Shannen Doherty won’t do more episodes of new 90210

Shannen Doherty won’t film more episodes of the new CW 90210 remake beyond the four she initially signed up for. She says it’s because she’s too busy working on other projects, and of course they wanted her back. Jennie Garth will do at least five more episodes than the six in her contract, though.

Just like Brandon, Dylan, Steve, Colin, and Matt before them, 90210’s producers just can’t get enough of Kelly. So, my sources tell me, they’ve signed Jennie Garth to appear in five episodes on top of the six to which she originally agreed.

So now we’re gonna get the Kelly-Brenda rematch we’ve all been waiting for, right?

Erm, no. Though Shannen Doherty may return later in the season, for now it appears that the first four episodes she signed on for will also be her last (the second of those episodes airs next week). “They asked me to do a lot more,” she says, but “I’m in the middle of pitching a show, [so] I couldn’t commit to more than [I did].”

EW’s Michael Ausiello goes on to recommend that Tori Spelling get some respect and the salary she deserves to be brought back on the show. Rumor had it that Tori was offered just $10-20k per episode but Jennie and Shannen were receiving something like $35-50k an episode. When Tori found out that her pay was significantly lower, she dropped out of the remake. It is thought that she might return around November in time for sweeps. The show is doing well in the ratings, but isn’t fairing as well with critics.

Shannen Doherty told EW Magazine in a joint interview with Jennie Garth a couple of weeks ago that she did not have the fistfight with Jennie that was detailed in Tori Spelling’s now number one book on the nonfiction list, sTori Telling. Doherty dismissed Spelling’s book by saying “I just don’t believe you write personal on-set experiences in a book… In 27 years of acting I’ve never sold out one of my cast members.” Maybe it’s a good thing there’s little chance these two will be working together again.

    she’s getting a little older so needs to get a new look; the jet black hair and dark eyes makeup make her look ‘hard’.

    Tori looks fantastic and she really should be paid as much as these other two…She’s a great actress..whether or not you like her personal life. Watch her series it’s fantastic.

    It’s not surprising:

    1. The show reeeeeeally sucks.
    2. She’s allergic to a steady paycheck, as she proved on Scare Tactics, Charmed, etc.

    Side note, she has a nice set of… eyes… 😳
