Margulies, 49, tried to temper the rumors at the New Yorker Festival on Sunday, denying a feud.
“It’s totally gossip,” she said, according to Vulture. “I feel people just like to have gossip or make something into something that isn’t there. There’s no animosity on my part. It’s a shame, because I wonder if it was two men, when one finds out that he f—ed his best friend’s wife, if it would get that same attention, you know what I mean?”

The Emmy winner also suggested Panjabi, 43, was too busy shooting Netflix’s crime thriller The Fall: “You also have to remember, there’s difficulty … [Panjabi] was also doing another show, called The Fall. I went along with whatever [creator Robert King] asked me to do and I did it happily.”
But Panjabi shot down Margulies’ version of events Monday, tweeting that The Fall “was not even in production at that time and I was in New York ready to film the scene!”
The Good Wife airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.
