Selena Gomez regrets losing touch with Wizards Of Waverly Place Cast

Selena Gomez is taking time to reflect on her role as the star of “The Wizards of Waverly Place” with more than a decade’s worth of hindsight.

The Disney Channel series, which ran from 2007 to 2012, followed Alex Russo (played by Gomez), a New York teenager with magical powers who is training to be a magician with her brothers Justin (David Henrie ) and Max (Jake T. Austin). During its four-season run, the show received plenty of critical awards and won three Emmys.

This week, Gomez got a chance to reunite with two of her “Wizards of Waverly Place” co-stars, David DeLuise and Jennifer Stone, for a candid chat. The actress and singer appeared on DeLuise’s show Monday and on Stone’s “Wizards of Waverly Pod” podcast, where she was asked about her “biggest mistake.”

“You probably won’t stay in touch with you,” Gomez explained. “I think I was slowly embarrassed. I felt ashamed of the decisions I had made.”

She went on to note: “I didn’t want you to see me in the state I was in, because, A, you would have told me the truth, which scares me, and B, I didn’t want to. let you down.”

Gomez did not elaborate on what, specifically, she was embarrassed about. Released last year, her Apple TV+ documentary “Selena Gomez: My Mind and Me” explores her relationship with mental health after being diagnosed with lupus and bipolar disorder.

Gomez’s revelation this week seemed to strike a chord with DeLuise, who played her character’s father, Jerry Russo, on “Wizards of Waverly Place.”

“I appreciate what you said,” he said. “To be honest, there were times when I was like: ‘Did we stop being friends because I didn’t tell her what she wanted to hear?'”

While Gomez and her co-stars may have parted ways, she nonetheless said she was “very grateful and happy” for her time on “Wizards of Waverly Place,” noting: “I think I felt safe, and that’s a very difficult thing for me. to feel.”

“You loved me so much, and that’s all I could ask for,” she said.

Fortunately, fans can rest assured that the “Wizards of Waverly Pod” episode will end with Gomez making arrangements to meet up with DeLuise and Stone when she returns to Los Angeles. She is currently filming the third season of Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” with Steve Martin and Martin Short in New York.
