Literally Phoebe and Claire are incredibly close friends. So: A) Phoebe wouldn’t do that to her but also B) even if Phoebe and Claire secretly did have their issues, it’s completely delusional and illogical to believe that one actress has such a hold over a TV show that she makes casting and writing decisions and decides who gets fired. Like come the fuck on! Julie may like Phoebe but it’s Julie’s show and she wouldn’t be taking orders from an actress.
A lot of people are also saying Claire was in Phoebe’s shadow but honestly, they both got pretty equal screen time. Plus, Claire was given the juicer plots involving a lot more drama and emotion because she’s very talented and can handle the intensity. The plot of the show doesn’t center around the baby anymore. The baby was the premise to get the family out to New Orleans but tbh some episodes I forget Hayley is even pregnant because the focus is on other things. After Sophie and Hayley were unlinked, the plot strayed away from being centric on her and focused a lot on the witches and Davina and Marcel and Rebekah. Rebekah had a lot of character development and backstory added as well as a ship on the show. How was she playing second fiddle to Phoebe exactly? So their point is not valid when they say the show focuses on Phoebe and therefore it’s her fault that Claire left. Because that’s not accurate either.
So there’s really no logical or accurate reasoning behind the idea that Phoebe is at fault. And honestly, people who love Claire but hate on Phoebe are idiots because do they really think Claire would appreciate people saying such terrible things about her friend? They use Phoebe as a scapegoat. But I could go on and on about the hate Phoebe receives and how much it pisses me off because I truly do love her as a person.
