Shannen Doherty calls Paris Hilton’s sex tape with her ex ‘disgusting’

Shannen Doherty, 37, was married to porn purveyor Rick Salomon, 40, for just nine months in 2002. (She still lasted longer with him than Pamela Anderson, who filed for divorce 10 weeks after they were married late last year, took it back, then ultimately obtained an annulment five months later.)

Doherty talked about her brief marriage to Salomon in an interview with Details Magazine. It sounds like they had a blast together, but once the initial euphoria was over their relationship crashed and burned. Salomon is the co-“star” and the person who filmed Paris Hilton’s sex tape, 1 Night In Paris. While he initially filed suit against the company that sold the tape, and against Paris’ family for sullying his name by claiming that he was behind its release, he eventually cashed in and sold the blue film through his own company and made millions.

In a new interview with Details, Shannen Doherty admits, “I haven’t made the best choices in men.”

(She famously married George Hamilton’s son, Ashley, in 1993 after two weeks of dating. They split seven months later.)

But out of all of her past romances, Doherty says she has no regrets over Rick Salomon, who appeared in the infamous Paris Hilton sex tape.

“There was something that Rick provided that was amazing to me,” the currently single star tells Details.

Still, she adds, “I look at what he did [with Hilton] and think, ‘God, that’s disgusting.'”

But during their 2002 marriage (which was later annulled), “I never had someone make me laugh so much. I was madly in love. It was a really hard marriage. When it ended, it was a heart-crushing thing.”

As for her future on CW’s 90210, she says, “We all agreed we’d see how it goes.”

She said she wouldn’t have done the show if her character Brenda “was stuck in the same spot.

The last time we heard from Doherty about her stint on the new 90210 she said that she had another project and couldn’t commit to new episodes. There were rumors that she was dropped due to similar bad behavior on set that got her canned from the first series. Now she’s saying she’s allowed to stay on the show on a trial basis. I guess we know now that her excuse about the other series she was working on was bogus.

    WOW! He’s hot in the bottom picture! I’d have fun being married to him tooooo!

  2. Syko says:

    Right there with you, rules! He does look like he’d be a lot of fun.

    I think the one making poor choices in the opposite gender here is Rick. He sure knows how to pick women, huh?

    What kills me about this article is the talk of “annulments”. People get married for months and months and then get annulments, not divorces. What gives? My first marriage crashed and burned after only 9 months. It was embarrassing and very sad, but we divorced. There wasn’t even a question of pretending that we had grounds for an annulment. You fall in love, you get married, it doesn’t work out, you suck it up and divorce, you don’t make up some reason for an annulment so you somehow come out looking better than you think you would have otherwise. ???

    Can someone explain this to me?

    For me, his voice and general air of creepiness totally overwhelm any appearance of “fun,” even in pictures from six years ago.

  5. Syko says:

    Darlene, I have no explanation for this at all. Probably the same set of laws that allow you to make another person into a vegetable with your reckless driving and then serve a few months in jail and go free. Bah.

    I’ve never heard his voice, just reacting to the partially unclothed body, Kate. You get like this when you suffer from involuntary celibacy.

    I’ll go take a cold shower and think about butterflies, and I’ll get back to normal.

    Syko, I hadn’t seen these pictures before today, but a year (or two?) ago I saw an interview with him in which he discussed the sex tape he made with Paris. Shudders all around, and not the good kind.

  7. anony says:

    I dunno, the creepy factor for me is his perpetual knit skull cap. Like he’s trying to look like a precocious boy bander. haha. He looks…touched. Not the sharpest guy..
