Posted Thursday January 2, 2014 2:13 PM GMT

She’s enjoyed a whole new level of career success thanks to her role on “The Newsroom,” but Olivia Munn isn’t about to let false reports of diva-like behavior go unanswered.

The “Attack of the Show” babe took to her Twitter account on Wednesday (January 1) to fire back at allegations that she’s difficult to work with.

Munn tweeted, 'Sucks 2 read b******* that’s perpetuated on blogosphere. But feels so great 2 have friends like this who stick up 4 u.”

Olivia referred to creator Aaron Sorkin’s tweet that she’s a delight to be around- “Olivia is a perfect cast member who is loved and respected by the entire cast, by the crew and the producers, by HBO and especially by me.”

Previously, Radar cited an insider as saying, “Olivia and Aaron’s relationship soured so completely during season two of The Newsroom that it created a poisonous atmosphere on the set. It affected the entire show because Olivia was written to be such a prominent player this season. But by the end of the long shoot, Aaron and Jeff were barely speaking to her, and you can expect that in the third season, her role will be greatly diminished.”
