Shannen vs Tori

Shannen Doherty was furious when she found out her former Beverly Hills 90210' co-star Tori Spelling made fun of her on her new TV show So NoTMRIous’. The betrayal came as a double blow to the star because Tori had specifically told Shannen she would never say a bad word about her on the series. Shannen explains, “Tori sent me a tape of the pilot and a very, very, very small note asking me to do the show, promising that she would never say a bad word about me ever, and we used to be best friends, and still care about each other.” Shannen declined Tori’s offer, citing a “self-imposed hiatus” from acting. She continues, “I don’t know if it was something taken personally or maybe it was ‘If we make fun of her, it will bring in the ratings and the publicity.’ It did hurt. I hope it helped her. If mentioning my name made people write about it, then great. Good for you. I get it. It’s a business.” [8 June 2006]
