Dating a coworker inherently comes with certain risks, particularly when that coworker happens to be Chad Michael Murray. Chad’s one-time wife and longtime One Tree Hill co-star, Sophia Bush, recently dished about her and CMM’s tumultuous relationship.

When asked by a Watch What Happens Live viewer in Michigan when she last spoke to Chad, Sophia decided to take the high road...kind of.

“That’s such an interesting question,” she said after letting loose a huge laugh. “My mother once said to me that ‘if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all’ so cheers to you in Michigan. I’m going to have a little rosé for you, girl.” Sophia than took a sip of her wine as the audience cheered its approval.

It’s been almost eight years since Sophia and Chad split after just five months of marriage, but the end of their time as man and wife didn’t mean the end of their time together. The couple continued working alongside one another on One Tree Hill until Chad left the show in 2009, an awkward-sounding arrangement Sophia says actually helped her “deal with it.”

“At the end of the day, my job is my priority,” she explains on WWHL, “and so I think at the end of it, it really let me just let go of it.”

A little rosé probably helped, too.
