This is actually very touching!!
For those of you who forgot that the the original bitch on 90210, Brenda Walsh, has a heart, we suggest you read why she agreed to be on Dancing With The Stars after years of declining offers!!
Walsh, who in real life is named Shannen Doherty, says her father suffered a stroke on Christmas and she was inspired by him to compete:
“He lost his speech, he wasn’t mobile. He was really struggling, and still is. When I mentioned this to him, he got really excited, and he wanted me to do it. I thought, if my dad can fight through having a stroke and the loss of being able to communicate, I think I can do this for him. So I figured I’m going to get over my fear for him. I’m going to get in great shape, and everyone who I know who’s been on the show has had a great time. It’s with hesitation and fear, but it’s going to be good to conquer a fear.”
What an unbelievably kind and brave gesture for her dad!!
Girlfriend apparently has a big fear of live audiences, so we're sure this is going to be a real challenge!!
We believe in you, Brenda!!
If that slut Kelly Taylor can do it, you TOTALLY can!!
