel for three seasons starting in 2014.
The show followed Danielle’s character Topanga Lawrence and her on-screen husband, Corey Mathews, played by Ben Savage, as they navigated adulthood and the upbringing of their two children.
Many of the original Boy Meets World cast made guest appearances, with the exception of Maitland, who did not return.
The Bold and the Beautiful alum explained her reasoning in the book and said she wanted to continue from her role as Rachel McGuire on the series.
Maitland starred alongside Will Friedle, Matthew Lawrence and Rider Strong in the last two seasons of the popular sitcom.
She has since transitioned into the adult entertainment industry, an experience she detailed in her memoir.
In her book, Maitland also cast shadows on MTV alum Farrah Abraham, 31, for her past sex tape, calling the film a “disaster.”
Farrah was fired from the Teen Mom franchise after releasing a 2013 sex tape titled Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom.
Maitland slammed the reality star’s work while discussing a sex scene that became a turning point in her pornstar career.
“Anyone can leak a sex tape, but the backdoor was still too taboo to be considered viable. And MTV reality star Farrah Abraham doesn’t count. Backdoor Teen Mom was a disaster,” she wrote.
Farrah starred in MTV’s 16 & Pregnant and later Teen Mom OG from 2009 to 2017.
The network fired Farrah in 2017 due to her decision to work in the adult entertainment industry, according to legal documents obtained by The Blast.
