Diane Lockhart may have to intervene on this one. Archie Panjabi caught Good Wife fans off guard on Monday, Oct. 5, when she finally spoke up about that alleged feud between her and former costar Julianna Margulies.

As previously reported, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress, 43, unexpectedly refuted Margulies’ recent claims that there was no feud at all between them. In a Vulture interview, Margulies said that Panjabi’s hectic schedule was why the two stars were unable to film a scene together last season.

“Was not even in production at that time,” Panjabi countered, retweeting the original article on Monday. “and I was in New York ready to film the scene!”

Margulies, 49, has led the CBS drama as attorney Alicia Florrick since 2009. Panjabi, who played investigator Kalinda Sharma — and whose character had a friendship-killing fling with Alicia’s husband Peter (Chris Noth) — left the series in Season 6. (The Alicia-Kalinda scene in question — the women were shot separately using green screens — was Panjabi’s final show moment.)

The ER alum has yet to respond to Panjabi’s tweet, but die-hard Good Wife fans certainly have. Some even are suspecting that a rivalry began when Panjabi won a 2010 Emmy for her supporting role before Margulies did. (Margulies won Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series the following year.)
