Bush, 35, detailed her experiences on Sirius XM's Andy Cohen Live, where she recalled how she had to hit when he groped her.

"The first time grabbed my a**, I hit him in front of six other producers, and I hit him f**hard," Bush said, according to

"We knew about things he'd say to people, we knew about, like, the late-night texts, we knew when he was super-obsessed with one girl on our show that he started trying to bang down her hotel room door in the middle of the night. She had to be moved, her rooms were moved. And then her boyfriend came and stayed with her the next month and literally, like, it almost came to fisticuffs between the two of them," she added.

"We're not the only group of girls that's ever had a boss who was a pig. That show for us was very interesting because at times it was wonderful and at times it really wasn't. Our writers' room was in LA, so we had plenty of time where (Schwahn) wasn't on set."

When asked why she did not quit the show, Bush said, "Why am I supposed to suffer and kill my own career because somebody else can't keep their d**k in their pants?... It's not fair to make everybody suffer because one person can't rein their entitlement in.
