Tori Spelling Opens Up About Shannen Doherty Feud Rumors From '90210' Days -- 'It Was Never With Us'

tori spelling addresses shannen doherty drama

Tori Spelling is backtracking on previous statements (or lack thereof) about Shannen Doherty!
By the time the Brenda Walsh portrayer left the Beverly Hills: 90210 crew in 1994, it was rumored that she had become difficult to work with, and had even gotten into a physical fight with costar Jennie Garth.

On Monday’s episode of the Daddy Issues podcast, hosted by Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott, the mother-of-five is clearing the air:

“We were really close on the show. Like, she was one of my best friends. And then when she left the show [in 1994], there [were] all these press things that came out, like, this rivalry, and it was never with us. But the press makes what they want.”

The Donna Martin portrayer clarified that at the time, she couldn’t set the record straight because of a strict no-comment rule:

“You don’t want to say anything because you’re told, like, ‘Don’t say anything.’ Like, ‘Nothing! Say nothing, and it will go away!’ But it kind of lives on whenever a story comes out. It doesn’t really go away. So yeah, no, she’s great. I saw her recently. She’s an awesome person.”

We can assume this episode was prerecorded, as Miz Doherty recently joined the rest of her BH90210 costars in Vancouver for filming. However, history tends to repeat itself and the road to the revival hasn’t been without drama!
As we reported, it was said in May that multiple writers for the show, as well as show runner Patrick Sean Smith, had already left the writer’s room due to disputes with two of the show’s lead actresses.
Radar Online insider recently said that this time, the tables are turned and all the drama has stemmed from Miz Spelling, who apparently did not want to play a version of herself that hit too close to reality, which is how the writers wrote her character:

“Tori didn’t want to portray her real life, which is being broke and on the D-list. She wanted to live in a big mansion in Beverly Hills and show the life she envisioned her character would be leading — a life much more glamorous and wealthy than her real life. The script now is being written by writers who are taking direction from Tori and the cast and it has been a s**t show on set trying to make it work.”


Hopefully these ladies (and the whole cast) has put the past in the past and has moved on from the drama!
