Shannen Doherty booted from 90210 for bad behavior – again

Shannen Doherty claimed that she had another project in the works and that’s why she couldn’t stay on CW’s 90210 remake beyond her initial four episode commitment. The truth is that she wasn’t wanted back after she showed major attitude and tried to rewrite her lines, reports the Enquirer. In the end, producers decided she was more trouble than she was worth and she got canned:

Fourteen years after she was fired from “Beverly Hills, 90210” for bad behavior, the show’s given Shannen Doherty the boot again!

The producers of the new “90210” originally wanted Shannen, 37, to appear for the entire season, but the Enquirer learned she was so difficult on the set that producers gave her the heave-ho as soon as they could…

“She argued with people, hated some of the scripts, and wanted things done her way. She pranced around the set like she owned it and often ordered changes in her dialogue, which cost time and money.

“After the first taping, the brass decided she just wasn’t worth the hassle.”

Many of the cast and crew did not like working with her, according to the insider, and as The Enquirer reported recently, “90210’s” rising young star Shenae Grimes clashed with her immediately.

It seemed like Doherty has changed since her first stint on 90210, but if this report is true she’s just about the same.

Mild 90210 spoiler for a past episode follows
This week it was revealed on the show that Dylan McKay from the first series – played by Luke Perry- was the father of single mom Kelly Taylor’s four year old son. Jennie Garth, who plays guidance counselor Kelly, is one of the staples from the initial show and has signed on for additional episodes.

There was speculation that Perry and old costar Jason Priestley, who played Brandon Walsh, might revise their roles too. Luke Perry has ruled out an appearance however, and Priestley has also declined, according to sources quoted by E! Online. Perry has an upcoming guest role on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and has starring roles in two smaller films out later this year. Priestley has been doing television work and also has a smaller film coming out. They’re both probably hoping to distance themselves from the roles which made them famous in the 90s.

Shannen Doherty is shown outside The Late Show on 9/4/08. Credit: RAM/Fame

    Methinks the “Enquirer” needs to dig deeper. My cousin, who works on the show (craft services), says SD is nothing but nice and zen-like and the show would *love* for her to stay because ratings will plummet when she leaves. Period.

  2. Jess Doherty says:

    She looks great. That dress is very cute!

  3. nina says:

    I agree. I think she is beautiful, talented, and people should stop using her to milk their own plummeting ratings!

  4. kate says:

    love her and all her diva ways, true or not!

  5. anony says:

    And Shenae Grimes needs to get a goddamned stage name. Stat.

  6. ER says:

    I agree – Grimes doesn’t lend itself to positive images.

  7. sol says:

    Well at least she’s on the tabloids again and made her comeback.Maybe if it wasn’t for the show we wouldn’t know where or what she was doing.Now for sure being again on the spotlight she has other offers.I would love to see Kelly and Dylan together on the show!!!:)

  8. Syko says:

    I can’t stand her. Never could. Those misfit eyes, but mostly her attitude.

  9. vdantev says:

    Shows her good taste in getting fired from a stupid stupid stupid show.

  10. Exiled says:

    She’s got Paris Hilton eyes. Her eyes are so far apart they almost touch her ears. I haven’t liked her since she left Little House on the Prairie.

  11. sassyspank says:

    who cares.

  12. ff says:

    Even if she was ‘zen-like’ the fact that this sort or rep follows her from show to show (the first 90210, Charmed, and now this one) kind of suggests even if she is nice she rubs some people up the wrong way.

  13. Jody says:

    How can you say that she has Paris Hilton eyes? They’re not too far apart? Paris Hilton looks like a coyote ate half her face, and they strapped her skin tighter to cover the hole.

  14. caffie says:

    Here’s my surprised face… 😐

  15. Trillion says:

    Creepy eyes, creepy thin lips. She’s just bad news.

  16. Hollz says:

    she looks better when she gives an open mouth smile.. I loved her in charmed, but that’s the only thing I’ve seen her in.

  17. Dee says:

    looks as if she has had some work done

  18. Tanille says:

    Ill still be watching when she not on i have always preferred Jennie Garth. SD looks pretty in those pictures, minus the stance in the second one she looks like shes trying to get balanced or something.

  19. Tina says:

    Maybe it’s just me, but Shannen Doherty looks Asian or half-Asian in these shots (like Lindsay Price from “Lipstick Jungle,” who is actually half-Korean and half-white.)

  20. Alecto says:

    Her mouth looks funny.

  21. huh says:

    I think she had a face lift for her return to tv and it did not turn out well. She looks bizarre.

  22. mom32 says:

    Anything to get her name and picture published. This is so old. Maybe she can have a total break down, shave her head and go over the top with drugs. Nothing wrong with that.

  23. Julie says:

    Dee — I was thinking the same thing. 37 is kind of young for that, no?

  24. raven says:

    She does look bizarre. I could’t stand her on the original show and I still can’t stand her.

  25. Jeanne says:

    Good for her! At least she’s not a sellout. It’s nice to a celeb stay the way they are and not try to be phony or pretend they’ve mellowed with age. C’mon– Shannon is the original Lindsay Lohan and she’s never denied that she’s a troublemaker and hard to work with. I think Aaron Spelling liked her better than his own daughter! I know I like her better than horse face Tori Spelling.
