Charlie Sheen, Selma Blair, Anger Management

You thought the onscreen drama was intense? It's nothing compared to to some TV show's behind-the-scenes drama!

Anger Management is the latest series to find itself making headlines for its off-camera tension as Selma Blair found herself departing the FX sitcom after reportedly going to producers with complaints about star Charlie Sheen. "We wish her the very best," Lionsgate said in a statement, confirming her departure.

Of course, Sheen is no stranger to famous feuds: CBS unceremoniously fired Sheen after he went on a weeklong rant about Two and a Half Men's creator, Chuck Lorre. But he isn't the only star who's found himself battling it out with his TV show!

Most recently, Chevy Chase made headlines when his angry voicemails to Community creator Dan Harmon were leaked; while Harmon was the first to exit the NBC series (He is officially returning to helm season five), it was announced that Chase would be leaving the show after he had an outburst on set. Such big drama for a quirky little sitcom, no?!

HBO's Girls also saw the departure of an original castmember when Christopher Abbott decided not to return for season three after "creative differences" with Lena Dunham.

Of course, there's enough behind-the-scenes tension to go around on the drama side of things: Isaiah Washington was fired from Grey's Anatomy after he reportedly directing the word "f----t" at T.R. Knight, his openly gay costar, and Lisa Edelstein abruptly left Fox's House after salary disputes.

And we haven't even gotten to Nicollette Sheridan vs. Desperate Housewives and David Duchovny vs. The X-Files yet!
