LOS ANGELES -- Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams play feuding ex-TV partners on an episode of Nickelodeon's Sam & Cat, but they brush aside any comparison to their past.
The former Laverne & Shirley stars, who back in the day of their 1976-83 sitcom were reported to have crossed swords, said they were never enemies and remain friends despite lingering suggestions to the contrary.
"That was rumours. Any show you work on for eight years, you're gonna argue at some point," said Marshall. "Way overblown."
Williams agreed, but added a bit of detail.
"Yes, it was a bit overblown," she said. The actress added that she and Marshall have "very different personalities" with contradictory styles of working, which sometimes led to on-set clashes.
That said, Williams regularly visits Marshall's house to watch and discuss TV.
