Shannen Doherty goes to police about paparazzi; cops don’t know who she is

I understand that as a celebrity you probably get pretty used to people knowing who you are. Everywhere you go – whether you’re pumping your gas or buying tampons at the drugstore – some stranger is chatting you up, asking for your autograph. After a couple months, you probably start to assume that people just KNOW who you are. And if you’re an A or B-list celeb, that’s probably not an unreasonable assumption.

But what happens when you’re located below the C-list? Well, apparently you can embarrass the crap out of yourself, if Shannen Doherty is any example. Apparently Doherty thought the paparazzi were chasing her. And to be fair the photographers over at TMZ don’t seem to have much else to do, so it might be true. When Shannen went into a police station to complain, the cops were kinda perplexed – they had no idea why photographers would follow her. Because they had no idea who she even was.

That new “90210″ show can’t come along fast enough for Shannen Doherty.

We know Shannen went to the Sheriff’s Department in Lost Hills (Malibu) to complain about paparazzi following her. The cops who talked to her were baffled … because they had no idea who she was.

The deputy at the front desk confessed he had no idea who she was. Shannen retorted that she was on TV. The deputy, in a scene reminiscent of “Take the Money and Run,” began asking others around him if they knew who she was, but none did.

We’re told Shannen then left in a huff.

Ouch. But frankly I don’t find it all that surprising. Even when she was on 90210, Shannen wasn’t that interesting looking. I think she only got so much attention for being a legendary terror to work with. Something tells me that even once the new 90210 starts up, not a lot of people are going to know who the hell is. What’s funny is that she hasn’t figured that out yet.

    I loved her in Charmed, but i haven’t heard much about her since then- just that breaking up with Shannen Doherty show she had. Poor Chicky.

  2. Fem says:

    don’t feel sorry for her, thats like feeling sorry for Paris going to jail!

    people have always said her face was ‘off’, not symmetrical. There was even a comment by Will on Will & Grace. Whatever! I think she is a really cool looking person. She will never have cheekbone problems. Her, or Deborah Harry. This is an American trait. Europeans don’t have Native American genes in them. This makes so many Americans special in the global atmosphere. People who are mixed w/Native American traits have the best cheekbones & hottest asses. Yes, this includes our Black community as well. The only down side is a propensity for addiction, ‘specially in alchy-ness. Megan Fox & Lynda Carter & your own Blanche Deveroux (1/2 Native), all have the same high cheekbones. Go Google them. Hey, if Madonna is some Native as is Angelina, well, this counrty is living proof that the Indian is in all of us to some degree. Even Burt Reynolds is a little Indian boy. See? America.

    “Shannen wasn’t that interesting looking”

    I’d argue THAT point…once you notice what’s going on with her eyes, you will never, no matter how hard you try, be able NOT to notice. 8O

  5. CiCi says:

    Rio – I completely agree. Shannen once pointed this out in an interview back in the height of 90210 days as a feature that she actually thinks makes her more interesting. Ever since that moment, I can’t help but see it and it bugs me to no end.

  6. RubySue says:

    Classic. Just effing classic.

  7. vdantev says:

    Kinda cute. Impossible to keep employed though, apparently. She even epic failed her hosting gig on Scare Tactics, now they have that unfunny drunken Tracy Morgan doing it.

  8. Amy says:

    @V – I love Tracy Morgan! Only because of 30 Rock, though. He acts the same in everything and it cracks me up. The guy is nuts. :D

    Am I missing something about Shannen, though? What’s wrong with her eyes? Honestly, I’ve never watched any of her stuff. So, I’d be in the same boat as those cops. Speaking of which, “HA HA” in my best Nelson Muntz voice to Shannen Doherty. :)

  9. Ruby says:

    >>What’s wrong with her eyes?

    Basically her parents should have named her Isaiah instead of Shannen.

    (As in ‘one Isaiah than the other…’)

  10. vdantev says:

    Shannen has a lazy eye, Amy.

  11. Ruby says:

    Lazy? More like upwardly mobile… :-)

  12. Carlos says:

    Shannen bought herself a spectacular boob job a few years ago. Not overly big, but perfect for her body. Now nobody gives a crap about her. It’s a shame.

  13. Nan says:

    carlos & Ruby. That’s all.

  14. misti says:

    I think she’s great, but I don’t know why she went off charmed

  15. Kelli says:

    If she wasn’t in Charmed, I wouldn’t know who the heck she was. I like her character, Prue, though.
